Album Review

Where Fuel's last album, 2007's Angels & Devils, found the band soldiering on in the absence of singer Brett Scallions, their fifth effort, Puppet Strings is a reversal of that idea, with Scallions re-forming the band with a whole new supporting cast. Despite not sharing any members with that previous lineup, however, Fuel seem to have kept on the same trajectory, exploring a more plaintive sound. With Scallions back at the helm, Puppet Strings feels like the album that their previous effort should have been, and with such a solid return, longtime fans should welcome the singer back like a returning hero.

Customer Reviews

Not Fuel without Brett AND Carl.

Been a Fuel fan for a long time. Brett is a fantastic vocalist. Toryn is a fantastic vocalist. Both of those versions of Fuel had Carl Bell at the helm and no matter who was singing, maintained Fuel's sound. That being said, glad to hear Brett singing - but this album may have well been a band that Brett put together with a new name. Although the tunes are okay, this isn't Fuel. Not even close. Brett is great and the band is great, but again, it's not Fuel. Too bad. If fuel is to exist Brett and Carl need to sack up and make amends, at least enough to work together professionally again. Disappointing for a Fuel fan.

Will the REAL Fuel please stand up!

Nope nope nope...this is not the Fuel that I grew up on. Don't waste your money! Demand the original and THEN pay...then it's really worth it.

Don't buy thinking it's the same sound!

Hate to say, this "new" version of Fuel is nothing like the past version. I've seen Fuel about 5 times in their "prime." Carl Bell had just as much to do with if not more of the late band's success as Brett did. It's too bad there was a power struggle that Brett doesn't get enough blame for. While I love Brett vocally it's still a shell of their former self. I heard :30 of "Soul to preach to" and said to myself... "Wow, this music has no soul, no rhythm. It's just a couple of no name band mates making noise that's supposed to pass for music with what once was a great vocalist." Can someone please find Carl Bell? I'd rather listen to the Torin Green version of Fuel... At least the instrumentals sound good! Fail :(
