4.0 out of 5 stars Meat on those bones please! 12 Sep 2006
By A. Marczak TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I've said it before and I'll say it again - you either like Starsailor or you hate them. The vocal is distinctive, the subject matter quite bleak, but the tunes are always good. This is the third album, and the first thing you note is that they've bought a few more amplifiers. Place this album in a shuffle playlist with anything else and you have to turn it waaay down to avoid being deafened.

The tunes are all still there. In The Crossfire sets the tone for a more rock-charged album, and Jeremiah is a mournful epilogue, based on a true story.

But, as with both the previous albums, it's just too short!

Starsailor shot to prominance on the indie music scene with their debut Love Is Here in 2001, along with Coldplay and the like they were hailed as the next big thing. I loved their debut record but the singles released from their second offering, Silence Is Easy, failed to convince me that it was worth buying. Since then Starsailor fell off the radar altogther and I for one had forgotten they existed, save for the occasions when I wanted to listen to some of the sweet melodies and heartwarming lyrics from Love Is Here. Out of the blue in autumn last year Starsailor came back with single In The Crossfire and I was amazed at what I heard - surely this wasn't the piano tinkering harmless indie band of yesteryear?

Whether it was the criticism they recieved after Silence Is Easy that motivated them to write this record or not I don't know but it really is quite remarkable. Evident here is the kind of angst and anger usually associated with Nirvana. Ok this no Nevermind but it sure is grungy at times and the lyrics have taken on a personal sadness and even a political edge. Starsailor have really moved on admirably from their last album, emphasizing their songs with guitar riffs now in a way I would never have expected from them. It's a real progression and one that could have backfired, but then they didn't have much to left to lose.

The album is by no means flawless, and it losses momentum somewhat towards the end which is why I could only award four stars. But it finishes with the superb acoustic, thought provoking, Jeremiah. Starsailor have certainly come back in a big way - surprising indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it while you can 2 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is, in my mind, their best album to date. It retains the soul and passion of the band while at the same time moving away from the more despondant tones of previous outings. It's hard for me to pick out tracks from the album because they're all so good, though Faith Hope Love is fast becoming a favourite of mine. For those disappointed with the last album for having such short tracks (Shark Food and Fideltity being ones I'd pick out as being half as long as they should be), do not fear! While the album is still shorter than 40 mins, all the songs are long enough to make sure the fun isnt over too soon. If you want to hear some teasers of the songs and look up tour dates (and you really should) head over to [...]
PS buy this album and money will rain down from the sky and all your days will be filled with joy (note this is not actually true, but buy it anyway)

5.0 out of 5 stars Prefer it to the first two 4 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I came to Starsailor after hearing of their Jeff Buckley influences (and, of course, the Tim Buckley album reference in their name). However, I always found them a little... well, dull. I liked the music, but never quite got around to properly listening to it.

This changed after seeing them at Hyde Park Calling 2006, where I was particularly impressed with some tracks from the new album. Moreover, they showed a heavier, rockier side to them live which I sense in the new album, too. It's more lively, more listenable and more interesting.

I suppose old fans may therefore miss their old band, but for me this is a very positive evolution that reminds me a little of how Stereophonics have changed in the last years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Third time lucky 6 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
For me, not many albums could top Starsailor's Love Is Here. From the awesome opener Tie Up My Hands to the fantastic closing piece, Coming Down, the album was a thing of true musical beauty.
Two years on, out came Silence Is Easy. Whilst good, it was incredibly short and not a patch on Love Is Here. Poor sales of Silence meant that Starsailor were facing an uphill battle to burst back onto the music scene.
October 2005 is hardly the easiest time to launch your comeback album, with the likes of Coldplay, The Killers and Kaiser Chiefs dominating the charts, but this effort is superb and really hasn't got the credit it deserves yet.
It's got to be a good start when the opening track can easily be considered one of the artist's finest efforts to date, and that's the case with In The Crossfire, brilliantly showcasing the band's new, more mature sound. From the moment James Walsh spits out the opening lyric 'I don't see myself when I look in the mirror' to the close three and a half minutes later, it's easily the best track on the album.
The next song, Counterfeit Life, is similar, loud, rocky and, some might say, borderline Muse. In My Blood, following on, is much more sedate, with a sound similar to Silence Is Easy's Four To The Floor - a cross between the soft sounds of, say, Tie Up My Hands and the brash Counterfeit Life.
Faith Hope Love and I Don't Know are good but relatively plain songs, but the record picks up again with Way Back Home, another Muse-style track with a great guitar riff. Keep Us Together, too, is excellent, another product of the group's developed sound.
