More experimental and introspective than Kilimanjaro, the Teardrop Explodes’ second album, Wilder, was issued late in 1981. It again peaked inside the UK Top 30 and went silver and while it received a mixed critical reception, the record’s critical standing has since grown considerably. Its tracklist features two further minor hits, ‘Colours Fly Away’ and ‘Tiny Children’ as well as confirmed fan favourites such as ‘The Culture Bunker’, ‘Like Leila Khaled Said’ and ‘The Great Dominions’.
