Favorite tracks: The City, M.O.N.E.Y., Chocolate, Sex, Girls, She Way Out
A bit messy, but The 1975 succeeds in combining the heartbreaking lyrics with a very poppy sound. It's catchy, fun, and worth a listen.
I adore this album. The music itself isn't necessarily varied, but it is raw, cinematic, and intense. While other albums may match that description, there is also a certain depth to their lyrics, ethos, and the members of the band (Matty, Ross, Adam, and George).

The 1975 is strongest lyrically when they have a specific scene or plot in mind (my absolute favorite is Menswear).
