I was most surprised when Fightstar announced it's next single from their excellent album "Grand Unification". "Hazy Eyes" was in my opinion the most weakest track on the album. Although its very uplifting, it makes the band feel "soft". I can only give the track 2/5 sadly.
However all is not lost with this single. The new B Side, "Fight For Us" is a real find. A slow intro building up to palm muted riffs, clear vocals later turning into raw screams until a brutal finale. A 5/5 track which deserved a slot on the album. This should have been the next single.
The single then ends with what Fightstar originally started with. Palahniuk's Laughter is a fan favorite, excellent riff with great vocal useage. However if you were expecting a new version of the track, then you shall be disappointed. The track sounds exactly the same as the one originally released on the EP "They Liked You Better When You Were Dead". Disappointing, however it still remains a classic to fans 4/5.
Overall I recommend this product. A weak single saved by the excellent B Side. Overall 4/5.
