"GIVE ME A BREAK"
Daaaamn. I come here all pumped up right after watching the music video, I love it. I love how confident they are at everything they do, in this case a mix of electronic and metal that I am pretty sure would appease any Linkin Park fan. There's also a touch of Health influence. I don't understand how have they have not become a lot more famous with Amo, but maybe Ludens will get them closer to different audiences.

A really good album of metal, for some reason I tend to listen to it in Autumn. The vocalist mixes a harsh style with a melodic one that reminds me of Depeche mode (Worth Fighting For), which combined with the games between the two guitars are what make it such a nice album, kind of accesible even for people who don't listen to many metal bands.
Faves: Crucify, Worth Fighting For, Theories From Another World (amazing guitar work)

A nice pop-rock album with cool production. I liked the keyboard sounds and guitars, the songs are mostly very straightforward except for some welcome exceptions (Sunday). Being a Part 1 of two albums, I can excuse the rather bland ending if said Part 2 deserves it (coming this October)
This is the first Foals album I ever listen to in its entirety, so I don't know how it fits in their discography, but it won't be the last.
Favourites: Moonlight, White Onions, the Radioheadesque Cafe D'Athens, ... read more

Beautiful and melancholic, a perfect album to welcome the autumn. I feel like the last songs in the album will grow on me after a few listens, so I look forward to the rainy days to have this as a soundtrack.

I don't understand the tracklist order at all, or why would he include Sunflower, a song that I loved in freaking December but that is so overplayed by now I can't feel a thing when it sounds. The whole thing feels pretty uninspired and drags it's catchy moments down. (Wow, Goodbyes, Hollywood is Bleeding)
