wire: change becomes us

Change Becomes Us reimagines the past in ways that ultimately break any substantive connection with it, making entirely new pieces -- and these songs themselves enact Wire's restless drive to become other, often thriving on a fundamental tension between opposing sonic characteristics. With its stop-start, soft-hard, quiet-loud structure, 'Adore Your Island' veers between prog and unhinged punk rock, never quite resolving itself; the drama of 'Attractive Space' hinges on a progressive splitting of the song's personality, between its calm, expansive, anthemic orientation and an increasing sense of intensity and claustrophobia. 'Change Becomes Us' encapsulates the paradoxical essence of Wire's creativity.
