How am I the first?

This cd is amazing. Track by track brilliance. Jonny has an amazing voice. It's too bad he's a jerk huh?



i firmly believe that jonny craig is one of the greatest vocalists of all time. he has this soul, this emotion, and this depth that you can feel in every word he sings. his work with dance gavin dance was easily their best work, and his work with emarosa is always fantastic. he doesn't have the typical hardcore/post-hardcore singer's voice - he is truly a soul/r&b singer in a hardcore singer's body. not that i mind or anything; i love the way his voice sounds with the harsh instrumentals of emarosa. but he's been long overdue to shine on his own, and shine he does on this album. this is truly a flawless work, with so much emotional depth.
regardless of what he's like personally, he's still absolutely incredible and this CD deserves more praise than it's recieved.


Possibly the greatest vocalist alive

Jonny Craig is my favourite artist, because his voice is amazing and it sounds the same live as it does on the recording, EXACTLY the same, it really show alot of talent. Most of my friends and I all thought he was black when we first listend to him with "Dance Gavin Dance"
This album really expresses his vocal talents and is been stuck in my head all friggin year!!
worth every cent!

About Jonny Craig

Jonny Craig built his reputation for heartfelt lyrics and mature, occasionally soul-inspired vocals through his membership with the post-hardcore bands Westerhalts, Ghost Runner on Third, and especially Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa -- the last two of which released their albums on the Rise label. Craig has attributed his gospel and R&B influences to his grandmother, and as he grew as a singer, that part of his upbringing became increasingly prominent. Despite struggles with substance abuse, he has had a remarkably productive and varied career -- one that has also involved recordings with Isles & Glaciers, as well as several guest appearances. His first solo album, A Dream Is a Question You Don't Know How to Answer, was issued on Rise in 2009 and was his most restrained and nuanced work to that point. After Live at Bamboozle 2010, he released an EP, Find What You Love and Let It Kill You, in 2013. ~ Andy Kellman
