Metric are back again but this time the tone seems a little darker than usual. This is a band that has managed to stay recognizable while releasing records that sound remarkably different.
“Pagans In Vegas” shows the band using more synthesizers and snares.
To me, this is probably the most impressive album that the band has released since “Old World, Underground…”. The way they changed up their sound this time around really fits Emily Haines’ voice in a way that I’m glad they finally discovered. The project as a whole just fits together much better than “Synthetica” and I’m happy to see this evolution in the band’s feel and sound.
There’s equal parts songs to get lost in and to dance to on Metric’s most recent effort.
