    Love this band, but this is their weakest effort.

    A couple of decent moments but overall it's a big disappointment from previous releases. Seems overly thought out and produced and too mature, which result in boring songs for me. Ferment and Chrome are unbeatable.

  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. This album is absolutely terrible, a total abomination.
  3. Wishville is seamless, expansive and full of go-nowhere moments.
