I was stunned by this album. I saw Shannon live, just her and her guitar... Then heard this. WOW. The piano is amazing, and the rhythms and textures on this album add the right amount of power and emotion to each track. How is she not more popular???
Favorite track: Soft Noise.
Darkhorse is an absolutely amazing song. The instrumentals are so beautiful. And your voice just pierces my soul so deep. I've been listening to the lost highways version for maybe a year, and I didn't realize it for a while, but Emma is easily in my top most very favorite newer music. I live in a little mountain town in Idaho, perhaps no one else here has heard you. But you have a huge fan in me. That includes everything I've heard, from acoustic to doom metal. Thank you soooo much <3 brenthutchinson
This album gurns and churns with the dense, atmospheric power of an angel wrestling the forces of hell.
Wolfe's voice is an ethereal swirl, but it can cut like a blade. Her guitar, meanwhile, is a reaper's scythe, and with it, she flails like a Balrog summoned deep and raging from the bowels of Middle Earth.
It's an album of dreams and nightmares, a sludge-gaze torrent of painful questions hurled into the void.
A brave, bold and empowering listen. Michael Mueller
