3.5 greatThe way of the riff | July 30th 17

Deciding not to repeat their larger-than-life brand of technical thrash metal, they tone it down and diversify their music. Although a stepdown from their masterworks, Set The World on Fire is one of their more redeemable albums, especially when compared to their post 90's material. Opener t/t is driven by grooves and macho riffs with an accomplished vocal performance and outro to boot, "No Zone" is a speed metal romp with some great riffs and soloing. Speaking of that, the soloing is particularly impressive here, being technical yet melodic as usual, and this may be their best sounding record to date with excellent production values and quite bottom heavy and bassy. "Don't Bother Me" and "Brain Dance" feature great riffs and a charming silliness, and "Knight Jumps Queen" may be a tad repetitive but has addictive instrumentation and clever lyrics. Overall a solid, satisfying album if not comparable to their more technical affair.

3.5 greatFirstStrikeIsDeadly | January 20th 15

This would so be a 4 if it weren't for all the boring parts. This album has some really great songs, like the title track, No Zone, Knight Jumps Queen (IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN!), and Brain Dance.

3.5 greatTheNotrap | December 29th 11

Their previous work is definitely better, however Set the World on Fire remains a very decent effort. The best songs here are Set the World on Fire, No Zone, Phoenix Rising and Brain Dance.
