Engage

The most exciting hardcore band around! The band’s third release finds them stretching itself from performing positive hardcore to making songs along the lines of tour mates Very good Charlotte & New Located Glory, mixing pop sensibilities with a tough edg

    I was expecting this cd to be awful based on the reviews that are already out there by big sites. However, it’s not THAT bad. Engage is just another SAS album that sounds pretty much the same as their previous releases. This one has quite a few guest vocal spots though. Compared to their previous releases, this one is more straightforward hardcore. There are a few mellow punk sounding spots. This is pretty similar to Revolution Transmission, but not nearly as good. If you are a Stretch fan, buy it because it really isn’t that bad. I will complain about them recycling Express Yourself. I hate it when bands put songs from a compilation cd on their own cd. It makes you wonder why you bought the compilation. The version on Too Legit for the Pit is much better than the album version(same thing with throwdown’s Baby Got Back). Overall, I will call this a mediocre release. SAS hasn’t really evolved musically. However, it seems the hardcore kids get mad when somebody tries to change based on how mad they got about the latest Poison the Well release anyway. This is the first album in the past year from Solid State that is actually less than perfect.

    i am a long time stretch fan. i must say that this album rocks and it hurts to see so many bashing this record. i loved it. it shows a side to stretch you don’t normally see. their love of pop punk while still giving you plenty of that sas hardcore you have come to love. give this record a chance. it is diverse and worth a listen or 20,000,000,000. awesome record.

    Though I’ve only known Stretch for a bit under 2 years now, when this CD came out I was eager to hear another CD that would become a constant resident of my CD player. It wasn’t. Some might describe the new direction by saying it sounds like they’ve sold out. I don’t like to think that Stretch would ever sell out but they definately need to do something to get the passion from their first albums back into their music. I will still give this disc a listen every now and then but I almost wish I’d downloaded it instead of payed for it. So disappointing. If you want good SAS, try Rituals of Life or Revolution Transmission.
