4.0 out of 5 stars A miser 12 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a miserable git when it comes to music sometimes...... However....this is a refreshing piece of musical artwork with some surprising 80's undertones that remind me of Go West, Simple Minds with a twist of grunge and nostalgic 'i'm 16 again cheese'...... Not my favorite album ever but still.......some nice melodies and a handful of tunes that you 'll want to listen to again and again. Not 1975 but more 1985......!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant stuff. 17 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit, I don't listen to much modern music at all. I'm more into obscure music from the 90s, yet, when I heard "Chocolate" it struck a chord with me, I don't know what it was about it, perhaps it was Matt's voice or the lyrics that I liked most about it. "Finally", I thought, a modern band that write their own songs and play their own instruments. It's fantastically catchy, original, passionate and fun music performed by brilliantly talented young musicians. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not (quite) a masterpiece 8 Jan 2014
By Teleman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 1975 come on like New Model Army but sound like Prefab Sprout, overlaid with Muse minus the histrionics. On paper this does not seem like a particularly edifying proposition but, confoundingly, it very much is for the simple reason that the tunes are great.

Lazy and snide comparisons with such '80s shockers as Duran, Simple Minds, Mr Mister and Cutting Crew don’t really hold up: The 1975 may be many things but AOR isn’t one of them. Equally, while generic Blue-Eyed Synth Soul is rightly deplored, there were in fact a handful of credible acts in this mode, e.g. Blue Nile, Scritti Politti and the aforementioned Prefabs. Those slightly artier leanings are, to my ears, far more discernible on this album, alongside other perfectly acceptable period influences such as Orange Juice, Talking Heads and Prince, with the latter’s groove-based method especially informing The 1975’s song writing style (you won’t find many profound chord changes on this record).

Lyrically The 1975 also set themselves slightly apart – while the indie staples of small town boredom, dissolution and yearning are all present and correct there is also a refreshing strand of young masculine gender politics, wryly conscious of the broken contract that is ‘have-it-all’ feminism. Without this final element there might be reasonable grounds for suspecting it’s all a bit too good to be true: a finely calibrated jumping-off point for the captive market of girls about to outgrow One Direction.

The 1975 is an accomplished and hugely enjoyable album containing at least six irresistibly catchy pop tunes, an eminently likeable vibe and an interesting new slant on what it means to be young and male in the second decade of the 21st century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin 24 Nov 2013

This CD album lives up to expectations. The music is as nostalgic and brusque as the name suggests, and I would recommend to any fan of Alternate or Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plays on the ears...sensual and smooth! 13 Nov 2013
By A user
Format:Audio CD
This album speaks to me, as a 19 year old, somewhat strongly. Its themes of sex, relationships, the thoughts of an individual etc, are all extremely relevant to the youth of this day. A lot of it I find somewhat hard to listen to as it evokes memories and experiences of the past - in a good way, but a lot of the songs are nostalgic in this way.

The best songs on the album for me are Chocolate, The City, Heart Out, Settle Down, M.O.N.E.Y., Girls, and Robbers. Even the shorter minute-long instrumental excerpts are relaxing and atmosphere-bursting to listen to. I'd say it stands together best as a whole album, a collective emotional experience, better than listening to individual tracks but I'm sure I'm not in the majority.

It's a great, innovative and sensual album - very strong to me. Really nicely presented too. I love the image this band have - it perfectly fits to their sound, their video for 'Girls' being completely unexpected but it's shown me a happier side to the track, which I am grateful for.

The deluxe version contains all their past EPs too, more often than not, the songs as their appear on the actual album sound different to how they originally appeared on the EPs. I'd recommend it simply as it extends the experience, with more of something that works well on the album.

The Deluxe version is a lovely product - and I bet the standard CD is too. Wish I'd bought the Vinyl!

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes a few listens, but you will eventually fall for this album
First time I gave it a listen I struggled to enjoy all but a few tracks. The 1975 were a touch too poppy for my tastes. But I kept to it, listening again and again. Read more
