Product Details

2010 2 CD, reissue of this landmark album, originally released in 1989. On Fire is widely recognized as the canonic pinnacle of Galaxie 500's career. The artwork conveys this, with a low-angle shot of the band, looking up towards an amber sky. This record marked the realization of their signature sound. Nowhere is it clearer than on the album opener, 'Blue Thunder', the closest a song can come to waves crashing on a beach in song form. Lyrically inconsequential, with a chorus composed entirely of 'la's', the track's power lies in a systematic build and break of intensity that reaches a Spector-like climax.
