Shooting Star (2011) - Release Info Blue Flux's latest album emerges with a scaly smile from it's intensive two-year incubation, then hits the ground running with Bullets, it's punchy and adrenaline-charged opener. The deceptively twangy Picsty soon nails it's true colours to the digital mast, until the gentler tones of Paradox stop down the camera lens a click or two as it slowly tilts it towards the cracked mirror. Maintaining this softer focus are the plangent Eye Of Your Needle and the timely yet timeless Save Our Soul, until Here To Help hits the lights to deliver it's relentless roundkick with an assassin's smile. The album's bittersweet title track paints the celestial picture that sets the scene for Shooting Star's final song, the ethereal Nameless Isle. As colourful as it's original artwork, Shooting Star is nothing less than testimony to a band at the peak of their performance. With delicate songwriting and no-holds-barred musicianship abound, this is an album that stands up to scrutiny and might just sparkle a little more with every catch.
