iTunes Review

After the nervous electro-quirk of Metronomy's Nights Out, is it any wonder that Joseph Mount opted for a beach holiday? A masterpiece of modern yacht rock, The English Riviera cribs studio moves from Steely Dan, unfurling sparkling guitars and keys against an inky-black backdrop of empty space. The catchy songwriting, meanwhile, is more in keeping with genial British mopers like The Smiths and Hot Chip. It's the perfect record for a day at the shore—especially if it's raining.

English revolution

Awesome album and great follow up to there first album. The Look is infectious, with some good samples and experiments throughout the album - definitely well worth many listens.

If You Haven't Heard Of This Band Then Look Up Their Album 'Nights Out'

This is the flipside of their 2009 sophomore party album 'Nights Out'. This may not get them the recognition they deserve, and I don't think it's their best album yet. However it's still a great album. If you would like to hear more from this band, then seek out their songs 'Heartbreaker', 'A Thing For Me' and 'Radio Ladio'.
