Total Life Forever is the second studio album by British indie rock band Foals, released on 10 May 2010 through Transgressive Records. Prior to the album's release, the band described it as sounding "like the dream of an eagle dying". It was produced by Luke Smith, and was recorded at Svenska Grammofon Studion in Gothenburg. Upon its release, the album charted in numerous countries worldwide, including number eight in the UK Albums Chart.
Album · 2010 · 12 Songs. This Oxford quintet continues to find new audio terrain on their second album, 2010’s Total Life Forever. Foals’ view of techno isn’t some manic, hedonistic pump but a measured, textured crawl through the fixations of the night where one’s anxieties are relieved or expressed in the tense dynamics of music that fights against the machine for its humanity.

Every record is shipped in original factory-applied shrink wrap and has never been touched by human hands. 2010 sophomore album from the British outfit, produced by former Clor Luke Smith. The album was recorded over Summer 2009 at Svenska Gramofon in Sweden. While the first album drew comparisons to Talking Heads and Krautrock, this second full length is a darker, slower affair. The restless, woven guitar tapestries of their debut offering have softened on it's successor. The pace is less breakneck but still as resonant.
At every turn, Total Life Forever is inviting. Much more alive than earlier efforts, it's an album with a complexion that constantly changes with time. When Philippakis' voice is first introduced in "Blue Blood", it's done with cavernous levels of reverb, his thin, delicate falsetto distant and sweet enough to recall My Morning Jacket's Jim James. Foals' music has frequently felt monumental in scope, often at the expense of the listener. But the way this one song in particular blooms, from its first traces of guitar melody to tear-jerking coda six minutes later, garners more goosebumps with every listen. It sounds exactly like what they set out to accomplish, done fluidly and organically.
