Die Spannung ist hoch. Der erste Track aus Maximo Parks forthcoming Album „Quicken The Heart“. Vor dem ersten Hördurchgang schon die erste zerfetzende Kritik gelesen. Aus Versehen. Im Vorbeigehen. Erst den Umweg gegangen. Über Torrents. Format nicht abspielbar. Dann die Hype Mashine angedreht. Auch hier nur znet-User out of bandwidth. Warum nicht einfach anklopfen bevor man den Schlüsseldienst holt? Maximo Park sind schließlich so frei und verschenken „Wraithlike“ auf ihrer ganz persönlichen Website.

Also rollen die knapp 2:30 los. Und es stückelt so unbegehbar los, wie man es gewohnt ist von den First-Listening-Experiences der Lieblingsband. Schon vor Minute 1 hab ich einen Sechs-Achtel-Takt gezählt. Einen Sieben-Achtel-Takt. Und einen Acht-Achtel-Takt. Ein koralliges Riff, eine hetzende Bass Drum und etwas, das wie ein Refrain-Versatz klingt.

Wieder einmal geben sich Maximo Park im Song Arrangement japanisch. Meister des Herauszögerns und Zurückhaltens. „Wraithlike“ läuft nun zum dritten Mal. Der Refrain – jetzt ist man langsam bereit ihn so zu nennen – beginnt sich gemütlich zu machen, in den jeweils zehn Sekunden, die ihm nun mal dafür bleiben. Der Song klingt wie ein Puzzle. Von vornherein zerschnitten gedacht. Unnahbar und fremdenfeindlich. Jetzt (Durchgang Fünf) beginnt man ihn zu mögen.

Und – dies gilt es zu bemerken, weil MP 100% der 200 prozentigen Einzigartigkeit mit ihren kongenialen Lyrics verdienen – Zwei Jahre Warten lohnen sich allein schon für diese Zeilen:

Here’s a song that finally you can understand
A minor statetement meant to counteract the plan
A list of wraithlike things, that quicken the heart

Just another song of faded memory
A raison d’etre for the entire family (!)
I don’t remember it well
I was in love for a spell

Copies of “Sight and Sound”
She left lying around on the floor
She said i’d forget her voice
That’s untrue
It’s just not as sharp as before

Find some transparent words to give security
Another vacant smile that says rely on me
No way, commitment’s a bore
Where have I heard it before?

I could’ve sworn that everything was crystal clear
But I was shackled by a language of ideas
A desert has its own rules
Outside the circle it’s cruel

Copies of “Sight and Sound”
She left lying around on the floor
She said i’d forget her voice
That’s untrue
It’s just not as sharp as before

The final verse is often meant to tie things up
But in this case my morals’ve been most corrupt
I don’t remember it well
I was in love for a spell

Copies of “Sight and Sound”
She left lying around on the floor
She said i’d forget her face
That’s a lie
It’s just not as real as before

(Lyrics: Thanks to Smartens)

  • I have to express thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this type of instance. Right after researching throughout the online world and seeing opinions which were not beneficial, I was thinking my life was well over. Living without the answers to the problems you have fixed all through your good blog post is a critical case, as well as ones which may have negatively damaged my career if I had not noticed the blog. That competence and kindness in handling every item was valuable. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a step like this. I can also at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for the impressive and result oriented guide. I won’t think twice to endorse your blog post to any individual who will need support about this topic.

  • I in addition to my friends were actually examining the excellent ideas on your web site then instantly came up with a terrible suspicion I never thanked the site owner for those techniques. All the men had been totally warmed to study all of them and already have in reality been making the most of these things. Appreciation for truly being really accommodating and then for deciding on variety of terrific subjects most people are really wanting to be informed on. My sincere regret for not saying thanks to sooner.

The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.

  • I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this website. I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts by you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own website now 😉
