"It's true they resemble a lot of artists from the 80's scene. And you can find any comparisons plausible. But we have to remember that Man On Fire didn't invent the Pop or Progressive scene.They are just playing with it and they do it so good that I'm inclined to state this to be ONE OF THE BEST NEOPROGRESSIVE BAND AT THE TURN OF THE CENTURY. Get the CD; you will not be dissapointed."
Progressive rock still rules the airwaves

"Man on Fire is an eclectic mix of hard charging cutting edge rock and roll combined with the melodic rythms and lyrics reminiscent of 80's classic art rock. They sound like a new age combo of Styxx, Rush, Yes and Kansas but with a force and sound unigue to the new millenium. VERY GOOD."
For any Prog Fan who also likes well-crafted Pop

"This recent acquisition of mine is a pleasant surprise, as I had delayed getting it due to it getting too many rave reviews. Other than backing up the other reviewers, I would like to add a few of my own comments. First, I would have to classify this one as New Wave Pop redone 15 years after it's prime, with some Prog leanings, which really puts it in a class all by itself. I would best compare them to the poppier side of Saga mixed with Simple Minds, Duran Duran, and vocals being a cross between a subdued Geddy Lee and David Bowie. And believe it or not, most of this music is not danceable, as lyrics like Just Out Of Reach are what push it into prog territory. The one instrumental, called Hanglider, is almost fusion, with their dominant fretless bass (which takes center stage on most of the songs). Secondly, this CD manages to straddle the fine line between being an extremely polished production while not being overproduced, as the production on this is near perfect. For any prog fan who does not mind some well-crafted pop thrown into their musical recipe, Man On Fire is worth a try."
