Save Your Breath Ė Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy EP
Record Label: Adeline Records
Release Date: April 13, 2010
Newness is everywhere. From my momís Bunco pal Linda who started spending the night to 3-D comic book porn, itís all previously unseen and currently unneeded. Thatís why a pop-punk band like Walesí Save Your Breath come off so welcoming and catchy. After 10 seconds of intro ďxRYx Almost Died At A Foam Party,Ē you know youíre in for New Found Glory hooks and Set Your Goals speed. Itís not never-heard-before, but thereís also no strange forays into experimental territories. Sometimes itís nice to hear something you know. And if that thing you know is also something new, itís not just nice; itís perfect.
The arena size of rockers like ďI Am The Ticket?!Ē and ďNot in the Mood for KiwiĒ create instant attraction with guitar solos the size of 80s hairdos and bridges that allow time for both catching your breath and creating anticipation. Thereís nothing complicated or mysterious about Save Your Breath, and itís this openness that makes Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy great for car trips with ďradio friendlyĒ friends. Simply put, if you like guitar music, youíll probably find at least one thing agreeable about Save Your Breath.
I realize that I sound like Grandpa Get Off My Porch with all this, ďI hate new music!Ē crap. Trust that few appreciate a zany left musical turn as much as this guy, but sometimes it's nice to walk into something already knowing the outcome. We all know music can be a big olí guessing game. And itís one that eats up a lot of time. But in between gym trips to benchpress 400 pounds and all of my one night stands, I just donít have the time to guess wrong anymore. But with Save Your Breath thereís no guessing. You know youíre going to get fast, catchy, melodic, adjective!-laden pop-punk thatís real and adjective-y. Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy is one hell of a positive adjective experience!

disagree with the ratings; i've heard many bands that put out the same recycled material and get good reviews, yet those bands don't nail it half as good as SYB, but w/e...
the ratings usually have nothing to do with the actual review, most of the reviewers on this site will even say that
and plus the rating isn't even bad...and neither is the review, this review pin points them perfectly
