I recently spoke with frontman and main lyricist Weeks about several of the songs on Marks to Prove It and came away convinced that The Maccabees have produced a magnum opus that could prove to be the collection that ensures they’ll leave their mark on music for some time to come. And thank you for that. So I have the download, Orlando, so I guess the downside of downloads is you don’t get the booklet. I’m certainly a guy who loves to dig into the lyrics, so I don’t have that at my disposal, but from listening to the record, the theme that I got out of it was maybe that the only constant is change. Is that fair to say? Yeah, I think it definitely plays a part.

Just received my signed copy on blue vinyl with the A-side label printed across the playing surface!

Good album, more immediate than Given To The Wild but not quite hitting the heights of their first two.On the blue vinyl pressing: I've had 2 slightly warped copies of this; exchanged once, will just keep the 2nd. Plays fine but annoying. Not sure how widespread a problem it is.
