Wishfire is my favorite of the Cruxshadows CD's. This CD has an almost Victorian elegance to its songs even though they are very electronical. Rage, sorrow, regret, love, death and finally Hope, as always, entwine in the tales of this album. Great for dancing with high energy songs such as Return (Coming Home), The Seraphs, Tears and Spiral; it is also spiritual enough to sit and listen to in candlelight. Roman, whom Rogue, the lead singer was very close to, is captured in a farewell song that pulls the listener into the anguish that death sometimes brings. Chris Brantley, keyboards and backing vocals, does a wonderful job of blending and leading the music onwards. Stacey Campbell, guitar and backing vocals, helps keep the listener in anticipation of the next line of music. Rachel McDonnell, violin and keyboards, as always, adds the haunting sweet melody that ties the music together. And Rogue, words, music & vocals, takes the listener by the hand into the world of the Cruxshadows. Also try Frozen Embers & Ethernaut!

Before the Fire - Deep and sull of tension, waiting for something to happen. Fab orchestration, brilliant when they did it live.
Return (Coming Home) - Upbeat, dancy, fresh and the violin is just fantastic! This was also a brilliant track live and nothing is lost in the recording!
Binary - A bit more industrial-ish than before now, again, dancable, (I'll be saying this a lot), catchy tunes and riffs, more brilliant violin in the middle, with a fantastically panned spoken vocal.
The Seraphs - One of my faveourites, lyrically. Another brilliant beat, with fab contrasting violin and sound fx. Really like the synth on this track.
Spectators - My faveourite track on the album. It feels very deep, and melancholy (if you get what i mean there). Again, lyrically, its brilliant. Slower than previous tracks on the album, the sort of track you can sit down to and be mellow. Brilliant vocal work.
Tears - Again, this was brilliant live. Another bouncy dance track, more good synth. More catchy tunes. Can't help but move to this.
Go Away - Another slower track. Very deep and sad, beutifully put together. The FX are good and not over used. More beutiful lyrics on this track "Forever seems like just an empty promise."
This track moves me.
The 4th Phase - More upbeat, nice violin work. Heavy, thudding bass keeps it moving.
Earthfall - Heavy, industrial beat and sfx. Another danceable track. Less vocals than other tracks, but it doesn't really need them.
Orphean Wing - More catchy tunes, and another great beat. I feel its a little different to the other tracks on the album, but still a brilliant peice.
Carnival - I LOVE THIS! Its kooky and twisted and brilliantly put together.

The genre Cruxshadows is brought up in usually means stagnation for so many bands. So many bands come from what I'll call the G genre, quite a few show promise at first and then that promise fades as time goes on. Same formula each and every time. Hey, I don't want to be shocked into disgust by hearing my fave bands new album. But I like to see the bands I listen to mature. Back in 98 a friend sent me Marilyn, My Bitterness.. I was totally impressed.. clean vocals.. great sound.. great lyrics. I wanted more.. I became a Cruxshadows fanatic. And they followed it up with Until the Voices Fade which was great.. they followed that up with Mystery.. which was superb.. they followed that up with Paradox which was great as well. Each album showed them mature further and further.. but...
Wishfire hit the shelves.. I had heard Tears earlier on and it was great but Wishfire was a shock. The band grew a lot between the time Paradox was released till Wishfires release.. The word explosive comes to mind. The band sounds stronger then ever.. powerful.. moving.. they were already that but even moreso now.
The highlights
Resist/r - totally moving.. with a huge universal message that people should pay attention to.. great song. sweeping electronics that just sound explosive... Hearing this one live was totally moving..
Return (coming home) - from the violin intro with the mix of keys being played under it.. great.. lyrically great.. and just as powerful as Resist...
Go Away - this is the tear jerker..the one that can bring tears to the eyes.. a bit slower then the other songs on the disc but it's my favorite track probably. Those who adored Sympathy for tomorrow will adore this track even more probably.
Carnival - this song is just spooky with headphones..

This CD includes 14 tracks plus an extra song as a video. I use the term "track" on purpose because #1 and #13 are really spoken pieces. Several of the tracks have spoken parts in them, usually by one of the two female members of The Crüxshadows.
The sound is very interesting combining technological and traditional instruments including a violin. The lead singer's voice is basically what you'd expect to hear in the stereotyped Goth music but his singing is very clear. The lyrics are included with the CD so you can follow along.
One thing that makes it difficult for me to review this CD is that the tracks all blend together. This makes it a bit difficult to focus on any particular song; I can't guarantee that I'd successfully divided up the songs. This is especially true for tracks 2, 3, and 4 which blend very well together.
Several of the songs are very techno, fast paced, and intense in both lyrics and music. "Return (Coming Home)", "Binary", and "Seraphs" are all very intense techno driven pieces that as said earlier blend together. "Orphean Wings" fits well with the video I'll mention in a moment.
Other tracks are softer; the violin can be clearly and cleanly heard. #5 "Spectators" which has an ethereal sound which works well because the lyrics are about feeling that those around you can?t understand since they only watch life. #7 "Go Away" is a very traditional "I've been dumped" sort of piece with a dark tone obviously. #8 "The 4th Phase" seems to be about an abusive relationship and here the soften quality only heightens the horror of the situation. "Resist" uses parts of Martin Luther King?s speeches to hammer home the idea of society verses the individual; a feeling that many people, not just Goths, can relate to.
