  1. While Quicken the Heart isn't bad, its slide into the nondescript is certainly disappointing.
  2. They will remain a formidable live proposition, but Maximo Park's third album has to go down as a disappointment--especially given the band's previous high standards.
  3. Quicken The Heart, however, goes nowhere new and hardly bests its predecessor.
