This track is an example of how Maximo Parks lyrics are used to full effect in this great song. The bands unique use of their accents in the song also adds more character and makes the song feel more human and not a false sense of love you get with a lot of songs nowadays.

Please buy the album Our Earthly Pleasures, its musically and lyrically greater than A Certain Trigger and the associations of the difficult second album have been quashed by a truly fantastic electro indie band.

This album should win the Mercury Music Award this year, hopefully the arctics wont win.

This song "Books From Boxes"is very classy.Wistful and very singable,it shows Paul Smith's voice off perfectly.

The band's version of "500 Miles" is also,in my opinion,very beautiful.

I've ordered my copy of this item well in advance and it will be worth the wait.

I really like Maxïmo Park, its a shame that this wasn't what I expected. Firstly the front cover of the album was wrong, it had another band on the front and secondly it only had I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles), Books From Boxes (Radio Edit), The Unshockable (original demo version) and Books From Boxes on.
