Every Song by The 1975 Ranked From Worst to Best

It’s been just over a month now since British indie band The 1975 released their 3rd Studio album “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.” Front-man Matty Healy confirmed that their 4th album titled “Notes on a Conditional Form” will be released soon in 2019. After listening to “ABIIOR” for over a month now, I feel like I’ve had plenty of time to appreciate the subtle nuances and let certain songs that were initially disappointing, grow on me. This to me feels like the perfect time to take all of The 1975’s songs and rank them from worst to best. I’m taking all 3 studio albums, the 4 EP’s and anything else released in between. Also be aware that this list is completely my opinion and not based off of any statistics or sales. Once “Notes on a Conditional Form” releases in May, this list will have an update.
