A great album from maps and atlases! Not their best, but definitely top 5! If you are a fan then you'll probably love it either way, and the sound is amazing on vinyl!

HASH(0x89468378) out of 5 stars Awesome second album 3 July 2012
By Brett AM - Published on
Maps & Atlases are a rare breed. Technically advanced and intricate while remaining palatable and catchy. Their entire catalog is essential, but Beware and Be Grateful may be their most accessible. The opening two song suite is a fantastic display of their ability to weave melodies, loops, and rhythms into an evocative score of love lost.

The lead singer Dave Davison seems even more confident in his singing chops and shows a fantastic range in songs like Remote and Dark Years, possibly the best song on the album. If you like this, you should also buy their back catalog, especially the EP You and Me and the Mountain, my personal favorite of theirs. Also, if they come near you, check these guys out live. It's amazing watching four people make such tight complex music right before you, and they are also the nicest guys on the planet.

HASH(0x8910cdbc) out of 5 stars Great second album, and even better live 17 July 2012
By Paul Allaer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Maps and Atlases is an indie-band originally out of Chicago, and a couple of years ago they released a very promising debut album "Perch Patchwork". If you are unfamiliar with their sound, think a strange mix of Elbow-meets-TV On the Radio, as flawed as that comparison is. Now comes the band's second album.

"Beware and Be Grateful" (10 tracks; 43 min.) starts off with a gently brooding "Old & Gray", on of the best tracks on here. After that, the album gets submerged into more grooving tracks like "Fever". The album reaches a fever pitch on tracks 5 and 6 "Silver Self" and "Vampires", which are the highlights of the album. But the other tracks are quite nice too, if not as urgently. Other highlights include (for me anyway) "Bugs" and the album closer "Important". In all, a great album! The musical growth from the first album is remarkable, and impressive.

I had the good fortune of catching these guys again just recently at the Bunbury music festival here in Cincinnati, and what a blazing 60 min. set these guys brought. They played many of the tracks of this album, and live it rocked much harder than on the album. Definitely go see these guys if you have a chance. Meanwhile, "Beware and Be Grateful" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
HASH(0x899ef864) out of 5 stars Listen & Be Grateful 1 Dec. 2013
By Christopher Arena - Published on
Format: Audio CD
An absolutely amazing album, through and through. Many people have forced the "Math Rock" label upon M&A and then somehow blame them for not living up to it, even though the band has publicly stated they do not consider themselves Math Rock and their only goal is to create interesting music that they enjoy.

Give Beware & Be Grateful a listen, I promise you won't be disappointed. I've seen Dave Davison's voice described as "tubular" and while I'm not 100% sure what that means, I can't think of a better description myself.
