I'd never heard of Mull Historical Society prior to buying this CD but I bought their CD after listening to a couple of the tracks and I must say it's truly refreshing.
The duo have been supporting the likes of Travis and the Strokes and this, their debut album is well worth a listen.
The melodies are simple yet powerful and memorable, the choice of instruments bizarre at times and the quality of the vocals changeable yet somehow it all comes together and adds up to a quirky but compelling listen.
I whole-heartedly recommend this CD, buy it because it's cheap, listen to it again and again because it's fantastic!

Having heard various tracks on the radio, I decided to buy this album and was not disappointed. MHS are similar to Teenage Fanclub, and if you like them, you should buy this. From the amazing 'Animal Cannabus' to the mellow 'Barcode Bypass', this album has everything. Some of it is based around experiences of his on Mull - 'Barcode Bypass' is about the local shop closing down as it can't compete with a supermarket.
A fantastic album, which should be in everybody's record collection.

'Loss' is one of the most creative and original albums of recent years!
It contains everything that makes music worth listening to. The songs are catchy, but not too catchy. The lyrics are witty and meaningful and the tunes contain lovely harmonies and melodies not often heard in this world of rap and 'nu-metal'.
The outstanding songs are 'Watching Xanadu' and 'Animal Cannabus'. They have a nice light feel to them and Colin MacIntyre has a lovely voice, he carries the songs excellently!
Their sound is quite simliar to other British indie bands such as Belle and Sebastian, but MHS are not quite as obscure...
You don't need to be a true rock/indie fanatic to adore this sensational album. It should be loved by everybody who listens to it!
MHS are set to become a breat band, and, with a debut album like this, it is inevitable!

I've waited almost all year to hear an album as inspiring and tuneful as this. It's the kind of album that makes you want to start writing and playing music.
I bought this album after hearing one of the songs on a BBC music programme. I took a risk buying it but I have not been dissapointed.
From the opening track 'Public Service Announcer' you are transported to a musical heaven. Eleven tracks, plus a bonus track 'Loss', of pure lyrical and musical delight.
Stand out tracks include 'Watching Xanadu', 'Strangeways Inside' and 'Mull Historical Society'. If you like your music and are looking for something to make you smile buy this.

Sometimes you can just tell where a band come from and MHS are as Scottish as the Strokes are New Yorkers. But there the comparison ends - MHS are as far from the tight, new wave rock of the Strokes as you can get, owing far more to the romantic celtic sides of Teenage Fanclub, Jesus and Mary Chain and especially Aztec Camera. With just the right mix of pop sensibilities and off-the-wall lateralness this is a stand-out album if only for the reason that MHS abviously didn't give a toss about sounding 'with it' (as my Dad says). It has four stars rather than five, though because sometimes it takes attractive quirkiness too far, and it distracts from the overall feeling of the album, straying almost into the 'twee'. Also, you could hardly call it ground-breaking relying,as said,on 1980's patterns that have been well-trodden by the likes of Divine Comedy.
Never-the-less this would make great addition to anyone's collection - buy it

MHS bring to mind the likes of Badly Drawn Boy, Super Furry Animals and Teenage Fanclub. Despite the lyrical themes of betrayal and isolation the songs bounce along with bright sunshine coming from so many tracks. Whilst so many of the songs have instant 'humability', there's enough quirkiness and shade to convince you this is something special you've stumbled on. The production aims to be lo-fi but still evokes memories of the Beach Boys and Phil Spector in it's grand scale.
A diverse album packed with quality songs, it's enough to restore your faith in song writing.
At the price it must be worth a buy?

As one now well into the mid 30s, it becomes increasingly difficult to find something new and creative and one becomes increasingly cynical about much of the music scene. MHR's debut is simply a brilliant piece of music that is packed full of great hooks, catchy riffs, top melodies with just the right amount of samples and idiosyncracies to ensure it is way ahead of the competition. MacIntyre is clearly very gifted. What am I reminded of? Lot's of things. A bit of Super Furries, a smattering of Divine Comedy. You have to listen to this abum. It is highly recommended.

Ok, this was actually recorded in glasgow and Colin Mcintyre lives in Glasgow but it still has the feel of the rugged west(of Scotland).Multi-layered arrangements,intelligent lyrics and a wide variety of styles make this a brave mix of folky guitars and 21st century angst.Certainly the brightest new talent in the wide and impressive Scottish alt-rock field , this is well worth the investment.Go on join the Mull Historical Society now!
