Hard work, determination and success go hand and hand—and no one understands that better than STORY OF THE YEAR. In that spirit it should come as no surprise that these post-hardcore sensations decided to title their fourth full-length The Constant. However that doesn’t mean that the band’s latest disc isn’t a logical progression for St. Louis’ favorite breakout ... Read more in Amazon's Story Of The Year Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Story of the Year - In The Wake Of Determination 16 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Following their 2003 debut, Page Avenue, Story of the Year's new album hopes to keep their now-very healthy fan base.
The first thing that you'll notice is that this is different to Page Avenue. Gone are the melodic slow songs such as "Anthem Of Our Dying Day" and "Sidewalks". Forget the pop-like sing-a-long songs like "Razorblades". Welcome the heavier, more upbeat songs. Don't get me wrong, Page Avenue was amazing, but just because you loved that - don't think you're automatically going to like this.
The album kicks off with the loud "We Don't Care Anymore", and almost immediately Dan is screaming ' second chance tonight', and it's at this point that you know you're in for one hell of a ride. Throughout the album are loads of catchy, kick-ass riffs and fantastic vocal work (such as in the last minute or so of "Take Me Back"), ranging from screams to chants to a softer, more harmonic style. Lyrics such as 'Stereo, stereo, tired bullsh*t dressed in gold' reveal how Story of the Year feel. The lyrics are fairly personal, with this particular example refering to the trash that most people churn out (i.e. hip-hop all sounds the same etc) and how the band feel about it.
The only slow song on the album (excluding the 'hidden' acoustic track) is Sleep, which has an eerie feel before reaching a climax in which the chorus is sung a bit louder and in a slightly higher-pitched voice. The rest focus more on the type of music that gets you jumping around pretending to play your imaginary electric guitar in front of a thousand people... Well, maybe just me then :p
Either way - don't be fooled into thinking this is some sort of cheesy American 80's trash that's all 'rock and hardcore'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different indeed!! 12 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well, a very different album from Page Avenue. This is generally down to the fact that SOTY ditched the producer who signed them (Goldfinger's John Feldmann) and replaced him with a new producer in the form of Steve Evetts. Inevitably changing from a producer of a punk band to a more metal orientated producer has obviously changed the sound of this five piece band!
SOTY Sound so much different to their Page Avenue expliots, but this album certainly delivers big style and listen to "five against the world"! What a solo!
They have not completely gone off the beaten track as they have songs called sleep and taste the poison, which sound very much like the material on Page Avenue! I can't diss this album like a previous review i read! It was inevitable the route they wanted to go down, so this album is very much what I imagined!!
Good work guys!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy, Truley Amazing!! 12 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you have Page Avenue then you will know how amazing that is! But on the 31 of Oct 2005 Story of the year released their new album In The Wake Of Determination which they are currently promoting on the Taste Of Chaos Tour, and believe me its amazing, one listen to the album and you will be hooked for sure, I have had it since its release and it hasn’t been out of the CD Player!!! If you haven’t heard any of there new songs but know their older songs like “Until the day I die” and your hooked then the same will happen again!!
If you still haven’t bought Page Avenue then that’s also a must with amazing songs such as “until the day I die”, “In the shadows”, “Sidewalks” and much much more
So what you waiting for Buy buy buy!!! :-D
