"According to review aggregator Metacritic, the album has received a weighted score of 99 based
on four reviews, indicating "universal acclaim". Dan Stubbs of NME awarded the album five
stars out of five, likening the album to a 21st century OK Computer"

After a couple of listens this is easily their best, which isn't necessarily saying much. The
(namely "Give Yourself A Try" and "TooTimeTooTimeTooTime") are the worst songs on here.
1. Should've Dropped This By Now
2. Would You Like It If I Farted Into Your Ears?
3. The New Chainsmokers' Single
4. 22, Gazillion (Thank You, Justin, Very Cool)
5. A Dope Pop Song
6. Is Good
8. Mask Off
9. Remember Fitter, Happier?
10. The Neurosurgeon's Ballad
11. It's Not Dying (If It's With You)
12. The Bends Ballad
13. White Boi Jazz
14. Is Good? Is Good!
15. Remember Wonderwall?

I don't know that I like the fact that of all possible bands The 1975 are the last relevant rock act in 2018. But what the hell. It's the world we live in. I even kinda softened on "Give Yourself A Try" which is not good but much more bearable without the video.
Say what you will about the band or this album but they are no longer content with writing the same catchy indie-rock anthem (Girls) over and over again, which they easily could have done for the next 15 years. This LP is suprisingly diverse, ambitious (How To Draw / Petrichor) and timely and for the most part I think it works surprisingingly well. The second half of the LP is loosing me a little bit though, to many kinda sleepy ballads.
But Love It If We Made It is legit amazing.
Edit: Naaaah I take it back 2nd half is actually great. First 3 songs are kinda eeeeh, but album is pretty stellar after that.

It's Not Living is the greatest pop song of the year and I'll fight anyone who disagrees. Album is going to exceed expectations.

I've had "Love It If We Made It" stuck in my head like crazy and the other singles are all bangers. I'm late to the party but goddamn am I happy to finally get it.

The lyricism and experimentation is breathtaking and (arguably) progressive.rBut that doesn't stop stinkers Give Yourself a Try & TOOTIME from completely ruining the flow & rcohesion of the album.

Like many of you, critical acclaim told me to listen to it. Like many of you, I did listen to
it. Like many of you, I hated it.

This album tries SO HARD to be this grand, sweeping statement on modern society. And then loses the plot musically and lyrically after like track 10 or so. Love it if We Made It is catchy as all hell despite the awful lyrics, and the closing track is quite memorable too. Beyond that? This is probably the most self-important album of 2018.

leagues above their earlier work, some of the best pop songs I've ever heard are on this album, but the whole album is a little let down by some poorer tracks in the second half. cut "the man who married a robot", "mine," and "i couldn't be more in love", and you have a much stronger album that would easily be a contender for my top 10 of the decade.

This is a pretty good record. Like all 1975 stuff- it's a little too long and a little too full of itself.

"Album is going to exceed expectations."
What, the expectations set by the fucking 89 it has on Metacritic? Or how about the 5/5 the NME gave it - complete with comparisons to OK Computer? Yeah, this isn't even close to meeting those expectations
|3.0 good||ItsTheSquirrel | December 4th 18|
It?s a mix of cuality pop songs with absolute garbage. On the whole I did enjoy it
|4.0 excellent||notkanyewest | December 1st 18|
"I'm scared of dying/it's fine"rI think this record is a little more uneven than the last, but this one is getting the critical embrace because it's the "millennial classic we need for these times" or whatever. They're still the most interesting and daring act in this sphere by far, however, and when the songs hit (see: the singles, "I like America..., "I always wanna die...") they really fucking hit.
|3.5 great||iGuter | November 30th 18|
A very reflective album with a collage of concepts highly focused on the age of the Internet. "Love It We Made It" is easily one of the best songs to be released this year.

sounds like pop 2 or number 1 angel to me. congrats to matty for getting sober, though

Stuff it all, I'm actually really enjoying this. There's still the pompous attitude and bloated structure of their previous record but the cuts I genuinely like mostly outweigh the negatives here. I was expecting to loathe this but I just don't. Heck, I've even grown to like "Give Yourself a Try."
|4.5 superb||LiquidVelvet | November 28th 18|
lacking a little of the '80s sheen and post-rock vibes from their last record but almost every track aside from the man who married a robot and inside your mind is pretty much amazing
