We Are Only What We Feel
NoNoNo

Trevor McNevan has moved on from a Thousand Foot Krutch record to a new FM Static record. And this time, instead of exploring a complex theme record, the band has opted for a set of guilty pleasure pop tracks that will make anyone tap their feet. Tracks one through ten on the new album, “My Brain Says Stop, But My Heart Says Go” have uncanny hooks to them that songwriters by that trade only couldn’t come up with. Sometimes, they’re a little over the top “F.M.S.T.A.T.I.C.” makes me look around the room to make sure nobody notices what I’m listening to, but I’m still enjoying it. That’s where the whole guilty pleasure comes into play. This FM Static album, the third FM Static album competes with the first album, an album that a lot of people latched on to. It’s a great album filled with great songs. “Last Train Home” is easily the project’s best song to date. “U Don’t Know Me Like That” sounds like the ‘I want to fight’ song, but really there’s more to it than that. And “Cinnamon & Lipstick” has Trevor the 80’s style power ballad. FM Static’s “My Brain Says Stop, But My Heart Says Go” is the project’s best to date. McNevan displays a switch-like ability between his two bands that seemingly can’t be replicated by anyone other than himself.
