I Killed The Zeitgeist Review - The Irish Times - ★★☆☆☆

From MSPpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Wire is the second member of Manic Street Preachers to release a solo album in the space of two months. Poor man, he really should have waited longer to put this out, as I Killed the Zeitgeist pales in comparison with friend and colleague James Dean Bradfield's The Great Western. This record has neither the tunes, the vision nor the scope. What it does have is a scuzzy, gritty charm, several spoken word intros that encapsulate Wire's chosen worldviews, and a few decent songs. We're left, then, with the feeling that his noodlings are just that: scratchy, idle thoughts without much ambition behind them. He'd be advised not to give up the day job just yet. Tony Clayton-Lea
