There's something almost sad about a band that can write lyrics with such dark and depressing undercurrents, and yet, Saves the Day disguise them within music of such sounds of contentment and pulled together harmonies that you may not initially notice what really lies under the music. "Stay what you Are" did, in the bands own words, "render me freakish and dazed" the more I listened to it. I really did not know what to make of such young men who appeared to have gone through so much heartache and have so much hatred to the past. And yet, whatever their reasons, they have constructed such an inspiring and all-together album, the reasons don't really seem all that important anymore. This is a record, which every alternative music fan should have in their collection, whether you listen to it every day, or even once a month. It will open your eyes to a new perspective of free-style talent in which cunningly disguised lyrics are just as important as the rhythms themselves.
