sigh. The Streets are one of my all time faves but this ain’t it. It’s not like every album is worse than the last either because I actually think Computers & Blues is the 3rd best after the first two. This however is easily the worst of the 6. The tracks with Idles, Jimothy Lacoste, Rob Harvey and Hak Baker somewhat salvage the album to an extent but not too much.
The first Metronomy album I listened to. Originally gave it a 75 as it was good but not amazing with only a couple stand out tracks and I much preferred Nights Out overall. In the time since then they've become one of my favourite bands and I've seen them live so thought it's a good idea to come back and do another up-to-date rating.
NEW SCORE: 85
