The Get Up Kids - Something To Write Home About

It's emo, which is short for emotional. If you wanted to listen to emo, I'd highly recommend this album. Thank goodness for broken hearts and Matt Pryor (of New Amsterdams fame). The lyrics are pretty good, and no matter what emotional shit you're feeling, Pryor makes you feel a little better about yourself because he's probably experienced worse. Just a warning, he sings in a whiny voice, which some people may shy away from. But it's emo, so you can't expect much more than that. Standout tracks: "Action and Action," and "I'm a Loner Dottie, a Rebel..." Rating: 10/10

emo is short for emotionally charged hardcore punk, son. It's basically just mid-tempo hardcore. This is the more pop-esque mainstream version of the genre during it's last breathes.

It's post-emo indie son. Get over yourself.
