A Static Lullaby - Faso Latido
Something must have happened to A Static Lullaby from their transfer from Fearless Records over to Sony. Faso Latido is an absolutely terrible album, way less than average. The world waited for the release of this sophomore album after the groundbreaking ...And Don't Forget To Breathe. Demo's had leaked over the internet, such as the track Radio Flyers Last Journey. When the track was released, people were excited and couldn't wait to hear the final product. It had never crossed anyone's mind that the demo could possibly go downhil.
Stand Up was the first song and video from the new album Faso Latido to hit the airwaves. When the end of the song came, I personally found myself shocked. The song was terrible, but curiousity led me to pick up the album. I thought that maybe they had to make more mainstream music so they could promote themselves a little better. Sadly enough, that wasn't the case. The style of A Static Lullaby had changed a bit, with a little less sceaming and more clear vocals from their bassist. The vocals were horrible.
Radio Flyers Last Journey had gone from a great demo, to a piece of crap song. This to me will be considered the worst album that A Static Lullaby could ever make. It would be very difficult to get any lower than an album like this. I urge all A Static Lullaby fans to completely skip over this album. It's a complete five steps back from ...And Don't Forget To Breathe, and a complete waste of money.
If you haven't heard of A Static Lullaby before and you're more into the mainstream type of pop rock, then by all means check out this album. But even then, I wouldn't suggest you buy it. Stream it at the most, but never pay the amount of money being asked for it.

A Static Lullaby's sophomore release. A surprising disappointment from this group of guys. The demos were good and led everyone to great anticipation of tis album, but when this album actually released, it set a lot of ASL fans off. This was just a terrible album. The vocals were supposed to mature, and seemed to in the demos, but when this was finally mastered and released, the vocals seemed to have gone back about twenty steps. The hardcore feel the '...And Dont Forget To Breate' had definitely just vanished with this pathetic excuse for a sophomore album. Completely skip the album if you are trying to get into the groove of ASL. Don't even look at this album, it's a waste upon your ears.
