    Pop melodies and catchy riffs ain't really that bad. You can sing along or just listen to the whole album with the same interest from start to end.

  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.
