A few days ago, I was flipping through my ever expanding CD collection, and came accross one of my first "emo" CD's, Save the Day's "Stay What You Are." I decided to give my old favorite a spin. Within seconds of hearing Chris Conley slowly singing, "This song will become the anthem of your underground...." to a single guitar, I quickly remembered why this album used to be my favorite.
The album opens slowly with "At Your Funeral." A minute into the song the band just starts rocking out; filling you with energy and preparing you for the rest of the album. While this album is an emo classic, it's subject matter tends to stray away from the typical "the-girl-left-me-i'm-such-a-worthless-looser" type lyrics you hear on other emo albums. Yes, relationships are talked about on this album, but along with that are songs about depression, death, and anorexia. SWYA shows how much the band has matured since, "Through Being Cool," their previous, and in my opinion, better album. However, not only is this album more mature, but it's sound is more polished than on TBC.
Every song on this CD is catchy and well written. Another great quality that this album possesses is the fact that you can listen to it any time of day in whatever mood your in. I disagree with those that say that STD sold out on this album. While it does have a poppier, more radio-friendly sound than their previous efforts, it proves to us that STD isn't afraid to expirament with their sound, which I believe is a quality that all bands should possess.
I highly recommend buying this CD, it's worth whatever you pay for it. I guarantee that it will be in your CD player for a long time.

Saves the Day has risen to become one of the most popular acts on the Vagrant Records label and is headlining their Vagrant Across America summer tour. Such popularity is not a mean feat when their label-mates include the likes of punk mainstay Face to Face, and Hey Mercedes, the reconstitution of emo gods Braid. Their first album, on Equal Vision Records, `Can't Slow Down', was true to their Lifetime-esque, New Jersey roots; delivering pop-punk with heart. Their second album (the first on Vagrant), `Through Being Cool', showcased the band's more polished sound, with more hooks and lyrics that were more subtle, though they didn't lose an inch of feeling. Truth be told, they had grown up. In the time between their second and third albums, Saves the Day rode the wave of unforeseen popularity, joining several of Vagrant's summer tours and releasing an acoustic EP in the winter (`I'm Sorry I'm Leaving') that was merely a taste of what was to come.
And now that sound is here. Without false modesty, Saves the Day delivers an album that actually lives up to its own hype. From the first timid notes where lead singer Chris Connelly effortlessly emotes, "This song will become the anthem of your underground," it becomes evident that this album is dependant on his voice, his words. The poetry of this album is clearly as far above `Through Being Cool' as that album was to `Can't Slow Down'. The upbeat tunes contrast heavily with the self-destructive lyrics which betray an inner fragility and sensitivity ("See You").
The stand-out track is clearly "Cars and Calories". It has a different sound from the rest of the album, which looks through a window into another's life, instead of inward.

This is the follow-up album after Through Being Cool. I wasn't sure what direction they would take after Through Being Cool but i am very glad they decided to be like this. This album is filled with melodic anthems that are so wonderful to sing along with. The lyrics are awesome once again. THough it's not as fast as Through Being Cool, it is just as awesome. The lyrics and catchy melodies make up for it. It's a good thing.

"At Your Funeral" (9.9/10)-This seems to be the song that gets everybody hooked into Saves The Day. ANd how could it not? The guitar is catchy, the lyrics are amusing. Everything else is fine. It's a great song.

"See You" (9.5/10)- This is also a super song. Great lyrics. Very catchy. "You want to know who i really am? Yeah so do I."

"Cars & Calories" (9.8/10)- This is such a good song. The lyrics are AMAZING. THey are about girls and their eating disorders and such. Just listen to the song. THe lyrics and the guitar, along with everything else is just great.

"Certain Tragedy" (9.7/10)- This song is catchy as well. Lyrics here are unbelievable. The guitar is great. "And i can finally see that the further we go, we're only treading ground, that we already know." And also, "I could write you a note, sing you a song, or empty out your trash. And buy a bucket full of diamonds but even the most beautiful of all roses must someday crumble to dust and fade away, it's certain tragedy."

"Jukebox Breakdown" (9.7/10)- I love this song. Isn't it weird that this song, number 5, starts off with drums, just like in Through Being Cool, with "Holly Hox, Forget Me Nots"? I don't know. I find it cool. ANyways, it is a fun song to sing along with. Very catchy. The riffs are pretty good.

"Freakish" (9.9/10)- I LOVE this song.
