Editorial Reviews

...This Modern Glitch finds The Wombats' lyrics developing a depth and personal confessional slant that's rare in modern songwriting, but fans of their more story-based writing will find much to enjoy in the synth-rock, disco-destroying brilliance.

I've seen The Wombats in concert twice since first hearing this album and the songs sound even better live.

The Wombats have come up with one of the most fun and catchy records of the year so far, yet the songs are very honest and confessional. In that way, they remind me of The Smiths, a rather high honor in my mind. I find the songwriting to be suprisingly deep and brilliantly written, clearly not a trait you see you every fun, upbeat band. What makes it even better, is how massive the sound becomes (especially in "Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)"). I also love how Indie pop/rock and New Wave influences come together so fluidly. I could list so many other things I enjoy about this record, but I'll just say buy it (or at least give it a listen).

These guys rock! I don't skip a single song. Their sound is very driving, rock, with a bit of a electronic. Extremely clean production, very pleasing to the ear. The vocals are unique and smooth, along with thoughtful lyrics. I really can't say enough good things about these guys.
While songs like "Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)", "Techno Fan" and "1996" grabbed my attention at first, I couldn't get enough of the entire album and sound. Probably the best album I've heard in 15 years, or ever.

.....sorry to be late to the party, but better late than styoopid.....don't know how i missed this band until recently, but the Wombats are now my absolute favourite marsupials!!.....Murph, Tord and Dan make a giant sound for just 3 guys and it hits on all cylinders (songwriting, vocals, great musicianship, you name it).....top tracks for me include "Perfect Disease" and "Schumacher" as well as the engaging lyrical twists and storming guitars of "Last Night I Dreamt".......they've had some tutelage from Sir Paul and been schoolmates together, so the tightness of the band shines through in all the fun they're having with the music......a Wombats stage show is one big happy BASH, so definitely don't miss them in concert!.....i can absolutely see these guys pushing onward into all new territory with every album, because they just know what they're doing.

The deluxe edition with videos is well worth it.

Standout tracks:
our perfect disease
1996
techno fan
walking disasters
anti D (acoustic version video)
tokyo (acoustic version video)

Other singles (that should have been on 'this modern glitch')
how I miss sally bray
valentine (on the deluxe edition)
avalanche

These songs are clever and facinating. You can listen to them in a playlist a few times a day and never get bored

I had never heard of The Wombats until about two days ago when they happened to play them on my favorite radio station. I heard "Jump Into the Fog" and was instantly in love with the tune. I couldn't get the darn thing out of my head! In a time when there is very little music that impresses me I know that when something grabs me it is no small feet.

I immediately looked into The Wombats and found they had at least two other CDs, and I wondered why I'd never heard them before. After checking out their older efforts I knew immediately why. None of that stuff compared to "Jump Into the Fog". It was far to close to the techno side for my tastes. But after listening to "This Modern Glitch" it was clear that this was the release that had, or would, put The Wombats on the map.

My favorites are Tokyo with it's fast dance club beat, Jump Into the Fog (great lyrics, I love this song!), and 1969 which is very ironic as these guys sing about going back to their teenage days in the 90's when everything was wonderful, and yet their music takes me back to my teenage years in the 80's when everything was wonderful. They remind me so much of all the great New Wave groups that we would listen to back then. I still think that is some of the best music ever crafted and it's great to see that there are still bands keeping the sound alive in a time when so much of the music that is being cranked out is total crap.

I would gladly give this 5 stars except for a few songs that just didn't quite do it for me. Mainly "Girls/Fast Cars" and " Schumacher the Champagne" although they too are beginning to really grow on me the more I listen. This album is truly a bright shining star in a sea of black holes. Check it out!!

I saw the Wombats live before knowing anything about them besides that they are British. They played three really catchy songs that stayed stuck in my head after the concert: 1996 and Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves), and Perfect Disease. All three are on this album and in my opinion, the CD's best tracks. The Wombats are really good at coming up with catchy tunes and lyrics. Most of the songs have an infectious chorus (listen to the above listed songs, and Girls/Fast Cars, for example). Vocalist Matthew Murphy has an intriguing and very pronounced Liverpudlian accent and his songs are lyrically complex, melancholic, self-deprecating and often-times nerdy. How many songs do you hear referencing "Freudian slip" (on Walking Disasters)? Jump into the fog is equally nerdy:

What a great achievement it was / To get a hotel room this late
I bet they charge by the hour here / The kind of place where you should bring your own UV ray

It's not a big problem with me love / You don't look that hygienic anyway
I'm only here because / I want to twist the structure of my average day

Schumacher The Champagne is a very forgettable song that doesn't ring any bells for me and I don't love Last Night I Dreamt... but aside from these two tracks, the rest of the album is varied and excellent.
