Some early praise for METRONOMY's LOVE LETTERS:
"…there's no one making such gorgeously melodic and wide-reaching electronic pop music quite like (Joe Mount)…Love Letters is surely his masterpiece, a potent mix of analogue synths, raw beats, folk influences and a McCartney-esque talent for tunes." - Mix Mag (9/10)
"Metronomy is effortlessly unconcerned and it's why they're different. They're a hard-working little boat from a seaside town going on a journey through an ocean of fakers, copycats, and naysayers. Insular yet inviting, experimental yet poppy, intense no previous, retro yet current, lovelorn and sexed......With every album, (Mount)'s created a distinct and vivid sonic world all of its own, set adrift from pop culture and prevailing trends." - NME
"Love Letters still sounds unquestionably like Metronomy -- with the eclectic mixture of electronica, off kilter rythyms and Mout's distinctive vocals all still present..these touches ensure that it rarely feels dour…remaining immensely listenable, infectiously catchy and at times downright fun… Pushing away the froth and frivolity, they leave a darker, more satisfying, and ultimately superior record in their wake." - Under The Radar (8.5/10)
"Joe Mount blends Abba voices and Dexy's hooks till the Seventies bleed into the Eighties." - Rolling Stone
