Album Review: Life Is Yours by Foals

Great, Based on 3 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 90
Based on rating 9/10

After an immensely dark period, not just globally but also with Foals ' last thematic venture, the light was always sure to return and does so here with extreme potency. A disco-pop beat quickly whirrs to life and kinetic compliance is highly encouraged on lead single "Wake Me Up", slapping off any sense of the blues with rich rhythm, flourishing basslines and of course a stellar performance from Yannis Philippakis on high-reaching vocals and flittering guitars - the colourful tone manifested throughout is clear right from the start. The powerful one-two punch of "2am" and "2001" delves deep into a rose-tinted nostalgia, overwhelming suffocated regrets in an adolescent reflection which brings up many images of a naïve but endlessly enjoyable youth, most importantly the sparks of defining memories from summers past.

Oxford trio’s dance-infused seventh album takes them somewhere they've not been before Foals have become one of the UK's biggest bands over the course of their six albums to date, with their biggest asset being frontman Yannis Philippakis' dextrous guitaring skills that initially gave them the 'math-rock' tag. Following the acclaim for 2008 debut Antidotes, which undoubtedly ploughed this field, they further developed into a bigger beast with suitably meatier, anthemic ambitions, inevitably leading to a first UK number 1 album in Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost (part 2) although, despite numerous rumours over the years, they have yet to headline Glastonbury, an obvious indicator of just how big an artist has become. Seventh studio LP Life Is Yours, however, is something of an anomaly.

Opinion: Fantastic

It's safe to say that most of us have remerged from the novel and misgiving times of the pandemic as changed people, with new hobbies, ideas, and appreciation for the joys of socialising. In Foals' case, they've done exactly that, demonstrated on their gracious new record 'Life Is Yours'. Following from their critically acclaimed two-part record 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost' in 2019, Foals have remerged from the pandemic with a brand-new sound on 'Life Is Yours', a sound which can be described as a love letter written from the time of recording amid the pandemic, with best wishes to today.
