Bayside has come a long way while keeping themselves away from the radiowaves. I respect a band who can make and write good music and not push it towards the radio stations. Too much popularity can be catastrophic. Right off the bat this cd caught my attention. I like the use of guitars and the lyrics feel more real and less poppy than most music nowadays. Not quite emo or punk or rock. It's a little of each without being to much like any of them. Songs 1,2,3 and 9 stand out for me.
I would recommend this to a friend
