Different than any other release

This is definetly a hard-core fan only buy. Not recommend as something to introduce the band. Very roughly recorded but it gives that rawness you come to love in punk. In this early release there is more than just standard punk that is found on every other of their albums. "Depression" has a sort of beastie boys verses with a punk chorus and "Maybes" has a very funk groove sound except for the chorus again. Most songs have some solid hooks and are quite catchy as well as having a slightly different punk style or feeling than Pennywise is known to have. The closer cover of "Stand By Me" is quite funny. The first half is a very soft, mellow and quite impressively sung verse and chorus and then it suddenly breaks into the other half with fast punk version with some swearing squeezed in with the original lyrics. All in all, its a sweet album if your a fan, its a really cool add to their discography because it really has a different style that is fun and yet is not too different to feel like its a different band


Wild Card est selon moi un album absolument mauvais qui ne mérite très peu d'attention. J'aime aucune tounes de ce disque. C'est l'époque juste avant que Pennywise devienne bon. Tout le monde aime la version de Stand By Me Sauf moi.

Through constant touring and recording, as well as appearances at surfing and snowboarding...
