The 1975

I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it lp

the Manchester group’s second album was a fascinating reflection of their frontman Matt Healy’s outsized, often contrarian, personality: egomaniacal but introverted, populist but unapologetically pretentious, insecure but hungry for attention. “The world needs this album,” Healy told NME, and the world’s response to it – topping the charts on both sides of the Atlantic – proved him right.

My view: It's a cool mix of flaming lips, sigur ros, rhcp, prince and air supply.
