Foals’ new album, ‘Holy Fire,’ is refreshing from the start

George Treviranus, Editor

It starts at a moderate pace with the “Prelude,” gets calm for “Inhaler,” and then darts up to catchy and addicting with “My Number.” The latter is easily the album’s best track.

One thing to keep in mind is that this album is more of a chill-out, get-relaxed album. None of the tracks are too over the top, and even the more active songs such as “Out of the Woods” will leave you feeling calm. This isn’t a bad thing. In fact it is something you might appreciate by the end of your play-through.

The English rock band doesn’t disappoint with their new album, but it may not be for everyone. It can get monotonous quickly if you’re not in the mood for repetitive song styles over and over again. Their third album is a modest step up from “Antidotes” and “Total Life Forever” with a more refined sound that’s sure to please fans, as well.
