Wars of the Roses is the eighth studio album by the Norwegianexperimental band Ulver. The album entered the Norwegian national album charts at number 17. This position was based on sales from one day alone, as the Norwegian distributor did not get the album out to shops before Friday April 15, 2011. It held up for two subsequent weeks. It also entered the Finnish national album charts at number 30 where it held up for one week.
The album received high praise from Sea of Tranquility webzine. Commented reviewer Murat Batmaz: "it amalgamates musical traits from its predecessors while re-shaping them with a more direct approach."
Prog Sphere reviewer Conor Fynes writes: "it's certainly an album that grows with each listen; after all, hasn't the music of Ulver always been one to play hard-to-get?"
