Product Description

Another Bargain From Barrie's Discs.....

Amazon.co.uk

Minuteman are an indie four-piece built around the voice and songs of Maidstone-born frontman Matt Jones; Resigned to Life is their debut album, and it's a heck of a fine start. Minuteman have a rare knack for giant, surging melody and an intriguing way with an arrangement--traits they share with their closest spiritual contemporaries, Mull Historical Society (Minuteman's early single "Big Boy", and MHS's "Watching Xanadu" could have been separated at birth).

Minuteman's specialty is managing to build songs that, while being accessibly and agreeably tuneful, do not always proceed as might be expected. "Quality Time" lurches suddenly and effectively into a choked, claustrophobic cacophony of distortion. "I Love" begins as a gentle ballad, backed by a twitching drum machine that suggests a clock ticking down to something; cleverly, however, the song never quite explodes as threatened. Resigned to Life is an extremely promising debut. --Andrew Mueller

Having just seen minuteman live supporting gemma hayes and suede, i have to say minuteman impressed very much on the night especially my two faves 5000 minutes of fame and Big Boy. i first heard of minuteman on the Q awards and they seem to have gone strength to strength over the past few months. This album is a fantastic peice of muscisian-ship. What else can you expect from an ex ultrasound keyboardist and nudist model? Matt the frontmans voice is fantastic in this album, he accentuates the tunes perfectly. The songs are very much the right length contrary to other people. They are small enough to keep you interested and long enough to appreciate the wizardry.
High points of the album are definatly "big boy" and "5000 minutes of pain"

Its too many years since I first saw Minuteman play....and I was hooked from the start. All this time later, the album is a gem that will not disappoint anyone who is looking for classic British guitar music. Give it a listen, I will gaurantee that after you have heard this album twice.....you will never want to be without it again

Format: Audio CD
First things first! Resigned to life isn't for everyone. However, if you like your music tuneful, moving and long then this is a must!
It was perhaps a mistake on minutemans part putting the singles as the first 4 songs, but this doesnt take away from their quality. 'Gave you all the blame', '5000 minutes of pain' and 'words fail me now' manage to combine moving and heartfelt lyrics with good tunes which can stick in your head for days. The other single taken from the album - 'bigboy' lacks the downbeat feel of many of the other songs, and along with 'quality time' it offers a witty and extremely catchy look at fairly normal situations, such as sitting down with a beer and watching neighbours!! The final standout song on the album is 'rid of you' which is heartbreaking, and has a meloncholic melody to match!
The other 4 songs arent bad, in fact all the way through matt jones writes beautiful lyrics, they just don't have quite such memorable tunes, but are still well worth a listen or 2!
My one criticism is of the track length! No track on the album is under 5 minutes long, and they don't always use this time well, in fact most of the songs could easily be whittled down to 4 minutes without losing any real content!
So although this album is in my opinion a great piece of art that can be enjoyed by many, i wouldnt advise those of you looking for the 3 minute pop songs of the strokes or king adora to pick up a copy! To the rest of you - run out and get it now!

On first listen you know that this will only get better with repeated listening and it doesn't disappoint.
For those of you familiar with Remy Zero's 'Villa Elaine' and the effect that has on you in places, then think Minuteman. In fact, this album, in my opinion, is a more complete piece of work than RZ's album.
For those of you not familiar with Remy Zero or have not heard Minuteman's singles, think intelligent-melodic.

If you think Coldplay are great, you must own this CD 22 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I will not waste your time with lengthy reviews and poetry. It is very simple, if you think Coldplay are great (which I happen to believe they are), then Minuteman will blow your top off. This CD is awesome from start to finish. Buy it, you will never regret it. If you doubt me, sample it. But you will ultimately agree with me, you can't do without owning it if you are passionate about your music collection.

Nothing new under the sun 18 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After the recommendation made by the "music fan" in London (and thanks for that!!) I decided to go and buy the album, which I found pretty uninteresting. Just another little British band doing same things done by others and that will probably go into anonimity shortly.
