Reseña de álbum

In an interview with Crawdaddy magazine after the band regrouped in 2000, Wire frontman and guitarist Colin Newman said that the band's original intention was to destroy rock & roll by removing the roll from the equation. Drummer Robert Grey (aka Robert Gotobed), played a large part in the removal of "the roll" from the band's music. His straightforward timekeeping eschewed fills and cymbal splashes in favor of a simple, driving rhythm that gave much of the band's music its linear, avant-garde feel. But despite their roots in punk, they've always had a few tunes on every album that could pass for pop hits, and that holds true here. "Please Take" opens the record with its warm melodic feel, even if the lyrics ("Please take your knife out of my back") are anything but the usual pop fodder. The album ends with another pop gem, "Red Barked Trees," a polished tune that sounds like a psychedelic-era Beatles number, complete with a scathing lyric that lays out the ills of modern society with bitter irony. The rest of the album ranges over the styles that have made the band so hard to pin down. "Two Minutes" is a punk screed about hating everyone and everything, driven by Gray's measured pounding and distorted clanging guitars, "Moreover" is a noisy rock/rap tune driven by short, sharp lyrical bursts, grinding guitar, and Gray's steady traps, and "Smash," another clattering, linear punk tune that's actually broken up by a chorus. Red Barked Tree is another strong effort, and while Wire is still making music that shatters expectations, after 30 years they're sounding a lot like the mainstream rockers they once despised. ~ j. poet, Rovi

Wired for life.

I guess will be listening til we die. Long live the FAll, Wire, Buzzcocks. (We'll see if you can say the same about the crap you listen to today, forty years from now.) Remember how the Sex Pistols album was on your turntable for a month. Doesn't happen anymore does it? Stop Searching...You've had it all along.


All i can say is i enjoyed the whole album from the first note to the last... has classic punk sounds to it... yet is perfectly suited for now.
I have to say this is in my top 10 albums for 2010 and i look forward to listening to it all through he next year.


I discovered this band back in 1979 when their album 154 came out. Loved them since.....but honestly maybe lost track. When I saw this release on iTunes, it was with a lot of hesitation that I listened to it.....just hoping they would not be an old band reuniting for money and putting out something cringingly embarrassing. Well all doubts and worries were totally needless. Red Barked Tree made me one of the happiest men on the planet. This is a piece of work my friends. I really ....I mean REALLY love it. I am so grateful that bands like this can continue to create so refreshingly. I'd call this a masterpiece.....but it's only a few weeks old. But if you've been a long time Wire fan....this is one of those...."BUY WITHOUT HESITATION" listenings. Do it NOW!

Thanks Wire!!

Wire emerged out of the British punk explosion but, from the outset and decades after, maintained a distance from that scene and resisted easy categorization. While punk rapidly became a caricature of itself, Wire's musical identity — focused on experimentation and process — was constantly metamorphosing. Their first three albums alone attest to a startling evolution as the band repeatedly reinvented itself between 1977 and 1979. That capacity for self-reinvention, coupled with a willingness...
