#reviewoftheweek / Wild Belle - Dreamland

After wowing the masses with their critically acclaimed debut album, Wild Belle have returned with a new collection that tries to top the original. It is equally as good, but goes in a different direction than the original. While the first album was full of sunshine and reggae, this album uses both of those as influences on a heavily produced indie and alternative rock sound. "Throw Down Your Guns" and "Giving Up On You" are the album standouts. But, on songs like the lead track "Mississippi River" they show off their songwriting in combination with their killer unique sound. Wild Belle is an exciting band, and this album shows they aren't just a one trick pony.
