From Autumn To Ashes

Fiction We Live

Vagrant 386

Released on September 9, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

While FATA are a smart, high-concept band – after all, Autumn is a character in a book yet to be written, not a reference to the season- The Fiction We Live has concepts occurring throughout, along with the ironic song titles we’ve come to expect. The fivesome ups the ante on The Fiction We Live. The album gives listeners, both fanatical and casual, proof that music is the universal language we all speak. And that’s a fact. The Fiction We Live is at once sophisticated and scarring, smart without being too high concept and esoteric. This resonant album generates metalcore that strikes the chord with and speaks directly into the ears of impassioned hardcore, metal, punk rock and emo fans.

I love this CD! I own all of their records and I personally think this one is the best. I recommend it if you're new to FATA or you like any of their other records.

This CD is slammed all the time as not being original, or quite as good as "Too Bad Your Beautiful." It isn't as good as "Too Bad Your Beautiful," but few albums by any band are as goos. The Fiction we live is just a solid hardcore CD with a very different sound from it's predassor.

First album was simply amazing with great drum solos and gutiar riffs. Loved the lyrics and the girl with the pretty voice on song number 10 (Short Stories With Tragic Endings) was awesome. Then i get there new cd today and i listen to it all day and wondering what happen.? Not as many great drum solos and gutiar riffs. And the girl gets a whole song to herself. (I think that it would be better if she song with the band like she did in the first cd.) Until i listen to songs like 1,4,and 9. Then i hear the same old formula that FATA had in the first cd. It's obivous that this band has talent and there my 2nd favorite band i wish they would have every song like there old cd or like songs 1,4,9. (Reccomend for FATA fans) Anyways live forever FATA.

after hearing too bad you're beautful i was stunned that such a cd could have been made. this cd has just a tad bit in common with that cd. the drummer sings a hell of a lot more god it is slower. less kickass riffs. i was really disappointed in how different it sounded. too bad you're beautiful was a wonderful cd this one is not. i recommend Atreyu instead of this piece of shit cd. if you want to play frisbee get this cd if you want good music stay FAR away. man get too bad you're beautiful not this shit.

i was kinda excited to hear what this album would be like, with too bad your beautiful having so much in one album, i thought that they would take off from there on this one...well they didnt...there was time put into writting the tunes on tbyb, so many riffs and changes in each song, spanning through all types of music genres, although on this is one its like the wrote it in a week...its not that bad, just very mediocore and a shame that all the energy and potential seemed to disapate

The first clip i heard from this album sort of disapointed me, not that it was bad, by all means it was great, but it was not the FATA that i knew. FATA is one of my favorite bands, and Too Bad You're Beautiful is one the greatest disc i could ever have. If you have heard it you know what i mean. Fiction We Live is a definite change, there arent so many break-downs, it isnt as fast-paced, and there arent a million time-changes. None of this bothered me so much, but when Perry started screaming i was baffled, it sounded awesome, but it is so different. This is still a solid album and i listen to it many times a week. If this is what FATA are turning into, so be it, it will be great.

Well, it appears that there has been quite a change in the sound that is From Autumn to Ashes since we last heard from them in 2001 with their epic release "Too Bad You're Beautiful".

There seems to be something missing in "Fiction We Live", and my gut tells me it's the fury and technical mayhem that was consistent throughout "TBYB" which made my neck tingle and ass quiver. To me it feels like the musical diversity has been replaced with more emphasis on the vocal harmonies of drummer Francis Mark to increase the emotional feelings within the music. Sadly, this new approach does not go according to plan. The end result forced me to push the old skip button a couple of times to avoid those dodgy tracks, such as "No Trivia", "The Second Wrong Makes You Feel Right" and "I'm The Best At Ruining My Life". These tracks harbour a cringe-worthy "rock ballad" feel to the music, a real shame seeing as other songs on the albumn are complete gems. "Autumns Monologue" and "The Fiction We Live" bring out FATA's moving and expressive qualities, while "The After Dinner Payback", "Lilacs & Lolita", and "All I Taste Is What's Her Name" deliver a well balanced mixture of aggressiveness, intensity and poignant music that illustrates FATA perfectly.

If you are considering to take part in the audible voyages that FATA has to offer, I suggest you consult your musical tastes before selecting the albumns they have kindly provided for our enjoyment. If you like it hard, fast and maniacal with elements of heart-wrenching emotion, then go for "TBYB". But, if you are just starting to stray from the typical sound present in a number of "punk" bands today, and maybe you're looking for a bit of freshness and bite in music, then "FWL" is a good step in the broadening of your musical horizons.

I would offer "FWL" a rating of 3.5, but that's not available. So, I'm gonna stick by my guns and offer FATA's latest with an honest rating of 3 (it seems 4 would be a little too much).

just the words "FROM" "AUTUMN" "TO" "ASHES" say what needs to be said about this album. the drummer has offered alot more of his vocals to the disc giving it a more "pop-py" sound at some points but it f*****g rocks!! buy it right away you scrotum you!! i have to go now because i suck and im writing this review in the library and someone has just kicked me off my computer!
