Don't be put off by the review below...it is just, like this review, one set of opinions. I, too, love Maximo Park and it is a pleasure to listen to this album from start to finish. I do not think there is any merit in debating whether or not this material is better or worse than what can be found on 'A Certain Trigger'. Ultimately, these are B-sides, so you know what you are buying!

This collection of Maximo Park's B-sides and demos is almost perfect. The only thing tht stops it being as good as A Certain Trigger is the fact there are less original tracks on it! My personal favourites, A19, some classic Maximo, and Stray Talk, a mainly acoustic song, which is not really found on the real album, are both great songs. Even my least favourite, Isolation, is still a great song when it gets going. The demo versions are pretty good as well, though obviously not as good as the polished versions. All in all, a great collection of tracks.

This album is a collection of nine tracks(B sides and non-LP) plus three original demo versions,comprising a real patchwork quilt compilation from Maximo Park. Raw,intense(particularly the opening track "A19")and very new 60s and 70s influenced,these songs from Britain's most exciting new band(some would say that was open to debate)were the blueprint for greater things....

On "A19",a driving guitar intro fuels sharp intense lyrics and Paul's voice on top urgent form. Some extraordinary and very original use of words("dull metal moans",describing metal railings);also I've never heard his voice sound so amazing,dramatic and in its intensity,encompassing desperation,hopelessness,cynicism and a strong dash of "angry young man" syndrome. Driving guitar,Lukas Wooller's keyboards and drumwork back up these vocals, in an extremely compelling song which describes the writer's factual and lyrical journey down the A19 towards a better future.

This song hooked me straight away on first hearing. There is a prophesy within the last verse which seems to signify no change for anyone.Powerful lines to think on,a very clever observation.

A beckoning start to this album and it doesn't stop there.

Other tracks on this compilation include "Isolation",Maximo's minute and a half(approx) of John Lennon's lament. I sensed Lennon's ghost appearing fleetingly in the lyrics for about 30 seconds. A track to make you think.

Further memorable tracks include "A Year Of Doubt"-very 60s influenced with a jolly bouncy tune and jangly guitar,but the words carry cynicism.The combination of the two makes interesting listening. Much influence from Morrissey here,but without his agonising morbid depressive attitude. In fact this song has been given very positive treatment.

I will start this review by saying I love Maximo Park. Their debut, A Certain Trigger, is a classic.
And this is, frankly, rubbish. It's a compilation of previously released B-Sides and demos previously avaliable only on British-released singles. Now, normally with most bands this isn't that bad but the b-sides on this album are notably poor, each being weaker than every single track on A Certain Trigger. There isn't a single track on the album I would regard as "must have" or, unfortunately, "decent" with most being barrel-scraping not-so-aceness.
I can only conclude this is a way of Warp Records getting the maximum out of this cash cow, which is rather cynical but I can see no other reason why this would be be released.
One spark is that the 3 demo tracks are truely great but don't differ enough from the final product to justify the cost. Indeed, the reason I like them is because they are marginally different versions of songs I know and love already.
Save your cash unless you are a completest.
