  • Summary: The debut album for the New Hampshire rock band was produced by Rob Schnapf.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 1 out of 10
  1. One thought-provoking knockout anthem after another marks the uplifting debut by this New Hampshire quartet.
  2. Wild Light certainly will not be pegged as the most original, best dressed or smartest band in Indie Pop, but the group wears all of Indie Pop on its proverbial sleeve and seems fit to carry the Indie Pop flag--at least for a little while.
  3. At times old-fashioned, Wild Light doesn't feel stuck in the past. There's plenty of mid-tempo despair here--perhaps too much--but on songs such as 'Future Towns,' the band is finding nostalgia in better days that might never come
  4. Even when the guys indulge in cheesy temptations, like the piano at the end of 'Lawless River,' it's usually in the service of making their catchy, extroverted anthems even more so.
  5. Adult Nights' guitar pop tugs at your heartstrings without sacrificing smarts. Not bad for a first go-round.
  6. The thirteen-song cycle does a lot to support the minor hype that's built around the band, yet simultaneously flattens some of the bubbling hyperbole.
  7. Their debut heaps vague twenty-something lyrics onto a colorless emo palette and even producer Rob Schnapf can't save Adult Nights from being as cold as a Granite State ice storm. [Winter 2009, p.79]
