Did I just ride in a metaphorical time machine to the 80s? Because this album seriously imitates a John Hughes movie. “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It” rocks. As I began to listen to the album, I expected that a few songs might stray away from the old time feel, but I was wrong. The song “Love Me” brings you right out of the winter blues. Only a few more weeks, and you can listen to this ballad on the beach. This is The 1975’s second full-length album, and comparing it to the group’s first, it will be just as successful. I am a fan of deep and meaningful, slow lyrics, and that is exactly what you can expect. The final tracks on the album set the scene for when you just want to soak in your own sadness, because let’s be honest, we all like to do that every now and then. This album will no doubt bring in thousands of new fans and it will keep the old fans even closer. Good work, The 1975.
I LIKE IT WHEN YOU SLEEP, FOR YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL YET SO UNAWARE OF IT
