good review but don't really think the RIYL is accurate, but there's no other band really in the British scene doing what Foals do; before Antidotes came out, they were hyped up to be the next Radiohead, this new album furthermore cements themselves as Radiohead's predecessors.

kinda like the band in your avatar i guess, but you're right, i was just trying to find a comparison for the band's energy moreso than who "sounds" like them.

I love Foals and Spanish Sahara blew me away when I first heard it, so I'm super excited to hear this album.

This.

Overall I like Antidotes more, but this is a really great album. My favorite tracks are Spanish Sahara and This Orient.

Also, I'm glad you didn't mention Bloc Party, all my friends write off Foals as a Bloc Party knock-off, and I've been going crazy cause I thought I was the only one who didn't see the comparison.

Antidotes has not left my whatever player since 2008 when I got my hands on it. Now Total Life Forever has replaced it since last week when I snagged it. These songs are making me feel more one with the universe. That's a good sign probably.

Total Life Forever is so much better than Antidotes! There were only about four songs I really listened to consistently on Antidotes (Balloons, Red Sox Pugie, Olympic Airways, and Electric Boom). I really like the progression and build up on this album. It's real dancey IMO, and I like the technicality to it. I couldn't help but notice that the beginning of Blue Blood sounds just like Fleet Foxes, and that Spanish Sahara has a Coldplay Falsetto to it. I love it so so much.

Antidotes was my secret crush a while back, I had it on repeat for weeks. After hearing Spanish Sahara I'm definitely excited.

Whatever Foals are, and whatever they are to become, will certainly be noteworthy.
