The Fire

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
On their fourth full-length album, The Fire, Senses Fail once again prove themselves to be one of the most consistent heavy-hitters in the post-hardcore world. Like the album's namesake, The Fire starts with a small spark that quickly builds itself into an emotional blaze that burns steadily across all 11 tracks, taking the listener on an exceptional musical ride.

The band reproduces this feat again as it shifts from the straight-ahead drive of "Irish Eyes" to the careful build of "Hold On," which closes out the album on a high note with a kind of grand emotional release filled with gang vocals and big, bright guitar work as The Fire smolders out, putting a bow on yet another solid outing from Senses Fail.
