Deep Elm keeps popping these things out, so it's not surprise that number 9 is in the works. For the love of god, stop already. Although these are some decent volumes in this collection, it's a bit much. It's stated that this compilation is not a sampler, but the truth is, all compilations are sa.

Deep Elm keeps popping these things out, so it's not surprise that number 9 is in the works. For the love of god, stop already. Although these are some decent volumes in this collection, it's a bit much. It's stated that this compilation is not a sampler, but the truth is, all compilations are samplers in their own way. This CD may not be a sample for the record company itself, but is a sample of the bands. It's a chance to hear music from a band to get a feeling for their sound and what they're all about. (at least that's what I use them for)

These songs are all hand picked and are previously unreleased songs or are written for the sake of the CD. There are hundreds of songs submitted for each chapter of this series. At least all songs for this CD are chosen "blindly" so that everyone has an equal opportunity to be on the compilation. I think some of the songs were even chosen deafly. I'd like to be on a team that decides what does and does not go on a compilation because maybe it's hard work and I just don't get it.

I am going to say this CD didn't make a huge impression on me because every time I put it in the CD player to analyze, I started to forget I was even listening about 4 songs into it. YAWN. Boring. It just wasn't capturing my attention in a way that it should have. With the exception of the first song, most of the songs on this CD have a soft, mellowed out sound. Less whining, less crying, so easy going even your grandmother could listen to it with out calling it noise. Would I put this CD into regular rotation in my CD player? Probably not, would I recommend it to someone else? Probably not. Is it really that bad? Probably not. I just don't think it's something to write home about. Since this CD bored me to tears, I have nothing more to say about it than "Don't waste your money".

Dude I think Fading Fast is one of the better bands on this comp cause they seem to be the most unlike the others...they just rock out!

Who puts in a CD just to "analize" it? I personally put in CD's to "listen" to them. Maybe if I was "paid" to write album reviews, I might be forced to analize a CD.

Very sloppy try at a review.

Here's a link to the track listing and some mp3's....Ya never know there might be a gem on there. It sounds like sheena didn't get past track 4....she was probably burnt out that night....

i think its stupid for a reviewer to review something they don't really hate or love....they probably knew what they thought of it before listening....

why even listen to it??? stick to the albums you have any interest in.

i bet this album would be great

joeg (February 8, 2003)

bravo sheena! great review!

Anonymous (February 8, 2003)

Gay sex doesn't suck . . .

TheOneTrueBill (February 8, 2003)

since no one wants to be called Emo, wouldn't they not want to be on a comp called "Emo diaries?"

just a thought

And THIS is what happens when people don't read the rest of the comments about the review.

"This is a bad review because he didn't really talk about any of the bands. he just said he didn't like it"

-every single person who replied to this review

Either think up something new to say about the review or don't say anything.

Sure it was a bad review, but the first 20 people that replied got that point across.

Most of them also noticed that the reviewer didn't really mention any of the bands. So that's been taken care of.

Also a lot of the repliers mentioned that the reviewer was an idiot. They don't actually KNOW the reviewer, but I guess they can tell this type of stuff by reading a couple sentances that the reviewer posted on a webpage. Crazy.

So yeah. Most of what you're about to post has already been said 20 times. No need to waste your time replying again.

normiesabadass (February 8, 2003)

This is what happens when stupid people are allowed to write reviews.

ok cd sucks. great.

now the operative idea is to explain why, otherwise your review is meaningless. And boy is it.

Thanks for nothing.

"sheenas not punk rocker, but tamara's a punk"
thats fucking classic. 5 points to you.

bruceless (February 8, 2003)

What a fucking horrible review.

Was even one band from the album mentioned?

Go work in Subway!!

BostonMusicGuy (February 7, 2003)

Saying things like "you probably don't even know what emo is" is fucking ridiculous. Emo is emotional punk... isnt that what it stands for? Who cares what it is exactly.. does anyone really know? If so, you spend way too much time listening to it and should go and check out some more uplifting music.-BostonMusicGuy

johnnydanger (February 7, 2003)

What a bad review, you moron. You didn't name one track or band nor even one specific problem. You said this sucks 50 times and therefore this review has done nothing for me. Score is for the review.

waste_elite (February 7, 2003)

"eventually most of you 14 year olds should, and if you're over 18 and still think punk is cool, i pity you"

yeah, and emo is for the highly developed intellect...

pity? since when did listening to punk have an age limit?

Sheena's not a punkrocker, but Tamara is a punk.

And emo doesn't suck. Fact is, you probably don't know what emo is.

Anonymous (February 7, 2003)

maybe she wrote this before...
(sheena is, a punk rocker NOW)

waste_elite (February 7, 2003)

i thought sheena was a punkrocker?

sheena, your reviews are usually better than that.

Emo sucks, this review sucks. Thank you for taking 1 minute of my time that I will never get back.

10 stars go to the most original review on this whole website!!! admit it guys, this review is so damn unique, so left of center, it actually persuaded me not to get this cd without naming any specific bands or songs. genius!!! the fact that its an emo comp. MUST mean its full of shit and sheena has conveyed that with such simplicity, such flipoancy, its frightening. 10 FUCKING STARS FOR YOU SHEENA!

Anonymous (February 7, 2003)

That was not a review.

relay1112 (February 7, 2003)

You mention the first song as a standout one, yet give no band name nor song title? Useless.

Anonymous (February 7, 2003)

Next time, you should tell more about the cd, even if you didn't like it. Who are some of the bands, and what do their songs sound like? shit like that, like an actual review.
