Scout Niblett’s It’s Up To Emma is overall a pretty rad album, as most of the tracks have this sort of gentle aggression that makes for a real interesting listen. HOWEVER, I think the cover of “No Scrubs” would be awful without the context of the album, but WITH it? holy hell, what a mistake. like, I don’t want to lower the rating of the entire album to a “schmeh” just due to this one “sux” track, so I won’t, but know that I absolutely do not recommend that cover to anyone, ever. vibe killer on an otherwise well-put-together album.
overall rating: kinda rulz.
