  1. At its best 'Wishville' recalls the finest hours of Psychedelic Furs and Mancunian goth heroes The Chameleons and at its worst, the pomp stadium rock of Simple Minds.
  2. The band hasn't taken the same sort of strides it has in the past. That's not to say Wishville isn't a strong album, but in the realm of Catherine Wheel recordings, it doesn't deliver on the promise of Adam and Eve.
  3. Wishville is seamless, expansive and full of go-nowhere moments.
  4. You can't tell if Wishville is the sound of a band losing steam or just being too self-conscious.
  5. This album is absolutely terrible, a total abomination.
