Four years after the release of the angst-driven “Under The Boards”, Saves The Day returns with a more positive outlook on life. “Daybreak” starts off with the five-part title track that hops from style to style, pretty much spanning the band’s entire career.
The same can be said about the following tracks. “Let It All Go” is poppy in the way poppy used to sound on “Stay What You Are”, still my favorite Saves The Day album to date. If you’re looking for something a little more crunchy however, try “Z” on for size.
2011 finds Saves The Day as a band who still doesn’t shy away from the occasional experiment, but who at the same time feel very much at ease with who they are. Honestly, one couldn’t ask for a more fitting closing piece to a trilogy of albums that started with “Sound The Alarm” and “Under The Boards”.
