Wall Of Arms can be likened to Colour It In's older, more world-weary brother. Although the adrenaline buzz and doe-eyed romanticism of the first album hasn't been totally discarded, it certainly has been tamed. No longer fresh-faced, the band are to be found ruminating on what the hell just happened, leaving Wall of Arms feeling like some kind of Colour It In aftermath. While the Maccabees aren't depressed or out of love, neither are they looking forward. They have clearly spent a lot of time thinking, walking fine lines between emotional extremes. For the listener, the corrolory is an album profuse with tension and feelings of insecurity. The album's superb opener, Love You Better is representative of the album. Built on a lover's vow, the song takes you into the heart of a faltering relationship and the complexities that lie within it - quite a leap from two-minute ditties about toothpaste-flavoured kisses.Read more ›
If you're into indie music this is certainly for you, and even if you're not, give it a try because they are truly fantastic!
This particular album for me is the best of the two, it's more matured and defined, but both are amazing and definitely worth having in your music collection! Watch this space, they're the next big thing!
Usually if something doesn't grab me straight away i don't tend to really bother with it again, but being such a big fan of The Maccabees i gave it another chance...best decision i've made in a long time.
All of the tracks are equally amazing. They all flow so well into each other, and it's actually really difficult to pick out the best track.
The whole album sounds so much more grown up than 'colour it in', but still has that element of fun and that distinct maccabees sound. One of the best albums of the year so far!
So for anyone who wasn't that taken by this album after a couple of listens; persevere !
Songs such as ;No Kind Words, Lover You Better, Bag of Bones, One Hand Holding and Young Lions are terriffic and are worthy of a download alone.
Get this album!

Of course, when any artist/band release a second album - there comes with it a great amount of suspense, hype and worry. Read morePublished on 12 April 2013 by Chloe
