I quite fancy me some Foals. I like their guitars. I like their bass and drums. I like the intensity of singer Yannis. And I really like their latest album Total Life Forever. I also really enjoyed THE STAGE INVASION at the Vancouver gig. I say as much in this review. Plus, feast your eyes on the pretty pictures as well.
