A effective album that isworthyof to be on the lips of others for lotsof years to come.
Their veryfirst release as a trio, Foals‘ brand-new album Life Is Yours takes you on an electro journey through the ups and downs that life makesup, with an boosting energy that leaves the listener sensation a blissful sense of glee within.
The album breathes a brand-new lease of life into the rock category, encompassing a sense of 80s electro. This produces an paradoxically contemporary take, while other tracks on the album – such as The Sound and Wake Me Up – are reminiscent of a more earthy sense of Indie, as pictured in Night Visions by Imagine Dragons – an album that I feel hasactually been incomparable on the Indie scene for the finest part of a years consideringthat its release.
Seamlessly encompassing 2 cutsinhalf, the album consistsof the transitioning piece Summer Sky to different and contrast the ebulliently easy-going belief incorporated in the veryfirst half, with the more reflective and cinematic design of musicality in the following tracks. While the veryfirst half leads you to feel favorably upbeat about life, the 2nd commands a inebriated sense of reflection, simulating a trance-like feeling that allows you to takealookat yourself from the outside looking in – an genuine sense of living. This is strengthened by closing track Wild Green, which imitates a foggy haze with the power to transportation you back to the beginning beliefs of the album.
For this factor, picking to listen to tunes separately would do the album an oppression – whether this is an benefit or downside, nevertheless, depends completely on your listening design.
My 3 individual favourites on the album are 2001, Looking High and The Sound:
The veryfirst of the trio provides a special support track, filled – alongwith traditional components of Indie and Electro – with a myriad of noise bites such as leaking water, which allows you to feel that you are in the middle of the dream world of an 80s garden celebration, filled with sunlight and drunken happiness. Looking High oppositely takes you on an remarkable multi-layered journey, requiring you to show on the mayhem of your own life, while The Sound when more provides a total shift in belief, with a quicker noise and dancey sense of panic that develops into a perfectly memorable crescendo of noise.
I was left with a odd sense of elation and satisfaction upon conclusion of Life Is Yours, making me desire to takein its contents all over onceagain. The album is definitely a noteworthy piece of art, and will be one that stays in my mind for a rather long time – an excellent release from Foals, that makes me thrilled to see what they will go on to produce in the years to come.
