Another emo band hailing from the United States, these four young men (Nick Ghanbarian – bass, John Holohan – drums, Anthony Raneri – vocals/guitar, Jack O'Shea – guitar) are from Long Island, New York and formed in the year 2000. This is their third album in which they went into the studio to rerecorded acoustic versions of their songs and also recorded two new songs. There is a guest vocal appearance by Josh Caterer from Smoking Popes on the song 'Megan'. The lyrics in the songs range from incredibly dark to those that allow for a glimmer of hope. Bayside's sound involves nice guitar work, interesting arrangements and decent vocals. As is becoming more frequent nowadays, the CD is packaged with a DVD of a live acoustic performance from the band's 'Never Sleep Again' tour and some in-studio footage.
