Fantastic sounds from the UK!

Wow, a Brit band with a title hinting of Cuban Revolutionaries! Clever! This is a solid recording by a competant group of performers. "Our Velocity" is a great track that you can sample to get a hint of the sound of this collection of tunes. This is one of those strong British bands that I really am "into" (like the Kaisers, Franz Ferdinand, and even Pulp)---so if you are an "Anglophile type" musically, you will not be disappointed. We seemed blessed with some great performers on both sides of the Atlantic that are knocking of some brilliant music- here in the states the "Killers" sound is in the same zone as Maximo Park. Try some of "Our Earthly Pleasures" and you will be inspired to buy the whole collection. Thanks iTunes for the UK beat!

MY earthly pleasures!

great cd, even better than the first! i especially like "russian literature", "girls who play guitars", "our velocity", and "a fortnight's time".

Great album

I was a little nervous about the 2nd album, because the first was so good, and I'll admit I was a little dissapointed upon first listen. After a few days though, this album is slowly but very surely growing on me. I CAN'T stop listening to it!! It's not as hard-hitting as the first album, but the lyrics and song arrangements are top notch and in my opinion. A mature, SOLID, sophomore album. LOVE IT!!
