Review

"Under the boards" is the second album in an trilogy from Saves The Day where "Sound the alarm" (2006) began the story and will conclude with the next album "Daybreak" to be released in next year.
Of the original line up, only vocalist/guitarist Christopher Conley remains today - his songs can be described as some sort of postrock/emo/powerpop.
There are lots of different moods in these songs on their new album, the opening track "Under the boards" sounds like Smashing Pumpkins meeting Dashboard Confessional.

"Radio" is a catchy contemporary powerpop tune in the Weezer vein and "Woe" is the heaviest song STD has ever recorded.
"Lonely night" is a nice piano pop song but "Can´t stay the same" is the highlight on UTB, it´s a real simple 3 chord song but with a genius melody a la Kurt Cobain meeting John Lennon - one of the best songs of this year if you ask me.
Just like their previous album, a fine piece of work!
