Album Review The Wonder Years - Sister Cities

The Wonder Years - Sister Cities

A renewed example of just how powerful and poignant The Wonder Years can be.

Rating:

For the better part of the last decade, The Wonder Years have become experts in offering up lyrically astute, meaningful pop-inflected rock. With their latest effort - and sixth record to boot - they continue that trend, with frontman Dan ‘Soupy’ Campbell once again painting excruciatingly detailed pictures of life’s challenges, frustrations and connections. Building upon the darker foundations of 2015’s ‘No Closer To Heaven’. ‘Sister Cities’ again sees their more musically heavy side flourish – the likes of ‘Raining In Kyoto’ and ‘We Look Like Lightning’ bursting into kinetic life - only to be occasionally punctuated with more delicate, intricate moments like ‘Flowers Where Your Face Should Be’. Offering up another soundtrack for the disenfranchised and downtrodden, ‘Sister Cities’ is a renewed example of just how powerful and poignant The Wonder Years can be.
