Burnt by the Sun is (or unfortunately was) a Metal band from New Jersey, USA. They released two split CDs (with Luddite Clone in 2000 and with Car Bomb in 2009) and three full length albums. Everything – except for the Luddite Clone split – was released through Relapse Records. In 2009 Burnt By The Sun released “Heart of Darkness” and the band stated that it will be their final album.

This post is about their second album “The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good” released in 2003. The title refers to a quote of French writer, historian and philosopher François-Marie Arouet de Voltaire (1694 – 1778). In French the quote is “Le mieux est l’ennemi du bien”.
