In any case, if you haven't heard the Show/Paris live albums, I highly recommend them. The Wish material sounds fantastic live and much better than on the album. Plus there's excellent performances of Seventeen Seconds material like Play for Today and In Your House.

As for those post-punk era records, I still consider Pornography to be by far the best album of that era and their best after Disintegration. It's heavier, more macabre and less melancholic than Faith, which all fits perfectly for my taste.

Plus, those albums are cornerstones of post-punk; highly influential and important records within their scene.
Basically this. I think unfocused is an understatement for Wish. Something like Deep Green Sea is among their best ever tracks, but then one track later you get Wendy Time. Tough to make that kind of juxtaposition into sustained enjoyment.

Once Friday I'm in Love and Wendy Time are out of the tracklist, Wish is as consistent for me as any of their best. Plus the b-sides are pretty fucking great too.

All you Deep Green Sea lovers, push that other song out of the way.

It's good, but not great - I don't think it should've even been one of Wish's representatives in the finals. Wish has much better tracks.
