4.0 out of 5 stars Drifting in a shadowy urban vision
Set fire to flames succeed again with their second album in delivering a soundtrack for the urban sprawl and the lost hopes and lurking shadows that permeate it.
This album moves further away from the song structures of the first album, more soundtrack orientated, more emphasis on creating the vision they have, rather than the usual chorus, verse routine. Many...

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed
I read a review for this album, and was quite excited! So much so that i went to my local CD store the very next day and purchased the CD.
I got it home and hit play but was very very disappointed.
It wasn't really music, more or less sound effects with some very very slight musical type pieces added.
It was as the review said, a bit spooky, but only in...

4.0 out of 5 stars Drifting in a shadowy urban vision, 11 July 2003
This review is from: Telegraphs In Negative/Mouths Trapped In Static (Audio CD)
Set fire to flames succeed again with their second album in delivering a soundtrack for the urban sprawl and the lost hopes and lurking shadows that permeate it.
This album moves further away from the song structures of the first album, more soundtrack orientated, more emphasis on creating the vision they have, rather than the usual chorus, verse routine. Many tracks clock in between 7 and 12 minutes, this is a 2cd album in fact, allowing Set Fire to Flames to achieve their musical intentions. Sighing cello's, moving sonics, sampled hosue noises, momentary speech, slow guitar picking. All combining excellently to transport oneself to a land of empty buildings, crumbling walls, fading sunsets and haunting sounds.

4.0 out of 5 stars a review of the album above., 30 Mar 2004
This review is from: Telegraphs In Negative/Mouths Trapped In Static (Audio CD)
I bought this after the first album, which I must firstly comment on. 'Sings Reign Rebuilder' took me a while to understand and love, and I consider that an easier record to listen to than this.
At first, I thought that this was a mere rehash of the first, and genuinely painful listening. I was inclined to agree with the reviewer who said that there was very little 'music' on the cds.
It is a cd that rewards your patience. You may not enjoy it the first time you listen to it, but the beauty of Set Fire to Flames is almost paradoxical: its almost like the songs are waiting to reveal themselves to you.
I guess its a case of how much you *want* to like it. It doesn't present itself to you, it isn't accessable and it's much harder work than the first record.
As the 4 stars indicate, I really like this album.

This review is from: Telegraphs In Negative/Mouths Trapped In Static (Audio CD)
wonderful - what else can you say or could you want to say, they are very distinctive in the approach to the music they play, i think each track has been made with whats next and whats just been - in mind, it does flow - the rich textures of the music will win you over - theres not a duff track on this Cd, just buy it for the reason of 'wanting to own something wonderful'
you wont be sorry you brought this at all

This review is from: Telegraphs In Negative/Mouths Trapped In Static (Audio CD)
I read a review for this album, and was quite excited! So much so that i went to my local CD store the very next day and purchased the CD.
I got it home and hit play but was very very disappointed.
It wasn't really music, more or less sound effects with some very very slight musical type pieces added.
It was as the review said, a bit spooky, but only in parts.
I honestly cannot see how this can be sold as music?
The artwork in the sleeve was the best part about the purchase, the photography was exceptional alongside the art direction.
But the so called music was very poor, and I cannot see it ever being put in my CD player ever again!
I have given up all faith in reviews, as this CD was simply VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!
