iTunes Review

The taut indie-pop specialists grow bigger and better by embracing patience and darkness. If itchy energy was a key strength of debut album Colour It In, this follow-up doesn’t suffer by being more polished and considered. “Seventeen Hands” and “Love You Better” still have some ants in their pants but the centrepiece is brooding ode to a troubled friend “No Kind Words”, which absorbs with its pervading air that bad things are around the corner.

Great Album - Pointless Re-release

This is a fantastic album, they moved on from their first album but not so much as to loose their charm. The stand-out tracks to me are 'Love you better', 'One hand holding' and 'No knid words'. From the additional tracks i think 'Hearts that strangle' is beautiful and 'Empty Vessels' is a decent track but there really was no point in releasing the album again seeing as all the tracks except 'I drove all night' are available all ready! Doesn't stop it being one the best albums of 2009/10 and i hope they do well whenever they decide to release some new material! Peace x

Fantastic album for new fans. Useless for Old fans.

I love this album, its so much better than colour it in, but i think it would have been better if they'd released the new tracks as an EP, i only got this album at christmas, and to find out that its been re-released 5 weeks later is nothing short of frustrating. Im sure lots of other people will feel the same way, BUT, if you havent brought Wall Of Arms already, nows the time is do so, as the new tracks are very good, but i dont want to buy this again just for a couple of new songs, i wish they'd let people buy the documentary seperately though, i'd love to watch that.

Thank you for doing over the fans you already have

They did it to me with Colour It In (although of course I know I won't be the only one) and with the current album, you try to support a band you like and think deserves the support and then a bloody new version comes out not really that long afterwards! I already bought all the B-sides on top of pre-ordering the album and then this comes along alot cheaper, and I wouldn't mind the videos but I'm not buying it again it's taking liberties! Great album, but I'm well annoyed

Hailing from South London, kinetic indie rockers the Maccabees formed in 2004 around vocalist Orlando Weeks, guitarists Hugo and Felix White, bassist Rupert Jarvis, and drummer Robert Dylan Thomas.
