Wolf Alice proves that great rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well

London-based rock band Wolf Alice released their third full-length album, Blue Weekend, on June 4th to rave reviews by their fans and by the critics. In fact, as of June 6th, Blue Weekend has the highest composite score on Metacritic thus far in 2021.

Having heard several excellent tracks from the album prior to its formal release, I was awestruck by the strength, variety, and beauty of the entire album from start to finish. It can be truly said that every track is worthy of release as a single. Here’s a live version “How Can I Make it OK?” from Blue Weekend.

And of “The Last Man on Earth”

I know it is tough to make direct comparisons, by I personally believe that Blue Weekend could stack up favorably to many, if not most rock classics including Rumours, The Cars, Breakfast in America, Weezer’s Blue Album, Toys in the Attic, Hotel California, The Joshua Tree, and many others.

Each of the four bandmates (Ellie Rowsell, Joel Amey, Joff Oddie, and Theo Ellis) that compose Wolf Alice contributed mightily to this remarkable album, though it must be noted that Ellie’s voice and range are utterly spectacular. Furthermore, the lyrics and instrumental performances by the band throughout are magnificent. Kudos, kudos, kudos!
