  • Summary: The New Jersey emo-punk band's first album in three years marks a return to indie label Vagrant after a brief stint on a major label.

  1. Positive: 3 out of 6
  2. Negative: 1 out of 6
  1. In simplest terms, this is emotional catharsis put to pop music. And it sounds fucking great. [Jun 2006, p.174]
  2. It's as turgidly epic as the tenets of the genre demand. [14 Apr 2006, p.84]
  3. Sound the Alarm is ultimately just another good Saves the Day record.
  4. It's hardly revolutionary and nothing eclipses their finest career moment At Your Funeral, but there's nothing too wrong here. [Jun 2006, p.118]
  5. Sound The Alarm shows that while they're still very much an acquired taste, these guys are much more capable than many would have liked to think.
  6. Saves the Day have given their fans nothing exciting, innovative, or new.
