Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the third album from the Los Angeles Alt-Rock band. Self-titled, the 12-song collection was produced by veteran producer/mixer/engineer Neal Avron, who has also worked with Weezer, The Wallflowers, Fall Out Boy, and Everclear, among many others. The band recorded the album in early 2009 at the Boat Studio in Los Angeles. Say Anything is the first studio album from the band since its critically acclaimed 2007 Defense Of The Genre.

Say Anything emerged into the public eye with Is a Real Boy, a very experimental album with bizarre, sometimes totally self-indulgent lyrics that were also very cool and interesting surrounded in punk hooks and musical experimentation. Their followup, the 2-disc In Defense of the Genre, written by a newly sober Max Bemis, featured much more to-the-point lyrics in yet another incredibly-written album that, while not every song was a winner, looking at it as a whole, was pretty much a masterpiece. It was a look into the man's head as he went through a very dark time of his life dealing with his mental health, an abusive relationship, and his recovery.

And now, we have the 3rd CD, the self-titled Say Anything, and this is their easiest to listen to, and most 'to the point' CD yet. Featuring no profanity whatsoever (a first for this band, which typically loaded their songs with curse words,) clocking in at 46 minutes (noticeably shorter than Is a Real Boy and around 40 minutes (!) shorter than In Defense of the Genre) and featuring a much more up-beat tone, this CD seems like a completely new version of the band. Max Bemis was married last year and his love for his wife dominates the CD, (as has his re-affirmed faith in a higher power, for better or worse) resulting in much less bitterness in the tracks.

But this is still Say Anything, there's no doubt about that. The lyrics are still extremely relatable, funny, challenging, deep, and pretty much any praise I could possibly give them. Max's voice is the same way, and he continues to make this band one of the genre's most innovative and fun.

Fed to Death; 5/5; The intro to this CD, and one of my favorite songs on it. The second this comes on, Say Anything fans will feel right at home.

Say Anything's previous work was spectacular. I love it, I really do. But there are only so many songs you can write about mental illness, breakups, drugs, and being generally angry before you have to mix it up a little. They were terrific songs, don't get me wrong, but it was clearly time for something new. Say Anything still keeps a lot of these topics, but they took a new and better look at these themes, while exploring new ones.

Faith comes in a lot more heavily on this album than previous ones, although there have been religious references in most of Say Anything's work. Love is another theme that carries through. Not lust. Not love/hate relationships. Love. Which makes perfect sense since Max Bemis - the singer, main lyricist, and one of maybe two constant members - has recently been married. Both of these are refreshing changes of pace. "Cemetery," a song that touches on both of those things, is probably the best track of the album.

Some of the things that stayed the same - thankfully - are the self deprecating humor. In "Mara and Me" the band calls themselves out on their constant focus on how much the world sucks, but then goes in an only slightly more hopeful direction. "Hate Everyone" is exactly what the title implies, but is far from humorless. "Do Better" criticizes another's apathy. "Death for my Birthday" is about the timeless lesson of appreciating what you have. Then there's "Less Cute," a sad look back at the obsession for a hurtful ex lover. And then there's "Property." It's a disturbing song and the kind of look at possessiveness and entitlement that Say Anything manages to find some dark humor in while still maintaining the seriousness of the topic.

This is a new direction for Say Anything, but they are still very much the sane band. They're just growing up and evolving and trying new things. This is some of their best work and I highly recommend it.

If you love Say Anything, this album is perfect. I think this one and "...Is a Real Boy" are my favorites.
I don't know what else to say other than Max Bemis is a lyrical genius.

Love it! Comes with 2 records. The case is very cool it flips open like a book. Comes with 2 12 x12 papers in each sleeve with the song and lyrics and additional pictures. There are about 3-4 songs on each sides of the records. Very cool album and awesome music! :) would recommend to any Say Anything fan!

Max Bemis has an amazing voice. This album is creative, different and catchy. In my opinion, catchy is good. This album is not like other bands today that are just crappy. It just sounds good. If you like this type of music or any of their other albums, this is definitely worth a listen.

This and "...Is a Real Boy" are my two favorite Say Anything albums. The spontaneous time signature changes and abstract lyrics of "Mara and Me" are the standout track.
