I have now listened to Maps in its entirety. My first impression, is that this is an influence heavy album, that somehow manages to beat its own path through the sonic jungle.
I'm definitely going to keep this on repeat for awhile, but for me the stand out tracks are "The War Within", "Forever", and "Reverse Momentum of the Great Divorce". I can not *wait* to see what you guys do next.

This Boise, ID based band brings us an album full of power pop hooks and catchy grooves. It is just good stuff. There really isn’t any defining The Getaway Car as anything but good ole power-pop rock. Thankfully this group did not get together to follow the current trend of folk revival, and instead brings you tunes that are both rocking and fun. Most of the tracks would make great singles, from the first track “Sum” to the final track “Reverse Momentum of the Great Divorce”. For those wanting comparisons, think Collective Soul, Matchbox 20, Foo Fighters, or Switchfoot, then buy the album and don’t think of any of those bands at all. The one down side is that this album is only in limited release as of right now. I’ll let you know when they release to the rest of the world.
