Maybeshewill - ‘Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony’

Rating: 7

This is Leicester instrumentalists Maybeshewill’s second full-length, and judging by their choice of spoken samples, they’re pretty certain the world is fucked. The closing title track features a quite detailed critique of the ills of modern society, while ‘Our History Will Be What We Make Of It’ observes humanity’s fallibility via samples of renowned American broadcaster Edward R Murrow, and an excerpt from 1972 film Young Winston. It’s a powerful technique; however, in comparison to last year’s ‘Not For Want Of Trying’, these eight songs don’t quite fulfill the band’s undoubted potential. Still, they shouldn’t be too heavily criticised for setting their own high standards.
