If you like your rock riffage, fast and meaty and your lyrics as acerbic and cutting as a "Spitting Image" sketch, yet you want a hook you could catch Moby Dick on, then this is DEFINATELY the album you need. This is such an under-rated chunk of British rock at its absolute best. Every single track on this album is bursting at the seams with quality and craftsmanship, and best of all, you feel fantastic after hearing them. You cannot help but bop around and sing along to this collection of stompers.
TV Tan boasts one of THE great lines in music..."20 Regal and a four pack / I guess I'm set for the night", Whilst "Baby is a Headf***" features some blistering guitarwork (and also features the late, great Mick Ronson). This is a rock album that stands up there with "Appetite For Destruction" and has not dated since its original release some 10 years ago. It's that good even girls like it!!! Buy it, play it and smile...a lot!!!!

The Wildhearts deserved to conquer the world but fate was not so kind. Criminally overlooked they are a gem for rock music. Now they have reformed and judging by their current singles, they will be able to rock us all again very soon!
"Earth Vs The Wildhearts" just edges it as their best album. Following on from the successfull structure laid down on the 'Don't Be Happy...Just Worry' E.P, this is the absoloute perfect mix of rock and pop. The vocals and melodies force you to sing/shout along at the top of your voice, and all the songs are instantly catchy.
However, The Wildhearts also worship the power of the Riff, and songs like 'Greetings..', 'Love U Till I Don't', 'Suckerpunch' and 'News Of The World' rock as hard as early Metallica while mainting a Cheap Trick accessability.
If possible try to get the re-issued version of this album which includes 'Caffeine Bomb' as that song storms along at 200mph! "Earth Vs.." maintains the FUN factor in huge amounts. As their career darkened so did the feel of the music (while still managing to produce excellent albums and progressing musically). "Earth Vs..." represents classic Wildhearts at their peak.
While it would be essentially true to say that this album boasts the power of Metallica, the guitar squall of Guns 'N' Roses and the catchyness of Cheap Trick, it would also be unfair. The Wildhearts are a style all to themselves. Fun, powerful, and rock at its finest.

Quite simply the best rock album I've ever heard. Gingers songwriting is second to none with every track on here (Tv Tan, headfuck) a classic. The riffs, melodies, harmonies and lyrics are yet to be matched by any band since. My personal favourite at the moment is Shame on me but every track is so good its hard to choose. If you like Therapy?, the darkness, Turbonegro, 3 Colours red, backyard babies, helicopters or any othe 90s rock band then listen to this because they did it first and they did it better

Following on from the promising debut mini-album 'Don't be happy...just worry', this is the album that really did it for the Wildhearts. From the full-on speed of 'Suckerpunch' and 'Caffeine Bomb' to the glorious melodies of 'Loveshit' and 'TV Tan', this is an album to warm even the coldest of hearts. A truly fantastic combination of heavy riffs and huge choruses. No fan of British rock in the nineties should be without this.

This album has no second-rate tracks on it. No fillers. If there is a better all-round rock and roll album, I haven't heard it. This is a showcase for Gingers songwriting, and shows what a master of the craft he is. Lyrics that are, at times, cleverer than a big box of clever things. If this album doesn't make you smile, check your pulse.

This has to be one of the best rock CD's of all times. Great songs, great guitars, and great vocals. Every song is excellent. It was a shame that The Wildhearts never got the fame they truly deserved, but now that they have reformed perhaps this will be their time. They are one of the best bands around.

Let's cut to the chase. This is the finest album available in the world. Every song is phenominal!! The finest choruses, riffs, lyrics, everything. Considering the album was created from a re-mastered demo-tape it makes it all the more impressive. The production is probably the finest I've ever heard, and there is not a single person who I have played the album to that hasn't loved it. It even blows the contractual 'best of' release out of the water. Sorry, but it really is that good.

This was The WiLDHEARTS first album proper yet it shows no signs of that. Earth Vs. became and instant classic on its release and should be a definite part any self respecting music fan's CD collection. It is a malange of heavy metal riffs and Orphean melodies. The late addition to the album of Caffeine Bomb (after its success as a single) is one of the many highlights on the album. It is sad to say that since their unfortunate demise, many of the recent 'records of the nineties' charts do neglect Earth Vs., but this is by no means a comment upon it. Nor, for that matter, is the fact The WiLDHEARTS actually managed to get better and better with their proceeding albums. To not own this would be an offence punishable with deaf(-ness).
