In my top singles of 2005 post I included a Maximo Park song 'Apply Some Pressure', and it is on the strength of this one song that I purchased the album. I meant to buy it a long time ago [Well at least when the single had come out.]
I used to buy quite a few albums on the strength of a song, and more often than not I would be slightly disappointed but sometimes I would find a real gem. Now I usually will only buy an album if I can listen to it first or if quite a few singles have been released. I know that this has stiffled my music taste slightly as it means I don't hear as many new songs as I used to but I'd heard a few good things about them so I took the plunge. After all £8.75 from CD-WOW isn't really that much for what on first listening is quite a good album [I'm only 6 tracks in at the moment].

What's my view? Well how am I supposed to know? Write a review. Well how objective can I be?
It arrived!! I've now got my hands on the Maximo Park Album 'A Certain Trigger' and I'm getting my first taste of it whilst I'm typing this post. Here's to the future!
