Get ready for "the millennial answer to OK Computer," guys!

I expected to dislike this when it was first announced. I guess that just goes to show that no matter who the band is, you shouldn't count an album out before you hear it. There are a lot of problems with A "Brief" Inquiry Into Online Relationships, but overall, I really do think this is a giant step up from The 1975's previous two records, which I didn't hate, but found to be incredibly tedious. There are some wack moments, but there are also plenty where I did finally see the fuss around Matty Healy's songwriting. Hell, if every song were as sharp as Love It If We Made It, this might actually be the masterpiece many critics are hailing it as. The 1975 have always been aiming for greatness, and on here, despite loads of pretension and a miss or two in the tracklist, they very nearly hit the mark. I'm now in a position where I look forward to what they do next. Don't make me regret this, Healy...

Favorite Tracks: Love It If We Made It, I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes), How To Draw / Petrichor, The Man Who Married A Robot / Love Theme, Be My Mistake, Surrounded By Heads and Bodies, It's Not Living (If It's Not With You), Give Yourself A Try

Least Favorite Tracks: I Like America & America Likes Me, TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME
