Quicken The Heart (CD+DVD)
With high expectations since their previous albums "A Certain Trigger" and "Our Earthly Pleasures", the new Maximo Park album did not disappoint me. Brilliantly written with the similar emotion and "velocity" of rhythms. It is a splendour of art that can be excessively addictive! This exclusive edition of the new album is certainly a treat for any Maximo fan, with a Live at Newcastle Arena DVD lasting about an hour and an extra booklet with the band's recent photography from their travelling of the world. The songs to skip to are definitely "Let's Get Clinical" and "Tanned" which are both sincere and idiosyncratic.
