Bayside has done it again. They are so very amazing if it's from there shredding guitar or powerful lyrics. They put out an album that reachs 75 on the Billboard chart. What probably makes bayside so outstanding is the bands originality. Lead singer Anthony Raneri is probably is what does it for them. Nobody out there sings like him he can really belt those vocals. On the other hand it could be there lead guitarist Jack O'Shea who has style that almost combines two styles of classic and kind of a hard rock. His solo on walking wounded and choice hops are amazing and his smooth guitar work on landing feet first and dear your holiness so his true color.

Most people thought this album would be all about hard time and depression since the late death of drummer John Beatz but instead the lyrics show a new side of things and a new side of bayside. I think the lyrics just show what kind of band bayside is. Anthony's lyrics are what makes him so out on a limb then other singers. He just is very catchy in the way he writes like in landing feet first when he goes ah o ah o that part just sticks in your head all day. Some of my favorite lyrics on the album are what a lovely day for a symphony full of honesty and integrity so take it for what it's worth originality's not a cruse. Those are from head on a plate but my favorite are all the lyrics from popular science which are just amazing to me.
