Emarosa – ‘131’ Cover

We rate their fourth full-length.

Diluted, formulaic and ground to the very bottom of the barrel, Emarosa’s fourth album ‘131’ adds nothing new to their fading post-hardcore formula.

‘Cloud 9’ feels like something Dance Gavin Dance were doing 10 years ago and the pop hooks of ‘Never’ and ‘Helpless’ are ideas that Issues have already taken and made far more interesting.

If you’re looking for straight-forward radio-rock chorus fare then some of these tunes might tickle your fancy, but compared to the progressive, intelligent and challenging music on offer this year from other bands, this isn’t hitting the spot.
