This album after one listen was not bad. However, for the rest of the day i had random lines from the songs in my head and had to have another fix, straight after work. I am currently sitting at my desk, screaming out the irresistably desperate vocals whilst putting the air drums through the beating of their life! Need i say more..... Anywhere iv played this album people wanna know who it is. Get it and luve it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Let The Maccabes colour in your world 22 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a great slice of Indie rock, with a heavy dollop of pop thrown in for good measure "Colour It In" is one of the better albums of the month, and possibly the year.

There are many sparkling gems to be found on this record, this is worth buying alone for "About Your Dress" "All in Your Rows" and "First Love"

All of which were the singles, as the vast majority of you would be well aware of but the rest of the play list is just a good as those three singles.

This is a record that is great to listen to on the CD version, but this will take on another dimension live, one to check out at this years up and coming summer festivals.

The production on this one is second to none, all of the record are well put together, but are not so over produced that all the soul has been sucked out the songs, which has happened on so many records.

All the songs on this record are filled to the brim with youthful energy, extremely distinctive vocals and great lyrics.

I really think that this is a band to watch for the future, as think that as the years go on they will only become a greater force to be reckoned with.

Defiantly a band that is defiantly worth the entire buzz that they have been picking up prior to the release of this debut effort.

The songs gallop along like a pack of pedigree stallions running at ascot, this is a cracking debut effort.

So far this has to be my favourite album so far of 2007, energy in abundance with such a cool sound how can you go wrong! If you don't know, get to know, because you are missing out big time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Put away the crayons and grab the headphones. 21 May 2007
By David
Format:Audio CD
Very good debut that grows on you more and more.The sound quality however is something else entirely.Compared to my other cd`s this album sounds like it`s a super audio cd (SACD) when of course it isn`t. Just goes to show what can be achieved with humble old cd if the effort is made.Even if I didnt like the songs I would still listen to it, especially on headphones, for the sound alone.

The fact that I love the songs too makes this album all the more complete.

Best musical purchase I`ve made for a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great debut from Brighton's finest. 20 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wearing a quintessentially English sound like a brand new pair of Dr. Martens, 'Colour it in' speaks of days gone by; a mid-20s crisis overcome by Indie coated staccato riffs and heartfelt lyrics adrift.

This band will one day lay alongside some of the classic British bands of our time (the Clash, the Kinks, the Cure) and firmly within the mindset of the 'myspace generation', to whom they are somewhat indebted.

This album will provide Sunday afternoon sing-alongs and Monday morning mime-alongs, it will bring a smile to your face, make you dance around your room and long to be sixteen again.

Yes this album has been much talked about and for the right reasons. It has the makings of a classic debut .

Bag your self a copy sharpish I say!

5.0 out of 5 stars speechless 12 April 2013
By Chloe
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't think it was possible to connect so much with an album, with songs that you didn't write yourself. This album got on such a personal in-depth level. What a performance, if you haven't had a listen already I highly suggest doing so, what are you waiting for? this album has got me through the last three months.
Beautiful, just beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars An album 17 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
So, how do you try to convince a buyer on amazon to buy this album?
Well the truth is I can't. If you walk through HMV one day and hear one of their songs you'll be hooked.
If you're in the car one day and one of their songs comes on the radio you'll be hooked.
If your feet start to tap for no good reason the chances are it's the Maccabees,
and chances are it's this album.
The truth is I've got a beat for a spine and this album makes my feet and ears stand to attention.
I'm sure if Lennon were here he'd be in HMV, tapping his radio with his feet and scalp.
If you're still not sure, give each song a few plays because after all,
the songs we love the most are those we know the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars indie memories 20 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
I had listened to this album before purchasing it and never really listened to the lyrics. The lyrics are a bit random and don't always make sense but I like that light-hearted feel it brings. The songs remind me of an indie nightclub I used to go to and just makes me want to dance.
Since I had listened this album before, when it got to 'First Love' I noticed it was a different version, slightly slower and softer. There's also another song little at the end of the track. I was a bit disappointed at first as it wasn't the version I knew, but this one has grown on me now.
I'm going to see the Maccabees next week and I can't wait. They are definitely worth a listen.
