“A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships” by The 1975

Album Title: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Year of Release: 2018

Performed by: The 1975

Running Time: 58 minutes 26 seconds

The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:

Rather than listen to bean counters and put out a sequel to their 80s-tastic second album, the Mancunian lads instead took several left turns and came up with their own “OK Computer.” A lovely record. Grandiose and humbling. Intimate and imposing. Engaging and reclusive. Mostly introspective. A little torchy too. The boys show so many layers here. Quite possibly 2018’s best album.

Best Tracks: “How To Draw / Petrichor,” “Love It If We Made It,” “Be My Mistake,” “Inside Your Mind,” “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)”
