MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE - IF
is Mindless Self Indulgence
's latest album, and I think it's a quality album, although Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy
still remains as my favourite Mindless Self Indulgence
album. You can easily tell that the lyrics of the songs are a lot more mature. I preferred Mindless Self Indulgence
's earlier albums more - the humour of the songs has lessened a lot in this album - this disappointed me, because I have always considered Mindless Self Indulgence
as a humorous band. Mindless Self Indulgence
's earlier albums had more diverse songs, and I feel that the songs on If
sound too much alike.
Although the lyrics have changed dramatically, the sound of the music has stayed relatively similar. The odd thing about this album are the differences between the quality of the songs. Some songs from this album, such as Never Wanted to Dance
and Evening Wear
are of great quality, and are some of my favourite songs ever, whereas the rest of the songs on the album are of much worse quality.
Mindless Self Indulgence
has matured a lot since their album, and they are now a more serious band. This is a little disappointing for me, but at the same time, I also feel that this is good, because the style of band's music changes, just like people do. If you prefer more serious music but still with humour in it, then I would suggest If
. If you enjoy listening to more humorous music that is a little more out of the ordinary, then I would suggest listening to one of Mindless Self Indulgence
's earlier albums, such as Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy
