    Foals’ problem is that they have the same ambitions as just about every other large-font rock band these days and thus the same pitfalls. Making apolitical art feels borderline negligent, and yet it’s easier than ever to feel desensitized to the doomsaying when everything just seems to get incrementally worse.

    A collection of leaden dance-rock, ponderous show-boating, and thankfully, brief flashes of inventiveness. ... This record's promise is blunted by its workmanlike enthusiasm. [Feb-Apr 2019, p.108]

    Bless ‘em for their ambition, and too bad it didn’t yield more than this muddled set.

    The only "bad" thing in this record is that it ends. Absolutely addicting, well produced and totally worth all the wait for a Foals new album.The only "bad" thing in this record is that it ends. Absolutely addicting, well produced and totally worth all the wait for a Foals new album.
