Fire is motion...

quite possibly one of the most dramatic and energetic emo bands to come out of the early 90's scene. this compilation encompasses what it means to truly play good music. there is something for everyone here: driving guitars, heartfelt and often ambigious lyrics, covers, comedy, and everything else you would want out of a great album. a great start for any music lover looking to take the plunge.

really special

(Yes this means you too Pearl Jam!!) If you like these guys definetely check out bands, Silkworm, Seam, Sunny Day Real Estate, Shudder to Think, Dinosaur Jr., etc.
