Product Description

Amazon.ca

Enfermés durant cinq nuits et cinq jours consécutifs, les musiciens du collectif Set Fire to Flames ont affronté l’isolement, la fatigue et la faim pour échafauder Sings Reign Rebuilder, un album rempli d’âme, voire hanté. Car c’est pour immortaliser l’esprit du vieil immeuble où il habite, rue Ontario, à Montréal, que le guitariste de Godspeed You Black Emperor!, David Bryant, y a réuni 13 membres de formations montréalaises underground (dont Fly Pan Am, Exhaust et Molasses).

Set Fire to Flames explore une multitude de constructions musicales, écrites ou improvisées, comme ces vibrants crescendos finement orchestrés, dans le plus pur style Godspeed, ou ces explorations à la guitare électrique, façon Sonic Youth. Le groupe s’aventure également sur la voie contemporaine : clarinette basse et cor français s’entrelacent dans la magnifique "Esquimalt Harbour", tandis que la mélancolique "Two Tears in a Bucket" rappelle Kronos Quartet avec son instrumentation à cordes. Çà et là, des sons ambiants et des voix confuses viennent se fondre à ce dédale musical. Si Sings Reign Rebuilder peut d’abord sembler déroutant, il s’en dégage à la longue une émotion ténébreuse que viennent éclairer des percées lumineuses libératrices. --Julie Parent

Format: Audio CD
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.

Great Jan. 13 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This would easily make my top 10 albums list and might just crack the illustrious 5 desert island discs.
This is one one of those cds you wont listen to for a few months then dig out and just have it on a continual loop of obsession for a week. The music has moments of quietness, loudness, grooviness and everything in between, it may not be to everyone's tastes but if you are into Godspeed You Black Emperor you will love this CD, similar sound but in many ways I find this superior to GYBE...

unbelievably beautiful. Sept. 10 2002
By G. R. Meluch - Published on Amazon.com
a heart broken by a dying dog should aspire to be so darkly gorgeous and true as sings reign rebuilder. wherever one listens to it, one's surroundings become overtaken by it as the perfect soundtrack to the perfect film. the samples of transients are unlike any i've ever heard. the music will make you think about your very existence. pay any amount to own this. it is truth. 60 percent improvised 40 percent written 100 percent the greatest record of two thousand one.

Not for the casual listner Feb. 23 2002
By "karmabomb" - Published on Amazon.com
Set Fire to Flames focuses a lot more on noise than other artists on the label. This does not detract from the overall sound, fortunately. In fact, in the right mindset, the feel is very much like A Silver Mt. Zion, only more intense. Those who are simply moving on from Godspeed You Black Emperor! should probably sample other groups from the label first.
