    Sure its an uneven album and you may visit the next button more often then you'd like. Overall though the highs are dizzingly high and the production is beautiful.

    No Hope Kids is great. The A.V. Club and P4K got it right.

    Sampled each song and couldn't even listen to them. Fuzz, fuzz and more fuzz. It's gotta be a joke right?

  1. Though a solid and promising outing, Wavves isn’t a revelatory record. It fits nicely into the "scene," however vague that semblance is these days.
  2. There's thrilling evidence of compelling, thoughtful craftsmanship.
  3. There’s an energy coursing through this, and records like this, that is undeniable....But there’s also your standard fare. Several of the songs sound the same. There are a couple of atmospheric tunes that add no atmosphere.
