Product Description

Amazon.com

Watch out, Rascal Flatts. Here comes Emerson Drive, rolling out of Canada with an eye on your formula: rock masquerading as country, high-octane energy, layered harmonies, and enough testosterone to power a truck pull. While they wrote none of the material on this debut disc, the six-piece band is hung up on "bed" songs, from "I Should Be Sleeping," the hit single about a guy's inability do anything but think of his girl, to "Light of Day" and "I See Heaven," which pretty much say the same thing. In fact, every song here is about getting the girl, thanking God for the girl, and pinching yourself to make sure you're not just dreaming you got the girl. That's what you do when you're young and in love, of course. No time for subtlety, powered-down production, or variation, unless you count "It's All About You," a slice of faux R&B in which lead singer Brad Mates vows that--what else?--he'll do anything to get the girl. Ah, obsession. --Alanna Nash

Format: Audio CD
I was really impressed by their debut single, "I Should Be Sleeping" - and the rest of Emerson Drive's debut record is just as good. "I Should Be Sleeping" is kind of buried as the sixth song on their 12 song debut, but it is so wonderfully written by Lisa Drew ("There is No Arizona") and Shaye Smith ("Single White Female"). This CD is one that you can put on and listen to all the way through - it is that good!

The songs on the CD are mostly upbeat and all about being in love. My second favorite song is "Passionate Desperate Love", written by Brett Beavers - Pat A's fiddle skills are showcased well!! "Looking Over My Shoulder" and "Evidence" sound kinda alike, but Brad's sexy voice brings both both alive. "Only God (Could Stop Me Loving You)" is the big power ballad on the CD, but "Fall Into Me" is the kind of song every girl wants to hear about a guy who will be there for her. "Say My Name" has lots of cute pop culture references in it and has a very cool beat.

The guys all appear to be in their 20s/early 30s and ARE pleasing to look at. If you like country music with some substance...this may not be it, but that doesn't mean it is bad. The past year or so has been somewhat crowded with new artists - Little Big Town, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Kevin Denney, Joe Nichols, Brad Martin - no one knows how long any of them will be around, but for my money Emerson Drive will be making hits for a while!!

First of all, this review was written by a guy, so i don't want you to think i like this group because of what the band members look like. I judge a group or artist on talent, not looks, and unfortunately with too many people it's the other way around, and they go for the looks and then decide the music is good just because the guys in the band are all cute. What a ...way to judge a band. I'm not sure if this is Emerson Drive's debut cd, but if it is then they have a promising career ahead of them. The vocals and harmonies are really excellent, and the whole production is quality. I bought this cd for the single "Fall Into Me." I was working one night and heard that song on the radio and went out the next day to buy the disc, i was so taken with how great that song is. When i picked up the cd, i was pleasantly surprised to find they also did the song "I Should Be Sleeping", which i also think is great. I like Fall Into Me much better though. And i was pleasantly surprised to learn that the song was produced by Richard Marx, who is not only Canadian (i'm from Canada), but is also one hell of a great song writer and producer. Anyone who grew up in the 80s will remember many of his songs. If you listen closely to Fall Into Me, and you're familiar with Richard Marx's vocal style and the way he arranges his songs musically, you'll understand perfectly that it sounds a lot like something he would have done himself. The thing i found most about this whole cd is that it's more of a rock cd than a country cd. The editorial reviewer was correct in saying that bands like Rascal Flatts and Emerson Drive play rock masquerading as country.Read more ›

These days, rarely does a CD offer more than one or two listenable songs in one package. Emerson Drive is the exception. This debut CD rocks. It's a thin line between pop and country and rock. And these guys tow the line nicely. Stand out songs (besides their great hit "I Should Be Sleeping") include "Fall into Me," "Passionate Sexy Love," "Say My Name," etc. This CD is definitely worth owning.

This is the first country album that I ever bought and I love absolutely love it. I bought the CD because I liked "Fall Into Me" and "I Should Be Sleeping" and even though those are great songs they aren't the best on the album. The slower stuff like "Evidence" and "Light Of Day" blows the uptempo songs out of the water. If Emerson Drive keep making albums this good, they will have enough songs to fill a greatest hits CD in no time. Can't wait for their new album in December.

I purchased this CD along with the newest Emerson Drive CD and I love them both! Heart felt lyrics and beautiful music make it worth listening to from beginning to end! I can't wait to see them in concert!

Yes, all the songs on this CD are songs about love, from wanting the girl/falling in love with the girl/staying true to the girl. Love is, afterall, one of the major themes in all country music. Until now, I have been only a marginal fan of country music, but Emerson Drive has changed all that! Brad Mates' vocals are in a class of their own--he could sing anything--from Harry Connick style music to rock, and he would be incredible. His vocal range includes some pretty sexy bass! Each of the instrumentalists are exceptional musicians, and I believe it is this talent that prompted Shania Twain to ask the band to open for her in her current tour. The lyrics may all be about love, but they are not typical of country, especially those on 'Say My Name', 'Evidence', and 'Looking Over My Shoulder'. After listening to the CD once, it has become my favourite album!
