Don’t be surprised if Foals’ addiction to self-sabotage results in the dubby, paranoid Various Productions remix ending up as the A-side. However, this album version remains the best thing Foals have written: soaring, sincere, emotional, boasting an actual chorus that bursts joyfully out of nowhere and all their little spidery tics and tactics employed in the process of illumination rather than obfuscation. You can smile now, Yannis.
