It’s the 21 album for Wenger & The Little Technicians who are seeking to enjoy commercial and critical success again, after their negative reception of their last outing.

21 years is a long time for any band to be together, and although they have had moments of success together, and one classic album in 2004 titled “The Invincibles,” they are currently seen as a band who are past their prime, retaining their core fan base, but never doing enough to top the charts.

With new project "We Are The Arsenal", Wenger and his band provide a masterclass in heartbreak tunes, sad ballads and failed attempts to fly.

Hit tracks such as ‘Always Fourth’, and ‘Europa Nights’ possess a familiar tale of woe. But you could find reassurance and a little brightness seeping through on ‘Contracts.’ ‘I Sead It’ is a bulldozing, experimental muscular piece, while ‘Waiting For Alexis’, with its ups and downs is a hair-pulling, jigsaw of sounds, throwing you into unnerving territory. Frankly, you just want the song to end, so you could be done and over it.

The slow jam "Let me assist you" has bass guitarist, Ozil in his element, as he strums his instrument, and dictates the pace of the project, a rare light in the production. Although he is out of place and out of tune on “Big Nights,” another song with a pop promise. The music is always great, but it ultimately frustrates in its inconsistent theme, bringing whelming unhappiness and regret to all who sign up for a listen.

In the end, you the listener, would ask yourself, “What am I truly getting from this project? Is it worth my time and my money? Should I move on to the new school rock stars?

The answer is personal. Only you can make the decision.
