𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 | The Manchester quartet has been quite busy in the last years. This Notes on a Conditional Form should have arrived mere months after 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. Maybe it was the necessity to keep going or to evolve or to have something to say but Matty Healy and Co are the most versatile pop-rock band in the world, jumping from musical styles like no other without missing a beat. Well, maybe in some weird chaotic way that can be felt in this latest album. It’s part pop, rock, lo-fi garage dance, dancehall, symphony peace. It’s all over the place without a structure. In some ways, it can be a reflection of our days. The album has some great songs, others not so great and the lyrics vary from corny to the extreme narrative complexion. I’m still just enjoying the album, without trying to decipher everything in it. I guess that’s one way to go by.
