The Meadowlands (album). When recording had started in 1999, the Wrens had originally agreed to release the new album on Drive-Thru Records owned by Richard and Stephanie Reines, friends of the band. However, by the time the album was ready the group decided that it did not fit with the typical sound of the bands on the Drive-Thru label and instead opted to release it on Absolutely Kosher Records, run by another friend of theirs, Cory Brown. The album was eventually released in the UK and Europe two years later by LO-MAX Records

The Wrens' "The Meadowlands" comes very close to being a classic, as chances are that you'll love it. The only problem here is that singer Charles Bissell is not that likable (I can see a lot of people not liking him too much). He does a good enough job, but if he were more likable then the album would benefit much better as a whole. The lyrics tend to be pretty forgettable and hard to hear, though at times they can be interesting. Musically the production is great and the band sounds like a lo-fi-ish indie rock band with a little alternative and punk thrown in.

The Wrens' third album, The Meadowlands, is a sprawling, shifting affair, perhaps reflecting the fact that it took four years to create.

The House That Guilt Built. This Boy Is Exhausted. Faster Gun. Thirteen Grand. Everyone Choose Sides. 13 Months In 6 Minutes. This Is Not What You Had Planned. MusicBrainz: The Meadowlands.

The album’s message doesn’t change and offers no solution, which The Wrens never promised they would offer to begin with; nothing gets better when you suffer like this: The Dirt, only the tinged minds know. Come to The Meadowlands as you are already in it, then, for fucked up albums that shouldn’t work yet stubbornly do, on this kind of level anyway, come few and far in between, probably once every fifteen years, at least by my count. Bring a drink or two with you, or maybe eight. I’ll be sure to meet you there because, after all, misery loves company.
