The Black Swan (Bonus Track Version)

Story of the Year claim to have finally found their musical identity with The Black Swan, their first indie release via Epitaph after two studio albums over on Maverick Records; it sounds to be basically a fusion of the band's prior releases, a happy middle ground somewhere between the soul-searching alt rock anthems of their debut and the harder, gutsier In the Wake of Determination. But as self-assured as that may sound, all it really means is, well, The Black Swan is another Story of the Year album. This predictability doesn't necessarily make a tiresome set — exhilarating closer "Welcome to Our New War" finishes the proceedings with a nice adrenaline rush — just one that's pretty much expected, which will probably comfort some, but do nothing to convert anyone still sitting on the fence. Fans will bask in the familiar rise and fall sing-scream dynamics of songs like "Wake Up," "Choose Your Fate," and "Apathy Is a Deathwish," while elsewhere they'll appreciate relatively softer moments, as in the soaring emotions of "We're Not Gonna Make It" and the piano-embossed ballad "Terrified," which comes complete with gentle drum rolls and sweet vocal harmonies. Songs build, crash, chug and crescendo as expected, proving that Story of the Year's new home on Epitaph does nothing to alter or influence the quintet's take on emotional, accessible rock music with hardcore flourishes. It's superficially an odd pairing of label and band, but one that ultimately affects little more than the logo stamped on the album's back cover.

super platte

bloss leider ist der erste song kaputt, lässt sich niet loaden :(

Das Album ist echt gut....

.....aber es ist ganz schön dreist von I-Tunes, dass sie nicht kontrollieren ob alle Tracks downloadbar sind. Der 1. Track ist für mish ein Anreiz gewesen das Album zu kaufen und jetzt ist eben dieser nicht downloadbar. Schade eigentlich. Album: genial, I-Tunes: kon-genial


Gegründet: 1995 in St. Louis, MO

Genre: Alternative

Jahre aktiv: '00s

Story of the Year took root in the late '90s under a different name, Big Blue Monkey, in St. Louis, MO. At the time of its inception, the band's sound was much heavier (similar to the Deftones), and the lineup that would eventually become Story of the Year was not yet in place. Big Blue Monkey played frequent shows in the St. Louis area, issued several EPs, and endured the lineup fluctuations typical to any struggling combo. Creative and persistent self-promotion soon caught the ear of producer John...
