EDITORS’ NOTES

This album is Mastered for iTunes. With Synthetica, Toronto-bred electro-rockers Metric continue to blend sharp lyrics, memorable melodies, and formidable beats with modern instrumentations. “Speed the Collapse” presents an unfolding drama driven by nervous-sounding drumming; “The Wanderlust” perfectly contrasts Emily Haines’ sweet singing with the legendarily unflappable delivery of guest duet partner Lou Reed. The horns toward the end of the title track, in turn, warmly complement its raw guitar power.

Incredible Album. Not only Metric's Best, but one of the best modern albums

I have always been intrigued by Metric. Their hooks have always been clever and Emily Haines has always delivered the lyrics in unconventional and amazing ways. This album feels like what they have been building up to from the beginning. It has echoes of all of their work including "Grow Up and Blow Away". It is a rewarding album that makes me want to tell everyone that I know about it. It is perfect in many ways. It is paced extremely well, the compositions are impressive, and it made me feel good after. The message here is Metric at their best. I will let you discover what this album means to you. This is a rewarding album that you will want to own. Bravo guys. I can't say enough great things about it.

Awesome

I've been a fan of Metric ever since Old World Underground, Where Are You Now? This album has a completely new sound, and I absolutely love it. Another great album. One more reason Metric is my favorite band.

This is good for what it is, but not for me

I long for the old Metric sound, guitar in balance with electronic with Emily's voice wonderfully bridging the gap. This is a great album on its own, but between this and their last album, they are falling away from the energetic rock I identify with. I wish they would stop marketing so much, pick up the guitar and bring back that nervy sound I fell in love with. COMBAT BABY.
