Ever since he rescued his lackluster solo career with the incendiary Melting in the Dark in 1996, his albums have been tough, smart, funny, and above full of living, fire-breathing soul. Static Transmission is 50 minutes of lean and nasty rock & roll with loud guitars, gritty lyrics, and a bleeding heart.

It is a strong record from beginning to end but some of the songs rank among Wynn's best to date:"Candy Machine"'s atonal live wire guitars are reminiscent of Dream Syndicate, and his words are biting and funny "A Fond Farewell" is a loping, jagged ballad with an evil-sounding vocal and some lovely bells and "California Style" is a classic single with a killer chorus a
