  • Summary: This seven-song follow-up to 2004's 'Blue Cathedral' adds a bit more melody and cleaner sound to the band's usual noise assault.

  1. Avatar is further proof that Comets On Fire are one of the most relevant bands of this decade. [Sep 2006, p.214]
  2. Their most accomplished and astounding album to date.
  3. Comets on Fire is the band Wolfmother wishes it had the balls to be.
  4. It's fantastic stuff. [Sep 2006, p.107]
  5. Comets on Fire have continued to deliver the expected attack, but have tempered their forcefulness just enough to make Avatar their most accessible work to date. [Summer 2006]
  6. Ultimately, Avatar’s change in direction is hardly an unpleasant one, partially because it’s really fun to lip synch “Let it burn / Let it bleed!” while playing the air guitar on your knees, but mostly because it still rocks frighteningly hard.
  7. Yeah, they're good at what they do, but what they do is just not that palatable.

    the only reason i kind of enjoyed this movie is because my brother was repeating the lines in engrish, yes engrish. other than that, i truely despised this movie. it was a waste of sam worthingtons acter ability, and im not even sure he is a good actor. a complete rip off of many different movies such as dances with wolves. when i heard that people in the theaters clapped when they saw the us marines get killed i felt like shooting james cameron in the face while shouting "yea get some mofo" im thinking about enlisting in the marines, and i hate the way this movie portrays them. its worse than the marines in jarhead (although i still liked jarhead). unfortunatly my brother bought this movie on blu ray instead of hurt locker which was a much much better movie. dont get mad at me for saying that because metacritic agrees with me!!!!! hell yea!!!!!!!!!!
