A rollercoaster of an album, a matured Foals, Yannis' voice is sounding smoother than ever! Alot more mellow than their last album but equally as good, seems like alot more emotion went into this album and it shows...spanish sahara being the backbone of the album! Beautiful layers, couldn't recommend it enough and if you aint seen them live i suggest you do they just stepped their game up a notch!!!

 A Surprisingly Mellow Second Album.

Pros: This second album starts off awesome and carries on throughout. There is an amazingly chilled vibe to this release.
Cons: A minor difference to their original sound from the first album, but still very enjoyable.

If you are a Foals fan then this is a no brainer. If you are looking for a chilled indie sound then this is also money well spent,

A lot of bands these days release very good debut albums but then struggle to follow up with a decent second album. The Foals first album was a fresh sound and fast became one of my all time favourite albums. I hoped the second would not be a disappointment and for a change a band delivered with a decent follow up album.

It is more main stream than the first album but with singles like Spanish Sahara and This Orient, the album had a strong opening. On listening to the album a couple of times the tracks follow on one from another and none fail to impress.

If your open minded to music then I would definitely download this straight away, worth every penny.

RECOMMENED TRACKS TO DOWNLOAD - Spanish Sahara, After Glow and Miami

 Confident. Surprising. All round excellence.

If Foal's debut Antidotes could be accused of being 'emotively lacking', that claim is most irrelevant for their followup, which if anything is overflowing with the substance. It can be defined as a matured sequel if you will, but simply toning down Yannis' bark and pace alone can't be solely definitive of that term. The fact is Total Life Forever is the near perfect example of the definition of confident exploration of artisans stuck within a self-dug hole. And while most will be unable to escape from it, Foals have taken their former 'dance-floor orientated/mathematically formulated' label and torn it right off.

What their followup to Antidotes show is Foals' musicial abilities prioritising above to the usual image driven Indie tosh and confidently rise above it, and resulting in being actual credible songwriters, which they seem so desperate in proving but ultimately falling short before.

From the opening track, Foals have interwoven different surprises and turns that sound deceivingly fresh to the ear, while retaining the singalong approach that can entertain both to the inattentive dancers, and also to their avid listening fanbase. It's not the instantly impactful album that the previous title could muster, but in the long term outlook this is without argument the much superior.

Increasing frequency of playbacks of the album will reward the listener to a more satisfying experience, and it could be a deliberate, if not clever motive by Foals. They want to prove they're not a temporary fad like so many of their forgotten contemporaries already are, and by the evidence of their latest effort, by god they could have just have done it.

 Must Buy!!!
