Editors’ Notes

Stars’ elegant, orchestral indie rock rarely sounded as refined—or as effortlessly grand—as it did on Set Yourself on Fire, their third album. An exploration of romance in all its messy glory, Fire is a reminder that breaking up often leads to breaking down. And breaking down is usually the first step to starting over—a theme echoed in the album’s first line, delivered by singer Torquil Campbell’s father: “When there is nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire.”

Customer Reviews

Stars best album

While I think all Stars albums are worth listening to this is by far the bands best. Tracks sound polished and production is tight yet they manage to convey a sense of immediacy and raw emotion.

PART 2

Your Ex-Lover is Dead 2 please!!!!!

Fantastic album

This is the first Stars album I've been exposed to, and I absolutely love it. It sticks out in a world of mainstream alternative albums, and the emotions conveyed are raw, yet somehow, polished. My favorites are (the ever popular) Your Ex-Lover Is Dead, Celebration Guns, and Calendar Girl. If you have any doubts, leave them behind, because this album is worth way more that $9.99.
