As a huge Bastille fan and really loving their first album, Bad Blood, I was concerned that they'd fall into the second album trap were they're unable to top their first (very successful) album, however this wasn't the case. Wild World has a completely different feel to Bad Blood, but still sounds like the classic Bastille that I love. After listening to the album on repeat on Spotify, i decided to buy the physical CD not only to show my support to the band, but I like listening to CDs in the car. I'm giving this album 4 stars, not for the music content but the physical CD itself. I bought this album in hope that it would display song titles while playing in my car, however it doesn't which is annoying (it's 2016, c'mon!). It's a shame, but I'll have to burn my own disc now, which I was hoping to avoid when buying this CD!
Just like All This Bad Blood I'm in love with Bastille. Wild World is such a higher step from the first album, I still love that album but I love this even more. Such a unique sound and Dan's voice is so beautiful. More upbeat songs on this album but a couple of slow beautiful ones too.
Not completely convinced by the voice-over bits on the album - but this is overall a joy to listen to. Listening to this convinced me to go watching them in concert - where the voiceover stuff really did work and the album is now a great reminder of a fantastic Bastille concert. These guys are great live
