And The Critics Say...
"Emo Diaries 7: Me Against The World warrants itself to be one of the best comps Deep Elm has put together. Offering up some must-listens, This Beautiful Mess's funky / jazzy bend on emo and standout Drive Til Morning's solo acoustic alt-country trip make this chapter a much more than worthwhile listen. In particular though, One Starving Day's completely amazing, ten minute beautifully destructive dirge might actually be the best here. This is intensity; this is emo; and quite frankly, this is the most devastating thing Deep Elm has put on an Emo Diaries comp yet. The rest of the material presented here is cream of the crop as well. There's not a bad track to be heard, and it's the more diverse take on sounds here that makes Chapter 7 easily one of the best." - Delusions Of Adequacy "Nestled within The Emo Diaries Chapter 7: Me Against The World are some powerful songs, revealing that Deep Elm is still committed to releasing inspiring material from worldly talent. Tabula Rasa starts off brimming with strife, pitting distorted riffs against brittle vocals with great success. Waterpistol alternates between poised guitar drama and a full frontal assault, pummeling your ears with its angular rock. On the other side of the spectrum, Drive Til Morning hands the helm to acoustic guitar and heart stricken vocals. Deep Elm has carefully selected these bands to push the envelope in new directions. With bitter math rock and folksy songsmiths littering the compilation, this latest installment of the Emo Diaries does exactly what any good compilation should: introduces the listener to a variety of fresh and unheralded talent. Here's to another successful venture exposing bands you'll surely hear more about soon!" - Splendid "The little-known bands on The Emo Diaries Chapter 7 have been hand picked by the boys at Deep Elm based upon what they like, and I must say, they have excellent taste. Me Against The World is yet another page in the success story of the series. The music is incredibly diverse, yet they all have some unifying factor that evokes some kind of emotion from the listener. It's impossible to pigeonhole this album as anything other than good music, and as long as Deep Elm keeps picking out winners, I'll be first in line to get the newest chapter. All in all, Me Against The World is a masterpiece in compiling an incredibly diverse yet congruous mixture of all kinds of good music. " - Agouti Music "Deep Elm has pulled it off once again with their seventh installment of the Emo Diaries: Me Against The World. I respect the label because they give many small, upcoming bands a chance. They don't just go for big names. I hadn't heard of many of the bands here, but I am very happy that I was introduced to them. One track that immediately stood out was Lowlight by Time Spent Driving. The verse is very mellow and relaxing at first, but then it leads up to the chorus of blasting guitars and vocals. Other standouts include This Beautiful Mess and Tabula Rasa. I completely recommend the Emo Diaries for anyone who wants a mix of great upcoming bands in the independent rock community." - Indie Tabs "I expect nothing less than excellence from Deep Elm, and they serve up exactly that On The Emo Diaries Chapter Seven: Me Against The World. The songs by This Beautiful Mess and One Starving Day are my favorite. They are pure and raw emotion. This record is a perfect blend of what everyone needs, from screams to lulling vocals. If you've never enjoyed a compilation, then listen to this one..." - Punkbands
