  • Description:
    Story of the Year emerged straight off the streets of St. Louis, MO, and though they may have released their debut album on Maverick Records, theirs is no corporate background. They put endless efforts into recording and releasing their own independent EPs, building up their own fan base, and even shooting their own videos before the big leagues took notice. Story's sound on PAGE AVENUE has elements of emo, but there's an edge that's far too jagged for them to be comfortably placed in that camp. Certainly there are tight arrangements, spot-on vocal harmonies, and carefully wrought hooks amid their high-energy, punk-derived sound. However, the tunes often break out into the kind of heavy guitar thunder and screaming vocals that one generally finds only in the metal world. In fact, it may be that this duality is the very thing that's allowed the band to reach such a wide audience.

    Pros: Good vocals, catchy songs
    Cons: none

    This CD hasn't left my CD player since I got it. Recommended if you like: Finch, the Used, or AFI. One song, "Dive Right In", was even used during the X-Games' Wakeboarding coverage.
