This is the second album from instrumental rock band Maybeshewill, and it's full of the same riff heavy music we got last time.

There seems to be less of the glitchy sound of the last album, this has been replaced by more straight out guitar rock numbers, though the album does still contain little hints of the electronic elements that littered the debut.

Maybeshewill's music has featured interesting samples in the past and this one is no exception. The last track in particulr has an interesting monologue regarding the state of UK society.

It's not quite as good as the first album though, in my opinion. Highlights from this album are "How to Have Sex With a Ghost", "Last Time this Year", and "This Time Last Year".

Title says it all really - this band is amazing! Instrumental riffs, short play times (I'm a fan of Godspeed you! Black Emperor, but 30 minutes is too long), and some nice heavy bits. Perfek.

Having enjoyed the first album Not for Want of Trying and really loved to two tracks from the EP split with Her Name is Calla Maybeshewill / Her Name is Calla Split and having seen them live for the first time (during which gig I bought this album), I was really looking forward to this.

Alas, having listened to it several times, I have been highly disappointed. Two of the highlights of the album were already on the previously mentioned EP split (although they appear on this album with a few extra bells and wistles which I'm not convinced do them any favours#. The album is about 35 min long, which when you take off the two previously released tracks, the waste-of-space track 6 and the minutes of silence on the last #fairly dull with an irritating sample# track, leaves 20ish min of music. That would be ok with me if it was released as an EP, but it isn't.

I agree with the previous reviewer that there are some other good moments, such as Acceptance... and How To... The sound is cleaner than the previous, and I really admire their DIY approach to recording.

However, musically, this doesn't take them much, if any, further forward than Not For The Want Of Trying, and I'd suggest it should be viewed more of a companion EP to that rather than a new album in its own right. Personally, I think Maybeshewill certainlywill need to step it up a gear musically or be lost within the plethora of post-metal-ish bands knocking about, many of which are much more interesting.

Recommendation: buy the split EP with Her Name is Calla #the track by Her Name is excellent, IMHO) and then get track 1, 2, 4 and 5 individually as downloads.
