4.0 out of 5 stars A bit towards the twee but entertaining
Emmy isn't going to be the next Bob Dylan. Her compositions have more claws than you'd think if you actually listen to the lyrics rather than her well-enunciated singing style and impeccable musical style, but in the end they are a bit, well, fluffy. But quite entertaining and listenable and likable. And after all the intention is entertainment, isn't it? Emmy's songs are...

1.0 out of 5 stars Abominable and juvenile
This is like listening to a precocious 15 year old girl who oh-so-cleverly makes an album on those Playskool children's instruments. She sounds like a shy 5 year old. Oh, the dripping hipster irony!

Emmy isn't going to be the next Bob Dylan. Her compositions have more claws than you'd think if you actually listen to the lyrics rather than her well-enunciated singing style and impeccable musical style, but in the end they are a bit, well, fluffy. But quite entertaining and listenable and likable. And after all the intention is entertainment, isn't it? Emmy's songs are articulate and intelligent and entertaining, and if they lack a certain weight, well. Not *everything* has to be so serious, wot?

This special edition adds some of Emmy's more delightful and irreverent songs such as "Edward is Dedward". Definitely get this one rather than the regular edition, the extra songs are excellent and well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her Name Doesn't Lie, March 3, 2009
This review is from: First Love (Audio CD)
Plain and simply, this is one of the most accessible, yet emotional and artistic albums to come out in a while.

Emmy's voice is subtle in it's beauty, but there's plenty of beauty there. She has creative lyrics that tell many tales, and not in a long time has someone made human emotions sound so good.

I highly recommend this!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Stop Listening To This Album, June 23, 2009
By 
Andi (San Antonio, Tx) - See all my reviews
This review is from: First Love (MP3 Music)
This album is a "rare rare find" (to quote a Nick Drake lyric) in that it is, to me, one of every 50 or so albums I buy that I actually bond with. I was actually sad when the album was over. Her clear voice, brilliant lyrics, empathic style, and brilliant music certainly do make her Emmy The Great. I cannot endorse this album enough. There's something sweet to her vocals though the lyrics can be biting and truthful. It will be your best friend.
