5.0 out of 5 stars A LIVE Performance Made this a Maximo Album, 27 May 2009
This review is from: Quicken the Heart (Audio CD)
Like many of the folks who have organised a review on this album, I have been a keen fan of Maximo and have in fact seen them live 7 times which is where we all know they really stand out. I struggled to find a standout track and with the lead tracks 'Wraithlike' and 'Kids Are Sick Again' not getting me hooked.

I had booked to see Maximo at Brixton Academy (26/05/2009) months ago, and was keen to learn the tracks before seeing them and for this reason I to a degree forced myself to listen to all the tracks and find that elusive standout track.

After around a week I fell in love with 'Lets Get Clinical', 'A Cloud of Mystery' and 'Roller Disco Dreams', when you get the album I strongly suggest giving these songs some well deserved airtime on your MP3 player.

At this point I would have only given the album a 4/5 regardless of my affections towards the band, however after listening to these tracks LIVE, I can happily say that these without a doubt really do compliment the rest of the back catalogue during a performance. Watching the band perform these tracks I could tell that they really like what they have done here and ultimately enjoyed the slight sidestep they have made in creating this album.

For example 'Roller Disco Dreams' is based on a club in Newcastle that they use to visit in their youth.... just nice to know the background.

Anyway if you have other two albums you'll LIKE 'Quicken the heart'; if you are planning on seeing the band live you'll LOVE 'Quicken the heart'; if you happen to have only heard this album out of the three (including 'A certain trigger' and 'Out earthly Pleasures') and love it, then you are in for a treat when you listen to the other two.....

I can't wait to see these at Glastonbury; I'll see you in at The Queens head Stage!
