Number One Cup's second album, Wrecked By Lions, finds the Chicago quartet following the same Malkmus-inspired path as their debut, but instead of breaking free of the Pavement and Sebadoh influences that marked their first album, they seem to be overwhelmed by them. Occasionally, the group can turn out a fractured pop gem, but too often they get by on scratchy guitars and ramshackle rhythms instead of actual songs, which ultimately makes the album quite frustrating. It's possible to hear the group's potential beneath the noise and influences, but the group needs to develop their own sound before they'll reach their goal.
