  1. The Wolf is a primer on self-actualization, but AWK's sharpened focus comes at the expense of creating memorable tunes.

    The songs are longer and lack the cheesiness that made I Get Wet so joyous. AWK played all the instruments himself so the music itself soundsThe songs are longer and lack the cheesiness that made I Get Wet so joyous. AWK played all the instruments himself so the music itself sounds bland and unimpressive. The album has a better concept albeit a reverse of the previous album (searching for the meaning of life through party for this album). I was disappointed with this album and would give it a miss unless you want to hear the work of a man that has let the steroids get to his head. Full Review »

    If you have heard any of awk's material you know full well what you are getting into here. enormous, typically uplifting, hook filled soundIf you have heard any of awk's material you know full well what you are getting into here. enormous, typically uplifting, hook filled sound bonanzas. i used this album as a b-12 shot while i was at my lowest with a lifelong muscular disease and it will forever hold a special place in my heart. not a dud on the album if you ignore 'make sex' which is easy to do. get this album and feel good now Full Review »
