Life has its share of ups and downs and no one knows that better than Saves The Day frontman Chris Conley. For the past seventeen years Conley has been bearing his soul and reinventing his musical identity with each successive step, a process that is clearly culminating with Saves The Days seventh full-length Daybreak. The third part of a trilogy that also includes 2006’s Sound The Alarm ... Read more in Amazon's Saves the Day Store

Product Description

The third album from fast-rising punk stars Saves The Day, Stay What You Are is something of a milestone. In an age where sensitive punkboys are 10-a-penny, truly memorable emo albums are few and far between--but in just over 30 minutes, these three young New Jersey men reinvigorate the genre with nothing but a tight grip on the emotional rollercoaster and an eye for a good tune. Throughout, frontman Chris Conley's vocals are high but certain, vulnerable yet assured--and the music complements his delivery tightly, segueing between thrashy punk froth and passages of unexpectedly florid tenderness. The opening "At Your Funeral" cleverly shrouds its serious message--the memory of a late friend--in the language of a bullish punk scenester's boast that "This song will become / The anthem of your underground". Still, Conley sells his band too short: the likes of "Certain Tragedy" and "See You" combine the mainstream nous of Weezer with the sort of nu-punk histrionics in a way that should appeal to everyone from pop-punk fans to dedicated fanzine writers. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you... 6 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Okay, i bought this album having only heard 'at your funeral'. When i first put it in i admit I found it hard to get into it (just like everyone of this bands albums) but when i did it is absolutly BRILLIANT! Any genuine lover of good music will like this, every track is brilliant but stand out tracks for me are 'at your funeral', 'see you', 'certain tragedy', 'as your ghost takes flight' and lastly 'this is not an exit'. All the tracks are very catchy with clever lyrics and i rate this album as one of my favourites ever!

Buy this album! You can't go wrong!

Also, if you like this CD, check out 'Say Anything'!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Stay what you are" 24 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern day masterpiece surely. 7 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
I took a bit of a risk when i purchased this, because i didnt really enjoy one of their previous releases, "dont slow down", but when i first listened to "stay what you are", i realised how much they had evolved as a band. this really is a beautiful album, the lyrics are clever and the every chorus is insanely catchy. Along with The Ataris "end is forever", this is the best realease of 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brill 12 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
Having never heard anything by Saves The Day before, I was dubious of how they'd impress me. I like to think I have an open mind toward music (I bought Dookie having never heard it), and Saves The Day certainly proves to me that bands like this can make great music. Despite never having heard Saves The Day previously, I have to say that I found myself unable to get their songs out of my head. Freakish and As Your Ghost Takes Flight particularly stick in my mind as two of the most catchy tunes out there

5.0 out of 5 stars my favourite album.......EVER 18 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the first emo record I ever bought, way back in 2002. Since then I have worked up a huge collection of really brilliant music, but this is still, by far, the best. I can't really put my finger on what it is I like about it so much, but I do know it's really hard to take it out my stereo.
It's one of those albums that makes you feel so much love your heart aches. You know that feeling? I cannot recommend this album enough to anyone with even the slightest thought of buying it. It is absolutely flawless.
