Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Fireproof, That Petrol Emotion's fifth and final studio album, was originally released in 1993 on the band's own Koogat label and, like the rest of their catalogue, failed to ignite the mainstream while attracting critical praise. The Spartan, no-frills production meant that for the first time, the Petrols were close to re-creating their coruscating live sound. This lo-fi, hi-octane immediacy is perhaps best demonstrated by the guitar-guzzling "Last Of The True Believers" and propulsive, pop-pistoned "Shangri-La". However, it's not all foot-on-the-monitor riffology: "Heartbeat Mosaic" is a lilting lullaby with a wrenching vocal, courtesy of lead singer Steve Mack. That Petrol Emotion, minimal sales--maximum talent. --Chris King

Fireproof is a magnificent end to the Petrols massively underrated career and this re-release sees the band with arguably the best line up and at a time when their live sets were the best they had ever done - this is probably the one album that captures the raw energy of the live performances of that time (1993). The extra tracks are also a treat with different versions to some songs on the album and a blissful Damien O'Neil ballad in Everlasting breath - a lost TPE ballad along with Think of a Woman and Sweet Shiver Burn. The album starts with the distorted bass rumblings of Brendan Kelly which sets the tone for the rest of the album. Detonate my Dreams the first single got a bit of radio play but alas didn't make the all important 40. Catch a Fire is again a slice of pure Petrols "rifftastic" pop and by the time you've listened to the awesome rock of True Believers and Too Late BLues. you're about ready for a breather with 7th Wave - this proves that TPE were equally at home writing pop laden ballads as well as the more edgier stuff. Infinite Thrill, Speed of Light and Shangri-La are all songs that should have set the top 10 alight and demonstrate what the Petrols did best - full on no nonsense riff laden pop which no other band has come close to. Then you get the final 2 songs which couldn't be more different - Heartbeaet Mosaic lilts along at a slower pace to the rest of the tracks but still makes the hairs on your neck stand up as much as the final track Metal Mystery. Here Ciarans thumping drums set the scene for Reamann and Damien to pummel their guitars to death to. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best from one of the best. 25 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That Petrol Emotion were always a band that wrote great songs-their last two albums (Chemicrazy and Fireproof) I feel were their best-the fact that Fireproof ever got released at all is a miracle-It was released on the bands own label and the recording was financed by the band too. The songs on this album are great, the over all sound really organic and gritty but retaining their trade mark melodies and great arrangements.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Petrol's finest hour 13 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
One of the most consistent bands of the mid 80's-mid 90's quite how That Petrol Emotion managed to not sell millions is one of life's mysteries, they had the songs, the musical talent, the energy (they were a fantastic live band) the lot, I still listen regularly to all of their albums of which their 5th and final album "Fireproof" remains their best.

"Heartbeat Mosaic" "Last Of The True Believers" "Shangri La" "Detonate My Dreams" "Catch A Fire", the songs on here are so consistent it pretty much plays like a greatest hits album.

This is a real buried treasure of an album and well worth getting, it stands up well, the sounds sound as fresh now as they did then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 18 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
The birth of this LP started when the band were still signed to Virgin, who sadly let them go whilst they were still in the process of recording this LP. Most bands would have crumbled, not That Petrol Emotion, recently rejuvinated by the addition of the solid bass playing of Brendan Kelly and with a strong belief that the set of songs they had amassed were among the best of their career to date, the band decided to continue and self fund and release what would become "Fireproof". This is an LP you can sit through from beginning to end and say their is not one duff track (How many LP's these days can you say that about?). It says a lot about the quality of songwriting of Raymond Gorman, Ciaran Mclaughlin and Damien O'Neill. Personal Favourites are the rocker that is "Last of the True Believers" with its astounding guitar interplay and the poppy "Speed of light" whose melody still takes my breath away. Sadly this was to be the last studio LP from the band, in a just world this LP would sit in most people's top 10. Comment | Permalink
