This is a pretty good album. Iím glad to see the album tracks are leaning away from their indie rock sound, which was getting tired and predictable. I love the techno and garage influences.

This was a joy to listen to, I can see some being put off by the length - but I really enjoyed the whole thing. George did wonders on the instrumental tracks! He played some more on a livestream recently, I'd love to see a solo album of those.

My favourite album tracks are Roadkill, Tonight (I Wish I Was Your Boy) and Then Because She Goes.



This video is the start of an interesting project. "The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 15 artists responding to tracks from NOACF" - the first one here of "Tonight (I Wish I Was Your Boy" is from Most Dismal Swamp, and the explanation for their choices are in the YouTube description!

As always with The 1975 albums I find them so long it's quite difficult to get through in one listen! Really enjoying the whole variety of genres on this album, they really are a genreless band who can release anything.

My favourite new songs I think are Shiny Collarbone, The End (Music for Cars), What Should I Say and Having No Head. Definitely need to cherry-pick a few of the songs at a time. Some of the tracks that have been released as promos are sounding a lot better in the album - namely Jesus, the Birthday Party and Me and You.

Oh yeah the transition of Streaming into The Birthday Party was brilliant!

An interesting fact about Shiny Collarbone is that they tried to license a sample of Cutty Ranks for it, but Cutty decided to just rerecord it just for them!

Maybe he had nothing better to do recently? tongue.gif i've not heard the sample before - is it a famous one?

I believe it's this one:



Christopher Cross' Sailing is also sampled on 'Bagsy Not in Net' - not that I'm familiar with the original haha.

Here are my shoddily compiled ratings for the album. Gives it a score of 5.27/10, which probably doesn't do it justice. A mixed bag, but the high points are wonderful.

The actual album is amazing but ruined by all the self indulgent random interludes and instrumentals etc., - thank god for playlists so I can cut out all the junk.
