Album Review: Fix Yourself, Not the World by The Wombats

Mediocre, Based on 3 Critics

It seems implausible that Liverpool’s The Wombats have been around for nearly 20 years and are now onto their fifth album. Yet not only have they survived, they’ve gone it alone, and thanks to the vagaries of social media and streaming habits, they’ve flourished. Oliver Nelson‘s remix of their 2015 track Greek Tragedy has found a foothold on Tik Tok, which has bought them to the attention of a whole new generation of fans.

No Ripcord - 20
Based on rating 2/10

Landfill indie: a snobbish dismissal of earnest, hard-working indie bands or a perfect description for the charmless, utterly beige guitar music that emerged from Britain in the mid-2000s?

Some of the key protagonists are still earning a living from music today, with Liverpool's The Wombats the latest to emerge from this putrid cesspit with a new release.

Opinion: Excellent

Remarkably, this is The Wombats' 19th year together and possibly their biggest career-wise. The Liverpool band rose to national fame in 2007 with their perky indie hit 'Let's Dance to Joy Division' and have spent years bouncing, bellowing and soul-baring their way to the top ever since. Nearly two decades in, they have managed to do what many bands before them have executed so poorly - perfectly honed in on an eminently catchy version of alternative rock that meets indie-pop.
