Muze PNote Say Anything is nothing if not ambitious. The band's first album, IS A REAL BOY, is a rock opera complete with characters, a storyline, and grand theatrical flourishes. Their sophomore release, 2007's IN DEFENSE OF THE GENRE, is a sweeping double album that finds lead singer and songwriter Max Bemis breaking away from his punk-pop roots into stylistically adventurous territory. Whether it's churning post-punk ("Skinny, Mean Man"), swinging show tunes ("That Is Why"), orchestral psychedelic ballads ("Retarded in Love"), or incisive singer-songwriter pop ("Spores")--all of which are distinguished by Bemis's smart, emo-tinged lyrical sensibility-- Say Anything prove they're anything but another cookie-cutter emo-pop act.

Professional Reviews

Spin (p.120)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith its detours into slick synth pop, weepy roots rock, and big Broadway music, the sprawling GENRE proves that emo needn't be boxed in by stylistic dogma."

Entertainment Weekly (p.67)
- "Unexpected as they are, DEFENSE's sonic twists almost always work....This is gloriously conflicted pop for the musically omnivorous."

Alternative Press (p.185)
- 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "27 songs that celebrate the highest highs and lowest lows..."

Kerrang (Magazine)
(p.50)
- "It's dramatic emo with a cheeky wit, the showtune swing of 'That Is Why' softening a vicious outpouring of bile..."

Blender (Magazine)
(p.150)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Over two discs and 27 songs, Bemis nuttily injects R&B thump, techno throb, Queen-style chanting and folkie mandolin into his emo."
