The Maccabees - Given to the Wild

I pre-ordered the album on the basis of their quote: 'this is the first time we've sounded how we want to sound on record'. My trust in that statement has certainly paid off. I received a signed copy of the album which was completely unexpected, but besides from that the album is... it's difficult to sum up in just a few words. I think if I were to choose one word it would be 'epic'. It's a bit like if The Maccabees' old albums were thrown on a fire with a couple of Explosions in the Sky's albums and perhaps The Foals' second album which then all melted down into Given to the Wild.
