Wild 6 Mar. 2002
By Edward Bosnar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although otherwise sophisticated and astoundingly knowledgeable on matters of music, most people I know in this corner of Europe have never even heard of X, to say nothing of being familiar with any of their albums or songs (many were also surprised by the fact that ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek acted as producer for a punk band). So I was only too happy to shell out the shipping costs to order this CD (all my cassettes long since lost or permanently `borrowed') to enlighten friends, acquaintances and other music lovers. "Wild Gift" is probably the most standard X album, and the bonus tracks on this edition are a really good supplement to the original tracks. Although not as hardcore as other U.S. punk legends like the Ramones or Dead Kennedys, X's early works from the late `70s and early `80s still sound fresh and relevant.

My favorite X album 10 April 2002
By Elonna Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is my favorite X album. Every song is perfect, or very near close to being perfect! Great lyrics, great music! This has many of the best songs X ever wrote, including "The Once Over Twice", "White Girl", "In This House That I Call Home", ect. I notice some of the x-tra songs have already been included on the X anthology. X were the best American punk band, ever. A punk band that managed to pull off being romantic and poetic. But never cheesy.

That Wild Los Angeles Sound 9 Dec. 2004
By Erik Rust - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If the chaotic howl of LOS ANGELES was up your alley then you're sure to get some more kicks from WILD GIFT. Again, the legendary L.A. punks plod along like wild stallions with their patented formula of dissonant harmony, hit and run rockabilly guitar-slinging, and a rockbed of unbridled rhythm. The approach remains much the same with the exception of a few new tricks such as the cha-cha-ish "Adult Books," which remains an X classic. Other standouts include the riotous "We're Desperate," the sexy chug of "Universal Corner," and the lightning strike that is "Beyond and Back." This re-packaged edition comes complete with some incendiary live performances and some exciting, though decidedly rough, demo takes. A notable bonus is the album booklet with an insightful essay, track analysis, and nifty photos. While WILD GIFT does not have quite the impact of the seminal LOS ANGELES, it still delivers a ferocious punch and proves to be equally unbridled and nearly as essential.

A wild gift you should be proud to own 4 Oct. 2001
By Stanley Alderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
X is one of the great underappreciated bands of all time. Seeing as this is their best album, means that Wild Gift is one of the most underappreciated albums of all time. I discovered X in 1985, 4 years after this album came out. In the past 16 years this album has comforted me through break ups, unrequited love, hardtimes, and hangovers. Exene's film noir gone bad persona, John Doe's everyman charisma, and Billy Zoom just being one of the coolest dudes alive gave X the best front line in the business. Every track is excellent, but pay extra attention to "In This House That I Call Home," "Were Desperate," "White Girl," "When our Love Passed out on the Couch," and "Year 1." The remastered tracks are excellent, they are heads above the "Los Angeles/Wild Gift" CD that Slash put out years ago. A rock legend like Ray Manzerek believed in X years ago, any lover of rock music/poetry/American lives would be wise to do the same.

Gotta get back to the basics 13 Dec. 2001
By Adrian Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another ace 2001 reissue from long-lost El Lay lovers John Doe and Exene Cervenka, who catalog the travails of sex and dying in high society with wit, wisdom and a tragic desperation that mixes up the Doors, rockabilly riffs and locomotive-breath rhythmic propulsion to make their music eminently go bang, as well as squish, groan and scream. When it comes to raunchy romantic relationships, "The Once Over Twice," "White Girl," "Adult Books" and "When Our Love Passed Out On The Couch" are as seminal as they (er) come.
