CRITIC REVIEWS

The 405

Another step forward and one that throws you around from light to dark, from high to low.

Beats Per Minute

It’s their breakthrough album and shows that with focus and confidence, the future could be pretty exciting for The Maccabees.

70
Drowned in Sound

Somewhat uneasy listening in places, yet sublime in others, Given To The Wild should rid The Maccabees of those 'landfill' jibes once and for all.

70
PopMatters

Given to the Wild is an accomplished, filler-free record that presents a band at peak condition, handily exceeding the marginal example set by similar-sounding acts.

40
Pitchfork

The personalities on this album are so blank the songs may as well be performed by apps, and sung by Siri.
