Product Description

CD Description

Two years after crashing into the US Billboard charts at number 4 with the album Scream, Aim, Fire, Welsh four piece Bullet for my Valentine return with their third album, Fever, produced by Don Gilmore (Linkin Park) and mixed by Chris Lord Alge. The band--vocalist/guitarist Matt Tuck, guitarist Michael Paget, bassist Jason James and drummer Michael Thomas--recorded Fever in studios both in their native Wales and in Los Angeles. The guys were named Kerrang! Best British Band in both 2008 and 2009 (after winning best newcomer in 2006) and have supported legendary acts such as Metallica, Guns n Roses and Iron Maiden.

BBC Review

Bullet for My Valentine are the biggest British metal band since Iron Maiden. That’s a statement that (still) rankles the more pernickety metal fan, who continues to claim that, because BFMV focus on huge tunes (and have a penchant for syrupy ballads) rather than huge lyrics, and have meticulously straightened hair that’s more salon than sweatbox, they lack credibility. It’s just not true. They simply have more strings to their bow than the average metal band, hence their sure and steady rise to the top.

2008’s Scream Aim Fire, the band’s second long-player, went top five in both the UK and US upon release, and for its follow-up heavyweight producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne) has been brought in to create an album that will become ubiquitous. BFMV are aiming for world domination, and with Fever they may well achieve it.

The military drumming of Your Betrayal opens the album with infantry intensity and then some wonderfully crisp riffing gives way to Matt Tuck whispering about insanity and such. This approach is maintained throughout the rolling, pogo-friendly title-track and the fantastically frantic The Last Fight. The three make for a brilliant opening trio.

Tuck is still an awful lyricist, though. This is as true a statement as the opening sentence, and it’s the other, less-appealing side of the BFMV coin. All the songs feature rhyming couplets of lost love at every turn, and repeated refrains that are inescapably, pitifully self-loathing. Luckily, irksome lyrics are always followed up by stunning riffs, and it’s this method that ensures that every song is simple enough to be memorable – arguably all that counts in a rise to stardom.

Maybe as an acknowledgement of their critics, there’s only one real ballad to be found on Fever – but Bittersweet Memories, with lyrics of childish despair and forlorn desire, is the weakest track here. The brightest standout is Alone, which rocks to a rampaging riff that courses all the way to its core – it’s sure to give any listener shivers, such is its magnitude.

Despite the lyrics failing to improve upon previous efforts, elsewhere Fever represents a significant step forward, and practically guarantees that BFMV will fulfil the expectations preceding its release. An outstanding set of songs, this collection will raise the temperatures of metal fans across the globe. --Raziq Rauf

Being a rock music fan i was trying to explore a wider range of geners. And one genre i was intrested in hearing more of was hard rock/ metal. Had never heard bfmv and only rarley heard the odd metal song i didnt know what to expect. Your Betrayel kicks of with the unison drums base and guitar work, which on a good hifi turned up loud sounded very appealing. the song its self is not a bad song, but not one that you could have on reply. 2 minutes into the song was enough and then you've heard it all.
Fever, the next track is to me the best hard rock song on the whole album. It kicks off with the guitar riff and then the unison work again. the chourus is really great and has a really good bridge as well. a very strong song in all.
The Last Fight is also a really goof song, again a really good chourus and some good guitar work.
Now to the best song on the album... a place where we belong is the best song on the album. it has very powerful lyrics and is really though provoking.
The album goes along the same, the other stand out track being dignity, it is the hardest track on the album dare i say and is a very strong track.

Overall this album is very good and has given me a taste of how metal is. I will be looking forward to hear more of bfmv. A very goodd album, highly recomended.

Ordered it on the 19th came today (20th)

I was really excited because it's one of my favoured albums..

But to my disappointment it arrived broken

The cover was bend in several places and both the vinyls were broken in the middle and had chunks of it broken off

I'm so disappointed

Already recieving mixed reviews from people I have heard from, I thought I'd put my two pennies worth.

Firstly, on it's own, without comparing Fever to the past albums, the album is very good. The intro to the album in 'Your Betrayal' is powerful, with many songs following which are great musically. Some songs such as 'A Place Where You Belong' are refreshingly different, being much slower.

The amount of screaming has decreased in Fever, leaving the song to be more to do with Matthew Tuck's singing and then unfortunately, the lyrics. The lyric quality in this album is lacking; the track 'Fever' being crude and many other songs are disappointing to say the least lyrically by being simple and unimpressive.

Overall then, compared to the previous albums, it is nearly, but not quite as good and if the lyrics had been improved and some of the former passion that gripped Bullet For my Valentine had been kept, this album would easily have been 5 stars.

People criticise this album and awful lot, saying that the lyrics are not very good and it's not like old Bullet.
Personally, I think it is fantastic.
So what if it's not like old Bullet? It's new Bullet and you can't beat a bit of change.
And as for the lyrics, there is nothing wrong with them. You sit down and try and write a great set of lyrics.
So if you are just discovering Bullet, buy this album and you will not be disappointed.

I could write pages of reviews for this Album, but I will do it in as few words as possible. It starts with a blinding metal anthem called Your Betrayal and powers thru Fever and The Last Fight with such ferocity that it leaves you short of breath and that only the first 3 tracks. This is a Titan of a rock album and deserves all the plaudits it has recieved. This will become as much of a Rock Standard as "Back In Black" If you dont buy any other rock album this year buy this one. Even though I'm a rocker in my 50's I would recommend this to all true rock fans( and they are British). So dont delay buy it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be honest, I'm quite surprised this has had so many positive reviews on here and definitely think it's the poorer album out of the three. I am a big BFMV fan and have been to see them many times but feel that this album lacks a lot of punch unlike their previous releases.

Firstly the lyrics are poor......no, rubbish......no, awful.....actually they're on the verge of abysmal! Have a quick search for some of their lyrics (e.g. Fever) and you may agree with me. They do not flow, they do not have meaning and come across very forced. They don't reach out as if to say `this is what I'm trying to say and this is how I feel'. Get your head around the lyrics and try to ignore what they're saying and the tracks may become more appealing as some of the riffs and general structure of the songs are quite catchy!

After listening to it a few times I must admit a couple of songs have grown on me, which shows signs of a good album in my eyes. Sometimes you can buy an album that you really like after a few listens but tires very quickly. Having said this, I do not believe there are any fantastic tracks that you would highlight and shove under someone's nose and say `you need to hear this track!' Four words to choke upon, tears don't fall, all these things I hate, waking the demon, hearts burst into fire, suffocating under words of sorrow, hand of blood they are all cracking tracks which make this band so fantastic and unique but unfortunately for this album I believe there is not a single track that can match up to these.

I think it's very interesting to see so many different opinions on this album and am disappointed that I don't share any of the positive ones because I think these guys are fantastic! This is one of them albums where you need to just judge for yourself but gets 3 stars from me.
