When Matt announced his new album to be more upbeat and rocky than his last I was kinda torn and didn't quite know what to make of it or what to hope for.
On one hand I knew about his past with Seven Summers and newer tracks like "Chemical" which almost got a real hard rock edge to them. On the other hand there were all the songs from Letters he rearranged for being performed live on his tour, most famously "Beat of a breaking heart". If you watched him live or on YouTube you will know what I mean.

A first taste of what he'd been up to came a few weeks later with the radio release of "It's only love". The explosive opening line "It's a kick in the head" nicely sums up the reaction I had to it on the first listen ... and all subsequent ones, of which there are many *g*
And it doesn't stop there. When the album preview became available a few short days later I found myself completely blown away.

I never expected it to be like this ... to like it that much.
No other album or artist in the last 20-odd years has ever done this to me - well, apart from Letters that is. And now Matt Cardle did it again, hands down!
Just as with Letters none of these new tracks feel like they are becoming boring or even obtrusive, not even after a few good listens. Instead they dragged me in, became more fascinating, hypnotizing even.

Each track of "The Fire" has its own character and style.
The lyrics positively seem to fuse with the music without being either repetitive or drifting off into an unoriginal drone.

"It's only love" is a ludicrous (to be taken in the most positive sense) 80th power ballad with an unmistakable und highly memorable onset and a few bars of country in between.

Was looking forward to hearing this after seeing Matt split from Simon Cowell's clutches and produce an album that he wanted to make and you can really tell, it's fantastic! So much more upbeat and catchy than his last album with an array of different sounds from Every Heartbreak which sounds like it could have been off his pre x factor bands album to the superbly dark Water and awesome Empire. A really great album, well done Matt!

This album rocks, has soul, is supremely funky and even bluesy at times. It doesnt just defy genres it has become its own genre....Matt Cardle and it is a super collection of well crafted tracks that should appeal to everyone. If there is any justice this album should show his critics how popular his music will become. I am happy to have discovered his music but he deserves to be listened to by more people. That he will end up being liked by these people is a foregone conclusion.

Curiousity drove me to buy The Fire, and I am very glad I did.

Matt Cardle needed to prove the critics wrong with his second album - and indeed he has done that.

A strong album, with stunning vocals. I recommend you have a listen to this, you will not be disappointed

Album #2 from Matt Cardle and I'm in love all over again with his voice. Empire and Anywhere are great tracks in particular, but I'm loving Lately too!
