When Sunny Day Real Estate collapsed in early 1995, few would have predicted the impact the Seattle band's music would still be having over a decade later. Now, more than 15 years since Sub Pop released Sunny Day's landmark debut album Diary, the band's original lineup is reuniting this fall to deliver its emotionally charged epics for live audiences once again.

This, many people will say, is the album that spawned a thousand so-called "emo" bands. The influence of this album is undeniable, but the music itself (now a few years on) is still as powerful and emotional as the day I bought it. Guitars follow the tried and trusted quiet/loud dynamic - but there's far more going on here. Time signatures shift, overpinned by intricate basslines - Jeremy's voice is sometimes fragile and soothing, sometimes deranged, always fantastic. The playing on this album is nothing short of inspiring. Lyrically it's in my top 10 as well. This album also has some of the very best artwork I've seen... you really should buy the 12" as well so you can have the artwork bigger. :)

The album starts of with the amazing seven , to tell you the truth it goes on without a bad song. My personal Favourite is called Grendel. Jeremy Engiks voice sounds so tortured which blends in perfectly with the music, it starts off with slow Guitar work with the drums keeping a continuous rhythm but towards the middle the song breaks out of it's shell with the Guitar and drums working over time, Jeremy Engiks voice screams down the micro phone making my spine tingle.All I have to say is Jeremy Engik, Nate Mendel , William Goldsmith and Dan Hoerner,WELL DONE!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Diary" 12 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
"Diary" by Sunny Day Real Estate is just one of those albums that come along and change your whole way of listening to music. Seattle's original emotional-hardcore band turn out the best album of the genre. Each musician plays an equally important part in making the album what it is, William Goldsmith's drumming is mindblowing, Nate Mendel's complex bass guitar patterns are amazing, Dan Hoerner's and Jeremy Enigk guitar work leaves nothing desired, and Jeremy's vocals and poetically abstract, but fully emotionally felt lyrics leave you exasperated and going straight to play the whole album again. From the opener "Seven" to the closer "Sometimes", the album does not falter, it is simply a perfect document, or "Diary" of this band at their creative peak. A MUST BUY if there ever was one...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive 20 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
The debut album from American rock band Sunny Day Real Estate. It's dark, brooding and angry. It is also the music that inspired current-day bands such as Jimmy Eat World and Finch. Enigk's vocals are instantly recognisable, and match the music perfectly.

Apparently this is Emo music, if it is then it's the best kind of Emo music because it's nothing like the music people call Emo today. They may be Emo but they're also pretty progressive. Songs like Seven and Song About An Angel and Grendel gradually build up from quiet, hoarse musings to roaring, aggressive riffs and strained angry screams. Don't expect to get it first time round, but persevere and you'll see how special this band actually were. They sound wonderful, and this is one of the most important albums in history. Probably.
