Fire Note Says: If you liked 'em before you will like 'em now!
The Fire marks the fourth long player from Senses Fail and it properly showcases the band at the top of their game with a sound that is completely focused, hungry and energized. The record is a mix of everything Senses Fail has brought to the table in the past, which is emo type lyrics, short burst screamo sections and plenty of catchy melodies that keep a pop-punk flame lit in the background. The Fire does not contain any one track that will convert tons of new fans to Senses Fail but it should be a must for any current follower of the band or this genre. What sets Senses Fail apart from some of their peers, is the fact that The Fire contains no gimmicks. The record is all live guitar and drums with no samples while relying heavily on heart pounding riffs filled with large sing-a-long choruses. This organic vibe keeps things real for the group, as The Fire is a true cleansing of some of the pitfalls the band has overcome in the last several years. The message is clear, that it is ok to be lost but that it is also necessary to push through and find yourself again. Senses Fail won't be for everyone but for those who partake in checking out The Fire, the record is one of the more catchy releases in the bands catalog and simply gets better with repeat listens and won't disappoint.
