The Wildhearts – Renaissance Men

I put British rockers The Wildhearts in the file “bands I like but probably shouldn’t”. See, I’m not into Punk much at all and The Wildhearts’ simple, in-your-face, clearly Punk influenced Hard Rock isn’t something I usually get into. But I have always had a weak spot for this band even though they’ve never been a favorite band. The biggest reason for me liking the band is because of guitarist/lead vocalist Ginger’s amazing ability to write memorable melodies and catchy choruses that sticks big-time. Fact is, at times, I think the guy is a damn melody-genius, a master of uncheesy poppiness. For example, Ginger was very much behind Sensory Overdrive (2011) being Michael Monroe’s best solo album. But I must state that The Wildhearts’ albums has always been somewhat uneven. When Ginger’s Punk genes and love for hard-core Hard Rock meets Metal takes over, I’m not really there.
