With arranged and beautiful harmonies, that give rise to wonderfully captivating saxophone introspections, as well as splendorous and insurgent guitar solos, Porno Wolves really has made a curious, elegant and sophisticated album. With soul and meaning, their art is full of abrasive and delicate nuances, that exhibit passionate melodies, able to achieve the high standards they obviously imposed over them. With an obvious attention to technical detail, they also excel in the aspect of a clean and distinct sound, that masterfully perfected the marvelous definition of their music.
Despite a great collection of overwhelming qualities, the album gets far from being qualified as a masterpiece. With a sound that sometimes sounds vague, with excessively similar and uniform passages, their creative capacities sometimes appears to be stagnant in a formulaic zone of musical process.
Nevertheless, Renegades is definitely a good album, and Porno Wolves is a group that has originality. With potential, formidable writing skills, and a pungent musical style, they remember a little wild, decadent, melancholic, but brave midnight pubs and nightclub bands, that you don’t expect too much when you see them onstage, until they started to play. Then, you see things differently.
