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!
