American Football (LP2)

William rated this


Generally nice, but a bit too emo for me.

I'm a big fan of their first album, which is part of the reason why it took me so long to give this a listen as I wasn't expecting much. It felt far more like an Owen record than an American Football one which is fine, but it's part of the reason why it didn't live up to expectations of their debut album. There was nothing I disliked about this album and it was pleasant listening, it just didn't do much for me. I found it fairly boring and it lacked the youthfulness of the first album. It was always going to be compared to the first album which is understandable. I feel like I would've enjoyed it more if I hadn't heard their first album so many times. It's fine as background music, but I can't see myself revisiting much. It was Never Meant.
