Having ordered this from One Four Seven records prior to the release date, I couldn't wait for it to arrive. Listening to On The Mouth and Here's Where The Strings Come In over the last few weeks whet my appetite as well as reading various reviews giving the album 4 and 5 out of 5.

Usually on a first listen with albums I'm a bit sceptical but after one listen to Majestic Shredding I was already bowled over by what a great album the guys have yet again produced. Maintaining some raw energy from early in their career, there is certainly a 'gone back to roots' feeling to many of these songs.

As you would expect from Superchunk, each song is raw and bass heavy with plenty of layering and emotive vocals. Standouts for me include My Gap Feels Weird, Crossed Wires, Winter Games and Everything At Once.

Lets hope it isn't another 9 years before another LP is released!

I brought this album after reading a 5 star review in The Independent and it is brilliant!

I know it`s a cliche to say that songs can hook into your brain,but these songs really do, after a couple of listens you just can`t help but sing along and jig about like a teenager ( great if you ARE a teenager even better if your a cynical old so and so like me )...highly recommended.

Some where in a music quiz it would be wonderful to throw in a killer question on which band have left the longest gap between albums throughout their career? The Blue Nile are notoriously slow recorders of albums with gaps of five years and more; the recent Swans album with the title of the year - "My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky" came thirteen years after their last release and now we have Superchunk with a mere nano second in comparison amounting to nine years since their last album 2001's "Here's To Shutting Up". Was it worth the wait, too bloody right it was for "Majesty shredding" is a power pop/rock diamond packed with great songs and huge choruses but infused with the punk ethic aptly summarised in their greatest in your face classic "Slack Motherf**ker" (they don't do titles like that any more!). Indeed "Majesty Shredding" sees the band turning back the clock to their early albums such as "Here's Where The Strings Come In" but at the same time sounding totally vital and contemporary.

The songs on this album are relentless in their hook driven brilliance and it is the type of music that you need to play at Spinal Tap 11 to fully appreciate. Take for example the hugely propulsive "Digging for Something" which should be number 1 in seven continents. It starts with huge chords and a underpinning melody that calls down the ghosts of the Beach Boys and Husker Du in equal measure. Its one of those songs that requires 10,000 sweaty teenagers going mad in a field in middle England and giving the bouncers at the front of the stage all kinds of health and safety challenges. Likewise "Crossed Wires" is anthem laden crunchy pop of the highest order while "Learned to Surf" previously appeared on the "Leaves In The Gutter" E.

I feel reborn listening to this album. I feel like I'm 17 again. They return making the high tension music that you can cut your wrists to (although I wouldn't advocate such extreme measures). Every track tugs on your heartstrings! I didn't think it was possible for a band to change so much in 15 years and revert to type so effortlessly. The Chunk have produced a real gem - I reckon this is the album of the year.
