A more commercial offering

First of all thank you to Mr Dodds for his comprehensive review but this album failed to impress me. That's not to say it isn't a good album, just that Metric didn't go in a direction that impressed me.
Overall the album is good and very listenable but I missed the clever lyrics of earlier efforts ('Any speed on your knees is crawling' - brilliant) and being sythesizer based it lacks any really distinctive riffs.
I was going to give it four points until I reached the self indulgent last five tracks which are reflections on five of the other songs and add nothing to the album at all. I'm just glad they are all grouped together at the end, shuffle will not be deployed.
