Album Review: The 1975's 'I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it'

Once you get past how long the the album title is, The 1975's I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is like a total blast from the past, well, the 80's that is.

If you haven't hear of The 1975, they are an alternative rock band formed in Manchester, England. The band is comprised of Matthew Healy, George Daniel, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald. The band began releasing a series of EP's in 2012 leading up to the self-titled album in 2013.

Since then, the band has been growing in popularity with their cross between alternative and pop music.

They even collaborated with hip-hop artist Travis Scott on a track called "Don't Play" where they reworked a verse from their track "M.O.N.E.Y." I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is full of the old school synthesizers and guitar breaks from the 1980's pop classics and somehow the band makes it work perfectly in 2016.

I Like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is a perfect continuation from their first hit album. It's primarily focused on that 1980's pop sound while mixing in some serious alternative sounds on tracks like "Please Be Naked" and "Lostmyhead." The bands lead singer Matthew Healy is extremely good at manipulating his voice to fit even the slightest of changes on the songs.

On "Loving Someone" you get the feeling that Healy is sort of rapping his lyrics rather than singing it before the chorus. The band also released three music videos for "Love Me," "UGH!" and "The Sound."

The album in it's entirety is executed well and what's even better for the listener is that it's a pretty solid offering with a total of 17 tracks, many of which exceed a 4-minute runtime. So, overall it's as if you're getting both quality and quantity. Nothing is repetitive and each track is crisp and well put together.

I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it is the perfect follow up to the 1975's debut album and you get the feeling that this band will be around for a very long time.

Unfortunately the album is not available for streaming on Spotify until March 11 so if you want to check it out you'll have to purchase it.
