3.0 out of 5 stars not bad but not all that great, 27 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Lupercalia (Audio CD)
Lupercalia, an album about love that i just cant fall in love with...

the album that we have been waiting for since 2009 is okay but it lack some of the basic elements that i long for in mr wolfs work. many of the songs having a very un finished and unrefined emptiness that i find almost impossible to bare. many of the lyrics are simple, but in some cases a bit too simple for my liking, i have nothing against simplicity but i feel the word in Lupercalia often fall into the dreaded pit we all call cliche, with many of the instrumentation and effect being off and untidy which is made most clear in the intro to the track "Bermondsey street" with its bazaar resonating noise with oafishly become a piece of very chirpy piece of harp. the track william is short and end somewhat abruptly with vocal which is beautiful but completely alien to the song and in my opinion wasted and a track so cliche and lacklustre that i can hardly muster the energy to to keep the album playing the penultimate track "together" has a somewhat tacky Euro pop beat and although my favourite vocal performance of the album the lyrical content again lets the song down. my other major issue is the length of the album at 11 tracks long i find the album has rushed through and finished before you can really feel what the albums vibe.

I would be unjust to say the album was in anyway a complete failure as there are some good quality pop song with the beautiful "armistice" and the indie pop tunes that are "the city," "house," and "time of my life"

the album i feels a bit effortless and a bit sloppy around the edges many parts of it lack a the loving energy of "the magic position" the passion of "the bachelor" and the sensitivity of "wind in the wires"
ultimately the album was a bit to tacky and a bit to rushed so i will award it this 3/5
