This album after one listen was not bad. However, for the rest of the day i had random lines from the songs in my head and had to have another fix, straight after work. I am currently sitting at my desk, screaming out the irresistably desperate vocals whilst putting the air drums through the beating of their life! Need i say more..... Anywhere iv played this album people wanna know who it is. Get it and luve it!

This is a great slice of Indie rock, with a heavy dollop of pop thrown in for good measure "Colour It In" is one of the better albums of the month, and possibly the year.

There are many sparkling gems to be found on this record, this is worth buying alone for "About Your Dress" "All in Your Rows" and "First Love"

All of which were the singles, as the vast majority of you would be well aware of but the rest of the play list is just a good as those three singles.

This is a record that is great to listen to on the CD version, but this will take on another dimension live, one to check out at this years up and coming summer festivals.

The production on this one is second to none, all of the record are well put together, but are not so over produced that all the soul has been sucked out the songs, which has happened on so many records.

All the songs on this record are filled to the brim with youthful energy, extremely distinctive vocals and great lyrics.

I really think that this is a band to watch for the future, as think that as the years go on they will only become a greater force to be reckoned with.

Defiantly a band that is defiantly worth the entire buzz that they have been picking up prior to the release of this debut effort.

The songs gallop along like a pack of pedigree stallions running at ascot, this is a cracking debut effort.

"First love, last love, it's only love, it's only love"

Maybe it is just love. But in this wonderful country full of its abnormal weather, knife carriers and drug dealers, we also have The Maccabees, who in my opinion, are the perfect indie rock band to have graced our country. They've appeared at the most ideal time, when bands like The Fratellis and The View are coming and going which most musical fans, only to stay with the most insignificant bunch of music fanatics hearts, the Radio 1 listeners, we were in need of help.

And this is why what I feel for the Maccabees is more than love, it's a hell of a lot of respect too. They're the band that we've all craved since the split of The Libertines, the band that any scientist would come up with if he were to be asked to come up with the "perfect indie band".

Indie is a term that I don't like to use, it's been a misused phrase, combined with other words to create other music genres, and I just don't think it makes much sense. Nevertheless, if "Colour It In" is indie, it's almost as good as it gets.

They're not different from many bands out there, however similar to Good Shoes, they've come out of the flock of wannabees superstar bands to stand out from the crowd, and they deserve to hold their heads high. You might think that an album that lasts 14 tracks may be a bit too long for a band like this, but most certainly not.

Orlando Weeks lyrically delivers in "About Your Dress", arguably the weakest song on the album, but still a thriller "You stood out like a sore thumb/The most beautiful sore thumb I've ever seen" and the sorrowful tale of "Lego", one of the most danceable songs on the record "So now we cant build castles or robots/ 'cause the pieces wont fit together".

I loved this album. Especially "Tooth Paste Kisses"! - is my favourite track of the whole album. The album is a happy, playful, soothing. I love listening to this album in my car. I bought their most recent album "Marks to Prove it" first. I liked that and started to work my way back wards on their earlier work. Give this album a chance. Song "X Ray" reminded me of Bloc Party's "Helicopter". Also check out the other songs in "Colour It In" such as "First Love", "Precious Time". I can't believe that I never came across their work in 2007 /2008! Enjoy! And happy listening!

I have been a big fan of the Maccabees since late 2006, when i heard an acoustic version of First Love and i have been hooked ever since. I still personally think this is their best album, it has so many classic indie tracks such as First love, About your dress Toothpaste kisses, Lego etc. There is a real mixture of fast tempo indie tracks and love songs, its a great way to start off if you haven't heard a Maccabees album. I highly recommend this album is an absolute must listen to.

Wearing a quintessentially English sound like a brand new pair of Dr. Martens, 'Colour it in' speaks of days gone by; a mid-20s crisis overcome by Indie coated staccato riffs and heartfelt lyrics adrift.

This band will one day lay alongside some of the classic British bands of our time (the Clash, the Kinks, the Cure) and firmly within the mindset of the 'myspace generation', to whom they are somewhat indebted.

This album will provide Sunday afternoon sing-alongs and Monday morning mime-alongs, it will bring a smile to your face, make you dance around your room and long to be sixteen again.

Yes this album has been much talked about and for the right reasons. It has the makings of a classic debut .

Bag your self a copy sharpish I say!
