WOW

For a full 42 minutes, I was rocking the fuck out! This is literal punk perfection and Im holding my ground on that statement.

This could very well end up being my AOTY for 2018!

Idles are a band that know what they want to do musically, and have a fucking blast doing so! The chemistry of the bandmates bleeds out through the music.

P.s. As much as it pains me to say this, this album was better than Parquet Courts' Wide Awake

That's saying a lot bc wide awake was amazing.

I wouldn't compare Wide Awake! and Joy As An Act Of Resistance. Both are politically charged albums, but stylistically I think they're on opposite spectrums of punk music

@wacochran I wasnt reakly suggesting the two were stylistically similar, merely that I thought Wide Awake was gonna end up being my favorite album this year.
