Navigating the sound between broken hearts and the
ever present promise of a better day, five star
theory quickly established themselves as one of
the most dynamic and energetic bands in the midwest.
Often lumped into the "emo" category due to the
energy of their live shows and the earnestness of
their lyrics, five star theory's sound appealed
to fans throughout the underground scene and beyond.
Their sing/shout along anthems of youthful abandon
were juxtaposed with quiet moments of reflection
and frailty. This was a band channeling the sounds
of the reckless abandon of youth crashing into the
uncertainty of young adulthood. Simply put, five
star theory sounded a lot like growing up. Their
debut album, "your life is passing by", introduced
the band to the world in fine style, capturing the
intensity of their live show, while giving the listener
a better opportunity to absorb the nuances of their
more melodic moments.
There second recording "make these moments last" was a fine example of how much a band can grow in just a few short years. Although released after their breakup, the album was a statement of how well these guys worked together.
