5.0 out of 5 stars An AMAZING CD - 9 SONGS !!!! 11 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
FIGHTSTAR

They Liked You Better When You Were Dead - 9 Song CD

Featuring Charlie Simpson, ex BUSTED, now Fightstar

This is the US version of the "They Liked You Better When You Were Dead" CDEP previously released in the UK, plus 4 additional songs including Paint Your Target. Includes 8 page booklet with complete and accurate lyrics.

Track Listing:

1. Paint Your Target
2. Palahniuk's Laughter
3. Amethyst
4. Lost Like Tears In Rain
5. Speak Up
6. Until Then
7. Cross Out The Stars
8. Hazy Eyes
9. Mono
Running Time: 38 min 26 sec

FIGHTSTAR explodes from the gates on They Liked You Better with the intensity, fire and passion dialed up to dangerously high levels. They opt for a fierce, heavy approach laced with unpredictable post-hardcore flourishes, pummeling guitars, a tight rhythm section and enough stop-starts to keep you guessing. And there's the real beauty of FIGHTSTAR: the seemingly effortless unification of the fierce and the tender. Destined to be one of the most talked about bands in 2006, it's the enduring melodies, undeniable hooks and killer choruses that make FIGHTSTAR's debut such an a impressive release. Nine tracks of sophisticated, impassioned rock for those not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not All About Charlie Simpson... 23 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
Alright, so many people know Fightstar as Charlie Simpson's post-Busted band. However, just by checking out this CD the band as a whole prove once and for all that they're talented in their own right. Sure, charlie is an extremely talented musician who was wasted in Busted, and he's a brilliant front man for the band, but you can't possibly deny that Alex, Dan and Omar aren't equally driving forces in this band, and the combined vocals are superb. I missed out on the original EP, so I was thrilled when Deep Elm released this CD on their own label. All the tracks are brilliant, especially Amethyst and Palahnuik's Laughter, not the mention Hazy Eyes, which wasn't on the EP. A real treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb. 2 May 2010
By His Eminence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This band is outstanding and this album, absolutely crucial. Their lyrics are socially aware and responsible. I think they are considered Post-Hardcore or maybe 'Screamo', technically, but when they scream, there is a reason. (I don't like those labels and classifications so much). Have you ever been so angry, so upset, so frustrated that you just had to scream? I'm sure that you have, as have we all. The music is intense, punchy, melodic, throbbing, tranquil and violent, all at once, often in the same song. Amazing band. 100% cool, guaranteed. I also respect frontman Charlie Simpson for walking away from his stardom in a very, very successful pop music career to start Fightstar. Simpson has told some sources that his work with the UK pop band 'Busted' was a mistake and "was like torture." I can definitely agree that hearing 'Busted' is torture.
