Editorial Reviews

Star of Love arrived in 2010 and further cemented Crystal Fighters status as truly idiosyncratic, inventive musical explorers. The album which includes the hit singles, "I Love London, " "In The Summer, " "At Home, " and "Plage" was hailed throughout the international press, including a four-out-of-five starred rave review in the ever-influential Mojo.

I bought this for At Home, which is a piece that makes me feel like crying without knowing why. There are a couple of other good tracks, but they are not so memorable that I could say which is which. Tracks 1, 4, and 10 are throw aways. The rest are good enough to have made it into my play list. None of the tracks are of quite the same style as At Home. I like variation, but most of the tracks are more electronic than incorporating their traditional instruments like At Home. I like electronic, but I found the unusual to me instruments of At Home to be refreshing which I was hoping to find more of. I would give it 3.5/5 if I could, but 4 will have to do as 3 seems too low.

When I first came across Crystal Fighters, the first two songs I came across was 'Plage' and 'At Home'. Instantly- from these two tracks, I fell in love. When I bought the entire record, I was totally surprised by the rest of the record, 'Swallow' kind of has a dubstep style while 'I Love London' has a funk electronic beat to it. Crystal Fighters will definitely not be for everyone but they will be for some. The best way to describe them? folktronic. This is a band to keep your eye on! If your into Two Door Cinema Club or The Temper Trap, you might enjoy these guys. Do I recommend this record? Yes, but not for everyone. I'm definitely interested to see what else comes from the Crystal Fighters.

A Spanish/British Group who combine electronic dance music with Basque folk music (!), the result is a far-out, rave-on-the-outskirts-of-town affair that pays little attention to intelligent lyrics and heaps tons of attention on sonic excitement and sheer vocal rawness ("I Love London" and "I Do This Everyday"). They already scored a Puma running shoe commercial with the chugging "Follow," obviously the most fully-formed song here (and the weirdest, cheapest video; see YouTube). Every song is infinitely listenable, however, making this THE summer disc to spin away the hot mornings and warm, exciting nights. But this album won't wear out its welcome come autumn, either. For more summer kinky listening, also check out German electronic jazzters, DePhazz's new cd, "Audio Elastique;" the funky rooster blowing pink bubble gum on the cover tells you everything you need to know!

This does fall in the electronic genre but not overdone. The music is very acoustic. The vocals sound like folk music and the mix of the music and vocals merry incredibly well. Each instrument style compliments each other.

I discovered this band from a running shoe commercial one day watching tv. I came on amazon to search for them then sampled this cd and I immediatly bought this cd. I fell in love with this band just by these sample songs and thats rare for me. This band is amazing!!

By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, Mississippi

There is a new trend in bands, many members with genre pushing music. Crystal Fighters fits that mold.
They formed in London in 2007, and named themselves after an unfinished opera. The opera was being composed by the grandfather of one of the singer's Laure Stockley. The manuscript was filled wtih prophetic images, and wild, oft times, deranged ramblings.
"We started writing music around the book and learning about Basque culture and how the music and history has evolved. From there we decided we wanted to finish the opera and do a live show that would get across some of the amazing, crazy...stuff that was in this book. So we crafted this live show around the book and wrote new music based on its directions and looking at Basque music as a whole," said Gilbert Vierich, one of the founding members, who plays electronics, guitars, txalaparta and percussion.
The other founding members are Sebastian Pringle, lead vocals and guitar and Graham Dickson, guitar and txalaparta.
This is some pretty strange stuff, held together by dance rhythms and out of space synths. I love it.
This new CD, Star of Love, released in American a few months ago. If you experiment, don't miss this one.

Very unique mix of world music, electronica, and indie rock. Even though there's a great variety in each track they all have their signature sound. Every track is good enough to be a single really, just a great album.

Rarely is there an album these days where every song is enjoyable, people at work even ask who is playing. So good job and keep it up Chrystal fighters you have a very unique sound.
