    While the album has the signature Wavves sound, the songwriting and production is taking on a sophistication that only comes with a progressing level of musical maturity.

    You’re Welcome isn’t a mere homage to the history of popular music; the band has assimilated these influences into its own sonic approach. As a result, even Wavves’ familiar inspirations feel invigorated.

    For now, You’re Welcome is a welcome addition to Wavves’ discography, and achieves a range of maturation, both sonically and topically, that Williams has not previously exhibited.

    What follows is a weird tangle of backward orchestral samples, bleeps and big-beat drumming. If the record seems messy, in fact it’s the opposite. There’s intention in every measure.

    He goes some way to making amends with some of his most endearing lyrics yet on You’re Welcome.

    You’re Welcome feels stale, dried of both new inspiration or improvisational allure.

    You're Welcome stumbles through grating doldrums on garage-rock autopilot, with junkyard fuzz that's more crap-nasty than good-nasty. [3 Jun 2017, p.52]

    A sequel to King of the Beach. "You're Welcome" comes after V, Wavves' most lackluster, though not bad, album to date (in my opinion). You'reA sequel to King of the Beach. "You're Welcome" comes after V, Wavves' most lackluster, though not bad, album to date (in my opinion). You're Welcome brings some new and old ideas to the table making it have a very diverse sound. Experimentation with sampling and other electronic effects are present throughout the album. The standout tracks on the album include: "You're Welcome", "No Shade", "Million Enemies", "Hollowed Out", "Stupid In Love", and "Dreams of Grandeur". Expand

Although pop-punk is generally looked down upon by many critics, Nathan carves out a very distinct sound/style via his interesting production and witty lyrics and proves to be a very worthwhile artist. My favourite tracks include Daisy, Animal, Dreams of Grandeur, Million Enemies, Come to The Valley, Stupid in Love, Hollowed Out and Under. Least favourite track: I Love You Expand

It shifts from being a bitAs someone that does like a fair amount of Wavves, I will say that this album is kind of a teeter totter. It shifts from being a bit derivative of their past material to going for a bit of weirder experimentation. And neither one are all that enjoyable with lacking a lot of the punch and hooks of songs from King of the Beach and Afraid of Heights. There are some great songs on here like Daisy and Animal, but at best it tries to be different and ends up failing on it (I.E. Come to the Valley) and at worst is just a trite Wavves song. Expand
