5 Fat beasty riffs and quicksmart melodies. Slick!withydanno | 01/02/2008 | See all withydanno's reviews (124)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 100 Music Reviewer Crackingly upbeat, The Foals arrive just in time to help Battles take over the world.Refusing to ride off the back of (absurdly fun) Hummer alone, The Foals have dropped the single from this album, which I think is a brilliantly bold move. And that song is something special: usually when a song is featured on Match of The Day it is the universal signal that everyone is sick of it, but not Hummer.There's a real immediacy to this music; similar to what Bloc Party created on Silent Alarm, only The Foals carry much more weight. It's not often these days that you can hear a new band for the time and say with confidence, 'These will be a truly great band'.Actually, the way the music industry is today, you can seldom even say that a new band will even get to release a second album, let alone a good second album.If The Foals are given room to breathe and develop, they will almost certainly achieve great things. Boo yah!
