Maximillian Colby


Lovitt 30

Released on September 17, 2002


Simply put, the Maximillian Colby retrospective discography is a document of not only a (sadly) relatively obscure band, but also a snapshot of a mid-'90s sound still aped by fall-on-the-floor-wailing revivalists today. With songs that run such a gamut of genres, Maximillian Colby never let their music lapse lazily into incoherence. Rather, the sounds they created are a lesson in methodical precision and totality. This charismatic musical approach ensures that Maximillian Colby's music remains as captivating, animated, and vital as it was a decade ago.

This is another of those "essential emo albums" - you know, one of the of things. This is more Drive Like Jehu-ish: kind of post-rock-y, with long, meandering, repetitive songs, and sparse, buried vocals. The songs are simply too long for me, and the discography format prevents the album as a whole from grabbing me like "Yank Crime" does. This is another "good in small doses" album, I guess.

Max Colby was awesome, they helped plant/water the seeds of an amalgam of music styles from what one will call indie to (scr)emo, "post rock", "emocore", etc... I don't really know what to call it, and who am I to say? they just rocked, and still do. Don't expect any short spastic bombardments as entire songs, but rather occasional said bombardments in a build up/down sort of way, mixed into longer songs. it's more like a constant wave of mutiny with varying levels of extremity... yeah... anyhow, the album's long, way over an hour. good music to chill to. nice.

One of the best disccographies to be released and easily found. Great European emo, 90s style. Worth the price.

This discography is amazing. I hadn't heard anything by maximillian colby when I bought this, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. Maximillian colby don't fit nicely in one genre, but have clear elements of post-rock, emo, and even some oldies-style influences I hear. Maximillian colby rock through the 16 tracks on here with ease, and it's sad that they broke up when they did. The recording quality on some of the songs isn't always so great, but the album itself still rocks.

For Fans of A Day in Black and White

Having basically discovered emo-core by accident, I quickly discovered that the genre's early bands suited my taste moreso than the modern ones. It's kind of hard to imagine that Dashboard Confessional is considered emo today after hearing Maximillian Colby. It's not just that DC has a lot more melody and, uh, lyrics than MaxCo-- some fundamental dynamic shift appears to have occurred in the music as well. MaxCo play blistering, heavy rock at midtempo without managing to sound macho at all. The singing (which is really screaming) is scattershot, if it's present at all, and the lyrics are a little on the interminable side. If this is what emo is really about, count me in.

this album has its highlights and its low points. definetly for fans of shotmaker, and for sleepytime trio(obviously). it ranges from emotionally breathtaking songs like right right left to the more hardcore approach like anacin. complete with clips of the band goofing of after some songs. balance is a truely incredible song, which has max colby playing music over one of their friends reading a poem, the build ups and drawbacks are placed perfectly. if you like the cozy feeling of completely understanding lyrics in a song, i would not suggest this. max colby's lyrics appear to be almost random sentece fragments thrown together. upon further inspection they begin to make a little more sense, a little. all in all, not a bad album, a must have for fans on the early 90's "emotional hardcore" scene. as already stated.

Damn, I waited too long to review this, and I could have had the first review. But it doesn't matter. This is early 90's classic emo right here. I compare this band to Shotmaker. Just, they're much more instrumental, and when there are vocals, they're harder than Shotmaker's. If you like the old emo style, this is a must have. Or if you're just getting into it and want something good, you'll want to buy this. It's 70+ minutes, and that's where I'm going to give it a point off, because it's not always a very entertaining album. It's more like a 4.5, but I can't do that (we really need to be able to give half stars here).

i discovered max colby when i was trying to find some better/older emo. i was amazed at first listen but found this cd incredibly hard to find until by chance i searched here and found it. an incredible cd..its emo and hardcore stuff. nothing to compare it to except older emo bands and post-hardcore music of the early 90s. some people may be mad because a lot of the songs are 80-90% music with just howling screams to break it up. the music is the important thing here, not the lyrics, and its supposed to set a mood. standout tracks are the epic balance, whats the matter river, sparcly, sifelaver, and one gallon alda.
