Such is their prolificacy it feels like Maximo Park have been around forever. Five studio albums in 10 years has helped to propel their legacy.

Too Much Information isn’t a classic by their standards but boasts enough decent songs to pass a musical MOT. Lyrically Paul Smith is up to his usual form but the main criticism is their hooks are a tad too subtle given the monstrous melodies that bolstered their early work.

Best tracks are Leave This Island, My Bloody Mind and Where We’re Going. GC
