While the majority of their contemporaries have fallen by the wayside, Foals continue to hit new peaks. After more than a decade in the game, the band again embrace that love for the unconventional with the bravest and most ambitious project of their career: not one, but two astonishing albums: 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost'. A pair of releases, separate but related, they share a title, themes and artwork. Part 2 is released later in 2019. 'They're two halves of the same locket', frontman Yannis Philippakis explains. 'They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces'.

Nuttigste klantenrecensies op Amazon.com
The four strong tracks that make it worth hearing are: 1) Exits -- with a theme of catastrophic climate change, though lyrics are not the band's strong suit, 2) White Onions -- a very funky up-tempo number, 3) Syrups -- featuring a slow, ominous rhythm, and 4) Cafe D'Athens -- very propulsive, with a fast, tricky rhythm.
"In Degrees" and "On the Luna" are both fine but generic up-tempo dance numbers. The intro (Moonlight) and the outro (I'm Done With the World...) are both insubstantial, as is the brief "Surf, Pt. 1."
That leaves the track to skip -- "Sunday." This is Foals in their Coldplay style -- anodyne and so inoffensive as to be offensive. To add insult to injury, the lyric is nihilistic: "Through the flames & through the fire, Cities burn but we don't give a damn, Cause we got all our friends right here, we got youth to spend."
Now I wouldn't want to listen to this insipid song even if it had great lyrics, but seriously? Is it supposed to be cool to say "we don't give a damn" in the face of climate catastrophe?
I had hoped for better -- perhaps Part 2 will be more consistently strong.
