Had someone described the sound of Metronomy I would probably have overlooked it as its not a genre of music I normally look for. However a brief appearance on BBC's 2011 Glastonbury coverage,combined with strong reviews had me curious. The sound is hard to descibe but I would say electronic disco combined with sounds of the 60's,70s and early electronic 80s. Right from the opening track - this album has you hooked from the word go, extremely creative, original and fresh - bringing together a collection various sounds from your lifetime and somehow pulling them all into one album. 'We broke free', 'Everything goes my way', 'The Look' and 'The Bay' being my personal highlights. This album is mind blowingly good and easily the best album Ive heard of 2011 - a future classic!
