Is 'Folk-Emo' a new genre? If so, this is it Posted by: from: Cape Cod, MA on I have to say that while I like this album, I'm a bit ambivalent. It was an impulse purchase and while I don't regret it, I think the album could have been more balanced by having more variety to offer. I'm reminded of the Spinal Tap line 'on this am we Turn it up to 11' because the emotion here is at a constant max - and could have used some breaks in intensity. I call it 'Folk-emo' you could also say 'punk acoustic'. Front Porch Step sounds like a solo album because the lyrics are so personal and immediate. In fact, the lyrics are the best aspect of the album. Here I have to admit my bias - I'm in my early 30's and while once 'Fall Out Boy' or 'My Chemical Romance' might have done it for me, I'm worn out on loud, aggressive music... so here is a way for me to continue to enjoy that punk/emo spirit but with sonics I can actually appreciate. I wouldn't call 'Aware' truly emo because it's musical content really doesn't qualify, but clearly it is in the hyper-emotional 'spirit' of emo. Actually, in its better moments this album reminds me of 'Dashboard Confessional' where there is a genuine spirit of self-discovery/self-growth thru self-criticism. Stand out tracks are 5 and 10, 'If I Tremble' and 'Island of Misfit Boys' and as individual moments any of the albums songs would be powerful - but listen to them all at once and you might be overwhelmed by their uniformity, their constant '11 ness'. But overall 'Aware' brought back some good memories, has pleasing sonics and often sharp, incisive lyrics. I would recommend sampling some of the tracks first though - this may not be everyone's cup of tea.
