While ‘Part 1’ explored Foals’ new-wave tendencies, Part 2’ is more brutal and visceral. It’s noisier and gnarlier. Foals ended the last album with ‘Sunday’, telling us that “time has come and time is done” as “cities burn, and we’ve got youth to spend”. ‘Part 2’ opener ‘Red Desert’ brushes away the ash with an instrumental not dissimilar to the retro-futuristic Moog-work on Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange soundtrack, before the riffs kick in on ‘The Runner’ and we’re ready to rumble. For the sequel, it seems the band have found the resolve to charge through the embers of their imagined apocalypse, as frontman Yannis Philippakis promises: “While the years they come and go, I won’t let myself get slow.”
‘Part 2’ is also a thoroughbred belter of a record and utterly complete album in its own right. Add it all up and the ‘Everything Not Lost’ era is testament to all that Foals are capable of – in sound, in scope and in greatness.
