IT was hard for me to choose. I would never choose tbc as their classic but I do think swya probably is their biggest universal classic. For me personally both SWYA and In Reverie are very special. I think I choose In Reverie is because I can end long nights with it really well. As good as tbc was good for what it was Saves The Day only got better. swya and in reverie are high points on their discography and the trilogy were not as good in my opinion but had some great songs and I personally liked them more than tbc. Daybreak was std in rare form again so I really hope the band continues with their current sound and lineup.
agreed. tbc is good, but not std's best. swya is thier best emo/pop-rock release. like you said though, this album is special. see you, nightingale. aygtf, freakish, firefly and exit still get daily spins. in reverie is thier best indie and i'm starting to really enjoy it, espeically the title track. sound the alarm i thought was strong but suffered from redundant themes. utb felt too drawn out, but can't stay the same/radio/ and get f--ked up are still solid. . daybreak was stronger but chris' voice really gets to me on the record and the lyrics fell too drawn out again at times.
