Single Review

The latest and most likely last release from Fightstars second album One Day Son This Will Be Yours, I Am The Message isnt really one of the stand out tracks on the album.

The song is one of the lighter sounding tracks from their album, bearing a basic yet effective lyrics of;

If I am the message, then you are the machine.

The song features very light guitar work, with the usual frantic drumming softened to match the tone of the track. Charlie Simpson has a chance to utilize his abilities in singing to a slower tempo, which works rather well. The chorus is a tad disappointing with it not really capturing Fightstars usual mix of raw drive and blaring guitar.

The song doesnt really possess the emotion of Floods or the ferociousness of 99, but its a decent addition by Fightstar. It shows the broadness of their music, with them varying from metal to soft rock frequently. The only disappointment is this track sounds a little like We Apologize for Nothing with a similar tempo and structure, therefore rendering this release a little needless. Still, worth a listen for anyone into their rock music.
