I stumbled upon boysetsfire whilst looking for another cd many times eventually i listened to this. Right from the shop it struck me as a great album with strong anthems such as Rookie tied in with great songs such as "My life in the knife trade". Anybody outthere unsure about what do buy for their own birthday present this year i assure you this album is god's gift to the music world. Their is only one thing left to say , buy it. If you liked this you'd love -Boyhitscar (st) and Smashing pumpkins -any album they are all good!!!

When I first heard Boy Sets Fire I was 15, they were still amazing even then. I have moved to become more mature in my tastes, keeping Boy Sets Fire close to my heart. This album is sure to please, with it's immediate back stabbing hardcore and it's emotional and even thought provoking tunes. 'When Rhetoric dies' is my favourite on this album, as it never seizes to put a smile on my face. Without a doubt, on what grounds you believe, or on what music you believe in, this album must be in your collection.

Another classic from the Victory records roster. Mixing the adrenaline rush of hardcore with sublime melodies and politically sussed lyrics, 'After the eulogy' has all the hallmarks of a true classic. There are many highlights to be found on this album including, 'still waiting for the punchline' the emo classic 'rookie' and the vigorous title track. A special mention must also go to 'my life in the knife trade', a touching epic emocore ballad, which proves that ballads don't have to suck, and that hardcore isn't just two minute blasts of anger. Whether you are a hardcore fan, emocore fan, or just a alternative music lover this album is essential.

With one foot firmly placed in the politically astute world of hardcore and the other dipped tentatively in emo, Boy Sets Fire are one of the most intense and powerful bands around. While their early work was a sketch pad of good ideas, "After The Eulogy" more than lives up to the quality that their debut had promissed. On first listen the mix of screaming punk and willowed crooning may be off-putting, but delve further and this album locks in your head and twists your heart. Put simply this is one the most intensely epic and, yet, poetically personal releases ever made. Not only that, but it kicks plenty of arse, too!
