Album Of The Month: The 1975 // I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It

19.4.16


-- You should be loving someone... --

It feels like ages ago that I actually bought this album, and truth be told, I've listened to it every day since. I've actually put the review off for so long because I can't find the words to describe this album - and I haven't felt like this since I bought the latest 30 Seconds To Mars album back in 2013. The 1975 come back with a bang with their second album. (I'm not even going to bother typing the title, it's too long ok? Thanks for making our life hard Matty...)

"You used to have a face straight out of a magazine / Now you just look like anyone" Matty wallows in A Change of Heart. In this huge contrast of a record to their debut, we see some questions answered and this shows predominantly in A Change of Heart with twisted lyrics echoing on from the first record. It's really colourful with what feels like an added sprinkling of gospel in songs like If I Believe. There's some nice slow ballads with The Ballad Of Me and My Brain - which is one of my favourites - and Nana. While there's also a mix of the upbeat with the popular fame culture centered Love Me and my personal favourite at the moment Somebody Else.

You will find yourself singing along to every song and fall in love with the whole aesthetic of the second era. While their first album was addictive, this one is like a full blown life obsession and if you didn't think that the band had a chance at world domination. Well, think again. The only thing I'm sad about is that I probably won't have the chance to see them in concert...

  4. I absolutely love The 1975, I pre-ordered this album because I couldn't wait. I saw them tour their other album sooo many times and when I saw them tour this one they were just as amazing! such a great band...although their sound has changed a little for album 2 it still sounds like the 1975 which I love :)
