ALBUM REVIEW: What You Don’t See - The Story So Far
Going into listening to a new album from any band I like is always mildly nerve-wracking. While I try to go into everything with an open mind, there’s always this level of apprehension that the new work won’t be as good as the last, or that it’ll outright suck. Luckily for me, this was not the case with What You Don’t See from The Story So Far.
Going into listening to What You Don’t See I was immediately hit by certain distinctions between this album and the last. While it took a while for Under Soil and Dirt to grow on me, this album sucked me in almost immediately. There’s no denying the bands ability to write catchy tunes that stick in your head and leave you walking around humming the songs to yourself throughout the day.
The Story So far have mastered the art of conveying emotion while at the same time keeping the record at a high energy pace that leaves you in an upbeat mood and waiting for the next track. Band maturity and growth are evident in this record, but not in a way that makes you feel as though you’re listening to a completely different band. They’ve managed to grow and perfect their craft without changing the catchy pop-punk style that they’re known for.
When it comes to playing favorites, “Stifled” and “Bad Luck” came in as my top two tracks. I really appreciate the simplicity of the songs, as well as the outrageously catchy vocals. It won’t be hard for pop-punk lovers to find at least one track from What You Don’t See to fall completely in love with.
Listening to the record was a pleasurable music surprise. I went in expecting to hear a record that was okay, but would need more listens in order to truly stick with me, and was met with something that completely blew my mind. The Story So Far haven proven that they can write solid, catchy tunes that will leave listeners wanting and expecting more. As long as they deliver, I’m more than positive they’ll have no trouble sticking around in the music scene.
Reviewer score: 4.3/5
