FOUR YEAR STRONG

Go Down In His­tory Pure Noise

Blunt - - In Review -

For a while there it looked like we’d lost Four Year Strong to the same un­marked grave as Set Your Goals and Hit The Lights. And with good rea­son too, the num­ber of bands that have suc­cess­fully tran­si­tioned from niche genre to smooth ra­dio rock con­querors is slight in­deed. It’s no doubt due to this that the Go Down In His­tory EP is the sonic com­pan­ion to the band’s break­through En­emy Of The World; the riffs are bouncy, the drums get a dou­ble time work­out and the dou­ble bass pedal has been dusted off. The song­writ­ing is as sharp as ever, their flir­ta­tion with the main­stream mak­ing for less ob­vi­ous break­downs threaded among the songs as op­posed to tele­graph­ing them a mile away like their less gifted peers. The only down­side here is the short run time five songs af­fords.
