A Day to Remember plays post-hardcore with a distinctly pop-punk melodic stamp. They're as much influenced by Epitaph and Fat Wreck Chords bands as they are by punishingly rhythmic metalcore acts. Their third album, HOMESICK, is frequently soaring and anthemic, the choruses on songs like "NJ Legion Iced Tea" and "Have Faith In Me" sticking in the head almost immediately. They haven't abandoned roaring hardcore brawn, however, as steamroller tracks "Mr. Highway's Thinking About the End" and "Holdin' It Down for the Underground" amply display. The songs are balanced nicely, and the ratio of sweet and sour is just about right.
Alternative Press (p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "McKinnon's inner turmoil is matched only by the music, which takes ADTR's signature blend of pop-punk and brutal hardcore to an entirely new and altogether mind-blowing level..."
