Following the implosion of former record label, Gut (via Institute Recordings) last year, Fightstar decided to form a joint venture with their management team (Search and Destroy Records) and self fund their third album. It was a risk, but much like Charlie Simpson's brave move to steer away from the manufactured pop word of Busted in search for respect and credibility with his new band, it appears to have paid off.

The quartet take a new, experimental step with Be Human whilst still maintaining their post-hardcore roots. You have to credit the four-piece for constantly trying to evolve their sound and clearly not wanting to be pigeon-holed into any particular genre. Co-produced with long term friend, Carl Bown, they drafted in a full 16-piece orchestra and school choir to create a diverse and ultimately huge sounding offering.

Opener, "Calling On All Stations", starts with slow orchestration under Simpson's soft vocals which leads into a powerful, guitar driven number. First single, "The English Way" introduces the choir to magnificent effect. The song is an anthemic sing-a-long with Dan Haigh showing off his talents with some buzzing bass lines. Latest single, "Mercury Summer" presents the band at their most melodic. A light and breezy number as a whole, it's perfectly executed with the duel harmonies of Simpson and Westaway.

"War Machine" is undoubtedly a stand out. The track has a distinctive, cinematic feel to it with the haunting strings and choir vocals to build a crescendo of noise. This could easily be the best track the band has ever written. Heavier moments can be found in tracks like "Colours Bleed To Red", "Chemical Blood" and "Damocles".

Be Human [Explicit]

This album is fantastic. I used to be one of those people who associated this band with Busted and therefore would not imagine listening to their music, let alone buying their album.
I bought One Day Son... and was massively impressed with the album, so this one was a must for me, and I've got to say that it is better than One Day Son..., the songs are maybe not as catchy but from my point of view that just means that you don't get fed up of them so quickly. There is a perfect mix of shouting/singing and the music is as always brilliant.
Fightstar should be a lot bigger than they are, and this can only be because people are narrow-minded about the B-word, I recommend that anyone who refuses to listen because of that should think again.

Fightstar, yet again, share their brilliant musical skills with the rest of the world. If you have not heard of or listened to Fightstar previously, I would strongly advise for you to listen to this album to get a feel of what they are about.

Iconic tracks such as The English Way and Mercury Summer show the soft, yet strong side of Fightstar's genre, whilst the heavier tracks such as Chemical Blood, Damocles and Colours Bleed To Red contrast most other tracks and show how Fightstar have the pure talent to quickly change between harmonics and something of a more intense composition.

The three new tracks; 28k Resolution, Its Blood Is Black and Mvua Myusi, are both quickly lovable and memorable, such like all of Fightstar's songs.

Theres just something with this band they just cease to amaze me and thats very hard to do. When fightstar announced they were leaving gut instinct records alot of people (including me) thought that could be it for this band, but oh no its just the start. This album is just stunning it keeps the softer sound of one day son but we get some good heavy tracks but these tracks still vere away from grand unification.

The tracks:

Calling on all stations:It aint the best opener ever but with soft sounds from the orchestra moving onto heavy guitar riffs its still a mile away from bad.

The English Way:The first single realest for the album doesnt sound great at first but really grows on you, with a heavy chorus , soft verses, and a good job from the choir this is good.

War Machine: This track is how do I put it um its stunning just stunning thats all I can say.

Never Change: The third single on the album this is a bit different from fightstars usual ground but nevertheless its still grower and I now really like this track.

Colours Bleed To Red:My favorite song on the album and this is the first time we here alex properly sing. This song is one of the heaviest on the album to with alex softly leading the verses then charlie comes in with his growly screamy vocals to take the chorus this is deffiantely a must listen to track.

The Whisperer: This track is mehh probably the worst track on the album to soft and slow and it just doesnt work.

Mercurry Summer: The Second Single again a like never change a different sound more pop 0bviously aimed at the main stream fans.
