BOY SETS FIRE are back home. For the last decade the band has persevered through many things, including Vans' Blowing Up Mid-Tour, releasing four records on four different record labels and touring continuously throughout the world. After being on the cutting edge of the new then unknown “emo” movement, BSF took to making the hardcore scene a positive thing. Known for giving something for fans to think about in addition to the sing-a-long was all part of the BOY SETS FIRE mantra about hardcore
and how they lived their lives.
The band is now an official member of the Equal Vision Records family after years of friendship and releases, including a split with SNAPCASE (1999), the vinyl release of Live For Today(2002), the reissue of The Day The Sun
Went Out (2004) and the b-sides compilation Before The Eulogy (2004). These releases formed the foundation for the bands most remarkable album in years, The Misery Index: Notes From The Plague Years. The new album is filled with socially charged lyrics and the unmistakable BOY SETS FIRE sound, which is sure to excite new and old fans equally. Get ready for a lesson from the true pioneers in post hardcore.

Este último CD de Boy Sets Fire antes de su "definitiva?" separación, en mi opinión es el más completo de todos sus anteriores a la vez que el más variado. Sin embargo, es el que más se aleja de sus anteriores obras, por lo que puede no gustar a más de uno de sus antiguos fans.
Yo le doy un 10.

Better than the last one, not as good as "After the Eulogy". This CD shows some consistancy in writing and the vocals are great. I am glad I got this one. They use some horns and piano and other instrumentation in some songs and the result is pretty damn cool. They went out of their way to make a very artistic and poignant album here, and I think they did a great job.
