This new Metric album, their first for three years, has the band’s classic combination of synthesisers and drum machines with live band and acoustic instrumentation, all lead by Emily Haines’ vocals. Pagans In Vegas is a slick synth-pop slab, released by Crystal Math Music as a CD or as a coloured-vinyl double LP.
6/10 Jack Customer review, 29th September 2015
Let me start by saying I love the production on this album. From the various synthesisers and keyboards to the computerised beeps and loops, it's a rich palate of sounds and textures to explore. Emily's voice sounds great as usual and the passion is still there. Unfortunately none of that matters when the songs themselves are rather dull and undercooked. There are a few gems sprinkled here and there, such as "Fortunes" and "Too Bad, So Sad", which is about as close to an actual rock song as Pagans in Vegas gets.
