  1. Save Your Breath have released one of the best albums in the genre this year and one of the only ones I think can truly be called a throwback to its golden age.

    It sees SYB keeping up with US counterparts such as The Story So Far, while marking their territory as bright lights of the genre in the UK. [5 Oct 2013, p.54]

    It is a more assured and catchier effort and showcases far better songwriting [than its 2011 debut], and though the quality wavers on a few tracks, overall it justifies those who passed on them before taking another look.

    While it doesn’t quite compete with the very best their genre has produced this year, There Used To Be A Place For Us slots comfortably into the folder marked Perfectly Acceptable 2013 Pop-Punk.

    While it might lack some of the emotional resonance that the absolute best of their peers can achieve SYB should be commended for getting the pain parts of the deceptively tricky pop-rock jigsaw together with some aplomb.
