Album Review

Following up on Explains It All, an album of ‘90s covers, Four Year Strong return to the crossroads of emo and pop-punk with their second album of original material, Enemy of the World. The Worcester, MA quintet’s sound remains largely unchanged, with their combination of pop-punk energy, uplifting singalong choruses, and metalcore flourishes. There’s not a lot in the way of innovation here, but there doesn’t really need to be. Four Year Strong has stumbled upon a sound that takes the catchiest elements from three different genres and bundles them up in a high-energy package that’s undeniably catchy. Alone, these styles have almost been done to death. By mixing them together, the band has created a dynamic sound that keeps the listener on their toes as they effortlessly shift from hardcore breakdowns to sweeping, half-time choruses. On “It Must Really Suck to Be Four Year Strong,” the album opener and first single, the song shifts back and forth easily from metalcore chugging to driving, major-key passages that invite you to join in and help out with the vocal duties. Jampacked with hooks and gang vocals, the rest of the album follows along those same lines, showing off the talents of a band of tight and consistent musicians and songwriters who’ve taken a wide range of styles and combined them into something that is all their own.

Good return

This is a pretty good album, and you can tell that the band has deffinately matured a little and has more experience when you compare it to RODT. This album also sounds great, the production quality is superb. A great follow up to Rise or Die Trying, and a tad bit heavier.


I didnt think anything could top Rise or Die trying but I was wrong. From start to finish, Enemy of the World is awesome. Find my way back and This Body pays the bills are the two best, but the rest of the songs follow closely. Overall, a great album. Four Year Strong never fails to deliver awesome songs.

Better than the first full length

Didn't think it would be as good a rise or dye trying but they did it. Got it 3 weeks ago as a torrent but went and bought the cd the day it came out. Worth 5x the $!!!

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 — vocalist/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...
