All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
With influences and roots in screamo, hardcore, and punk, Long Beach duo This Wild Life were originally conceived as a pop-punk band in the classic SoCal mode. Members Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso took their crack at playing explosive, amped-up gigs and even issued an initial EP in that style before doing an about-face and slimming down to the succinct acoustic format heard here on their Epitaph debut, Clouded. It was through the revelation of hearing Dashboard Confessional's Swiss Army Romance that the two decided they could achieve the same amount of passion and drive as before, but delivered instead with two guitars and tight harmonies.

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
With influences and roots in screamo, hardcore, and punk, Long Beach duo This Wild Life were originally conceived as a pop-punk band in the classic SoCal mode. Members Kevin Jordan and Anthony Del Grosso took their crack at playing explosive, amped-up gigs and even issued an initial EP in that style before doing an about-face and slimming down to the succinct acoustic format heard here on their Epitaph debut, Clouded. It was through the revelation of hearing Dashboard Confessional's Swiss Army Romance that the two decided they could achieve the same amount of passion and drive as before, but delivered instead with two guitars and tight harmonies. Produced by Copeland's Aaron Marsh, Clouded builds on the foundation set by the band's earlier singles like "Puppy Love" and "Take It Back," adding strings, piano, and subtle percussion to adorn this new set of songs. The distant chime of a vibraphone adds a nice austere quality to the song "History" and mellow electric guitars flesh out the crescendos on tunes like "Concrete" and "Don't Say." Their voices are strong and clean and the parts are well-played, as This Wild Life offer their own unique take on a familiar style, turning down the volume on the punk and focusing more on the pop.

    I saw these guys play at warped tour and fell in love.  Since listening to Clouded on spotify several times I decided to support the band and buy the album.  Exceptionally wonderful sound.  LOVE LOVE!
