Well, what can I say? I thought that Our Earthly Pleasures was a great album, but this beats it hands down.
As soon as I saw the box i was in love with it, some wallet CD holders can look cheap and tacky in my opinion, but this just looked majestic.
The songs are also truely terrific and after only having it for a matter of hours I have allready got some of them in my head. After listening to OEP for the past two years I think I may just have an album that can compete.
I would recomend this to any indy fan, and it should be a definate purchase for any maximo park fans out there.

Maximo Park, they're back baby!

After what seems like an eternity, Maximo return with their 3rd long-player. Whilst their feet have hardly touched the ground taking the Maximo sound around the world, the boys have still created an album bristling with boundless energy, and at times unbridled emotion, with of course an obligatory nod to their hometown.
I have been fortunate enough to have heard the whole album, and Maximo have definitely carved their own sound from the tree of music history, at times sounding like an early Japan, with post-punk energy and infusion of early 80s electro, with intelligent lyrics floating effortlessly like the Shields ferry.
It is unique that an album can not only be instantly enjoyed, but continue to improve with each listen - and it's a grower, why can't we take things slower!
If you do get to see them live this year it will probably be the gig of the year for you. I think I caught them 5 times promoting the last record, and the last one being shared on the additional DVD with this release, I hope I see myself jumping around like a box of frogs to Limassol!
Anyhoo.. buy it, enjoy it, you will still be playing it in 6 months.
