    Weaker moments such as early single Fluffy or drummer Joel Amey’s drippy vocal on Swallowtail can’t mar a debut giddy with vim and future potential.

So did they deliver inWhat can be said about Wolf Alice that hasn't been said already. We know Ellie is great. We know they have potential. So did they deliver in My Love Is Cool? I so rarely hand out 10s nowadays, but this album deserves it. Should I even make the effort to list every bright spot? "Bros" "Moaning Lisa Smile" "Freazy" "Giant Peach" "Fluffy". Simply incredible. Many bands go trough an entire career without 5 songs as good as these, let alone all 5 being in the same album. I like what I hear from Wolf Alice. Only one question remains: is this their peak?

So many tracks on here are an absolute blast to listen to, from the phenomenal heavier headbangers (Giant Peach, Fluffy, Moaning Lisa Smile) to the absolutely perfect duo Lisbon and Silk or gorgeous post-rock/grunge blend Swallowtail. The only below-average song would be Freazy, which is kind of forgettable, but the rest of the record is going to blow you away. Full Review »

It contains memorable tracks, good lyrics and something special that every song has in order to give an special meaning and identify with at least one of them. The album is really versatile, it plays with different rhythms and sound in every track. They manage to make an album with unique songs. I think it should be consider one of the best debut rock albums of this decade. Full Review »
