Cribs Solidifies Wyldlife as one of the best and most authentic rock and roll bands going. if you're a sucker for hooks, this album has an infinite number of them. The songs are direct and catchy, equally inspired by late-’70s punk like the Ramones, The Boys and The Real Kids, and the polish of 2000s Brit-rock like The Vines, along with New York’s finest The Strokes. Favorite track: Kiss and Tell.

FOUR COUNTS OF LARCENY YOU KNOW WE’VE STOLEN EVERYTHING THAT WE NEED THE WAY WE WEAR OUR HAIR, THE WAY WE HIT THE SNARE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN A FEW MOVING VIOLATIONS ALRIGHT, IT WAS G.T.A. BUT WE DON’T ALWAYS DRIVE IT AS FAST AS WE CAN JUST CRUISING DOWN THE WRONG ONE WAY AND IF YOU WANNA GO OUT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FUN TO DO JUST LOOK OUT FOR THE BOYS IN BLUE THEY MIGHT BE COMING AFTER YOU… AND YOU CAN TAKE IT FROM ME: IT’S THE CRIME OF THE SCENE ONE CHARGE OF DISTURBING THE PEACE (THAT ONE WAS NEVER PLANNED) AND THE DISORDERLY CONDUCT? THAT WAS JUST DUMB LUCK ASK ANY OF THE OTHER BOYS IN THE BAND AND ALL THE CHARGES OF BRIBING OFFICIALS THE BIGGEST ONES WE COULD FACE BUT IF YOU WANNA GET PLAYED ON THE RADIO WAVES MOVE OVER, PAYOLA, AND GIVE ‘EM A TASTE BUT IF YOU WANNA GO OUT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FUN TO DO JUST LOOK OUT FOR THE BOYS IN BLUE THEY MIGHT BE COMING AFTER YOU… AND YOU CAN TAKE IT FROM ME: IT’S THE CRIME OF THE SCENE YOU GOT CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE I NEED A WITNESS… ALL YOU GOT IS CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE I NEED A WITNESS…
