My Saves the Day journal
I believe that every band has the right to change and grow. Some people who heard this album prior to release or heard one mp3 have deemed it a change in the wrong direction, and I feel that those people are not giving it an honest chance. So, having had this advance copy of the disc for a month prior to its release, I decided to listen to it often each week, and make a journal entry to see the progression of my opinions and observations from first listen to well-known album. This will hopefully let you all know if you will like it based on previous thoughts of the band's style and whether it will grow on you. Plus, journals are the in-thing now, right?
While the songs are slower, there are some hard hitters, and the melodies are already getting stuck in my head after the 4th listen. I don't think the album is terrible, but I still think less of it than "Stay What You Are" and "Through Being Cool" but I can definitely see how they progressed to this, to many people's chagrin.
The title track is my favorite so far, and while the intro scared me off at first and still seems out of place with its dissonance, the chorus makes up for it with it's catchiness and use of falsetto. I also dig the augmentation of the chorus melody in the bridge.
The closer, "Tomorrow Too Late" is another great song and a good end to the album, and the beginning of it sounds very Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour."
