1984 EP came out during a very strange time in Saves the Day's career. After the departure of longtime guitarist Dave Soloway after Under the Boards, as well as new drummer Durijah Lang and Glassjaw bandmate, bassist Manuel Carrero, Conley was left looking for a whole new band.

The Return of Tape Deck — New Rules

Hey everyone! I know I haven't done much in a while, and I'm going to start back up soon, but first I just wanted to lay down some new rules.
Album Reviews' Bonus Points section will now be called Modifiers, and some new modifiers will be added, such as Good/Bad Opener and Good/Bad Closer.
The body of the review will not always contain remarks on every song anymore, but each song will still be rated individually for the final tally like before.
Finally, until I get back on track, there won't be a set schedule. I'll just post a review when I finish it. I'll try not to do too many EPs or albums in a row, I'll try to mix it up a bit.
Well, that's all for now, see you in the next review!
