Album Review

Although billed as an emo band, the Graduate take just as much inspiration from atmospheric ‘80s rock and the melodic, poppy material of latter day Jimmy Eat World. Their first release for Razor & Tie (and second album overall) relies on a familiar format — slick, minor-key songs turned into towering anthems, with falsetto vocals and delayed guitar riffs that suggest the influence U2 — but the Graduate tackle the template with as much conviction as anyone else, making Only Every Time a lesson in coloring within the lines instead of thinking outside the box.

Customer Reviews

Great band that deserves more exposure than they receive.

I received an iTunes $25 gift card for Christmas... this was the first album I purchased. I usually buy CDs for bands I really like, and download the rest for free. Occasionally I will support some bands my buying their album on iTunes. I decided this album would be worth 1/3 of my iTunes gift card.

I am not disappointed. It's an amazing blend of bands that I really like - but it makes for a unique mix that I am really digging right now. You can definitely hear the Jimmy Eat World influence, but any inspiration they draw from bands they use in the best way possible.

Really liking the huge, rhythmic, anthemic sounds of this album. I hope to see this band get bigger in the next couple years. I definitely recommend this album.

One Hell of a band

I agree with Michael Reale : They deserve to be bigger. Sadly, they broke up in august 2011.

This band saved my life through rough times. I discovered them in august 2010, when this album came out, and I'm still listening to it to this day.

It's a chef d'oeuvre, haunting, it's makes you sing...

Not to be confused with the similarly named new wave outfit that morphed into Tears for Fears during the early '80s, the Graduate are an anthemic emo-pop band from Springfield, IL. Formed in late 2005 out of the remains of two local acts (Best of Winter and Jack), the group consists of lead singer Corey Warning, guitarists Max Sauer and Matt Kennedy, bassist Jared Wuestenberg, and drummer Tim Moore. Inspired by the likes of Coldplay and Death Cab for Cutie, the guys developed their sound quickly,...
