while there are millions of ambient artists out there, they dont have the sound that set fire to flames have. to go along with the other reviewer, there is an influence of the godspeed members but it is not at all like the albums made on constellation records. there is much more space, and mood set by eery strings and noise. it is kind of like infinity symbol of godspeeds, the more desolate, expansive sound and less grand compositions. its deff. something to check out if your into that kind of music but do not go in expecting another 'post rock' or whatever you want to call that genre. its in a field of its own pulling strings with noise artists with sampling and tape minipulation. enjoy.

Then you must check the album out. "flames" is made up of 13 musicians from Montreal, 5 of which are Godspeed members. You can really hear the Godspeed members influence on this album. The songs are still highly stings driven and the dark atmosphere hasn't changed at all. One of the nicest things about this album is that they decided to shorten the length of their songs. It's nice to hear them take a different approach in their song constuction. All in all, this sounds and feels just like another Godspeed album. It's powerful, beautiful and completely unique. A must listen for fans of Godspeed, Mogwai and Sigur ros.

Lullabyes for staying up all night. June 23 2007
By Brian Lange. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just purchased "Sings Reign" along with "Telegraphs in Negative" today, and I have not stopped listening to them.

'Post-rock' as they call it... faux-classical as I sometimes like to cal it. It is definitely in the vein of bands such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Lull, Noise Gate, Silver Mt. Zion, etc... Yes, there are members from GYBE in this band, and though the sounds are probably in the same genre, I would not necissarily classify them as similar. Perhaps to the untrained ear it would be considered the same, but Fire to Flames seems to veer much more towards the experimental drone/atmospheric/static/randomness in nature. If you're not sure what I mean, or think that this describes GYBE already, you will see what I mean if you purchase this record.

I highly recommend both of Fire to Flames' recordings. I feel it inspiring, haunting, calming, cerebral, and any other "makes me sound smart" adjective you can throw in there. Like I said, I have been listening to these records almost non-stop since getting them this morning, and it puts me in an interesting place. I actually reccomend this over most other post-rock I've been exposed to.

A project to side with Sept. 14 2009
By IRate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In a plethora of shallow Godspeed side-projects exploiting existential dread, SFTF's first album is one of the few relatively solid releases. Relatively because there is still nearly half a disc filled with underdeveloped audio moping that doesn't really go anywhere, but fleshed out enough to make this a valid purchase for Efrim aficionados.

Godspeed You! Burning Emperor June 10 2014

Set Fire to Flames, Sings Reign Rebuilder (alien8, 2001)
[originally posted 7Jan2002]

Alien8 continues in their five-year-long tradition of releasing the best in cutting-edge music with the debut release from Montreal supergroup Set Fire to Flames, a thirteen-piece outfit whose indescribable music inhabits the same space as Godspeed You Black Emperor!'s (no surprise, since five GSYBE! members show up here). Set Fire to Flames' music is perhaps best termed pseudoclassical; they eschew the pop-crossover sensibilities of GSYBE! for a straighter and more string-oriented approach, and the simple density of individuals gives the music here an orchestral feel. Interestingly, the songs are also the shortest, on average, of anything coming out of the Montreal collective; chamber music for the attention-disordered? One way or the other, an excellent gift for both the seeker of new and interesting sounds and the classical snob who hasn't listened to anything recorded since 1799 on your list. While you're at it, slip a few copies to your Yanni-loving friends. You may still be able to save them. ***
