Customer Reviews

A solid and above-average indie rock album

As a long time fan of Saves The Day, I understand that any post-Stay What You Are work can fall under "love" or "hate". If you're looking for the poppy hooks of Stay What You Are or the faster edgier Can't Slow down, you might be disappointed. Somehow Chris's voice has become a little more nasaly than his teen years. . . But that hadn't stopped me from enjoying Under the Boards.

This album falls right in line with Sound The Alarm. With Chris on guitar and members of Glassjaw taking on duties of the rhythm section, this album leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to arrangements and musicianship. The sounds of this album have finally caught up with Conley's morose and depressed lyrical content. That's not to say there aren't pop indie singles mixed in either. Still catchy, more introspective and deeper than ever, this album is best heard with and open mind and a clear, full sound system. As always, Saves the Day has hit the spot when it comes to tone and mixing. For me, Under The Boards lands in second place just short of Through Being Cool.

Are you nuts?

I've heard people say they don't care for this album. I as a musician find it compelling. Chris really has a way with words and weaving them around some of the progressions and keeping them catchy is phenomenal. If you didn't like it, you weren't r dally listening and absorbing.

Perfecting their power pop rock since the mid-'90s, New Jersey's Saves the Day call it like it is. They refrain from characteristic pogo-bouncing anthems for their own quirky post-punk and energetic live shows, influencing a new school of emo/punk bands along the way. The first incarnation of Saves the Day happened when singer/songwriter Chris Conley was only 13, and the band was first called Indifference and, later, Seffler. A name change to their current moniker, taken from a lyric from the Farside...
