Highly Suspect - The Boy Who Died Wolf music album review

Music Album Review: Highly Suspect - "The Boy Who Died Wolf" (9/10)

Nearly exceeding sky-high expectations, the second LP from Cape Cod’s Grammy-nominated Highly Suspect might possibly elevate the cacophonous trio from merely notable players into performers of note. Finding equal inspiration in smarty-pants punk, snotty alternative and nihilistic new wave, their vibe occasionally recalls that of Pearl Jam, at others the psychedelic soar of Pink Floyd. They inhabit an easily digestible flavor profile, yet come thick with sophistication and élan. “Wolf,” the disc’s epic finale, registers like a down payment on even better things to come.

Score: 9 out of 10
