Give me a break. The idea that Wilderness could somehow be responsible for the resurgence of emotive rock -- that this Baltimore quartet could somehow resurrect every sincere art-house band from London to L.A., as some critics have claimed -- is patently ridiculous.

Their review was very positive

Baltimore’s Wilderness are one the few bands today that manage to transcend the sum of their influences to create something genuinely new and fresh. Their slyly original sound is at once cryptic and deceptively simple, referencing myriad sources, yet defying easy categorization. Retro without the scent of necrophilia, Wilderness approaches their influences from oblique angles, splicing post-rock precision with emo drama, and channeling the icy post-punk desolation of bands like Comsat Angels, Felt and In Camera.
