"...tons of acts plays this kind of Indie-Pop-Classical mix, but Emanuel and the Fear do it better."
"Emanuel and the Fear turns rock into an extravaganza"
"Sometimes, you just need a break from the typical electric-guitar-driven rock quartet. Luckily, that break comes in the form of Emanuel And The Fear, an 11-piece rock orchestra that takes the modern indie-rock sound and shakes it up with a sweeping symphonic twist"
"At once superduper epic yet restrained"
“One of 8 NYC bands you need to hear”
"Remember when indie rock was about stripping down and freaking out? The kids in this genial, 11-piece Brooklyn outfit don't. Fortunately, they've got tunes, which always helps the sugar go down. "
"Enough orchestral synthesis to make ELO blush."
