Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 11 December 2007
After the disappointing "Send" album and the poorly executed re-issue of their first three albums, I am glad to report that this new EP is Wire back to doing what they do best. This is angular pop in the Wire style. Harking back to the days of "The Ideal Copy" and even "The First Letter" these tracks have hooks a-plenty. For instance "No Warning Given" is pure Colin Newman, showcasing his typical pop sensibility and interest in electronica. "23 Years Too Late" is a classic Lewis and Gilbert vocal duo. "Our Time", jagged and pumping and "Desert Diving" is reminiscent of AC Marias, languid and lush.

Having thought that Wire were gone for good, being inactive for the last few years this EP has come right out of the blue. But this is great stuff, leaving this listener wanting more. Hopefully a new album is just around the corner. But for now I am very glad to say, welcome back!!
