They've done themselves proud!,
This review is from: Given To The Wild (Audio CD)
A wonderful evolution from Colour It In, their 'sound' has emerged as something vocally mature, emotionally raw and sophisticated.
First time I heard it, one had to pause what she was doing - it's just arresting. There are no wasteful album 'fillers', just simply superior pieces of music. They've put an awful lot into the album, you can hear it, nor do you have to listen particularly hard.
I couldn't pick one track to dismiss. I could pick them all to recommend. And I do.
Some oldies may dislike the band's evolution but let's be blunt, people change. With luck, you've changed too. So you can, too, appreciate their beautiful growth.
I was a good fan, nothing special, now, I'm a smitten fan, desperate to see them live, with the proviso their music develops as creatively as it's doing.

A man without gorm says:
Your point about bands evolving is spot-on. I decided I like the Maccabees after this album for that reason; a band that dares to evolve in this way are always going to have my attention, in only the very best of ways.
