Beginning superbly with a multitude of (both musical & vocal) hooks, the opening 1-2 punch of 'The Weak's End' delivers an accessible & melodic brand of post-hardcore. The occasional screams only accentuate Toby Morrell's smooth vocals, while the slower passages that contain relatable lyrics are emotionally believable. A sense of inexperience sees Emery struggle to bring out the full potential of later tracks, meaning the 2nd half doesn't quite match the 1st, but this is still an excellent debut from a band capable of reaching great heights. Recommended Tracks: Walls, The Ponytail Parades, Fractions & The Secret.
The difference between Emery and every other emo, independent label band is that Emery has undeniable musical talent. The songwriting is purely flawless and the time signature changes and emotional, profound, eloquent lyrics blow me away every time I listen to them. This album is a perfect example of Emery at its finest, and one of the best debut albums I've ever listened to.
