found some success by covering All Time Low songs on Youtube before joining the band on stage. Soon after he started Set It Off, who take their name from the song (and then used it as the title of their EP), "Calm Before the Storm," by Fall Out Boy.

This part made me laugh. I can imagine exactly what this band sound/look like haha

Wow, lots of haters out there. If you had any talent (scared to start your own band)you would not be calling these guys All Time Low clones. You would see they have talent and there sound is differant with differant lyrics and they have great songs. I saw them in Tampa and they put on a killer show. These guys are not tools at all. They are the guys your girlfriends will be buying tickets to see.

Stellar guys. Entertaining show. Music is anything but original, but it's pretty catchy. Rating is too high but I can appreciate the band even if I wish they would try something new (and work on writing lyrics).

The thing with ratings is that it's all averaged. So the actual percentage doesn't really mean anything in the end, it really matters the actual numbers. Sure, it's not that creative or have tons of lasting value, but the vocals are decent, and I've heard way worse lyrics so that plus production brings up the rating. Plus, the reviewer tilt really adds a lot, and I personally like it so that's also part of the reason the rating's higher.

Dude, based on this EP they really take a lot from All Time Low. It's soooo clear through the way the songs are written/sung/lyrics that they take a ton of influence from ATL. Plus look at their album cover... I addressed that in the review. I like them, but it's real hard to say they didn't try to be like ATL.
