the fiction we live,
This review is from: The Fiction We Live (Audio CD)
this album blew me away. having heard only a couple of tracks from 'too bad you're beautiful', namely 'switch' and 'short stories with tragic endings' i was interested to hear the new sound.
i'm pretty impressed. having bought this album at the same time as buying 'the illusion of safety' by thrice, the never-ending battle of which cd's gonna get played began. 'T.F.W.L' wiped the floor with thrice, dispelling the lyric in 'lilacs and lolita' that "we're not even competition".
granted, the drummer's vocals are a little weak, and that's perhaps the only downpoint on this gem of an album. 'the after dinner payback' is one of the best opening tracks on an album i've heard in a long time.
i can't help noticing that people are getting the impression FATA have "sold out" a little, by having more melodic vocals and less brutality. i'm afraid i have to say that's not really fair. i've never understood the whole selling out thing, FATA have just written songs in a different style.
great album, well worth buying.
