"If you appreciate music from a rock point of view or from a mellodic point of view or even from a raging point of view, then pick up either of the emo diaries compilations, you won't be disappointed. Pop Unknown start off the cd right with some terrific instrumenal music, but as the vocals chime in, the song seems to fall in place. I also liked the next three tracks, which absolutely defines from anyway you look at it, what emo is all about...expressing emotion through music. The collection, which by the way will be extented with a third comp. entitled "The Moment of Truth" will blow about any rock/pop/punk/indie fan."
Fade away compilation

"this compilation is a classic fade away album. the first song, "writing it down for you" by pop unknown is a classic "emo" song. it sets the bar quite high. unfortunately, the bar is only topped once throughout the rest of the album. it is topped in the track "holly park" by brandston. i am prejudiced since this is one of my favourite bands, but they recorded the best song of their career (barring anything yet to come). the melody and one of the best harmony duos carry this song through somewhat depressing lyrical content (being apart from the one you love). from this point on (track five), the album fades into oblivion. there is nothing of import to comment on. the songs do nothing to separate themselves from the typical "emo" fare. however, it is worth the buy for the brandston track (unless you can find the "holly park/black boys on mopeds" seven inch)."
