Welsh rockers, thumb The Joy Formidable, sovaldi sale have returned with their second album, viagra ‘Wolf’s Law’, an album that feels much more complete compared to their debut, ‘The Big Roar’, which had far too much in the way of filler, yet showed tremendous promise. Wolf’s Law is a great example of how you can create a great album without reinventing the wheel.
The Joy Formidable thrill by solely being guitar thrashingly, drum pummellingly loud. This album is no different. “Tendons”, “Bats” and “Maw Maw Song” satisfy a primal desire in rock music, which is to be noisy. These stand to enforce the fact that The Joy Formidable are at their best when they are loud and getting progressively louder as songs go on.
“Silent Treatment” briefly sees ‘Wolf’s Law’ veer off track halfway through, with the band clearly conscious of being a one trick pony. Instead of being emotive or a statement of their versatility, this uninspiring, musically ‘pretty’ song raises the question of genuine lyrical inability. Despite emotional intentions, lyrics manage to feel shoehorned around the music. This is the case with many of their songs, which is a forgivable sacrifice for great music. With such a slow piece in “Silent Treatment”, having a poor interrelationship between music and lyrics can’t help but be criticised.
Despite “Silent Treatment” being allowed to sneak onto the album, Wolf’s Law is a scintillating follow up from a band showing that are destined for great things. Even when taking in to consideration my pro-Welsh biased slant.
