WIRES ON FIRE: Self-titled: CD

Feb 15, 2007

While this was playing, my mind was wandering so much, I forgot several times I was writing a review. That said, it makes great background music. I had to start over and listen again, to analyze this as experimental, meandering rock. Or more accurately post-grunge Sub Pop rock. It was vaguely like Mudhoney/Green River meets Backyard Babies if they all smoked pot and lied around noodling while sprawled on the ground after a big taco dinner. It bored me, but if you like heavy, arty rock you may enjoy the stylings here. Not my cup of Schlitz.
