A lot of people would say Set Yourself On Fire. Personally, I'd go with Heart.


There really isn't a set access point for Stars. You can get any of their albums (except Do You Trust Your Friends) and have it be a good introduction to their sound.

Set Yourself On Fire is probably the best overall album to start with, but there are some songs on Heart that I actually like better.

So either one would be a great place to start.

Just got this album. Some really nice songs, as per usual with Stars, but not quite as awesome as Heart or Set Yourself On Fire. I especially like Take Me To The Riot, The Night Starts Here, Personal and My Favourite Book.

Can't wait to see them in November!

I keep checking to see if they're going to add a Detroit date, but so far no dice.

The bumping of this thread peaked my curiosity so I downloaded the album.

I really like it. I'm digging "Personal" right now. It's a great song, with really original lyrics—a response and ensuing correspondence to a personal ad between a male and female.

Would anyone be so kind as to hook me up with links to Set Yourself on Fire and/or Heart?

Thanks!

So, I saw them last night in Montreal. Last show of their North American leg and it was in front of their (adopted) home-town friends and fans.

Started off kind of slow, but then it gradually picked up steam. "The Night Starts Here", "Take Me To The Riot", "Personal", and "The Ghost Of Genova Heights" were some of my favourite songs of the evening.

"Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" was my personal fave though, as everyone in the venue sang along, and the energy of the moment was tough to beat.

I'll definitely see them again!
