5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 70s rock. 22 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
I first got into Max Webster when they supported Rush back in about 1979 and bought up all their back catalogue. Almost 30 years on, they remain one of my favourite bands. Their lead singer/guitarist Kim Mitchell has also gone on to produce a wealth of great solo material over the years.
Anyway, HCIBS is their second album and chock-full of the great musicianship and quirky, proggy but accessible rock that existed quite happily in the 70s but such an individualistic approach wouldn't be allowed these days. HCIBS contains some of their more well-known (amongst us cognoscenti) songs such as the title track, 'Gravity' and the gorgeous 'Diamonds,Diamonds' as well as some less well-known gems like 'Oh War' and 'In Context Of The Moon'.
My wife calls me a 70s rock-loving mofo and no wonder with stuff of this quality around. Great cover too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Max Webster fan? Yeah, this is a Must-Have! 30 Nov 2003
By Scott Q - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge fan of 1970s Canadian act Max Webster, I'm reluctant to advise fans of post-Webster act Kim Mitchell to get this album. This stuff is a little different then what Mitchell was doing in the 80s and still does. I think it's much better. Very different, very enjoyable Canadian rock from a by-gone time. The title song is a Max Webster 'classic' and a great straight ahead, kick-ass rock tune from the late 70s. I think this is the BEST album released by the Max's, though I'm sure a few would argue the first may be the best. To avoid argument, get both. Canada had few good rock acts in the 70s. We've caught up in the past few years, but back then, there were very few bands worth their lick....Max Webster was one of those bands. Get the first two albums and enjoy. The live album would be a nice addition to complete your Webster collection. This is a great, classic Canadian CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatness abounds 3 Jun 2012
By Miles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok so this would be a review on the 2011 Rock Candy remaster of the High Class In Borrowed Shoes compact disc...AMAZING! They did a really nice job on this.... Kims guitar playing Terrys Keys, Mikes Bass and Garys drumming all stand out far more than they do on the original CD releases...no freakin' contest boys and girls! Also very nice is the booklet with a lot of conversation with Mitchell and Terry Brown about how the whole thing went down. Hearing this again remastered for the first time was very close to hearing it the first time on vinyl...lots of details are brought out to be heard separately in all their glory. This my friends is a job well done and if anyone out there was as impressed with this band back in the day should seriously invest in these new remasters, to me they are well worth the $ involved here! That coin drop at about 2:40 into the song Gravity ( for those who remember it ) is astoundingly clear....just saying... Everything is way less murky ...everything...Kim plays tons of really nice acoustic guitar I never really heard until now! Also included are some nice era photos of the band live and one particular shot of an ad poster for the exact show I was first exposed to Max Webster at that a friend downloaded to some RUSH tour listing site and is actually given credit for on the back cover of the CD! I have that same poster..we got them at a local "head" shop the day after that show...I think we were picking up papers or screens or something that day maybe or a copy of The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comic book? Sam talked the woman working there into giving him the poster in the window then as we were leaving she ran out with another one and gave that one to me...except for the screens and papers I still have all that stuff...hehe. Anyway...get these Rock Candy Max Webster remasters and enjoy them..I sure do!

4.0 out of 5 stars Should be renamed to just "High Class"! 11 Feb 2014
By Max Hykes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A definite winner. If you like Canadian bands, these guys are hard to beat! I mean anyone who opens for RUSH can't be bad. Any Max Webster is hard to beat.... it may be a little quirky for most folks however it is well worth a listen! You won't be disappointed! Definitely "High Class"!

5.0 out of 5 stars their best album in my opinion 28 Jan 2013
By R. Svilpa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
from the opening power chords of "High Class", the sweet electric piano of "Diamonds, Diamonds", great weirdness of "Gravity" through "Oh War", and ending with "In Context of the Moon" - this is an amazing album and even more so given it's their 2nd album. The remix/remaster is really really top notch with much of the clarity and definition balanced with tone matching the vinyl - much more pronounced bass lines and punchier drums really make it sound great. Max has always been one of the underrated bands anywhere - hopefully bringing the reissues back will bring more attention to their quirky genius.
