    Pressed together, it becomes apparent how pleasurably the band’s entire discography has crystallized. Capturing the quicksilver violence of youth may be beyond us now, as it is for Wild Beasts, but we still make time to celebrate the night’s dark chemistry.

    The Cumbrian art-rockers go out on this crisp, thoroughly engaging high: a live in the studio, Boy King-heavy stroll through some of their big-hitters recorded at RAK in London over two days last summer. [Mar 2018, p.96]

    It pulls off the neat trick of wrapping up their legacy while also adding something new to it.

    More engaging and more thoughtful than a standard best-of, Last Night All My Dreams Came True is a rousing goodbye from one of the most acclaimed bands of their generation.

    While it might not be a satisfying goodbye, Last Night All My Dreams Came True is--like all of Wild Beasts’ albums--an artfully rendered snapshot of a band always in motion.

    Only on "Hooting And Howling" and "All The Kings' Men" do you catch the sharp, hot stink of their once feral presence. [Mar 2018, p.35]

    Neither a live album nor a greatest hits album in a true sense yet both simultaneously for Wild Beasts. I have to say I could never countNeither a live album nor a greatest hits album in a true sense yet both simultaneously for Wild Beasts. I have to say I could never count myself as a big fan of the band. They once played a gig in my hometown and I didn't bother going despite being familiar with their "Smother" album. This is something I now regret having listened to "Last Night All My Dreams Came Through". This is a band with seriously interesting songs playing them in an incredibly comfortable environment which leads to a confident, slick yet organic feel. Guitars, synths, vocals and rhythm section are all doing something you don't hear every day. I'm not sure this album will push me to check out their back catalog extensively but I do really like it and gladly shelled out cash for it. Expand
