or maybe I’m just pretentious.

Well, it’s a fun film, and they’re fun punks; there’s a notable dissonance between Idles’ music and collective persona. And yet Idles are a colourful bunch whose debut, 2016’s ‘Brutalism’, peppered their righteous punk with bizarre jokes ( Mary Berry loves reggae, So why don’t you love reggae? )

When Bristol post-punks IDLES released their debut album Brutalism in March 2017, the band quickly realised their luck might be on the turn. After five years of toil in the nation's pubs and dive bars, the album was picked up by new music champion Steve Lamacq, and as a result, catapulted into the public domain. The album, a viscerally honest takedown of the pressures of modern life, resonated with audiences in a way few new bands manage. Then we just fucked it off – we scrapped loads of songs and went back to the drawing board and Joy As An Act Of Resistance happened very quickly as a resistance to the pressures. As a form of resistance, we just decided to not care about it anymore.

IDLES’ new album concerns the tragedies of illness and loss, the addict’s vacillation between sobriety and vice, and the discomfort of rational people at the current state of the world. Joe Talbot, the band’s sardonic, growling singer, lost his disabled mother, cleaned up his substance abuse, and watched the xenophobic Brexit go down-all while his Bristol-based post-punk quintet blew up in his home country. While they mined grief and addiction on their heralded 2017 debut, Brutalism, its follow-up seeks to further focus their notorious, explosive, tongue-in-cheek energy  . While IDLES don’t sound dishonest on Joy as an Act of Resistance, both the urgency and the vagueness of this record create the impression that a declaration of joy might be a little premature.

Addressing politics in pop is supposed to be a tricky balancing act, yet Idles frontman Joe Talbot charges across the tightrope in heavy boots, screaming in the face of the farce unfolding around him. There is untrammelled aggression in his voice, a directness that leaves spittle on your cheeks, but it is humour, not anger, that he uses as his most devastating weapon. On Never Fight a Man With a Perm, he mocks a coked-up, white-shirted Neanderthal: You look like a walking thyroid, You’re not a man, you’re a gland, You’re one big neck with sausage hands. Difficult as the subject matter could be, Joy As An Act of Resistance never feels suffocating. Whenever you feel you are gasping for air, a huge chorus or a burst of snarling wit comes along to puncture the gloom. The joy of the title might at first seem like yet another joke, but for all the bleakness, this is a cathartic and enlivening album.

  • Bodwyn
Very bad sound quality on the pink vinyl. Buy the regular black vinyl if you can
  • Frdi
Punk’s back, It’s been years that i have been craving for a good shoutout and two years ago i got this From the Massive belter “Mother”. It fueled my socialist fire again!! I thought they’re never gonn apull this off again and then came “Joy as an act of resistance” The title alone. It’s one great f#ck U tot the establishment and the right wing and I LIKE IT!!! Danny Nedelko is my Punksong of 2018!
  • Welen
June is one of the most beautiful , heart breaking songs ive ever heard .
  • Reemiel
I don't know about you, but I like nothing better than to listen to N.F.A.M.W.A.P. whilst I enjoy tender, sensual intercourse with my lovely girlfriend.
  • Dark_Sun
Mr tattoo man yells lots about things like man trouble and politic stuff. He also doesn’t like perms which sucks because people with perms are cool af
  • Chilldweller
Can anyone comment on the quality of this pressing? I’ve heard some not so good things about some other ones.
  • Dagdardana
the quality is fine, I like the mastering also, I have no idea why people always complaining...
  • Jazu
The quality of my pressing (Rough Trade, Orange) is generally fine, but the mastering/mixing of this album is atrocious. No dynamic range whatsoever! Anyone else notice the same? The band (and its music) in my mind deserves better.
  • Hinewen
Mine is very good. No pops, crackles, dodgy sound or anything like that. Not warped. All good. In fact, all great. Easily the best album of 2018, I can't get stop listening to it.
  • Kazijora
blurps... "The locked groove at the end of side B is well done. An excellent album from year 2018, in the mood of the epoch.
  • Xava
If it can help, i can tell there are no cracks or pops on my pressing. It's flat as well. It has the caracteristic to be a low volume pressing. I mean I need to pump up the volume on my amp after playing some other LPs or 12s. It's not a problem because the pressing remains noise free during quietest parts of the album. It gives a dynamic image of the sound, which is good for this kind of "roller coaster" album. The locked groove a
  • ℓo√ﻉ
My copy of the VMP pressing plays absolutely perfect with no locked groove senario present as purported on the submission. It is interesting that all the vinyl versions are munufactured using the same plates (PTKF2158-1-A BG 175945E1/A and PTKF2158-1-B BG 175945E2/A2). Currently I have played the Deluxe, Orange, Pink and VMP pressings and not encountered any 'locked groove' problem.
  • Beardana
The 'locked groove' can be better described as an intentional loop sound on the runout area on the last track of side B. However the intended effect is totally undedectable unless played on a manual turntable.
  • SmEsH
Shame on the vultures who bought it only to be able to re-sell it for 100€ or more. Be careful, your lack of humanity is showing.
  • Thetalen
Unfortunately I asked VMP and they said they're already all out of stock, so no luck there. I'll wait for a decent human being to put up one for sale for 40 bucks or less. But thx anyway. :)
  • Eyalanev
If you're a VMP member you should try reaching out to customer service to see if they have any leftovers. I know they hold onto a certain amount in case of defects/shipping problems etc., but after a while they'll set up a custom order if you ask and there's still some available. Got a copy of this coming to me in the mail this week.
  • Impala Frozen
My copy sounds perfect! It’s a great fucking album from workIng class heroes!
  • The_NiGGa
How does it sound? Do crop ora do not crop? Thanx in advance for responses
  • Went Tyu
After brushing away the normal amount of dust for a new record, it played very well. Not pops or surface noise. Pretty good pressing. Saw them live for the second time yesterday, in Lisbon. It was fucking beautiful!
  • Tehn
Perfect noiseless pressing quality. No crops, no background noise except the IDLES themselves ;)
  • Water
Saw Idles live in vancouver a few weeks ago. I don’t know if the album can compete with that. Amazing band amazing album
  • Malodred
My deluxe copy sounds just fine; no faults of any sorts.
  • Briciraz
What's the sound like on this one? No troubles with Rough Trade pressings in the past mind, but I've heard of faults on the Dlx version.
  • Karg
It sounds great, but the one i have has more surface noise than the pink vinyl.The pink version sounds better to me, dead quiet background and clarity but YMMVThey should essentially sound the same as they have the same matrices. Its depends what you end up with i guess :)
  • Мох
Great album, but another lousy pressing by GZ. I've gone through two of these and both were warped and covered in pops and clicks and cratered vinyl, and for $47 retail... What a joke. GZ and Rainbo are constantly competing for the title of worst QC.
  • INwhite
I've already gone through 2, both have the same imperfections on the surface that cause the pops, some in the same spots too. I think I'm just gunna give up on this one, it's way too pricy for the quality of the press. Glad yours sounds good though. I have the VMP edition coming which hopefully will be better. Hopefully it's different plates.
  • Vathennece
This shares the same matrix numbers as the pink vinyl (which sounds very good) so the black should be good too (if not better)May be worth trying another?
  • Huston
When I first heard Danny Neldelko being played on the radio,thought straight away post punk (1978/79).I then thought if it was from this period I would of been aware of it outstanding track from great album,this is just what the music scene now needs.
  • Rleyistr
Every once in a while something special happens on the UK's music scene. This album encapsulates one of those moments. Every track is a true gem.
  • Moralsa
Locked groove loop at the end of side 2, rottweiler.
