Well this is some really light, breezy, pleasant indie-rock - but it’s the kind of light, breezy, pleasant indie-rock that fails to do anything inspiring. This new Maximo park album is exactly what I’d expect from the band at this point, some chipper pop songs with some really solid hooks and instrumentation that manages to remain consistently crisp and relevant. It sounds nice, it sounds like so many other things, but they manage to do the vibe well by accentuating it with some good vocals and a youthful energy. But nothing here stands out, and it certainly lacks the intensity of their earlier work. The album tells of lead singer Paul on beginning adulthood, and it does so with mixed results. As great as the hook on lead single Baby, Sleep is the writing is confusing and irrelevant, however on cuts like All Of Me it all comes together to make something coherent and enjoyable. Maximo Park haven’t put out anything profound or interesting here, but for a band of their age, they could be doing a hell of a lot worse right now.
