Fever, Bullet For My Valentine's third studio album was released in
2010, and is quite impressive. Its my personal favorite from this Welsh band,
but I wouldn't nessicarily call it their best album. Every song on the album
sounds like it has true passion and a story behind it. Most of Bullet's songs
are not inspired by actual events, they're just stories in song form.
The first track and single off the album, "Your Betrayal", is pretty self-explainatory. Its about someone betraying you, and how you want them to pay
for the pain they've caused you. We've all felt that way at least once in our lives.
I don't know what songs of their actually are based on true events, but there are some that appear to. You can hear the emotion in Matt Tuck's voice as he sings the bittersweet lyrics to the eighth track on the album, "Bittersweet Memories". That song speaks volumes to me, and really touches my heart. Its about an ex that is no good for you, but you still love them. Knowing that though, you let them go. This song says that so beautifully, especailly in my favorite part: "I wanna run and escape from your prison, but when I leave I feel something is missing. I'm not afraid, that's easy to tell. This can't be heaven, feels like I'm in hell. You're like the drug that I can't stop taking, I want more and I can't stop craving. I still want you, its easy to see, but guess what honey, you're not that good for me."
Fever covers so many topics; betrayal, love, hate, independence, friendship, and sex. Actually, the "sex" song, is the title track, and its actually about a stripper.
I do like the entire album, but my favorite track would have to be "Bittersweet Memories" or "Pleasure And Pain".
I highly recommend Fever or Bullet's other
two albums. They're an incredible band with great music and lyrics.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
