Editorial Reviews

Detroit. Willesden. Olympos, on the Greek island of Karpathos. "The inside of our skulls. " These are the places that make up Holy Fire, Foals third album, their most direct and fully realized album yet. Foals have stepped up from, as Yannis puts it, "songs for indie clubs" to something much, much bigger. Their third album might not sound like Depeche Mode or Nine Inch Nails, but it has much of the same ambitious spirit and grandiose aesthetic that led to those groups touching the lives of millions. This is the sound of Foals arriving.

It was around the 5th time I listened to it all the way through, that I began to realize how brilliant this album is.
Scott Lyman
Sounds pretty good right now, should be interesting to see if this holds up over time.

It is third album in for Oxford band Foals and the bid for major league status begins here with an album which according to the band "kills their inner Woody Allen" (whatever that means!). "Holy Fire" is clearly aimed at smoothing the more spiky edges of the band and is easily their most coherent and cohesive album to date. With top producers Flood & Moulder at the helm the weight of their previous experience is brought to bear and the influence detectives will detect snatches of their work with Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails, and The Killers. Their presence has undoubtedly hardened the bands sound, made it bigger and pushed it into a place which takes the Foals vehicle screaming away from the label marked "indie". As a result some may find "Holy Fire" a bit too much like standard rock while others may hark back with fondness to the indie danceability of "Antidotes". Others may alternatively heave a quiet sigh of relief and point out that for every excellent song on previous albums there were also infuriating examples of the "far too clever for their own good" syndrome.

Perhaps the most clear example of the "new" Foals is the single "My Number". This is pure and simple cystral clear brilliant pop music which you can dance to and which could top the charts across Europe with sustained airplay. It is a belter and will entrall festival goers splattered in Glastonbury mud. The same also applies to "Inhaler; this is a twisted bible black nasty funk song the sort that the great American band "Living Colour" used to roll out on production lines, come to think of it there is also a faint nod to Peter Gabriel's 'Sledgehammer".

Foals, hailing from Oxford, England, rose to prominence pretty much out of nowhere with their excellent 2008 debut album "Antitodes". Their second album, 2010's "Total Life Forever", was not nearly as good (the dreaded sophomore slump). Now comes the band's highly anticipated third album.

"Holy Fire" (11 tracks; 50 min.) starts off very strongly with several can't miss, lights-out tracks. There is the 4 min. instrumental opener, simply called "Prelude" but it doesn't feel like a prelude at all, as it immediately throws you seemingly deep into the album. It is followed by "Inhaler" (1st UK single), in which the band's arena-sized ambitions are clear as the song just sounds massive. That in turn is followed by "My Number" (2nd UK single), which is my favorite track on this album and has what I would call the 'classic' Foals sounds, reminiscent of "Antidotes". "My Number" is where Talking Heads-meets-Cut Copy, just outstanding. These first three tracks alone are worth buying the album for. But there is a lot more of course. With "Bad Habbits", the high energy continues, even if not as urgently as before. Things slow down considerably on the last song of Side A, "Late Night", the Foals equivalent of a ballad. Side B of this album rekindles the fire from the very beginning of the album, with "Out of the Woods", another highlight of the album, which is then followed by the high-charging "Milk and Black Spiders" and "Providence".

In all, this is quite the album! It's hard to find any gaping holes in it, and this is one of the best album of this young 2013 for me, and sure to end up on my "best of" albums of the year list at the end of 2013.

With the Foals you can count on getting a masterfully mixed, engaging, transcendental album dripping with musicality. They have proven this with their third release, which builds upon their first two albums "Antidotes" and "Total Life Forever." If you're into the Foals sound, then "Holy Fire" will be your king for the next good while...or maybe forever.

I've always been hit and miss on the "indie" thing. It seems to be a genre characterized with compressed and reverby vocals, synths that emanate, and everything from total experimental music to very beat driven guitar laden rock and roll. In the Foals case at their very best they are one of the most rhythmic and driving, and bring back what I love about 80's music the most. It's like I'm listening to what I wish Men at Work or The Cure was.

The Foals first couple albums were great, there's a few gems on them that will always be on my playlist like "Big Big Love" and "Spanish Sahara," which is so layered and just an incredible song. "Holy Fire" brings everything they've been doing well, and adds a little more funk, spice and Yannis' singing is the best I've heard. It's like they took everything that worked in their style and emphasized it. This is truly an incredible album and one that you won't regret purchasing...ofcourse unless you're not into this type of music...which would make it weird that you're reading this sentence right now.

After listening through the album one thing that is very noticeable is the use of syncopated guitar, drum, synth sections. The Foals have really tightened this aspect of their music, and it gives the songs a cohesion and musicality that just isn't present in most music today.
