The Hoax is the sophomore album from Wild Animals on Barcelona based indie label BCore Disc. The ten tracks have a heavy retro alt-rock sound drawing from bands such as Panic At The Disco, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy. The tracks are very derivative, formulaic and radio ready, with a sound that has been heard many times before. The album is solid, well played and well produced. If you like your music usual and commercial, this is the record for you. Stream and buy The Hoax at the link below.
