WRONG WORDS, THE: Self-titled: CD

May 27, 2011

Power pop with some psychedelic influences and a bit of early XTC. The songs are catchy without being overbearing. I like the backing vocals for how they give the music another texture—a little sunnier in an already sunny-sounding band (if any of that makes sense). The guitar has a somewhat sparse sound, but clean, and the drums really are direct and effective. Must admit the opening lines to “A Cold Wind” are funny. “Cross the Line” is the strongest of the twelve and, alone, is worth picking this CD up.
