There's a lot of personality in the singer's voice and it was nice to have an album like this so late in the year. The only thing is the instrumentals surrounding it seems pretty plain for the most part. Still a solid listen!

IDLES is one of those groups where they could literally write a song about tampons and toenails and I’d enjoy the hell out of it. This is easily the groups more politically fueled album they’ve dropped thus far. In a year as controversial as 2020 they really dropped an album like Run the Jewels where it just suits the times so effortlessly.

Joy as an Act of Resistance admittedly is the better album, but there’s some really fantastic tracks and memorable moments on Ultra Mono ... read more

This album is 69 songs long obviously.

Her cover of Zombie wasn't too bad either, but in my eyes that song is kind of untouchable or permanently unrivaled.

What can't you praise about this album? No Cities to Love is a fantastic reformation album if you wanna call it that. Right as Price Tag opens I'm blown away by Brownstein's unforgettable voice and thrashing guitars. I'm in love. Surface Envy comes along with that killer opening riff. DAMN! So great. No Cities to Love has that awesome chorus that just begs to be chanted and followed through on that low delivery of "it's the way that we looooooooooove". Perfection. A New Wave? Isn't ... read more
