Emery - I'm Only A Man - Review
Emery - I'm Only A Man - Review

Tate did one of those big track by track initial impression blogs awhile back, so I figured I would do the same with the new Emery release. There's not a whole lot to say, so let's get to the songs....


I like the intro to Rock N Rule. That is, until you get a random blare of what seems to be a broken bugle. The crashing introduction and guitar riff is awesome until all flow is disrupted by that random sound bit. The vocals donít seem to be mixed high enough, as the guitars clash with them, and there is next to no clarity. Once again, the fast guitar riff, one might call it almost swanky, sounds great. Thankfully this time there is no broken horned instrument. The screaming and gang vocals sounds surprisingly good, and is the most classic Emery element...[read more]

I generally agree with you for the most part when it comes to music, at least until now. I really, really enjoy this album and think the band has come a long way.

I agree for the most part. I do like "Can't Stop the Killer". I hate "Donít Bore Us, Get To the Chorus" as much as you do.

I don't think "Story About A Man With A Bad Heart" is "about going out and having dinner and drinking". No, no, no. Its about cheating on one's wife. Quite graphic, too. Distasteful in its resolution that "[he's] only a man". So that makes it o.k.?
