“The album’s title track[The National Health] is the sort of runaway jittery guitar anthem that we’re not getting quite so often from the UK’s post-punk revivalists anymore.” – STEREOGUM
“Maxïmo Park have always been best at their fastest, when they sprint through verses into choruses and back out again just as quickly. That’s thanks mostly to singer Paul Smith, who has a unique ability to slip into controlled mania like a jockey cracking a whip.” – PITCHFORK
“Maxïmo Park live at the crossroads of Joy Division, Franz Ferdinand and early Joe Jackson…” – ROLLINGSTONE
“Maximo Park are back with their quintessential furiously fast-paced indie rock – and it’s great.”- MUSO’SGUIDE
“Another remarkable record, Maximo Park maintain their high calibre.” – WITHGUITARS
