Visions of a Life - Wolf Alice

Heard it yet?...What do you think about it?

I absolutely LOVED My Love is Cool - I mean really loved it...one of the best albums of last few years IMO.

All the plaudits that came its and their way were thoroughly deserved.

Expectations and anticipation were high for this follow up.......

It is only a couple of weeks since release but I am just not feeling it - sometimes records are growers of course and often growers end up being real favourites.....sometimes albums I instantly really like fade quickly, so it is too early to make definitive judgements yet but I am so far really disappointed....

I'm really into this album. My Love Is Cool was a phenomenal debut, and a tough record to follow, but Visions of a Life met my expectations. Heavenward and Don't Delete the Kisses would have to be my top two.

I was excited to see what Wolf Alice would draw up with a bit of experimentation, and the results look promising for the future of this band. A more focused effort might benefit the group on its next venture.

Gonna listen to it on the way to work every day this week to see if it makes a dent.

Formidable Cool is terrific.

Yes, great shout. I really enjoy Ellie's more hushed pefomances on this record (Sky Musings is another good example).

need to check them out.  i just got the Trainspotting 2 soundtrack on vinyl and their song on it is one of my faves.  i hear it's from their first album.  i'll probably start at the beginning with them.

I have to say that so far itís a huge letdown for me...

The only songs that I like are Heavenward, Yuk Foo and DDTK. The rest sound like a band that floats in uncertainty and doesnít quite know what to do...

I hope itís not the case, but it seems to me theyíve run out of ideas after My Love Is Cool.

It has grown on me a lot.

Still prefer My Love is Cool though.

Speaking of cool...

That is very cool... better than U2's idea of fan interaction.
