Eclectic and pleasing

On Peak Hill is probably the best song on this album, though International Rock Star and Write What You Know are also very well done. You may find yourself hearing the My Radio chorus too often, and among several tracks, but it's still very enjoyable. Toxic Holiday is a relatively simplistic song, and is probably the weakest one. But overall, it's still completely up to par with their other albums.

Mellow sounds with a tranquil feel

Stars brings together lighter melodies and funky beats to create a unique sound. Throughout Nightsongs, there is a mix of the upbeat and the down low, casting a range of acoustic experiences that instill melancholy, blissful awareness, and other mellow feelings.

mellow fabulous

Nightsongs is the best album by this group. It is very mellow and chill. My favorite song, however, is not on it. You must own Nightsongs, but get your hands "Death to Death" from their Heart album.

Stars album on emusic

I got into the Stars through their 2004 album "Set Yourself on Fire" and slowly backtracked through the catalogue from there. Out of all their albums I'd have to sya this one is the best. It ranges from french euro-pop on "Counting the stars on the ceiling" to indie-groove on the "My radio"s. An excellent album by a stellar band, well worth the cost.

36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Stars reveal an obsession with stylish ’80s rock on Nightsongs; the most obvious evidence is the band’s cover of the Smiths’ “This Charming Man.” But that doesn’t mean the Montréal group’s debut sounds like it’s from that decade. Drawing equally from new wave and the sophisticated electronic pop of acts such as Saint Etienne and Momus, Stars make every note painfully romantic. Even the vocals make a song about “stars on the ceiling” or words like “motherf*cking” sound innocent and respectable. Several guest musicians and vocalists contribute to Nightsongs (including labelmate Kendall Jane Meade of Mascott), resulting in a chamber pop ensemble comprised of keyboards, horns, and strings. Positively charming. – Kenyon Hopkin
