|The reason they didn't get huge is they followed SWYA with a string of sub par albums. By the way this album sold over 200,000 copies which is pretty good for an indie album with no radio play.|
While I understand this, I still feel this
one should have been bigger. While it moved a good number of units, the band never crossed over into any sort of mainstream relevance.
He didn't really compare them to Fall Out Boy. He said that if the world was just, Saves the Day would have become as famous as Fall Out Boy.
I don't think of them as similar bands, but if played their songs to most people (not much of the AP crowd) they'd probably say the two groups sound very similar in the grand scheme of things. I used Fall Out Boy to illustrate an idea and for those a who are in need of something more familiar or currently relevant as a reference point.
