In 2002 Wire returned after over a decade of dormancy and once again they have changed their musical focus. They had largely dropped the emphasis on dance-floor beats and synths and returned to a song writing style that is not unlike the punk rock of Pink Flag. It's a less minimal, solid-state version of 1977 Wire with a touch of their 80's synths dribbled in here and there. Some would say it's a return to form, but I never though Wire ever really "lost it."
