The Wildhearts Must Be Destroyed! [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
After unleashing the cleverly titled Riff After Riff After Motherfucking Riff EP in 2002, English hard rockers the Wildhearts took their long overdue comeback trail into full-length album territory with 2003's The Wildhearts Must Be Destroyed. Problem is, it may not be the sort of comeback the band's few but fanatic fans were expecting. Sure, most of the old songwriting tricks heavy guitar bombast, big pop hooks, cleverly snide lyrics normally employed by prolific singer/guitarist Ginger remain unchanged -- check! The band's inimitable ability to mix Cheap Trick bubblegum with Metallica heavyness is well intact -- check! And the official return of much-loved second ...

After unleashing the cleverly titled Riff After Riff After Motherfucking Riff EP in 2002, English hard rockers the Wildhearts took their long overdue comeback trail into full-length album territory with 2003's The Wildhearts Must Be Destroyed. Problem is, it may not be the sort of comeback the band's few but fanatic fans were expecting. Sure, most of the old songwriting tricks heavy guitar bombast, big pop hooks, cleverly snide lyrics normally employed by prolific singer/guitarist Ginger remain unchanged -- check! The band's inimitable ability to mix Cheap Trick bubblegum with Metallica heavyness is well intact -- check! And the official return of much-loved second guitarist C.J. Jagdhar in itself pretty much validates the reunion exercise as a whole -- check! But for all these validations, ...Must Be Destroyed is still missing a certain, crucial X-factor to help it attain the volatile, unpredictable spark that made the Wildhearts the most dangerous band of the mid-'90s. Opening number "Nexus Icon" is forceful enough, but, like subsequent, chart-minded numbers such as the "Only Love" featuring Motown-like female backup vocals, "Someone That Won't Let Me Go," and even the not-so "vanilla" "Vanilla Radio," it feels rather predictable and one-dimensional. The abnormally pop-tastic even by Ginger's standards "One Love, One Life, One Girl" follows, and actually sounds like it may possess the legs to become a lasting classic in the end. But after screaming their way through the utterly forgettable sub-two-minute thrash-out "Get Your Groove On," the band settles into a long string of commercial rockers "So Into You," "It's All up to Me," "Top of the World," etc. that are virtually indistinguishable from one another and leave little to no sensory residue. Jumping to conclusions and why not?, one might assume that pressure to score a hit finally rendered the Wildhearts safe as milk. But given the band's lengthy hiatus prior to this rebirth, it's more realistic to realize that ...Must be Destroyed finds the Wildhearts far too aware of themselves -- probably because they were still just getting reacquainted with their old roles, and what it felt like being the Wildhearts.

    It's been too long, but The Wildhearts are back

    After a decade of withdrawal, The Wildhearts grace us with their second US release of 2004. Are you tired of the grunge aftermath? Finally, somebody who is having fun making great rock-n-roll. This album has everything Rock music needs. The Wildhearts explode on the opening track and just keep rocking throughout. Ginger and the boys assualt you with crunching guitars and pounding drums which are offset by witty lyrics and hooky melodies that won't leave your head. This is the classic recipe perfected by The Wildhearts on several UK-only CD's and now it's our turn. This will be the ultimate summer party album. Guys will like the riffs while girls will like the sentiments. Pick it up and thank me later. Rock Lives, thanks to The Wildhearts, and this is not open to negotiation.

    Rock and Roll Heaven

    Searing rock with a melodic touch, The Wildhearts are the greatest rock band few have heard of (at least in the U.S.!). Their latest is another example of what consumate songwriters and performers they are. Buy this CD now!

    BUY THIS ALBUM!

    This is available as a U.S. release now too! Possibly one of the best albums ever recorded...hands down! The Wildhearts mix everything that is great about rock into one distinct sound. If you like metal, punk, or pop there is something in this album that will blow you away! Check out all of their other albums too! You won't be disappointed!
