Saw these guys last year. What appeared to be a very coked-out Emily Haines came out and said that their four-chord pop band was changing the music industry forever. Their set contained only one song anyone knew and the rest were from an album that wasn't even out yet. Most of the new songs they had to start over as they kept screwing them up and the bass player would stop playing in the middle every other song to tune his instrument.
I got the impression that Metric felt an audience being present was an inconvenience. The experience has not soured me on their albums but they were very disappointing live.
