iTunes Editors' Notes

With its fourth studio album, Four Year Strong took a big risk in eliminating synthesizers and keyboards from its songs, in a bid to alter and mature its musical style. In Some Way, Shape or Form is the Worcester, Mass., band’s first recording without its ivory-tickling bandmate Josh Lyford. The results successfully abound, with a meatier-sounding band playing noticeably heavier songs. “The Infected” opens with fist-punching guitar riffs chugging along a flawless rhythm section that pumps like an external combustion engine under Dan O'Connor’s muscled vocal performance. Check out the tough-as-nails guitar lead that kickstarts “The Security of the Familiar, the Tranquility of Repetition”—then it unfolds into a dynamic rock ‘n’ roll song with the band’s penchant for soaring melodic choruses. “Just Drive” is a salient single where every element of the song is catchy. Just try getting that contagious guitar melody or O'Connor’s intensely impassioned singing out of your memory lobe.

Customer Reviews

Four Year Strong and the radio-rock sound...

Well, if you were a fan of the previous album, you might as well forget this one. There are maybe 1 or 2 song that sound decent and that's it. They've changed their sound a lot and not for the best in my opinion. It's sounds very generic and bland. If you don't believe me, check out their facebook page. About 90% of their fans are dissapointed :(

Save your money from this. It's not worth it at all. (I wish I could get a refund)

Best song: Stuck in the middle
Worst song: Unbreakable (those "Wooooohh oooohhh oah" are simply AWFUL. I feel I'm listenning to Papa Roach)


I'm really confused about this album. I understand bands changing their sound and evolving but I am flabbergasted as to how this could happen. I mean from enemy o the world to this. it makes no sense. It's kinda like they're going down the same road as rise against but at a faster pace. Which is not a good thing!

Josh Lyford, you

This can't stack up to Rise or Die Trying, or Enemy of The World. This (in my opinion) is the least talented album they have released. I Love Four Year Strong, but without Josh, something seems to be missing. Now, they just sound like Rise Against or any other "rock" band.


Formed: Worcester, MA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Taking influence from the likes of Lifetime, Gorilla Biscuits, and New Found Glory, Four Year Strong built an aggressive and melody-riddled combination of hardcore, emo-pop, and pop-punk upon their formation in Worcester, Massachusetts. The band's lineup — vocalists/guitarists Dan O'Connor and Alan Day, bassist Joe Weiss, drummer Jake Massucco, and synth player Josh Lyford — was cemented during the musicians' high-school tenure in 2003, though a form of the band had already existed for...
