iTunes Review

This is Wire Train’s official release of a 1993 album that MCA Records paid for but deemed “too weird” to put out. The band, which got their early-'80s start on the mighty 415 Records with songs like “I’ll Do You,” had evolved musically by leaps and bounds by time they recorded this, their sixth and final album. And it smokes from top to bottom: There’s amped-up psych-funk (“Who Give a S**t," “Drive All Night”), Beatle-esque turns (“I Was Wrong”), spare R&B (“Picture in a Picture,” “She Is the World”), and sheer poetic beauty (“Enemy”).

Customer Reviews

Snug

It took 16 years for this to be released, but in a strange way, it is almost worth it. This album is obviously a sister album to the ground breaking and revolutionary No Soul No Strain. When other bands were zigging, Wire Train was zagging. They have no fear as musicians - much of the album appears to be recorded live as a medley. The songwriting is flawless and the harmonies are mesmerizing. This album is as fresh today as it was 16 years ago. It is a shame the record company never gave them the backing they deserved. Each Wire Train album tells a very different story.

Finally released!!

SNUG is an album Wire Train recorded in 1993 as a follow up to No Soul No Strain, but was never released. An outstanding effort, definitely out of place with the grunge fanaticism at the time, SNUG is a loose, funky, soulful collection of songs, several bleeding from one into the other. Tight rhythm section, solid songwriting and lyrics, cutting guitar, emotional singing. Check out Superstar or Drive All Night. It makes one wonder what the path of this band would have been had if their record label had the guts to release it at the time.

Wow - are these the same guys?!?

I remember a great band called Wire Train back in the early 80's - I played them in college on my radio station.
They had an album called "…in a chamber" & I LOVED it! Loved the guitars…anyway, have they survived in any form?
Songs including "I Forget It All (When I See You)" & "Chamber Of Hellos" were just great! Ahhh, back in the day….
