Emarosa - Relativity
I'm not quite sure why, but when I first heard Emarosa, I wasn't too keen on the new direction they had taken with Relativity. I thought that this band was just all hype because Jonny Craig(ex-Dance Gavin Dance) joined in the roster, and there wasn't really any talent within the band. But that just goes to show that you should never judge a book by it's cover. That was my mistake for doing such a thing. Emarosa is everything but a hype band. They are a talented six piece which are amazing at the style of music they play.
I strongly believe that this was the genre of music that Jonny Craig was meant to sing, and what these men (Will Sowers, Lukas Koszewski, ER White, Jonas Ladekjael, and Jordan Stewart) were supposed to be playing. Relativity is one of the best pop-rock albums I have heard in months. The musicianship, lyrics, vocals, and presentation are all flawless. Certainly an album to pick up and band to watch.

I felt the same way at first. Then I realized that good music is good music no matter the hype. Johny Craig is the real deal and his voice somehow always rises above the rest of the band, in a good way. Great album!

Completely agree with the review. Saw these guys a while back with Sky Eats Airplane and A Skylit Drive, real solid show.
