Idles, TANGK album review: their incendiary energy takes a surprising diversion

Crawler, in 2021, showed an escape route, adding some electronic textures and showing Talbot beginning to test out his singing voice instead of his shouting one. This time, as well as regular producer Kenny Beats, they’ve enlisted the help of Nigel Godrich. Believe it or not, the hissing beats, looped piano and dramatic tension of Idea 01, and the slow synth groans of Monolith, do sound a bit like Godrich’s best-known collaborators, Radiohead.
