Fantastic indie rock with a hard, angry edge to it. Really energetic, really powerful. Great release.

Can't believe I only just discovered this. One of the angriest, untamed, witty, and surprisingly positive albums released in a long time.

I think I'm just missing what everyone else likes about this. But I love the energy and feel of the record. The songwriting isn't totally there for me, but it's also hardly the worst record of 2018.

This is a beast of an album out of the UK. Can't believe I'm just now discovering it. Glad to see it rising on these charts. GREAT lyrics, socially conscious and with purpose.

Incredible first half, but falls flat on the second half, still, some amazing songs.

An unabashed punk masterpiece from Britain's best contemporary band - the performances, the wild-eyed seriousness of that mission statement, and some of the most fiercely inclusive music I've ever heard. This is the fire and fury 2018 needs, and Idles are just getting better and better. This snowflake's an avalanche.

From Altsoul 10/21/2018 21:26
It's so rewarding to find a punk masterpiece like this in 2018. IDLES is keeping punk rock alive and kicking. Furthermore, it was time for some band to take the lead of new generations of people capable to kill previous idols who are a step behind of causes such as feminism, LGBT struggle, immigration and so on.
IDLES are merging these voices with an outstanding powerful sound creating the new anthems we were asking for. The celebration of immigration in "Danny Nedelko" and the scream against patriarchy in "Samaritans" are the peak moments of the record.
Album of the year so far, and it's seems unlikely to be other way.

This is what 2018 was missing, a punk rock album that makes you feel angry and happy at the same time, that asks for unity and rebellion while it makes you feel like dancing and getting into a fight, all at the same time

From DeusExMackia 09/24/2018 21:01
The most essential record in years. A catalogue of insanely catchy socio-political anthems that tap right into the heart of the struggles and problems modern Britain faces in the most happy-angry way possible.

The impact this album is going to have cannot be predicted, but I do have these thoughts so far: Never Fight A Man With A Perm is killer beyond all comprehension; Danny Nedelko is a fantastic middle finger to the right wing press's narrative of the last decade; Samaritans speaks to me and to men in general in a way that music has never done before, making you want to sing-a-long and cry all at the same time; Great finally delivers the Brexit punk anthem we've been after for ages.

Even then, there's so much to unpick here. Every song has as much depth as the last one, every lyric feels like it deserves a whole essay just to explain its significance.

The music too. Man. I don't even know where to start. Idles have taken there big ol' grungy hardcore post-punk medley sound and fleshed it out into something that nods to all of its influences yet feels highly appropriate and effective, and more than anything else, rocks like no god damn tomorrow.

Packs the energy to make you want to jump around the room and smash up your kitchen. Smacks you right in the feels with the intensity of its lyrics. Reassures that it knows just what you're going through and what you've been through, and finally offers you an answer. This is the record we've all been waiting for in Britain. An optimistic, angry mantra to unite around - and dance around to as well.

Idles pulled it out the bag and smacked it right out of the park. Best record of 2018? Oh hell, I most certainly think so.
