    Yolk in the Fur is a statement album. It’s an experience that flows effortlessly, combining a glistening, guitar-driven atmosphere with romantically-charged lyrics that make the whole thing nearly impossible to resist.

    The album yielded a substantial return on whatever that audience invested. But Wild Pink ultimately came across like a conversation Ross preferred to keep to himself. Yolk in the Fur can’t wait to share it.

    Yolk In The Fur proves Wild Pink as a band that proclaim a strength in authenticity that is matched by a growth in character.

    The first half of Yolk in the Fur [has] a cohesive and cinematic feel. ... The second half of Yolk isn’t as strong, but it still holds interesting developments.

    This is a major leap forward from a band that put one of the best albums of 2017. Easily my favorite of the year so far.

    So many great lyrics on this album, impossible to pick out a favorite. Great instrumentals too, with many unexpected turns

    I really liked the first album and listened to it a lot to wind down at night or on a calm hike. The 2nd album YOLK IN THE FUR is a strongI really liked the first album and listened to it a lot to wind down at night or on a calm hike. The 2nd album YOLK IN THE FUR is a strong album that starts off really well and the whole first half have a steady drive that is unique yet simple and feels almost familiar upon first listen. The 2nd half isn't quite as strong but a solid 8 in my book! Expand
