Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the debut album from one of the most talked about UK bands in the last decade. The album was recorded live in a disused church in Manchester and mastered in Glasgow by Paul Savage (Mogwai), the result of which is 10 tracks of huge uncompromising Heavy Pop.

Customer Reviews

This is a good thing, however.
PuroShaggy
I recommend this product, not only for the great vinyl format, but the great music that this band performed.

Absolutely raw, emotional, haunting, blunt, unspoiled by any of the cliches of current pop or rock music.

One of the most exhilarating debut albums in a long time, WU LYF's "Go Tell Fire to the Mountain" bounces around in this weird musical melting pot where TV on the Radio joins forces with Animal Collective to jam in an empty grain silo with My Morning Jacket. Throw some Flaming Lips randomness in the mix and several bona-fide ear catching melodies, and its one of the most exciting albums to be heard in years.
Maybe I'm overreacting but I love everything about the album. The lead singer half sings, half screams and a lot of the lyrics I am not sure I comprehend, but I don't care. The energy and passion in every wailed note is pure rock 'n' roll (in a cathartic way), exalting the same powerful emotion whether loving you forever or spitting blood. The drums are huge, the guitars chime and then attack and then take off in solos, and then, when you least expect it, the piano takes over and the mood is nice and chill...for awhile.
It sounds raw, so be prepared. Organs battle for space with drums while the bass tries to hold it down underneath, and at times, everything seems to blend together into one cacophonous din. This is a good thing, however. This album is about spirit, energy, playing with emotion and letting the music take over and just happen.
Sorry if I made it sound too hippie. BUT I LOVE THIS ALBUM!

this band has a fresh style and sound the music is very dream like and the vocals remind me of scorn. fans of post rock disco inferno hood main and other bands like bark pychosis will find alot to like on this great cd. agreat mixture of vocals and music that makes for a real nice listen. im 56 years old and have loved music my whole life, avant garde post rock you name it. this music is for those who enjoy a new and different sound. great stuff.

WU LYF is probably the best band that I have heard in over a decade. They are amazing live as well. Recording in an abandoned church, this album is both beautiful and angry. All around just so full of life and worth checking out.

What does that even mean, WU LYF? Appaently it stands for the "Lucifer Youth Foundation". Well 3 of the songs on this album are pretty awesome, with the rest being average to above average. Those top three for me being "Summas Bliss", "We bros", and the amazing, "Spitting Blood!" This album reminded me of a cross between "Man Man" and a bit of "Explosion in the Sky". WU LYF definatly brings something new to the table, with raunchy punk rock like vocals followed by melodic-soft riffs to compliment the raucous lyrics. In the end the few power songs on the album make up for the weaker ones. For any indie lover out there this just might be the new sound you've been waiting for.

8/10

This is life affirming music at its best; the kind that cuts through your skin and bone to reach a little deeper to that place called soul.

Awesome, buy it up for sure. All parts are amazing and will grow on you as you continue to listen to the album, you will... Sometimes you wish you could make out the words a little stronger, sometimes you're glad you can't as they add so much to the song. super unique album while keeping to good music. peace

These guys have restored my faith in the word 'unique'. They have intelligence, integrity, high musical skills, they are markedly individual and still perform perfectly as a unit. I know they'll wait 'as long as it takes' with their follow-up, and say praise for a group who's main concern isn't the fast buck. They will get far.

Every once in a while a group comes out that is so different and powerful that they stop you in your tracks. This is one of them. The first time I heard songs from this album on the radio I thought it was Clash outtakes circa 1977. These songs sound like bootleg Clash songs recorded in a cave with primitive sound equipment. Absolutely raw, emotional, haunting, blunt, unspoiled by any of the cliches of current pop or rock music. It sounds like an Irish wake, absolutely raw emotion poured out in a way that bypasses the brain and goes straight to the heart.

This is not polished formulaic music and most people probably will not understand or like it. Classic.
