are very very good live. boring on the record a bit.
maybe a bit cleaner and more 'traditional' on record but they are still one of the best 'popular' bands in this country by a mile.
but I just don't see it myself. Diiferent strokes and all that...
i thought the album sounded abit week, still good though.
They where sick at reading festival last year!
Can't understand how they got into the top 50 albums of last year. Thought the album was average to poor.
my initial instinct is to leave.
7/10 band, maybe 8 sometimes.
Particularly Toothpaste kisses and First love.
last year and they were(are) great live indeed...
it's not bad definately a 7/8
they're easily one of the best 'big' UK bands around at the moment. I think they get chastised for the fact that NME sang their praises around this time last year and so indier-than-thou types lump them in with The Kooks, Pigeon Detectives, et al.
Colour It In's a great album and they're one of the most thrilling live acts I've seen in the past couple of years. Whatever happens to them as a band I'm sure Orlando will be around as a singer/songwriter for a long time to come.
love the maccabees. gutted i've not been to see them yet :(
Really impressed again, such a good live band! Wasn't sure what to make of the new songs they played, they sounded fairly similar to the tracks on Colour It In, which is no bad thing I suppose. Looking forward to hearing the recorded versions.
