EDITORS’ NOTES

On his boldest effort yet, Joe Mount looks back on simpler times. Summer 08 is a plush, gleefully eccentric set that, despite its title, echoes the sideways pop of Bowie and Japan—all while Mount reflects, semi-cheekily, on his life before fame. The result is strangely moving, from the creeping nostalgia of “Mick Slow” to the melancholic pitter-patter of the Robyn-enriched “Hang Me Out to Dry.”

so glad you are back!!

Metronomy are the best! I love how each next release shows the band’s evolution. Yet there is an obvious and understandable yet subtle harkening to earlier works. In other words, they have done well here giving us something that sounds new and fresh yet clearly and uniquely “Metronomy”.

If you liked Nights Out, you'll love this.

excellent variety in songs and great overall mood, you've GOT to try listening to this all the way through in one sitting. Lots of good vibes from Nights Out, a bit of a throwback if you've been around that long. Of course though, this is an album that is unique all on its own and is worth your money for sure. (There's a bit of that Love Letters disco vibe too, if you're into that, though its somewhat toned down.)

A bit of a let down

I don't know, maybe I got spoiled after the "English Riveria" album. To me that is one of the greatest albums, not just from Metronomy but any artist mind you. Wasn't that impressed with "Love Letters" and while this is a better effort...it still seems a bit underwelming. That's just my honest opinion.
