  1. It might be difficult to expect such restlessly creative musicmakers to sit still for long, but Expo 86 shows that Wolf Parade could be a place worth settling in for a while.
  2. The Montreal quartet is mostly successful in this balancing act, delivering a handful of thematically-obtuse pop missiles heavy on reverb and guitar, with trademark synths still lurking low in the mix.
  3. Expo 86 just straight up rocks. It never lets up on the monstrous riffs it delivers in its first 10 seconds.
  4. Expo 86 is a brilliant reinforcement of what occurs when true chemistry exists in a band.
  5. The album is a perfect mixture of the band's first two records, blended with an equal part of their rock swagger and part their post-electro swing.
