First impressions....probably my favorite Emery cd. They've returned to their old style. If you liked the Weak's End and the Question or even just one of those two you should definitely enjoy this cd. It's really good. Much better than I expected when I bought it.

Best emery CD yet! I won it in a radio poetry contest, and it took about two weeks to get to my house, but it was well worth it. Great melodies, hard verses, awesome songs.

10/10

I gave it a 9 on the scale "9 - Among the best of the year." as it was my favorite 09 CD (although I only got to listen to a dozen or so being a poor college student)
If you're interested in my full review/opinion of the band here's a link:
Nothing shallow here - ...In Shallow Seas We Sail * by Emery - Epinions.com
In short Emery is one of my top favorite bands and this CD exemplifies why. I think that everyone should give them a few listens - let them settle in a bit because they hit their niche very well and it may just be one you enjoy!

Finally picked this one up, and I love it. Definitely harder than "I'm Only a Man".
