Run Quick EMO ALBUMS; Here I’ll POLL, You VOTED

The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn’t have
I’ll call you when the time is right
Are you in or are you out?

Huge thank you to ArchCarrier who helped me compile all of these ballots and format all the results for easy posting. I would’ve done a much worse job without your help.

And thanks to all the voters without whom this would just be a list of my favorite albums.

I will maintain a Spotify list during rollout - taking place over this week and finishing on Friday. The link to that is here: http://open.spotify.com/user/mordys/playlist/2DxXJBmUeORd2Y1K4su1WE

Originally the rollout was going to be 77 albums long but because of a request from ArchCarrier, who says there are a bunch of interesting albums in the 78-100 range, I’ll start at 100. That means that we need to get started early and go quickly today and tomorrow to have enough time to luxuriate in the top 10 on Friday. Not sure yet how I’ll break it up into days so let’s just get to it.

These are ILX’s most heart-wrenching, soul-crushing, bitter and sad - like a frozen cheek on a cold September night - 77 100 favorite emo albums, starting with, at 77 100…

I don't have any thoughts in particular about At the Drive-In but I have a friend from El Paso who says his dad ran a music store and that there was once a robbery and later read in an interview w/ Mars Volta that they had scored their early instruments from a record store in El Paso break-in... this maybe belongs in the completely true facts about bands thread.

Straight in at 101-125 // Emo Poll Near Misses

ArchCarrier, Sunday, 12 March 2017 14:03 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Regarding the emo/non-emo distinction: maybe this is too obvious to be right, but I've always thought that one of the main things that distinguishes emo from adjacent punk-derived styles was its focus, especially lyrically but also musically, on vulnerable emotions like sadness and desperation.

That would explain why a band with a sterling emo pedigree like Fugazi (half of Rites of Spring and the lead singer of Embrace!) isn't really emo (lots of oblique, outward-looking songs about politics and stuff), while a band with virtually no subcultural connection to emo like Weezer can place an album in the top ten of this poll.

So, without judgment, I've been trying to work out/articulate something about how I think the understanding of the term/concept "emo" has evolved and why there’s so much disagreement on what it means, even if we just look at it in terms of thematic/lyrical content. My sense is that post-00, people are using it to mean something like “earnest, unreflexive expression of the raw emotions of sadness or romantic heartbreak”? And I think this might be fundamentally different from what it meant in the context of ≈85-96 post-hardcore. Even with uncontroversially canonical emo artists like Rites of Spring or Moss Icon, I can’t really imagine them writing lyrics like these (quoted upthread as quintessentially emo lyrics):


And I haven't been taking my meds
So lock all the cabinets, and send me to bed
Cause I know you're still worried
I'm gonna get scared again
And make my insides clean with your kitchen bleach
But I've kissed enough bathroom sinks
to make up for the lovers that never loved me

My sense is that “emo” just meant they were dealing with personal introspection as opposed to singing about smashing the state but i) the emotions in question were not limited to, or even necessarily focused on, romantic heartbreak and ii) the way these emotions were addressed was either with introspective, even obsessive, reflection and self-doubt or with somewhat oblique and abstract poetic lyrics (cf Moss Icon), both of which are different from raw heart-on-sleeve purging. I think this is true even of the sappiest stuff like Rites of Spring’s “For Want Of” or Still Life’s “Outside Looking In”, let alone something like Moss Icon’s “Guatemala”. I think that people weren’t trying to write “Straight Edge” but they also weren’t trying to write “Pictures of You”.

My Body's Made of Crushed Little Evening Stars (Sund4r), Sunday, 12 March 2017 15:11 (two weeks ago) Permalink

So, then, why doesn't Fugazi qualify? I don't think "Promises" or "Runaway Return" or "By You" are worlds away from a lot of the stuff you're talking about.

Hopefully I'm linking this correctly. Prior to this feature, the "Why Did Ever We Meet" video was the only thing I knew about emo. Plus, I had just discovered Napster. So this article/list was my initial understanding of what defined emo. And yes, the definition changed a lot over the next few years.

thanks for running the poll, i have a lot of listening to do!

glad Relationship of Command finished so highly (it would've been my #1 if i had voted). this album was probably the most important album in my musical development, representing a fork in the road where my more or less straightforward emo/screamo taste took a left turn to the experimental realm. while the beeps and boops on the album sound kinda quaint now, they were very radical and eye opening to my ears which hadn't really considered those sounds in the realm of possibility for music. omar's chord choices and phrasings were a revelation, and i still haven't heard anyone who sounds quite like him. cedric was an incredible front man with an incredible stage presence and whose lyrics introduced me to abstract and impressionistic styles.

as silly as it might sound, they also got me to start questioning traditional gender roles as they had manifest themselves in the punk/emo/screamo scene at the time. i recall him being mocked at the time for it, but cedric calling out slam dancers and refusing to play until the crowd danced respectfully really made an impact on me. also, learning that they wore women's jeans because they fit better caused me and some of my friends to also get a pair, predating the skinny jeans wave by a couple of years.

i was supposed to see them live for the first time at the end of april of 2001 but they broke up at the beginning of that month. i followed the mars volta intensely throughout their demo period and picked up the tremulant ep the day it came out (also the same day the first sparta ep came out). deloused in the comatorium was another very important album in my life, this time for intensely personal reasons not dissimilar to the theme of that album. i kept up with the mars volta over the years, but they never really hit the heights of RoC or DITC and my tastes drifted elsewhere. and now i'm done with my emo rant

My computer died and I couldn't figure out how to log in on my phone until now. My ballot went out with the PC, but The Moon Is Down was my #1 and I'm a little surprised it didn't place at all. Also, Sund4r, I voted for Okara in the low 20s, I'm sure you're not surprised.

Also, in re: the goth side of emo. Anyone else like Antioch Arrow? I thought they were supposed to be kinda gothy/flashy.

josh az (2011nostalgia), Monday, 13 March 2017 06:55 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Great poll! like everyone else, lots of great discoveries/rediscoveries. Low Level Owl has become my favourite find I think. I voted Devil & God #1, glad to see it so high.

Like that site you posted Sund4r, i always viewed emo like > hardcore comes around, some bands take ~emotion~ (sadness, rage, etc) to the max > Others come along and write poppier versions of it (which some is classified as Indie & some as Pop just depending on the usual rules of the pop/indie dichotomy) > then we end up with Emo-Any Genre from bands that interpolate some shit from the classic post-hardcore emotive base. So I think a big part of it is self (or fan) definition. Anyone can write a song about emotion, but to be emo you have to write ~emotional songs~, so Fugazi just kinda decided to not be Emo, the fans went for it and that was that.

That seems like a cop-out explanation now that it re-read it, oh well \_(")_/

Also, really liked Hotelier, don't know much about 4th wave stuff, but if its more like them i need to check it out

Will (kruezer2), Monday, 13 March 2017 20:52 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Didn't CMJ or someone try to retcon Springsteen's Nebraska as emo? That's why it's such a nebulous and contentious genre, once people started using it as a descriptor it could rightly be applied to nearly anything.
