    The songwriting is daring yet tightly focused, catchy yet crushing, but executed with a level of skill that’s an obvious reflection of the band’s greater experience.
  2. The EP is five songs of huge, intricate, explosive guitar work, thumping drums that refuse to take a rest, Day and O'Connor's signature call-and-return vocals, the occasional necessary breakdown and gang vocal portion, and the catchiest choruses FYS has ever penned.

    These five tracks bridge the gap between pop punk and melodic hardcore in a way that’s so infectious that you’ll be too busy singing along to notice.

    The result is an EP of razor-sharp, barrel-chested, muscular pop-punk that no-one--repeat: no-one--does better. [9 Aug 2014, p.54]

    The Massachusetts quartet are back with a new EP that reminds us what made them so exciting in the first place.

    Certainly one of the stronger EPs of the year, Go Down in History brings back the spirit from "Enemy of the World" and fuses it with the bits and pieces of new sound "In Some Way, Shape or Form" introduced last time from Four Year Strong.
    The few tracks offered in this EP never give a feeling of lack of content - very hyped, powerful and addicting to listen to, Go Down In History shows that the band still has a lot to offer and pumps you up very nicely.
    Four Year Strong have now become a definitive part of the music scene, offering their own version of a genre, which means that they are most probably destined for great things, and with this EP we see that they've already gone down in history.
