This album is, quite frankly, one of the best i have ever heard. Further Seems Forever has reinvented their sound since "the moon is down". they have become tighter and more focused. lyrically, this album is uplifting and relevant. run, don't walk to get this one.

yeah, me too. i actually like them better now. i think chris's voice matches so much better with an acoustic (dashboard confessional).

What about the cover of Bye BYe Bye... It was pretty funny the first time I heard it though...


ut yes, that is an awesome cover. The version with Jason is much better than the version with Chris.

This CD is utterly astounding.
After hearing this album, FSF became my favorite band (besides P.O.D. of course...hehe). The music and the artwork, the layout and everything about How to Start a Fire is a masterpiece. This album is the inspiration for many things in my life (including my site and forums!) and I know whoever listens to it will be inspired as well.
A combination of the usual emotional sound, rock, and hints of blues along with the band's stellar lyrics. Newcomer Jason Gleason really had his work cut out for him, but I think Jason has a better vocal depth than Chris ever had. It is that and Chad Neptune and Co.'s straight-out music that make this album a 10.

This album is AWESOME. It really has grown on me. Didn't really LOVE it to start out with, but I've discovered their talent now. Jason has talent, too. Which some people in the CCM scene lack, and they're in a genre where they need to have vocal talent. I can't compare him to the old vocalist, though, because I don't have their older album.

on legendary is the best song on the cd, hands down.

i still dont know if i like this cd as much as i love 'the moon is down'. i like several of the new songs, but i love nearly all their older songs from the previous album.

i'll say this: they have definitely reinvented their sound. both chris and jason have amazing voices. they have some good songs on the new album. they have all good songs on their last album.

enough said.

This is a good album, but not as good as the first. Much of this feels more like "The Moon Is STILL Down" as opposed to a fresh start. Jason's voice is good, but oddly seems to make them sound more like a CCM Christian rock band as opposed to the pop/hardcore fellows they are. The lyrics are okay but seem very much like leftovers from the first album. "How to Start a Fire" and "The Sound" are okay songs musically but contain very cliched, trite "emo" lyrics and images. They just don't seem to have grown much. "The Moon Is Down" was an incredible album, and "How to Start a Fire" is just lacking. I think Jason has a good voice, but Chris' voice fit better. It felt more urgent, more vulnerable.
