Biography

"With great power comes great responsibility." Surely a meaningful quote, but who can take credit for it? Thomas Jefferson? Sigmund Freud? Socrates? Nope. Spider-Man. It goes to show how something sort of profound can spring from an unlikely source. Any reluctant underachiever can make a difference: nerdy dude who gets bit by a mutant spider or awkward bipolar kid in a vaguely ... Read more in Amazon's Say Anything Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the Best Songs Ever Recorded 7 Feb 2013
By Todd Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
I, like many other long-time Say Anything fans, have been waiting years for an official release of Baseball, Menorah Mejora, Junior Varsity, and Doormroom Demos, what many consider to be some of the prolific song-writer/lyrical mad genius Max Bemis' best releases. Now that it is finally out after all this time, the question hanging on SA fans' lips is "Was it worth the wait?", especially with the songs all available online to listen to all the while?

The answer is a resounding YES!! This is by far the album that I am proud to say that I own of all the CD's I have collected over the years. Having pre-ordered the album I also received a Say Anything t-shirt and an autograph from Bem-Dawg himself (all for under $35! Less than a t-shirt alone at a concert venue!). Even without these bonuses to the package, All My Friends Are Enemies includes three discs of pure unadulterated teenage angst that I will dissect by CD.

Disc 1: Baseball

This is my personal favorite album of all time to listen to when I'm in "one of those moods," if not my favorite of all time. I have been absolutely enamored by this album since I first heard the first track, "Colorblind" years ago. "Showdown at P-Town" is one of the most relatable high school anthems ever recorded. "Into the Night" is as empowering as it is heartbreaking. And the album doesn't let up until it's final track "Where the Hurt Is", which has a few minutes of silence before the masterful piano piece "All Choked Up", recorded on a master piano by Bemis in one take! This CD alone would have been worth purchasing for the price of the CD for me.

Disc 2: Menorah Mejora/Dormroom Demos

Having merged these two releases, the Menorah Mejora EP (consisting of the first 7 tracks on the CD) and Dormroom Demos together was initially off-putting, but ultimately understandable as they both share a few tracks with each other. Needless to say, the higher quality MM versions are the ones that made the final cut. This CD offers some of Say Anything's best (and most iconic) tracks such as "A Walk Through Hell", "Try To Remember, Forget", "I Am a Transylvanian", "Baseball, but Better", "Signal the Rifleman", "Nudity" and a lot more! This CD is a fantastic listen!

Disc 3: Junior Varsity and Rarities

This third disc is the only one to include a very recent recording, an acoustic performance of "Baseball, but Better". There are both the classics ("Sappy", "The Presidential Suite", "Thoughts on a Liberal Education") as well as some tracks I was not expecting, such as "Anti-Anti" which is a great parallel to Say Anything's latest release as of this review (Anarchy, My Dear). Some more tracks I had not heard prior to this release were the acoustic version of "All My Friends", the song "Consigliore" originally written for Baseball (with some wonky vocals recorded within the last year...don't worry, they grow on you) as well as Brett Gurewitz mix of "A Boston Peace", one of my favorite Dormroom Demo songs vastly improved (for the most part, there is one guitar line missing here which drives me nuts here).

There is also a fun booklet included with early pictures of Max Bemis and Say Anything (then known as sayanything)with notes from Max himself reminiscing on this early period of his career. Overall, as you can surely tell by the 5 Star review, this album is more than worth the price and one of the best starting points for a budding Real Boy. While many of the songs are very lo-fi and amateur-ish in their recording process, that is half their charm, along with the brilliant lyrics and their passionate delivery. I can't help but feel bad for Max when he sings about his best friends ditching him in high school, but without them we may never have gotten this amazing CD, and Say Anything wouldn't be the band it is today.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Anything Max Bemis touches is gold" 27 Jan 2013
By jeddywoo - Published on Amazon.com

As a friend once said "Anything Max Bemis touches is gold" Rings true from day one. Great album. Great Band (Period) whether this be the latter, middle, or "Early Rarities"

I am writing the review first off as a truly biased fan. With that said, This album has been long awaited. How long? Longer than the last 3 studio albums. As soon as the realase of "Was a real boy/ Is.." fans soon found that finding a legal place to get these songs was hard.

This release its self has 45 tracks on it. Brimming with the raw angst and unique song writing of Say Anythings brain child Max Bemis. This early listen into the band is sure to give you some new favorite songs. That is, if you have not been listing to all of them online on youtube like me forever. Either way a buy and keep in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Diamond in the Rough, but still amazing! 18 May 2013
By Willie Sommerville - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I discovered that Say Anything was releasing their early albums, I was absolutely ecstatic! I never got around to hearing their earliest stuff, I discovered the band with ...Is A Real Boy. This album blew away all of my expectations! Their sound is rough, but still so amazing. Max Bemis is a wordsmith and it definitely shows even in the beginning. Getting 3 albums worth of music at a great price is just great. I'm gonna go and listen to this album again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing 23 May 2013
By Robert W. Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ever since I bought this compilation- both Baseball and Menorah Majorah have not left my CD changer. I especially like MackDaddy and tracks 11-15 on Baseball. I simply LOVE "A Walk Through Hell" on Menorah. These tracks are so catchy and just show how much of a genius Max is. For about $20.00 this collection is a bargain. Baseball was highly limited in it's original release (only about 300 copies) so it's nice that they finally released this set to Say Anything's adoring fans who have long awaited to own copies of their older albums. Buy it without a second thought and be amazed!
