Too Bad You're Beautiful

Too Bad You're Beautiful is the first full-length release from Long Island-based metalcore band From Autumn to Ashes. The album is unique in that it features the dual vocals of Benjamin Perri and drummer Francis Mark. Perri provides the hardcore-esque shouts while Mark sings and occasionally contributes background screams. This style was very innovative at the time, and earned the band widespread praise. The album was reissued in 2005 with the Sin, Sorrow, and Sadness demo as bonus tracks at the end.

  • The spoken dialogue at the beginning of "Take Her To The Music Store", which goes "You break my heart into a thousand pieces and say it's because I deserve better?" and the spoken dialogue at the end of "Reflections", which goes "I can't stand it anymore. When I'm with you I feel like I'm nothing. I feel like am nothing. Thats why I flinch when you touch me, Why I never touch you why I don't even think of it 'cause when I do it only reminds me I am not good enough." Both quotes are taken from the break-up of Joey and Pacey in the Teen Drama Dawson's Creek and feature in the episode Promicide.
  • "Take Her to the Music Store" is a reference to "getting fucked against one's will". Gross brought equipment to a local Long Island music store, Murphy's Music, for repair, only to get charged for labor expenses with them. They applied the title to a song about their friend's rape because their friend was literally "fucked against her will".It has also been said during stage banter at the Looney Tunes show/live album that the song is about a friend unknowingly getting ripped off on bad music equipment at Long Island's "Murphy's Music." The term "taken to the music store" became a slang amongst the band for getting "owned".
