Editors’ Notes

Emerging from a decade-long hiatus, Five Iron Frenzy show new lyrical maturity and musical sleekness on Engine of a Million Pieces. The ska-rooted sounds and zany attitude that defined this Christian unit in years past are mostly absent here, though the band’s assertive horn arrangements continue to give their ensemble playing a distinct feel. Frontman Reece Roper gets more serious in his song themes while retaining his brash sense of showmanship. Tracks like “I Am Jack’s Smirking Revenge” and “Into Your Veins” tear into the topics of materialism and addiction with a punkish gusto any longtime FIF devotee will enjoy. “Zen & the Art of Xenophobia” attacks bigotry with a stinging satiric edge, while “Battle Dancing Unicorns (With Glitter)” gives a taste of the cheeky weirdness that used to be the band’s trademark. Musically, the emphasis here is on punchy rhythms and keen pop hooks, delivered with galloping new wavy energy on “So Far,” “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night," and similar hard-driving tunes. Overall, the album displays creative growth while renewing FIF’s commitment to thought-provoking, body-grabbing tunes, always with the Spirit in mind.

Obligatory Pre-Album Release Positive Review

Have I heard this album? No, not yet.

Is Five Iron one of the greatest bands of all time? Of course.

Will this album melt your face? Like butter.

Should you buy this album? Yes, and then pee your pants with glee.

Far too long!!!

FIF is by far my favorite christian band of all times. They inspired me for many years after becoming a christian and I have greatly missed their impact on christian music!!! Loved everything before now, so expect to hear an awesome re-birth!!!!

this is a review of the pre order song

This song shows the amazing talent that FIF has. After ten years they still have amazing talent and still have a amazing message to send. Their talent has grown so much that one of the best ska bands has transended to a great band period. The three songs released since they decided to get back together are in my opinion some of their very best work and if those songs havent won you over, then my friend nothing will.
