Comment: A well-cared-for CD that has been listened to but remains in great condition and plays perfectly. The jewel case may show limited signs of wear, as may the inlay notes and inclusions. Most items will be dispatched the same or the next working day.

Play.com Review

Full-throttle yet thought provoking, Be Human is the third album from British post-hardcore heroes Fightstar. The commercial success of 'Grand Unification' and 'One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours' clearly established former Busted front man Charlie Simpson's heavy rock credentials, whilst this latest release also offers a darker, classical element to the raucous, guitar-led harmonics often produced by the London quartet.

Opening with a dark string arrangement, 'Calling On All Stations' soon builds into a powerful, manic three minutes of rock-heavy bliss, the perfect launch pad for what rapidly becomes an album of newfound orchestration and intensity. 'The English Way' puts the band firmly back on familiar ground, with the riff-heavy single likely to be a live favourite, alongside the simplistic, fast-paced 'Colours Bleed To Red'. Progressing into heavier territory, the pounding 'Chemical Blood' and metal-influenced 'Damocles' are fine examples of Fightstar at their energetic best, whilst 'Never Change' is a perfect slice of summer guitar pop-rock. The album's highlight is saved for the final track, the memorable, piano-laden 'Follow Me Into The Darkness'. The building, epic ballad concludes the release on a slow, but equally positive note.

With the freedom to experiment, Fightstar have grown in stature. With a full 16-piece orchestra at their disposal, the band have produced an album that nods back to 'rock opera' classics whilst retaining their commercial, radio-friendly trademark style. The result, Be Human, is their most adventurous and musically fulfilling release to date.

 An outstanding piece of music

This album deserves every accolade. Innovative, immaculately executed, and truly inspiring. Not just for Fightstar die-hards but anyone who appreciates genuine song craft. By far the best album of the year so far.

 Follow Me Into The Darkness

in my opinion i found this album differant to their others, being a fan since 'They Liked You Better When You Were Dead' i still believe this is worthy of 5 stars, follow me into the darkness is such an epic ending to a great album

 How do you go from Palanuik's laughter to this!?

I bought this album being guided by the singles they released for it. I was not disapointed at all when i finally listened to the whole album. Every track is very good. Track 8 is momentous

 Legendry Album
