Red Barked Tree is the twelfth studio album by the English post-punk band Wire, digitally released on 20 December 2010, and as a CD on 10 January 2011. Featuring eleven tracks covering a diverse range of musical styles, the record was well received by critics, who found the record representing the "essence of their best work", covering "virtually all aspects of Wire's varied history" to create "a stylistic best-of composed of new material".

Red Barked Tree" sounds more like a Colin Newman solo record than something Wire would put out, he's their front-man by the way. This isn't a good sign, then again there are enough moments on here to salvage what would otherwise be a rather indulgent exercise in monotony. Another superb album from one of my favourite bands of all time. It is covered in small dents, it crackles, and, most disappointingly of all, just sounds plain awful.

Red Barked Tree is a shrewdly sequenced album, and it has to be, given that its impulsive stylistic shifts- from mechanized thrash to psychedelic folk to nervy power-pop- mirror the "age of fragmentation" that Colin Newman is railing against. But its 11 songs are more or less positioned along a logical arc, where a sense of ominous unease gives way to violent release before simmering into a peaceful comedown. With their 2002 Read & Burn EP series, Wire already proved that a band of fiftysomethings could handily out-thrash all of Williamsburg, and on Red Barked Tree, that hot-blooded energy is still in bountiful, if more rationed, supply.

How did Red Barked Tree come about? I came to the conclusion I needed to write some songs. I strummed away on an acoustic guitar – it allows the band to interface directly with the creation at its most naked. The world doesn’t need a substandard Wire album. Interview: john robinson.

Red Barked Tree is Wire's twelfth studio album and was released on 10 January 2011in the UK on Pink Flag.

No, instead, "Red Bark Tree" manages to be an album that is unengaging on several different levels. Wire has failed deliver us anything resembling intelligent punk, engaging psychedelia, or beautiful dream pop and have instead decided to let out one long, bored "sigh" expressed in harmonious fashion alongside the bored sighs of whomever is listening to this album. Happy birthday to me, I guess. tosses handful of confetti, blows out the single candle in my cupcake.

It makes me feel better to know my copy of Red Barked Trees is shitty like all the rest. Mine isn't so bad, but the last song on the first side is really irritating.

Bought a copy of the vinyl on release date that has the mentioned problems, bought another copy today, sounds fine.

Just spoke to someone at Wire's merchant store who clarified that the Res Barked Tree vinyl has been re manufactured. I'm not willing to test the waters though.

Another superb album from one of my favourite bands of all time. However, I strongly urge all NOT TO BUY THIS RELEASE ON VINYL. It is covered in small dents, it crackles, and, most disappointingly of all, just sounds plain awful. Suggestive of a cheaply-done pressing. A friend bought it on CD, however, and it sounds great, so I advise going with that.

I just sent the folks @ PinkFlag a note inquiring if there has been a repress.
