No Wow is the second studio album by Anglo American rock duo The Kills, originally released in February 2005 via Domino.

The Kills are an English-American rock duo formed in 2001 by American singer Alison "VV" Mosshart and English guitarist Jamie "Hotel" Hince.

On their seminal second album No Wow, The Kills established the ethos that would set the tone for their expansive career - capture the rawest emotions and sounds, and then push them to the furthest possible edge.

No Wow won immediate acclaim for its naked, scuzzy energy. The album’s stormy fusion of darkness and the dancefloor was reflected in songs like “Love Is a Deserter” (“You got one eye as white as a bride / The other eye, as black as the devil”), and tracks like “The Good Ones” radiated with heat and desperation (“You got to burn down your house, keep your dreaming alive”). And the record’s whirlwind creative timeline only enhanced its fiery pitch. “That expedited process lends No Wow a raw immediacy that fits the band's tempestuousness and sexual tension,” raved Pitchfork.

The Kills proved to be something more than just another one of the garage rock bands in vogue at the time, something more grave, glamorous and consequential. The New York Times praised No Wow as “a raw slab of bluesy-punk shot through with nihilism and dysfunctional sex,” and AV Club, in the ominous tone that would characterize reviews of The Kills for years to come, wrote “The message is clear: With some kinds of love, nobody gets out alive.”

The band is celebrating No Wow’s 15th Anniversary with a deluxe reissue featuring two LPs - the original recording and a fresh new mix by the multiple Grammy Award-winning Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Fiona Apple, Arctic Monkeys) that brings new life to the 11 vivid tracks.

This album is a 15th Anniversary limited edition on gold coloured vinyl featuring the 2022 remix by Tchad Blake, housed in a single pocket sleeve with gold foil and a four page booklet, pressed in Europe via Domino.
