Sunny Day Real Estate

Live

Sub Pop

One of those bands that people seem to love or hate. One of those bands that has influenced a lot of other bands. One of those bands that is… sad. If you haven’t heard of these guys by now, where the hell have you been? Many profess they were at the forefront of the “emo” thing (I’m sorry, but it’s hard to write a review of Sunny Day without using that word — well, you can, but it’s better if you don’t). These talented lads play 11 songs from all the past albums. I can imagine the audience… couples holding each other, lonely boys and girls holding their hands tight, singing every word. They clap politely after every song. And clap they should, for the super tight playing and the nice recording on this record.
