I had read a tepid review of this album on a website that kept me from buying it, but then I received a promotional copy of it and gave it a listen. Turns out it's great. Simple, simple song structures with really interesting textures (or, conversely, muffled tones) that make it feel intimate. It's like they had these big songs, but their landlady told them to keep down the noise so they put their instruments under some blankets and hit the record button. Thankfully not in a lo-fi kind of way. The whole album is very cohesive yet diverse. At times there are hints of early Neil Young (if he had more groove), Talking Heads '77, The Cure and Of Montreal, but still very modern and not as derivative as I made this sentence sound. Good stuff.

The music of this band of course first came to my attention via by Cousin Pip,part of whose family hailed from Metronomy's hometown of Manchester England. She has had the privilege of seeing the band several times as a live act. It was after that introduction that I sought out their most recent album at that time,which happened to be The English Riviera. I was actually quite captivated by the fact the band seemed to be able to bring the many elements in their music which don't tend to mesh well-from the minimalist "twee pop" sound to rhythmic electronic/new wave type grooves,into clear focus within the framework of their own particular compositional and instrumental approach. When I heard a couple of weeks ago that this album was coming out it was a moment of great excitement for me-to get a chance to approach one of their albums as a brand new statement that didn't come to me from an outside source. And it was a real treat I must say.

"The Upsetter" opens the album-evoking a very different 1992 than I personally experienced of listening to Prince and the soul oriented UK band Deacon Blue and moving onto "I'm Aquarius". Those along with songs such as "Call Me","Reservoir" and "Never Wanted" all have a flavor thats not only instrumentally minimal but also compositionally as well. Very few notes are played yet,with the use of what sound like higher end 80's Casio synthesizers give it a gospel inspired instrumental flavor not dissimilar to a Hammond B-3 organ at times.

I have loved Metronomy for years, so I was anxiously awaiting their new release. Their previous album - The English Riviera - was a departure from their old lo-fi electro-sound, and to date, is my favorite album, next to Nights Out. With Love Letters, they seem to have returned to the raw, experimental sound of Pip Paine, which isn't a bad thing for fans of all of Metronomy's work, but it's definitely a reversal from the direction in which The English Riviera took us. Still - I'm jamming to Love Letters and the emotion iT conveys and I can't wait for their live tour, which never disappoints. Faves so far on the album; Month of Sundays, Love Letters, and Reservoir. Good stuff all, from a band that likes to have fun with music.

Recommended by a good friend but we have different tastes. Kinda dull and I think neither danceable nor romantic really....
