Great release from a great band,
This review is from: We Do What We Want (Audio CD)
Let's get down to business, I like this album, and I think it's worth your money too. Buy it.
I remember the first snippet I heard from 'Scissors' a few months ago. It was only a few seconds long, but those boys had me at 'breakdown'. As you might have heard, it IS a lot heavier than their other albums. I have never heard such quick double bass pedal footwork from their drummer, Dave. You can tell he has worked hard, and it has paid off. Even though the band has lost 'two frontman' approach with the departure of Devin, they haven't lost their signature vocal sound. Toby's voice is clear as a bell when he sings. Josh and Toby both scare the bejeezus out of me when they scream... and boy DO they.
Overall, I love the 'sound' of the record. The liner notes say that their guitarist Matt was a producer for most of the record. Whatever he tweaked with the buttons pushed and knobs twisted, he did a great job. If I ever release a heavy rock album (Lord forbid, it would be horrible), I would want Matt to mix it.
So, what are you still doing reading this review? Buy it!! If you have heard a previous Emery album and liked it, I guarantee you will be satisfied with this one too. Haven't yet heard of Emery? Let this be your first purchase of theirs. You'll like it. It will melt your face.... and you will like that too.
(Yeah..I didn't give this a five star rating. To me, five stars is perfect out of perfect. Yes, this is really good, but it's not the best album I've ever listened to. I haven't found the BEST album EVER yet. If I do find the perfect album, I will be sure to let you all know)
