Celebrating a decade with Metronomy's breakthrough album! This 10th anniversary edition is pressed on double vinyl, expanded with outtakes and rarities and a custom etching on side D, housed in deluxe gatefold packaging with new liner notes and full album lyrics. Check the OG. Lab review:
Joseph Mount started Metronomy ten years ago in his bedroom as a "creative hobby," but when the taste-making Erol Alkan began playing out "You Could Easily Have Me," he saw the "commercial possibilities" of the electro-pop effort. 2 albums later, Metronomy has developed into a fully live outfit, and it brings us The English Riviera, a 11-track full-length featuring pristine synth pop sounds, on Because Music. Check out the bouncy and fun "The Look," or the laid back, slow rock stylings of "We Broke Free." "Love Underlined" is uptempo but maintains the delicate poise prevalent throughout the album. Other picks include "Corinne," "The Bay," and "She Wants." Recommended.
