Deranged and Desperate


Life has its share of ups and downs and no one knows that better than Saves The Day frontman Chris Conley. For the past seventeen years Conley has been bearing his soul and reinventing his musical identity with each successive step, a process that is clearly culminating with Saves The Days seventh full-length Daybreak. The third part of a trilogy that also includes 2006’s Sound The Alarm ... Read more in Amazon's Saves the Day Store

Isn't it great when a young, rookie band comes along that not only makes incredibly catchy music, but knows their instruments really well too. That is exactly what Saves The Day is. They make an incredibly satisfying combo with their Pop-Punk, with an Emo twist music style. The guitar playing and drumming is very memorable, and Chris sings with an extra accented punk voice that really leads the band. You should definately buy this if you like A New Found Glory, Slick Shoes, The Get Up Kids, MxPx, or Craig's Brother.

5.0 out of 5 stars changed my life! December 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i bought this cd about 6 months ago after i heard it in a friends car and its remains to this day the most incredible cd i own. singer chris conleys lyrics are honest and expressive and his voice his soulful with that extra punk rock flare that could easily be compared to lifetime. but saves the day is in a class by themselves, not at all a carbon copy of anyone. blindfolded and 3 miles down reduce me to tears every time i listen to them...and they rock in concert, i've seen em twice at st. andrews in college park, md. buy this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Saves the Day release. Period June 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
No other way to put it, really. This is what the band encapsulated. While they are growing up and experimenting with more melodic tendencies, the band gained it's rabid cult following through an aggressive yet emotional brand of typical punk rock. While Through Being Cool had a modest hit with "Shoulder to the Wheel" and was immensely popular, Can't Slow Down is a perfect and overwhelming example of everything that the band initially stood for.
Combining Chris' most powerful lyrics to date and the most aggressive and powerful songwriting of any of their releases, Can't Slow Down is a staple of the emo-punk trend that has been sweeping across the country. Chris' normally viceral and corporeal lyrics are at his teenage best, combining his heartbreak with his idealistic dreams, his impassioned callings and disappointed stories to create a perfect picture of his life at the time. Ted and David's guitar riffing take the typical modern-punk level and are integral to the emotional ferocity of the CD, and the early stages of the Eben and Bryan rhythm section are in solid roots. Technique and musically, this might be their most complete album, even if it is their most juvenile.
As Saves the Day expands their fanbase across the country, this CD will always be a hallmark of their sound and, in my opinion, their strongest and most powerful release ever. Songs like "Jodie," "The Choke," and "Sometimes, New Jersey" are proof of that, staples of their live set and just increadible songs for such a young band.
In short, if you're just getting into Saves the Day, I would recommend this CD over the newer ones in an instant. It's essential for even the casual fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok........... September 12, 2001
By Alucard
Format:Audio CD
Well, I can't be too hard on these guys, it's their debut cd and thery are only like 17. Still, this cd isn't very amazing, it's only ok. I don't know why many people think this is their best cd, their next two cds, Through Being Cool and Stay What You Are blow this out of the water. Can't Slow Down suffers greatly from many problems with uneven guitaring that's drowning out the vocals, a very confused bass player, and drumer who dosen't know when to hit the snare. Still, like every other band, it's their first cd and it's raw. This dosen't make it bad, it's just that there is plenty of room that's left for improvement.
The cd opens up with "Deciding", a fast and down to the point track. It's a good song, infact, it's the reason I bought this cd. However, I only heard it on the 30 second sound clips, and I sounded like a great song. So, I rushed out to get the cd. To my dismay, when I played "Deciding" in my cd player, I heard an uneven, sloppy track. Still, I did enjoy it, and do think it is a good song.
The rest of the cd is the same way, it's conserned with staying fast and dosen't really care how it sounds in the end. This really hurts the cd badly. However, if you give this cd time, and I mean lots of time, it will eventually start to grow on you, but still, It leaves the listener just unsatisfied.
I really wouldn't get this cd unless you are a huge fan of theirs. I reccomend either Through Being Cool or Stay What You Are before this. If you want a good, fast emo-punk cd, check out Allister's Dead Ends and Girlfriends.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Jersey Asks: Another LIFETIME? June 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This was the debut album that established STD as a force to be reckoned with. I had the liberty of catching them on tour playing all of these songs just before "Through Being Cool" came out. They toured with Farside, Fastbreak, and did the Boston date with Kid Dynamite. Most of the other bands are disbanded now.
This album, while lacking the shiny and clean production of the next "Through Being Cool" album, is an emotional rollercoaster. It is much more raw and intense than later stuff. They have mellowed out a lot, but have really kept being innovative and playing consistently well live. This, the first full chapter in the Saves The Day story, unfolds like many debut albums do. It's definitley an interesting album, especially in comparison with "Stay What You Are". You'd swear they're two completely different bands.
Highlights include "Three Miles Down", and "Deciding" - which I couldn't get out of my head for months after seeing them perform live. Also "Always Ten Feet Tall" and "Blindfolded" are quite catchy and energetic. This album is very much in the style of Lifetime's "Jersey's Best Dancers".
I do highly recommend this album, especially for fans of Fastbreak, "Through Being Cool"-era Saves The Day, and of course, fans of Lifetime.
"Stop me before I say too much..." Saves The Day
