"So keep that piece of my heart that you took when you went and broke it.
You know I'll survive without it baby you know I was never perfect.
But at least I'm doing one thing right in my life this time,
I'm livin' better, better, better, better, better without you in it."
Before Reid went solo, she was part of the modern-indie-folk duo Red Winter, and the sounds of the music from that part of Reid's career have crossed over into her new music. The alternative element of the duo is found especially in the title track of this EP. "Ain't Like Em" is more rock-influenced and darker, and tells the story of two people who "ain't like em", or aren't like anyone else because they are so unique. This song, although on the surface is telling the story of another man and woman, seems to be actually telling the story of Reid herself. Her musical stylings, and her vocals, and her strong, passionate lyrics have proved that point: that Anielle Reid ain't like 'em.
