Buy: Amazon Wolf Am I is apparently the coming together of members of various bands to start a new 'chapter.' Chapter seems a bit much, changing the bands name and swapping one member for another is more of a new paragraph than a new chapter. Effectively, Lead The Way is Kill The Arcade's posthumous album. It's an impressively powerful affair, as you'd expect coming from the majority of Kill The Arcade but when it's put into context with their probable influences, the likes of Brand New, Manchester Orchestra or At The Drive In, things feel ultimately disappointing. There's no Jesse Lacey growl, no clever descriptive lyrics, but there are driving guitars and Wolf Am I aren't afraid to drop things down to explode out again, like on The Good Life (1975), but things too often get a bit 30 Seconds To Mars. The shouty bits aren't shouty enough, becoming exactly that of 30 STM. A trait that near ruins the cathartic Bon Voyage. That doesn't mean there is nothing good about Wolf Am I, Down At The Golden Cup is a fair chunk of good old power-pop-punk, the downbeat chorus of Lex Talionis and on Lead The Way also show what could have been. It is here where it is most obviously their own sound, and they sounds better for it. They aren't trying to be something they can't, let alone something they're not. The key thing though is the lack of a real anthem, a song that is impossible not to like. Nothing is ultimately memorable and will cement them into your iTunes. The best thing to do is keep listening to Deja Entendu and wait patiently for Brand New's new album to come out instead. 6/10
