WARNING: THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE FIRST MAZES ALBUM "A THOUSAND HEYS". FOR SOME REASON, AT LEAST FOR NOW (MARCH 2013) AMAZON HAVE MERGED REVIEWS FOR THAT ALBUM WITH THE NEW ALBUM.

------------

Mazes are, frankly, scary. They meander from darkened alcove to sunless impasse, the heart caused to quicken and, in anticipation of the unknown, heckles to rise. Thankfully, London-via-Manchester four-piece Mazes are altogether brighter - yet their DIY hooks, barbs and riffs nevertheless scratch out at the unwary. Equally, the band's fuzzy guitar and tempered lyrics loom all the same from indiscernible mid-fi murk, catchy garage pop liberally offered by way of fruit en route.

Coasting on carefully selected 90s slacker credentials, A Thousand Heys has highlights aplenty, and none more so than the impeccable "Go Betweens". Originally the flip to the horizontal, Kinks-inspired single "Cenetaph", it's sufficiently snotty to catch the ear, sufficiently jangly to boogie (never mind grin) to, as well as being sufficiently riff-tacular to inspire devotion amongst the taste-making community, and sufficiently short to reward hammering the repeat button. And all this has justifiably earned it the coveted opening slot on A Thousand Heys.

In comparison, the sub-two-minute "Most Days" pops with melody in compensation for its length, thinking also to successfully blend in inane, Blur-like choruses to the track's mix. Somewhere between The Velvet Underground and The Stooges, "Wait Anyway" and its mangled guitar lines play out iconically on top of one another, lapping against psychedelic repeats, freewheeling with riffs and feedback. Whereas, earlier, "Surf & Turf" is entirely more linear - blatantly, as well as lovably, indebted to the pragmatic Pavement suite as it is.

I was recommended this by someone after i mentioned i liked the band Yuck. Took a punt on it and am pleased i did so. With shades of Dinosaur jr, Pavement and even the Bluetones this is a great album from start to finish thats worth a try for fans of any of the bands mentioned.

This CD " A Thousand Heys" by MAZES is brilliant, but it is not "Ores & Minerals" which is the CD that I ordered, having returned the first copy I was then re-sent " A thousand heys" again. So sadly I am unable to review Ores & Minerals, as I'm yet to get a copy.

Mazes have produced an exciting album, where all the songs are refreshing to listen too. The album is well produced and the songs are great. What more could you want? Highly recommended and definitely worth a listen to.

HASH(0x906c6618) out of 5 stars Mixing pop with indie sentiment 30 Aug. 2011
By M. Buisman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Manchester's Mazes' influences are from just across the border to the North: Teenage Fanclub and Yatsura noise-pop infiltrate their sound. Sometimes they fall back on the influence of those bands: Pavement. It is no wonder they have signed up with the briljant Fat Cat Records label that has already given us We Were Promised Jetpacks, Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit. Songs like `Most Days' should be in all the alternative radio charts. A short powerful uptempe song including woo-hoos. `Boxing Clever' doesn't even try to not sound like a "Slanted & Enchanted" song, not even in the title but do we really care? These guys have found that hard to find gift of blending shambly pop with indie sentiments. From the Wide Eyed Explorer

this is good basic rock'n'roll album; sadly, not so easy to find these days. this album's been on steady rotation in my car from day one.

Yeah, the title is a little corny but these guys really put together a good album. They are hard to pin down since they rock, the do have some of that Badfinger/ Teenage Fanclub sound but they almost sound like they have a love for the Grateful Dead in their souls. It is good upbeat music for many tastes. They have that garage sound like Harlem's Hippie album that gives you an older music feel, too. I highly recommend it.
