i'd go so far as to say these first 6 are some of the best emo records ever released, including stuff from the 90's. if i were to make a "top 20 emo records ever" list encompassing all eras, those first 6 would all easily be on it.

the lack of love for My Heart To Joy in this thread is both alarming and quite upsetting, to be honest.

Alright I'mma start with this Empire! Empire! band and The World Is a Beautiful Place because I feel like I've seen the most about them.

Empire! Empire!, Joie De Vivre, and Everyone Everywhere are probably closest to that Mineral/American Football/Texas Is The Reason sound. All three sound like they're right out of the 90's.

A lot of the bands mentioned in this thread though are more similar to Cap'n Jazz/Braid and some of the faster and more "punk" emo bands than the quiet/sad/subdued stuff.

and if we're including bands like MHTJ here, then this definitely belongs in the upper echelons:

yeah nothing really touches that first wave of emo of saosin and brand new and sunny day real estate and jimmy eat world and hawthorne heights

I was thinking more like Braid, The Promise Ring, Neon Indian, American Football, etc. But different strokes, I guess.

i think Seasons In Verse is a perfect emo record. "All Of Life Is Coming Home" can't be beat.

backed on Crash Of Rhinos

No idea how I hadn't heard of them until this thread. Totally loving what I've heard so far. So thanks!

Everyone Everywhere is my definite favorite. the dude actually having a pretty good singing voice pairs up well with the whole "noodley" sound

this is not the band you're looking for

I was being sarcastic... none of the aforementioned are close to "first-wave." I think we've been over this, ParkwayTom... and Neon Indian isn't even remotely close to emo let alone first wave lolz

You're right, I'm kinda stoned and listening to Neon Indian. I'm not sure who I was thinking of.
