Mind Hive is a very basic punk album, that came from punk legends, Wire. There aren't many interesting melodies, or catchy choruses, that make even the more modern Wire albums fun. I admire that classic punk bands are still fairly consistently releasing new music, but let's be honest; Wire isn't going to make another Pink Flag. I'm glad they still enjoy studio recordings, but albums like Mind Hive aren't helping the Wire legacy.

The unenthusiastic songwriting and flat instrumentation come together to create a very bloated album.

It is just a mixed bag for me. I did enjoy half of the tracks here but I don't care for the other half but I respect Wire for keep releasing albums and not really falling off too hard.

This one sounds pretty bad. Like those guys listened too much of new, not much better, Killing Joke - post-punk with industrial rock sounding. Additionaly, no melodies, no catchiness, no feistness, no anything tbh. Just old men play rock.
