ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"Tommy Harrington first absolves, then annihilates, the contemporary rock and roll mold on The Wanted\'s latest album, Failure Looks So Good—which is to say, the sassy edge he employs serves less to catapult The Wanteds\' sound into retro-rock rehash, and more into a sonically superior modern rock epic.\" - The Portland Mercury (Ryan J. Prado)

\"With lines like, “You lose, ’cause failure looks so good on you,” Harrington spins a generational lament into a melodic burst of crunchy, pounding guitar-rock sing-along.\" - Willamette Week (Jay Horton)

\"I dissected the entire record in one sitting, all the while trying to place my finger on what exactly makes these guys so different from every other Rock driven Indie band out there right now. Oddly enough, I came up empty-handed. However, even more oddly enough, there is something about this band that makes them unique and gives them a very interesting sound in a very good way.\" - Your Music Magazine (Maxwell Barna)

\"The Wanteds pull off the hooks where necessary. “365\" debates a dating relationship with one of the best choruses that trumps whatever the semi-major indie labels are pushing out the door and onto the radio these days. The rest is crammed with impressive rocks songs that have found a way to twist the not so distant past into modern again.\" - Wonka Vision (Josh Spilker)

\"For followers of the Northwest music scene, past and present, the album should be both fresh and familiar, with a modern indie attitude and 90s alt-rock guitar riffs that are a real blast from the past. The Wanteds have taken the best parts of Portland\'s rock heritage and created a sincere, heartfelt homage to the music that brought the whole region into the spotlight of the greater music scene.\" - MusicReviewer.Com (Will Thomas)
