PUBLISHER’S PICK OF THE WEEK (By Adam Waldman)

ANY GIVEN SIN – “The Way I Say Goodbye”

Every time Any Given Sin releases a new single, I think to myself…“THIS is going to be the song that launches them to the top of the Active Rock stratosphere!” I’m 100% confident that I will be right eventually. If there is any justice, “The Way I Say Goodbye” will be the song that puts these Maryland rockers over the top.

Given that they have sounded like a seasoned band since they made their debut, it’s harder to show growth and maturity as they evolve, but Any Given Sin has done so with “The Way I Say Goodbye.”

Unlike other artists whose sound changes drastically, AGS has threaded the needle between evolution and delivering the sound that their fans have come to know and love. In fact, to the casual ear, the difference might not be that noticeable. But as someone who regularly deconstructs songs for reviews, I can tell you that there are impressive layers to this song.

The big hooks, and melodic chorus is still infectious, but what makes “The Way I Say Goodbye” so memorable is the poetic license used in the lyrics that allows the listener to paint their own unique mental picture. The other two standout storytellers of this generation are Brent Smith and Corey Taylor. Any Given Sin continues to climb towards these transcendent artists with their latest single.

“The Way I Say Goodbye” showcases everything that AGS has to offer just over three minutes. From the melodies to the soaring vocals to the moments of pure power in the bridge, this song gets better with each listen. If you pay close attention, you will realize the brilliance of the bridge that repeats a lyric in such a way that conveys an entirely different emotion. When you combine the band’s talent with Chris Dawson’s stellar production, you have the recipe for a song that deserves to top the charts.
