Release year

Producer
The Wildhearts , Mark Dodson, Spike Drake, Simon Efemey

1993's Earth vs the Wildhearts should work for us - big guitar riffs and power pop melodies. But it doesn't - we try to figure out why

We’re checking out the 1993 album Earth vs the Wildhearts by The Wildhearts, which came up in the comments for our recent review of The Almighty. While they share some similarity in the big riffing department, The Wildhearts take a decidedly different approach to the vocals, dipping into power pop melodies and harmonies throughout. Jason, who picked the album, says this should be his favorite band, but isn’t. Tune in to find out why.
