Ok, so tonight i got Through being cool and i haven't been so excited about a band in ages, why didn't i check 'em out earlier !?

I love their poppy sound but they have very aggressive guitar parts and it sounds amazing, some songs are really emotional too, and they are awesome.

So, i'm gonna buy all their albums around xmas time now !

Them and TSL have ressurected my love for pop-punk.

What are their other albums like ?

I have In Reverie. It's alright. I've heard a few of their other songs from my friends, and I like them a lot better than the stuff that's on IR.

At Your Funeral is a masterpiece, it was the first song I heard by Saves the Day and since then I have loved them. I just recently got the full album of Stay What You Are and today got Through Being Cool and they are one amazing band.

Through Being Cool is their best album. It's one of my favorite albums of all time. I'd say go for Stay What You Are next.

Hands down, one of the best pop punk bands ever.

Cobert was telling me to download them last night. I downloaded Through Being Cool and In Reverie. I have listened to both CDs each once, and I think I'm going to give them another listen now. I like their sound though.

I fucking love them. One of my favourite bands. I have Through Being Cool and I also have Stay What You Are. Everyone should look out for my FA on them, December 23rd.

I couldn't stand them some years ago, maybe now it's time to try and get into them.

I checked them out twice and I didn't like them, and on the third time I checked them out I liked them, and now I love them.

Saves The Day pretty much changed every album, but they can cause its pretty much expected of them. They change so well that it always feels like Saves The Day. It doesnt matter if your listening to Through Being Cool or In Reverie. You know its Saves The Day. It sucks that Chris and Dave are the only original band members. I was sad when Eben left. Him and Mark Hoppus are the reasons why i play bass. Curious to see how their new bassist compairs on their tour with Senses Fail and The Early November. Saves The Day is one of those bands that comes along every once in a while that just really sticks out. This is my opinion but a lot might agree with me, that Saves The Day is one of those bands that is just all around fantastic. A band you can listen to for hours and days and weeks, and just never get tired of it. One of those bands that wether you like punk, or just rock and roll period, you will like them. I can see Saves The Day being around for a long long time. They got signed around when they were freshmen in highschool, so they gotta be good right?

I like these guys quite a bit, probably my favorite current pop-punk band, along with the Descendents.

'At Your Funeral' was an ace song when i liked them back in the day.

I like that song. It starts out slow, and the vocals used to annoy me, but then it gets faster and more emotional, I love it.

I, too, love the lyrics.

Everything seemed a little easier
when we werent one hundred miles apart
The person across from me sitting on a train seat
reminded me of you
And i looked out past her cheeks
through the glass light conduit
But the sun had sunk already, disappeared into New Jersey
Oh Why dont they have phones on these things?

And the bass is cool.

Look at my screen name!

My favorite song is my sweet fracture- Saves the day is my favorite band of all time.

Right now, im concentrating on learning how to play all their songs on guitar. Its difficult because most of the tabs blow. Any guitar players into saves the day that like to tab things out? Im working on shoulder to the wheel (great song!)

Ebens bass lines are amazing, and he plays fingerstyle.

Saves the day absolutely rule. Ive bought all their albums and even have the acoustic ep in original. You cant choose if you like this band by 1 album, every single 1 is different:

Cant Slow Down has a kind of heavy punk sound to it, i love this even tho i grew out of punk long ago.

Through Being Cool is the pop-punkish album, absolutely amazing album.

Stay What you are is a masterpiece, kinda has a post-punk feel to it

In Reverie to me is their best album, although not many people like it, i love it and im happy they changed their sound. It has an indie rock feel to it

And Ups and Downs: Early Recordings and B-Sides, only for the hardcore fans of saves the days, this album basicially covers their whole career, and the Jessie and my Whetstone live version just blew me away.

And word is from the saves the day camp is that their new album is on the way. Who knows what kind of album it will be? We shall see...

10-28-2005, 03:35 PM

Saves The Day is absolutely genius. The lyrics are completely amazing. Even if you hate the music you should just look up the lyrics to read.

Also I would recommend getting a CD pre-In Reverie to get used to the voice. If you pick up In Reverie as your first Saves The day album then it will take some getting used too at first.(To the same extent as Coheed And Cambria takes some getting used to.)It's easier to just ease in with a prior album since In Reverie shows the most "whiny-ness" in his voice.

Highly recommended though.

when i met them at a show they seemed to be heavily on LSD
and that wouldnt suprise me with amazing lyrics like these:

When do I get to wake up to you?
Tonight I can't forget that I've got these open wounds
It's such a drag
I can't forget you've gone
My ribs have parted ways
They said, We're not going to protect this heart you have.
Woah hey, what can I do?
My lungs are breathing open air
And my spleen is dripping from my pants
