I was surprised by how strong Wall Street is. I’ve been enjoying it much more than I had the band’s last album Non Stop Rock N Roll (which I happened to like). Wall Street is more consistent for my money (HA!) and seems a bit heavier at times as well. There’s no great shift is sound though. Wig Wam is still offering up their signature concoction of big choruses, excellent production, cheese and melodic sweetness. Wig Wam is still the guilty pleasure we’ve all come to know and love.

The crown jewel in this collection of songs is the acoustic-electric rocker “Wrong Can Feel So Right”. Fun lyrics, great chorus and the song itself is a good time. You’re dead inside if you don’t fall in love with this song. One of the catchiest songs I’ve heard all year.

Well worth picking up. My favorite Wig Wam release so far.

The band throws on an interesting bonus track with this release: a cover of Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out”. They do a good job of it but stay pretty faithful to the original with some beefed up production.

Highlights: “Wall Street”, “Victory Is Sweet”, “The Bigger The Better”, “Bleeding Daylight”, “Tides Will Turn”, “Wrong Can Feel So Right”, “One Million Enemies”
