5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse, grandoise, epic! 23 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
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".

5.0 out of 5 stars Top drawer! 1 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars How wrong can a girl be! 15 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Had to edit my review as before, I gave this album 3 stars and didn't like it. After giving it mroe of a chance, I am in LOVE! It's worth it just for 'Tonight We Burn', 'The English Way' and 'Follow Me into the Darkness.' Amazing, wonderful, awesome. I was an idiot to think otherwise! If you don't love it the first couple of times, stick with it as I am utterly converted! x

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album 3 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. 19 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I am blown away by the talent these guys have shown. From first track to last I have begun to understand what makes these rock genius's original. No on can replicate the soothing yet harsh vocals of Charlie Simpson, trust me, who are busted? They have left thier old ways behind but still found room to keep the hooking choruses and also omars huge pounding presence on the drums is second to none. If you are even pondering choosing this album, dont take my word for it, buy it! Its easily my best review i have given out and will tell you once and for all this is worth it.

Best Tracks-War Machine, Never Change, Calling On All Stations.
Best Download-Mercury Summer, Mercury Summer EP-Avaliable on iTunes, 1.99.
Worst Track-Wow, If I Had To Choose, Damocles, Bit Too Heavy For My Liking.

Overall Rating-9.8/10..GET IT

Matt.

Fightstar are a group that I've only recently started listening to. It's easy to write them off and shun them considering that frontman Charlie Simpson was a member of the manufactured pop punk (emphasis on the pop) band Busted. Simpson had always wanted to pursue his own musical endeavours however and disliked the commercial appeal that Busted was garnering so much that he formed his own independent band, Fightstar. After Busted split apart in 2005, Fighstar emerged and despite early scepticism toward the group because of Simpson's past career, they gained a large following and gained a rave response within the UK music scene.

Be Human was the first album from Fightstar that I listened to and it has encouraged me to listen to more from this band. I feel like an idiot for not getting into this band before because this is terrific music. This album is a very ambitious and majestic record with symphonic sensibilities. Fightstar always possessed a post-hardcore element to their music that labelled them alongside bands like My Chemical Romance. Similar to MCR, Fightstar often combined emo punk with operatic grandeur and Be Human exploits those fusions well.

'The English Way' is a great example of Fightstar's grandiose rock sound. The lyrics may throw off some left wing listeners (like me) but the song has a great melody and Simpson's vocals work well on it. 'Mercury Summer' and 'Never Change' are also great compositions and provide catchy melodies and lyrics. The last two tracks on the album particularly 'Follow Me Into the Darkness' possess a darker element to the songwriting and Simpson's vocals are more strained and the orchestral backing compliments them greatly.
