Northern Transmissions

Though it can be soothing enough to get you too comfortable, it’s an intoxicating listen to say the least.


Still Run shows signs of growth in some areas, but in others, leaves much left to be desired.


Wet fit into the 90s R&B, alternative and lo-fi dream pop categories without remaining in any of them.


The Brooklyn band may have lost a member, but they have not lost their sound. 'Still Run' is their most consistent, but least captivating release yet.


Despite its starpower and self-generated hype, Still Run ends up being something about as adventurous—and nourishing—as a plate of buttered noodles.

No Ripcord

Brooklyn duo Wet fight off the remnants of a dwindling ethereal R&B era on Still Run. Not that there's the possibility of making it sound compelling again, but as the commonplace ten tracks on this album show, it sounds like they're content with competing against the dime-o-dozen artists who are trying to get a fair shot from clueless music executives.

I still cannot fathom how this sits at a 57 critic score... this album is one of the most underrated and I have no clue as to why.
BEST: Still Run, There's a Reason, Lately, Softens, 11 Hours, This Woman Loves You, Visitor
WORST: Out of Tune
Wet’s debut “Don’t You” was hotly anticipated, but seems to have squandered all the hype for the band.

Edit: Formerly 75, this has grown on me a lot.
Faves: Lately, 11 Hours, This Woman Loves You
I looked up the album here after listening for the first time being sure that it would get kind of good reviews. Still Run is an album that starts with great promise but ends up becoming stale in the second half of it.
This hits a little low for me, Wet has obviously never heard the phrase “finish strong”. The final tracks heavily rely on the rest of the album to cary their mediocrity.
Comfortable is synonymous with the ambiance of the instrumentals and lyrics. Wet didn’t take any risks and consequently surrendered all possible rewards. The absence of creativity doesn’t allow anything to differentiate between tracks. Not horrible, but not great.
