Product description

Product Description

Special Limited Deluxe Collector s Edition / 1st Time on CD in Europe / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / 16 page full colour booklet 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from Kim Mitchell THEY WERE quite possibly the craziest band to have ever emerged from Canada. So crazy, in fact, that they opted to craft some of the most perplexing music whilst laughing directly in the face of commercial success. This was Max Webster, one of the most audacious and, by contrast, respected rock bands that exploded out of the Canadian scene during a time when music was less about mass marketing and more about making a statement that resonated with die-hard devotees. Mutiny Up My Sleeve, originally released in 1979 and partly produced by Terry Brown (Rush), was Max Webster s third album and once again it showcased the band in particularly nimble form; the progressive arrangements dovetail neatly, with hard hitting riffs and much spectacular lead guitar work. Lyrically the emphasis is on strange yet compelling tales with no beginning and, by turn, no end to their madness. There are a bunch of classic MW tracks to be found on this album, including the full throttle Prog of both The Party and Lip Service , the mellow Astonish Me and the jewel in the crown impact of Waterline . However, if you really want to experience Max Webster basking in the full glow of perfection then look no further than Beyond The Moon , a magnificent progressive rock mash-up that will haunt you forever.

In my opinion, this may be Max's most overlooked album but maybe that's just me. Anyway, its all good stuff including such classics as 'The Party', 'Lip Service' and 'Waterline' also the wonderful 'Astonish Me'.
Criminally overlooked by many people and dismissed as Rush sidekicks. Max had much more to offer. Their music is by turns brainy, quirky, melodic, powerful and individual. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

I saw MW supporting Rush,after seeing them Rush were like the support band,a shame MW cancelled their own tour later.
This band are all very accomplished musicians but the stand out is the front man (obviously)Kim Mitchell with his larger than life personality,this album was the first I bought (vinyl) and was at the time very representative of the stage show,with the often obscure Zappaesque lyrics by Pye Dubois,music by Kim Mitchell and Terry Watkinson.This is such a fun time album it should be in every music lovers collection,check out Youtube,judge for yourselves.I wish I could have seen them more of their act rather than the support act for Rush.They are unique and there is no comparable sounding band.

Although it's a tough choice over this and Universal Juveniles, this just cuts it as Max Webster's best album. UJ just misses out as it misses Terry Watkinson. This has no more than nine songs but eight are good and individual: some are spectacular. What makes MW so good is the quality of the rifs, the textures, the chord changes, the weirdness, the musicianship and the lyrics. They say this was progressive rock, but it isn't like Genesis or Yes from the same period. I like Lip Service - it's nice and tight but not the best on the record. Astonish me is a laid back melodic song from Terry Watkinson. Let your man fly is the worst song on the record and perhaps the only one I'd d be happy to let go. water Me Down is gentle and melacholic. Distressed is when the record starts to move up a gear. It has a great groove and is edgy. The Party is probalby the best known and is outstanding for its lyrics and dynamics. This is not your verse, chorux, verse type song at all. Waterline is another slower song before we get to Hawaii which I've always seen as the opener 'beach' sequence for Beyond the moon. BYM is the best MW song and is worth the ticket price alone. Lyrics like 'acid warped the global foetus' and "2 thousand years we crossed up jesus thinking he'd make ends meet - christ no" sum it up. The tune is driven by Kim Mitchell's guitars and Watkinson's keyboards and is very anthemic and grand befrre running into one of KM's memorable guitar solos which is simply majestic.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5/5.0 - great album, but a couple of throwaway songs on there. 11 Feb. 2013
By R. Svilpa - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While "High Class in Borrowed Shoes" is a great album start to finish, this one is not quite as good. Starts off pretty promising with "Lip Service" - lyrics are much more cynical and mocking than earlier material on this one. "Astonish Me" is another fine track, the piano intro really throws the listener off expecting a nice ballad, then breaks into a completely different groove as the Max Machine channels Frank Zappa into something entirely different. Where I feel the CD loses track is on "Let Your Man Fly" and "Water Me Down" - I just never really got into either track, the CD could have omitted them and probably would be better for it. "Distressed" brings the CD back up with some really great guitar lines and cool groove mixing some more progressive drop measures in to twist and turn things up. "The Party" has always been a favorite track of mine - the crowd shouted intro, the crazy ass modulations and meter changes, and of course the lyrics being really mocking and clever, this is a true classic of Sarniatown excess. "Waterline" is much more mainstream blues based, but so groovy with Terry's unique choice of keyboard sound it maintains the Max "off the beaten path" sensibility. Finally - "Hawaii" with the mash up of Japanese melody motif mixed with the cocktail mixing and chimey keyboard pad, sets up a true Zappa vibe with the disparate ingredients making for a very cool instrumental that is quite different from the "balls to the wall" fireworks, but still shows off great musicianship all around. Which leads to the crescendo of the album - "Beyond the Moon". Starting with some nifty bouzouki riffs that really shred, then jumps abruptly into the full band being Max. Great song, great album that only has the two warts detracting from a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Greatness 3 Jun. 2012
By Miles - Published on

This would be a review of the Rock Candy remaster of Max Websters Mutiny Up My Sleeve on compact disc. After owning Hangover and High Class In Borrowed Shoes when Mutiny came out I had to get that as well. I had been in contact with Pye Dubois and one day I received a real nice poster promoting Mutiny Up My Sleeve with a letter from him..he was very excited about Mutiny and after was I! Hard for me to pick a favorite Max Webster release but at the time Mutiny was it for sure! As with Hangover and High Class In Borrowed Shoes Rock Candy did a real nice job with Mutiny Up My Sleeve. The booklet is quite lengthy with lots of info on how This amazing piece of music went down. 1978/1979 were peak years for me as a music fan I many great bands out there touring and just making great music...having a good time...Back when you could see an excellent show of a couple of great professional bands and get a t-shirt for under $10! It costs that alone now for the gas to get there and MAYBE back home now a days eh? I love all these songs..never was one to only listen to certain songs on a was all or nothing for me I guess. If you ever really admired this band get these remasters and enjoy them again...the details and sound quality are top notch here...go for will thin the thickness of your skin!

5.0 out of 5 stars Max's Mutiny...Better Than Ever!!!! 22 Jun. 2012
By Rkbluez - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Just got in the new Rock Candy version of one of my favorite Max Webster albums and I'm loving it. I was a little skeptical with buying this album again as the Anthem version that I already owned I thought sounded really good. After reading some of the other reviewers about the improved sound quality I had to give one of the 3 remasters a shot. I have to say that this (Rock Candy) version is amazing...great booklet and the sound is light years better than the original...this remaster really brings out things that were buried in the original actually breaths new life into the music. Needless to say I will be picking up the other 2 (Rock Candy) remasters and hope that they do the entire Max Webster catalog. Rock Candy is quickly turning into my favorite reissue label and they really take the time and effort to make these old classic's sound amazing. If you liked this CD before don't hesitate to replace you old version with this new and greatly improved version.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a rich meal for the ears... 25 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on

Not as polished as "A Million Vacations", yet more sophisticated than "High Class In Borrowed Shoes", Max came up with something special here. There's some hot rockers and slow ballads, but dynamics abound. There's a very special vibe in songs like "Distressed" and "Hawaii" that is hard to explain. "The Party" adds the wacky trademark, of course. "Beyond The Moon" is a grand finale (eh Geddy?) indeed. Nice and hearty rock'n'roll for those of us who crave just a little bit more from our music.

4.0 out of 5 stars max shines all the time 3 Jun. 2009
By PROTEUS58 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
there are many bands who put out a few amazing albums and then due to internal conflict,creative differences,self doubt,solo career ideals,and so on you are left with wanting more.some artists embark on solo efforts,and it just doesn't quite shine as when the creative influences from the members left behind could produce.they eat,sleep,travel,and discuss ideas as a team and usually put out excellent product.
cases such as when fish left marillion,4 awesome albums,and then a replacement singer without fish's floyd never quite lived up to their potential after roger waters left.
this album is just another in max websters legacy of great team writing.astonish me, and lip service are simply 2 of the amazing songs on this well constructed album.pye dubois is probably one of the funniest,and brilliant songwriters in rock history.
i for one am saddened by the lackluster status they achieved in the states but canada made them one of their finest group of guys.
those of us who are in constant search of new sounds and styles find bands like max and after listening to their genius are left with a void when a break up occurs.
do not hesitate to buy this amazing ,original cd.....all guarantees you will love it!!!!!!
