By now, we know that Fightstar are capable of great things. Unfortunately, it takes a while for it to show on their third album, as Charlie Simpson struggles to find his vocals in the opening tracks. Luckily, by the time they hit the awe-inspiring ‘War Machine’ they’re back in business, with nothing less than Hollywood movie scores in their sights. From thereon in, these songs grab your attention at almost every turn. If ‘Chemical Blood’ and ‘Damocles’ are the pummelling rock epics, then ‘Tonight We Burn’ and ‘Give Me The Sky’ are the experimental, pop-fuelled gems. Fightstar have always been ambitious; now they’re on their way to becoming truly brilliant.
