AllMusic Review by

Recorded and released in 2008, Londonymo captures Japan’s veteran synth pop trio Yellow Magic Orchestra in performance at London's Royal Festival Hall. The show, which was part of the Meltdown Festival of Music curated by Massive Attack, features a set list of primarily new material, with most selections coming from their Human Audio Sponge, or Sketch Show projects. A handful of classic YMO tracks -- including "You've Got to Help Yourself" and "Cue" -- are also performed. Ambient electronic pioneer Christian Fennesz joins the trio on guitar and electronics.
