5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the actual album, 3 April 2007
This review is from: Missing Songs (Audio CD)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty darned good, 2 April 2007
This review is from: Our Earthly Pleasures (Audio CD)
This follow-up isn't as good or catchy as their first album, but its still really good. I suspect the songs will probably grow on anyone who buys it. The songwriting is still just as great as the first album, and some of the songs on Our Earthly Pleasures show a softer side that wasn't on A Certain Trigger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible!, 20 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Costello Music (Audio CD)
This album isn't complicated, neither does it change style very much. Neither do any of the Fratellis' B-sides, from what I've heard. But the tunes are so catchy, and the lyrics so sing-alongable, that it's one of the best album I've heard. If you've heard Chelsea Dagger, Whistle For The Choir, Baby Fratelli, etc., and are wondering about the album, get it! There's more where those singles came from.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but a few blips, 20 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Sam's Town (Audio CD)
This album is nowhere near the brilliance of Hot Fuss, where every track managed to be incredible, but it's still pretty good. After hating it to begin with, it's grown on me, although there are some songs which i still cannot bear to listen to, naming no names. Their instrumental skills and lyric writing are still awesome, but the one thing that lets it down for me is the singing. Brandon Flowers is a great singer, which was proved on Hot Fuss, but his new singing style is much less tuneful than his old. Only on songs where he goes close to his old singing style, such as Bones, When You Were Young, Read My Mind and Why Do I Keep Counting? do the Killers equal and surpass the material on Hot Fuss.
