Biography

Hard work, determination and success go hand and hand—and no one understands that better than STORY OF THE YEAR. In that spirit it should come as no surprise that these post-hardcore sensations decided to title their fourth full-length The Constant. However that doesn’t mean that the band’s latest disc isn’t a logical progression for St. Louis’ favorite breakout ... Read more in Amazon's Story Of The Year Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong debut album for this group February 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Story of the Year comes on strong with its debut album, "Page Avenue". This punk, emo/screamo group shows power, ability, and imagination in this fine album.
While emotionally intense music is common enough these days, Story of the Year carries it off powerfully. The screaming is not gratuitous, but happens at moments of emotional intensity, and the vocalist never loses sight of the song while doing so.
The strongest songs on the CD are the similarly titled, but very different, "Until the Day I Die", and "Anthem of Our Dying Day." Both songs (the video for the first is one of the extras on the enhanced CD) have dark themes, but are well sung and are emotionally powerful. The songs are well written, well thought out, and leave enough to the imagination to make the listener think. You may not understand what is being driven at the first time you listen to a given song, but it will come to you.
Other strong songs on the CD include "Dive Right In" and "Swallow The Knife", though the latter is musically quite similar to "Until the Day I Die"--though worth listening to on its own merits.
The extras on this enhanced CD are three behind the scenes videos, which help give you insight into this band, and also the music video for "Until the Day I Die", which is well worth seeing if you haven't seen it.
Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars In all honesty, the BEST cd I have ever owned September 21, 2003
By Brooke
Format:Audio CD
There aren't much words to describe this amazing cd, but I'll do my best. I'll list what was great about each song, and the best lyric from each also:
1.And the Hero Will Drown-I first heard this on a Warped Tour Compiliation cd, and I was definately hooked. This song has amazing energy.
"Intoxicating beauty tears everything down" 5/5
2.Until the Day I Die-This is currently my "song of the moment". I'm not sure where I heard this, but when I did, I looked it up on the computer right after it ended. This song is absolutely perfect in every single way.
"Should I bite my tongue till blood soaks my shirt?" 5/5 (Best song on album)
3.Anthem of our Dying Day-This track is just filled with pure emotion. The lyrics are so touching, which makes it an unbelievable song.
"I'd scream this song right in your face if you were here" 5/5
4.In the Shadows-Awesome track. I love the energy in the beginning of each verse on this song. It's breathtaking.
"In the shadows of our life, we can fall into the night unscarred" 4.5/5
5.Dive Right In-The intro and the first verse of this song are remarkable, but the chorus is 100 times better, if possible. The lyrics to this song are amazing.
"I could wave my arms and swim away, but never reach the shore" 4.5/5
6.Swallow the Knife-Absoultely touching song, it has an amazing melody and the drums on this track make the song. I'ts a bit more mellow than the other tracks, but it's still one of the best.
"You're connected to the heart, but tonight we'll set you free" 5/5
7.Burning Years-The chorus is great on this song, but what I like best on this song is the opening verse...its filled with crazy energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best new bands in 2003/2004 February 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is emo/screamo at its finest. I am trying to explain why this band is so good, but there are so many reasons running through my head that it is hard to make it into a well organized review.
First off, the layered guitars, drums, and other instruments/computer generated sounds are just sick. Most of the time when you listen to a CD, you think about things you would change about the song. That doesn't happen here...you just sit back and listen, while being amazed at how well all the sounds flow together. Not to mention that each song has multiple catchy riffs that don't just repeat over and over again. This CD is instrumentally one of my favorites of all time.
Then there are the lyrics and vocals. Someone else mentioned this in their review, but I feel it is important enough to reiterate...the screaming actually adds to the music. Too many screamo bands yell and scream as if they are running down a checklist and see that screaming is required to be an emo band.
Then, the lyrics have a much more mature attitude then most screamo bands. I guess if you are a 13 year old, this is a bad thing, but to me it seperates them from the pack. There was only one review I read that was negative, and he ripped on the lyrics citing "From here the city lights burn, like a thousand miles of fire." To me the line just by itself is good, but it needs to be heard with the rest of the song. When I hear that song, I picture him standing on top of a mountain overlooking a city. Anytime a song can give you a mental picture like that, the lyrics are doing something right. Just like all the instruments flow together perfectly, so do the lyrics from verse to chorus. You will understand when you hear them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with Finch, Glassjaw, Thrice, The Used, etc. October 15, 2003
By Kevin
Format:Audio CD
1 ...And The Hero Will Drown (5/5) metal verses and great chorus
2 Until The Day I Die 5/5 Good song on first 1,000 listens.kinda getting sick of it now but still good.
3 Anthem Of Our Dying Day 10/5 My favorite song still good after a million listens.
4 In The Shadows 10/5 Great really hard song. My other favorite.Best chorus on the cd.
5 Dive Right In 5/5 I love this song. It is unbelievable.
6 Swallow The Knife 4/5 Slow but dark.
7 Burning Years 5/5 Another fairly hard song. Chorus is a little cliche but the song is still nasty.
8 Page Avenue 3/5 I don't know...It's ok.
9 Sidewalks 3/5 Soft..Sounds like a slower Yellowcard song.
10 Divide And Conquer 4/5 Hard, weird pace but I like it a lot.
11 Razorblades 5/5 Nice song.
12 Falling Down 5/5 Third best song on the cd. Fast pace. Great guitar work on the bridge. It's cool to hear a little H2O, Goldfinger, and Youth Of Today on the cd. Great conclusion to a nasty cd.
__Great cd, good producing by John Feldman...I wish they re-recorded and added "light years away" to this cd. dl it it's a great song. Buy this cd.
