          The album is pretty under rated. It is the pet project of cursive anD bright eyes front men. The album is deeply political and resonates with the major issues Americans have faced in the last decade. With the state of the political climate today it's an album that still is relevant and has a pretty strong allure when you look at the concept in name.
          Desaparecidos were the Chilean dissidents who disappeared when Pinochet took control of the military and over threw it's democratically elected President.
          Many people in countries where you're rich enough to speak out go missing. It's a testament to places that don't even have that luxury. America is deeply blessed and clearly there is
          something wrong with it today, this album tries to capture those feelings. It's a solid effort and a great blend between two talented song writers. If you happen to own this on Vinyl it's a limited piece as there are no plans for reissues at this time and most people who bought this as kids didn't take into account it's the only full length release for this band meaning only a moderate amount will be in NM condition. Also take note at the title 'Read Music, Speak Spanish" they hit the nail on the head regarding the immigration commentary long before the financial meltdown provoked a scapegoat for the loss of jobs. The album isn't epic but certainly deserves merit.
