A criminally underrated album on these charts! I know that Los Angeles is a better album but I’ve always connected better with Wild Gift.

Favorites: Adult Books, Once Over Twice, White Girl, We’re Desperate, Universal Corner

13 songs in a half-hour and not a bad one in the bunch. This album is ridiculously good and it never flags, not even after a million listens.

A definite nominee as one of the most seriously overlooked albums on this site. Wild Gift is a monster!
