Eve (150 Gram Black Gatefold Vinyl)
BC Music 22.1
Released on November 16, 2018
Vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. 2018 release. On their seventh album, Emery - like a fine wine - only gets better with age. The absence of their usual screaming and overdriven guitar parts, allows for vocalist Toby Morrel's almost ballad like vocals to shine through. In retrospect, this allows a break from the normally heavy on high-gain and thick rock riffs to show a new softer style for Emery that definitely worked well on this album. EVE showcases a more mature, unpolished, and raw side of Emery. Clearly a work of passion, full of hidden gems and wonderful pieces such as: "Is This Real Life" and "Fear Yourself" the album is full of some beautiful lead guitar parts that always sound smooth no matter what context they are played in. Whether in the heavier, "People Always Ask Me If We're Gonna Cuss In An Emery Song" or softer songs like "Streets Of Gold" and "2007 Clarksville High Volleyball State Champs Gay is OK." Eve will clearly appeal to the hardcore OG Emery fans as well as to newcomers just getting into the band.
