Produced by Gil Norton,the man behind the production of Foo Fighters and Pixies albums,this powerful album showcases the sophisticated musical and lyrical talent of Maximo Park,who now have deservedly won a place in the hearts of the indie scene.
The title track The National Health should have really been the single release,as it explains the current situation in Britain politically and economically.
The rest of the tracks deal with romance,the dying of it and the hopes and fears resulting from it,with the exception of the sinister Banlieue,a somewhat obscure song about terror in the French suburbs,but nonetheless compelling for all that.In fact this track is one of my favourites on the album.Its the chilling synth line that does it for me...
A nice melting-pot of songs,The National Health is,as with all Maximo Park's albums,not one to be dismissed or ignored.
