raise your hand if you forgot about this release ✋
4mo
the NME blurb is honestly the best way i would describe as to enjoy the album...i don't get the hate around it.
6mo
I can't stand NME how do you have THAT MANY perfectly scored albums 7 months into the year and one them is this
7mo
The most hated band on aoty?
7mo
That NME abstract is one of the worst things I've ever read
7mo
Yellow vinyl is extremely clean sounding but surprisingly quiet! Strange pressing.
7mo
"This is too trendy to be a white album" was a great point by Fantano.
7mo
That was an easy score
7mo
This one was easy for baldman
7mo
I actually agree
7mo
What a mess
7mo
UNNECESSARY hate on shiny collarbone but alright
7mo
yall wouldnt get it anyway.
7mo
let's agree that we'll come back here in a summary of the best albums of the year and this album will be on the lists of those who rated this album poorly
7mo
This is The 1975's Making A Door Less Open, which is CSHR's Weezer Red Album
7mo
first parts kid a
Nothing revealed = Kanye
Rest is Jonas Brothers
7mo
can't wait for the day when matt healy realizes a 10 track album is fine
7mo
oh boi, Fantano will destroy it
7mo
honestly surprised people are even enjoying it this much but good for you if you do
7mo
Nice try..
7mo
69
7mo
haven't even heard this and I already know this shit gonna be b l o a t e d
7mo
ARTV gave this 1.5/5 Wow
7mo
Let’s just hope RTJ4 is not as polarizing as this album.
7mo
This album is my plans at december 2019
The Independent is 2020
7mo
Pitchfork respect!
7mo
sadly, this was kinda expectable by knowing the amount of songs this album has :/
7mo
Oh god
7mo
69 69 69
7mo
I couldn’t be more excited for this. These are the kind of reviews I want for a 1975 album. ABIIOR was them caring TOO much. Fuck the critics! :)
7mo
I’m scared.
7mo
this album is a mess.
7mo
i'm dreading this
7mo
Tommorow pitchfork rate this album +8.5 goodnight
7mo
I think people gonna hate this album too much and after 2 years everyone calling it overhated or underappreciated.
7mo
Oohhh nvm
7mo
How are they listening to it?
7mo
Damn... the singles really be the best songs off the album
7mo
The Independent, The Line of Best Fit and Paste... are you ok?
8mo
these reviews have got me both gutted and excited at the same time, gonna be an interesting listen

80 mins definately seems lengthy, i wonder why they decided to go with it and not drop a couple tracks?
8mo
Vinyl shipped ❤️
8mo
so it's actually coming out on friday huh
8mo
This is is gonna be an interesting record to listen
8mo
As much as NME can't be trusted on matters The 1975, we also shouldn't listen to Roisin O'Connor of The fucking Independent. A terrible journalist.
8mo
*sees 67 score

The 1975, in: "Back to normal"
8mo
oh boy this is only the beggining, I want to see this after 25 reviews...
8mo
what the fuck are these scores
8mo
The Independent & The Line of Best Fit going off lol
8mo
HOLY SHIT WHAT HAPPENED HERE
8mo
the critics scores...is....wtf
8mo
Fucking hell, I've never seen critics so divided. Predictions for me are that the Telegraph are going to give this 5/5, Observer will give 3/5, Pitchfork a 7.1/10
8mo
The length is probably a big factor here, you either enjoy the album and love how much you're getting, or don't like the album and hate how much of a slog 80 minutes can be
8mo
The most divisive album of all time?
8mo
WTF these critic reviews are awful
Why they are getting paid for that?
8mo
Oh boy the new reviews are either very bad or a 100, first I thought this would land at 79/80 but now I think it won't even get that high!
8mo
Fantano will give this album a strong 5. Remember my words
8mo
The only problem with this record in obvious. I've listened to it and it's too damn long. And it suffers for that. A LOT. But if it was just long and all the tracks amazing... ok. But in the last half there are 3 tracks that are flat, pointless, andannoying. I don't see the appeal on them: Shiny Collarbone, What Should I Say, Having no Head. Without those tracks the album would be long, okay. But at least would be near perfect cause the rest is AMAZING, great flow (I didn't spect) great production, songwitting, lyrics, performances... And there are some tracks that have some elements that I don't like like some vocals, or something that don't appeal to me. Tracks like Don?t Worry and Bagsy not in net. Good album that could have been better
8mo
I truly love the 1975 but even I will admit they've never made a consistently good album, so the gargantuan length of this one has me worried a lot.
8mo
Loving the scores being everywhere!
8mo
there is currently a leaked album out, but I'll just wait to review it on Friday, as a long time fan, time to see if it lives up to the hype.
8mo
What's more annoying? People who hate on these band no matter what or people who praise them no matter what? Pick your fighter!
8mo
pseuds really love telling everyone how much they don't like this band or it's singer don't they?
at every opportunity
it must be exhausting for those who like this band and just enjoy things for what they are
kind of sad
8mo
if this gets delayed again i'm gonna shit my britches
8mo
Everybody hate The 1975 until Fantano give this an eight.
8mo
Surprising how LOBF, longtime supporters of the band, have really turned on them with this one.
8mo
i really don't get the hype, the singles sucked, matty's an idiot, and in the end this band will continue to churn out dull and meaningless pap into oblivion
8mo
I can't believe gigwise just called The 1975 "the UKs best band"
8mo
I just read the The Line of Best Fit's review and it doesn´t make any sense, I mean all the singles until now were good, maybe other parts of album won't be as good but a 3? I think that even Fantano won't give this a 3 but we' ll see.
8mo
The Line of Best Fit I hate you like I hate Hitler
8mo
The Line of Best Fit give a a 3/10, it is strange cause they always give good reviews for The 1975.
Now the sities that gave bad reviews will give good reviews and the sites that gave good reviews, will give bad reviews ?
8mo
This album will start with 89 or something from critics and then after 20 and something reviews will drop to 79/80, mark my words.
8mo
Imagine giving 100s to something you haven't heard
8mo
Did this leak or are we already being dumbasses?
8mo
not hate on them and actually give them valid reviews?????
8mo
What is happening?
8mo
Are people use hating or is there a leak?
8mo
Dafuq people rating this already? Is there a leak I don't know about, or are folks being doofuses?
8mo
202/3 = 51? Lol
8mo
Can we just leave this in peace with 100 score?
8mo
If you're going to release an album, release an album. Not 8 singles and then the rest
22 songs is too long. That won't ever change in my mind
8mo
it gets delayed again and they release the entire album thru singles
8mo
Preordered vinyl in January, could ya fuckin ship it already!?
8mo
This rollout actually pisses me off
8mo
I dont want to like this album but I will probably like this album.

And no that does mean I will like their other albums...they're still shit.
8mo
Huge fan of The 1975 here, but I HATE the massive number of singles being released for this thing. Even if there are no interludes (which I doubt), there will be 8 songs out when "Guys" gets released within a day. That's just a monumental amount of music released as singles, regardless if there are 22 songs on the entire thing.
8mo
look, either you take 4 minutes to prepare popcorn and watch a nightmare before christmas, or you take that exact amount of time to listen to this album. im doing the 1st one.
8mo
Why am I hyped for this. I don’t even like them that much
8mo
Any one else listen to the interviews Matty is doing with Brian Eno, Stevie Nicks, Conor Oberst, etc.? Worth checking out.
8mo
I need it
8mo
"the album has a style similar to English alternative hip hop music group the Streets and British electronic musician Burial. In a separate interview, he added that the record has "one of my best lyrics ever."". I think it sounds a bit pretensious but I'm interested to hear this album.
8mo
Bet this will start with some rave reviews and then will drop to 80 or 79 do to being too long and inconsistent album
8mo
3 weeks til the release and NME is already dropping their review... There are stans with more sense
8mo
NME here making this genuinely good band look awful, as only they can.
8mo
wtf, 22 songs?
8mo
Of course NME thinks they're deep lol

The 1975 has lyrics that would make an edgy 13 year old cringe
8mo
NME PLEASE JUST FUCKING STOP OH MY GOD
8mo
Dont fail me nme
8mo
nme really trying to make them sound like they are Radiohead or some shit lmao
8mo
ok nme
8mo
snoozer
8mo
Give me this album
8mo
supposed to make a spring mix for my friends but i need "too shy" to drop first
9mo
Are there any sings of how long this album gonna be?
I hope that there will be a healthy amount of skits and this record doesn't end up being 2 fucking hours looooong.
9mo
I wonder if there will be a second 10/10 this year?
9mo
22 tracks? There's no way this album isn't going to be too long.
9mo
Despite the interesting choice of album cover, this is my most anticipated release of 2020. All five (so far) singles have been excellent and the band's best music yet in my opinion.
9mo
mas aoty 2021 se n for adiado pra 2025
9mo
a capa podre
9mo
What a boring album cover.
9mo
yay, another radiohead rip off
9mo
at least they got rid of that awful lime green stripe from the cover
9mo
this album rollout is very strange
9mo
the 1975 do not have any good covers... wow
9mo
Goddammit
9mo
They just want to stay on Highly Anticipated forever.
9mo
Better cover at least.
9mo
WHY
THE FUCK
WAS IT DELAYED
A G A I N
9mo
I like the new cover a lot more to be honest! Fits better with A Brief Inquiry's cover being similarly empty. Looks better though, ABIIOR's cover was pretty bad. At least this one doesn't have the stupid dots everywhere making it look cluttered
9mo
new cover lowkey sucks tbh
9mo
new cover updated needed
9mo
1h20min lmao
9mo
I bet 2 packs of beer that this album will get delayed because of covid-19
10mo
I just feel like their overall theme on an album is quite messy. I understand they want to show all of the influences they have but maybe stick to one kind of style and make it your own? The fact that People and birthday song can exist in the same album is baffling tbh.
10mo
MAYBE I WOULD LIKE YOU BETTER IF YOU TOOK OFF YOUR CLOTHES
10mo
i was hyped until i saw there are 22 tracks
10mo
A definite 90s/00s revival vibe to this one. People= post-hardcore, Frail State of Mind with its dubstep sound, You and Me Together Song with a kinda pop-punk/alternative feel and The Birthday Party radiates Brit-pop
11mo
hope they get experimental on this. switch things up a bit.
11mo
Biggest hype of the year, all of the singles (and all the other songs that are floating around) have been FANTASTIC! I am beyond excited
11mo
My body and soul are ready
11mo
Listened to the two as-yet unreleased songs they played on tour today. One was like Tears For Fears with saxophone in it and the other made me cry. Gonna be a strong album.
11mo
Blimey, 22 tracks?!!!!
11mo
Every song they've released from this album sound completely different from each other. Anyone else worried it's gonna be a mess?
11mo
happy birthday to me?
11mo
Album is an hour and 20 minutes... hope it doesn't feel bloated because this is shaping up to be their best album.
11mo
lmao delayed again huh
12mo
disappointed with third album hope its a different story with this one
12mo
please don't suck please don't suck please don't suck please don't suck please don't suck
12mo
Really excited for this one
1y
False alarm, the old cover’s back
1y
Idk the cover probably has its D E E P meaning, I liked the old one but hey let's see what happens
1y
i think i like the cover ? i know it’s emojis but
1y
let's pray that emoji cover isn't the final one
1y
really hope they dont change the album cover to those emoji's
1y
🥾 🌍
1y
drops april 24th
1y
EU Tour deleyed until October since they need more time to record the album, so it will probably not come anytime soon
1y
Boy, people really hate The 1975, huh? They're so much goddamn fun!
1y
Seeing "post-hardcore" underneath the list of genres for 1975 makes me crease. Cmon man
1y
No matter how good this album will be and no matter how good the critic reviews will be, people will still hate on this and it won´t have more than 70 as user rating. People will also say that they are doing a ripoff of OK Computer but in 2020.
I mean, I never liked them and always considered them as this teenage boy band and then I listened to A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships and it was a big surprise, and from the singles of their next album, it looks promising.
1y
expecting people to be easily the best track on the album
1y
i think y’all forgot they released the first track (the 1975) before “people” even
1y
high expectations
1y
i thought this was supposed to come out this year
1y
With the release of first single "People," I can say I am fully expecting this album to be another post-modern classic of eclecticism and wit. Their first album was alright, but my god have they been on a roll ever since that. I really do think they are rising to David Bowie levels of mastery and fun, even if they can never and will never affect the greater culture the way he did. The same spirit of theatrics and utter musical delight as I hear in Bowie's records has come through on both "I Like it When You Sleep" and "A Brief Inquiry," and I can't flipping wait for "Notes." Here's hoping they don't massively drop the ball.
1y
one to watch
1y
fuck i'm SO EXCITED
1y
Wait... why are there bots here this early?
1y
omg why didnt they make the release date 20/02 2020
1y
So this really gunna hang around the most anticipated section for a whole ass year huh
1y
see you next year lads
1y
Wow that is a lot of tracks
1y
yall so apparently new the 1975 stuff is coming in august lmao
1y
That moment when you can’t release an album on time...
1y
for real?
1y
Wher is she?
1y
drinking hennessy at 13:82 AM n my tits reek from it
1y
I'm about 20 hours into the album. I guess it's alright.
1y
What a shit album. The music doesn't even play
1y
i'm not prepared yet
1y
any minute now
1y
WE HAVE ALBUM ART FOLKS
1y
Oh poop here we go?
1y
They said that this album is influenced by Burial and the garage scene, wow hope it´s good
1y
this is gonna be wack af
2y
wait, is this for real?
2y
Releasing two albums 6 months between each other is wack af... Unless you're brockhampton.
2y
MATTY HEALY DO YOU KNOW WHAT A REST IS
