Editorial Reviews

Live - Start The Fire is the first live album from RPWL and showcases highlights from their successful Spring 2005 European tour. A DVD of the broadcast is planned for release early in 2006. The release features songs that have not appeared on previous RPWL studio albums, something of a rarity in live albums these days. The frequently aired Pink Floyd covers Cymbaline and Welcome To the Machine are featured on the album, as well as Not About Us, a Genesis song with Ray Wilson on vocals. As an added feature, a brand new, previously unreleased 13 minute studio track entitled New Stars Are Born will be available as a bonus track. Live – Start The Fire will appeal to fans of Pink Floyd, Genesis and Progressive Music in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Live Performance October 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I am happy to be the first to say that no RPWL fan will be disappointed with this double live CD and the Bonus Track of New Stars Are Born ( full studio version )......I am now giving my first listen and I am half way through Disc 2 and I can't say enough of the precise crisp and extremely well mixed live performances by lead singer Yogi Lang. His vocals sound as good or better than on studio albums.......You can't go wrong by buying this.......you too will soon be spreading the word.....

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST LIVE albums for about 5 years! January 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album's simply amazing. RPWL started as a Pink Floyd coverband. It's not difficult to hear that, but the band has managed to make their own style.

Sure - it sounds a bit like a clone between Pink Floyd, Genesis & Porcupine tree, but anyway: CHECK THIS OUT!

Their 4 studio albums are also of very high quality, and well worth listening to. 5 STARS, no doubt! :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars Woefully Bland December 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
In my review of "Trying To Kiss The Sun," also by RPWL, I said that this is a very average band. I was hoping they would be better live, but I was disappointed. The music is good. They even show signs of some instrumental prowess in songs like "The Gentle Art of Swimming," but they are held back from being a good band by their singer. Yogi Lang can be described in one word: "blah." He just doesn't have whatever it is that makes front men riveting, interesting, or even curious. His voice is often buried beneath the music, and, when you can hear it, just plain weak. He's always struggling to stay on pitch, and is just plain flat in many place on this album. Besides that, the vocal lines he writes are boring. You think there might be a hook coming soon, be he then lets you down with some awkwardly-phrased lyric that makes you wonder how the man can have absolutely no sense of rhythm. It's pretty sad that, by far, RPWL's best song is "Roses," and it's sung by a guy, Ray Wilson, who's not even in the band. Ray Wilson is a singer. Yogi Lang is, at best, a "vocalist." Stick to real prog and real singers: Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Spock's Beard.
