★ The 1975 - I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It (2016)
1975 was a turning point of music. The middle of one of the richest decades, the beggining of reggae, disco, punk and electronica ! An extremely rich year in terms of influential albums produced.
From 2002 it is also the name of an alternative band from Manchester. Their second double album is a mixture of funk, electropop and rock. It could have been created at the 80s, 90s or 00s. It has all the elements to be timeless.
