I'm a big fan of Boy Sets Fire, because they're consistenly challenging what aggressiveness and melody mean to hardcore, and to put it simply, there is no one else who sounds quite like Boy Sets Fire. This albums shows more focus than previous outings, a maturity that was hinted about on prev.

I'm a big fan of Boy Sets Fire, because they're consistenly challenging what aggressiveness and melody mean to hardcore, and to put it simply, there is no one else who sounds quite like Boy Sets Fire. This albums shows more focus than previous outings, a maturity that was hinted about on previous outings like In Chrysalis and the split with Snapcase.

The tracks generally focus generally on one powerful idea, whether it's an anguished melody or just pure rage, which in a way, sums up my taste in music in one nice CD-sized package. The softer tracks are softer than anything they've ever done, and the more aggressive stuff is more vigorous and determined than any past material.
All in all, it's an incredible album from a band that keeps putting out better and better music, and a definite strong buy for emo and hardcore fans alike.

I am not sure that anything can ever be truly perfect, but Rookie comes close...

This album is great. I feel I like it because of the politics within it, since I have always shared those ideas. It's also a really intense record.

Boysetsfire are always trying new ideas while still keeping the hardcore element intact. This album along with all the other albums and ep's are equally different and equally amazing! This band is a major force in hardcore today, They will definitley go down in the hardcore history books.
