AllMusic Review by

One of the few guitar bands to overcome the general apathy toward the British indie scene of late, South London-based five-piece the Maccabees achieved their first Top Ten hit with their critically acclaimed third album, Given to the Wild, an intelligent blend of experimental rock and multi-layered cinematic pop said to be inspired by acts as diverse as Kate Bush, the Stone Roses, and David Bowie. Produced by the likes of Tim Goldsworthy (LCD Soundsystem, Massive Attack) and Cenzo Townshend (Kaiser Chiefs, New Order), the follow-up to 2009's Wall of Arms includes the singles "Pelican" and "Feel to Follow."
