The album artwork reminds me of Life of Pi.

These are just not strong songs. I'm fine with the direction, but they didn't pull it off

Loving this album.

Incredibly solid album from start to finish. A great follow-up in my opinion.

I really dig the first half of this when they come up with some great riffs and really sound like an alt rock band from the 1990s. The 2nd half is less alluring for me.

gets better in the second half, the leopard and the lung is great, but overall this was pretty underwhelming.

Following excellent debut LP 'The Big Roar', Welsh alt-rockers The Joy Formidable look to build upon their arena-rock aesthetic with 2nd LP 'Wolf's Law'. Tighter - and more accessible - than the debut, this album isn't necessarily better off for that fact, with the band's ambition not always honed appropriately. Some string arrangements add value & the trio somehow pull off the bombastic Muse-like ridiculousness of 'Maw Maw Song', but a few too many tracks float on by satisfyingly without leaving any great imprint. In other words: this is solid , but TJF are capable of much better. Recommended Tracks: This Ladder Is Ours, Maw Maw Song, The Hurdle & Cholla.

Maw Maw is the worst thing this band has ever done! The hook is too damn annoying.
