Customer Reviews

Some people just don't understand.

Worse Than a Fairy Tale is the greatest album so far this year and has an amazing story line to it. It is about 12 murders that took place in Saylor Lake, Colorado from 1979-1980. Each song on this CD talks about a different murder. Danny Stillmans voice shows the intensity and panic of the situations throughout the CD. Most bands; to be concidered hardcore, must sceam a lot. Danny can sing all he wants and still show as much power and toughness as any other vocalist out there; scream or no scream. Overall a masterpiece of dark and deep lyrics, all to uncover an amazing story.

What are you talking about?!

Dearest listeners, It's safe to say that your expectations for an album from a band like Drop Dead are a little... shall we say, retarded. This band has made an effort to break the mold, obviously. And they have succeeded in doing just that. They have actually created a concept album that doesn't blow! and not to mention all the other parts of the album's story that you can't evn get with the record. the website,, is great. it takes you into the the songs, thus further into the minds of the characters in the story. I am nothing but impressed by their growth as musicians and songwriters. More power to them for 'allegedly' cutting out the screaming and breakdowns (did you ever notice that there is PLENTY of screaming to go around on the album? I sure did) and I hope that the band sells less copies of the album because of this... it will only seperate the "kids" from the fans. DD,G deserves a great deal of respect for their work on Worse than a Fairy Tale. If you appreciate hard working musicians and records that make you FEEL how much heart and soul the band put into it's creation... Worse than a Fairy Tale is hands down a must have. wurd

A Dissapointment or a growth....

For anyone who enjoyed In Vouge as much as i did, at first this album is going to be a disapointment, with barley any screaming at all and akward chord progressions and pretty much breakdownless, Ross Robinson as a producer has basically either made a band sound increadble (Norma Jean) or have made bands sound horrible (From First To Last) So his take on Drop Dead, Gorgeous is completley up to the listener to decide. Although the album may be very diffrent sounding, it shows the band growing as a band in an atempt to create an album that they could be rememberd for. Instead of making another cookie cutter hardcore/screamo band. So all in all, this album is worth the listen, and probably even worth the buy, but dont expect to hear the typical drop dead style breakdowns and screams, but to expect somthing new that will take a couple of listens to get use to.
