Consequence of Sound

Supergroups rarely have any business sounding this good.

A.V. Club

Considering the personnel involved, it’s no surprise Wild Flag works as well as it does, or that it picks up in a familiar place.

Beats Per Minute

They’re not reinventing the wheel, hell they’re barely even reinventing themselves, but that’s a good thing on this occasion


The band rarely sacrifices the rock'n'roll fun-- they no doubt deliver that elusive black-and-blue, but it's a hit that feels like a kiss.

No Ripcord

It’s then both entirely strange and equally unsurprising that Wild Flag feels nothing like a typical first record.

Drowned in Sound

Whether you come to this album fresh, or as a former fan of some other bands the members used to be in, Wild Flag offers a lot to the listener.


What we have here is an album leaner than a quality steak and with enough sass and bravado to make the likes of Joan Jett and Kate Jackson look like submissive wallflower housewife types.

Purchasing Wild Flag from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
