Heat from a Dead Star are on Ace of Hearts, the label probably best known for bringing Mission of Burma to the world, so it's probably not surprising that there are links all over this 'Seven Rays of the Sun' CD from Roger Miller playing piano on one track to newer Burma member Bob Weston grungily engineering. All signs point to AMAZE but in reality we're served a bit of a damp squib. With their post-punk angularity and thrashing married to inventive song structures and an unconventional pop sensibility Burma are an obvious inspiration but it never quite comes together, reminding me more of a cross between Burning Airlines and early REM than anything else.. It's not bad by any means and Brian suggests they'd probably be a tidy proposition live but I can't help but be a little bit disappointed considering the pedigree of the people they've got in to help out.

I bought it a few months back. Didn't like it at first. But, right now, I can't live without it! check Seahorse, Seafish. This track just ROCKS!

Heat From a DeadStar has a sound vaguely  familiar yet all their own. Driving beats, on top of recurring crechindos wrapped in a sonic swirl of guitars. Seven Rays of the Sun on Ace of hearts Records is the most masterful production yet and well worth the purchase price! Love It!!!

I saw them live last week. Very good show, cool guys. Seven Rays of The Sun is one of my favs records this year.

10/10 Ben Williams

This record is different... in a good way. Forget what you heard so far. This album can't be just described in a few words. If you like Fugazi, Sonic Youth, Refused and At The Drive In, then 'Seven Rays of The Sun' is for you.
