American Football | American Football | 1999
Midwest Emo kings American football created one of the most influential emo records of all time in the bands short lifespan. This was a fresh release, a mix of odd time signatures, tunings and instruments accompanied by a softly sang voice, which created this post-rock, jazz, mathematical masterpiece that is Their self titled LP. The twinkly and light guitars are often accompanied by a range or jazz instruments and 3/4 time signatures. I would label this album as a classic, a must have for all fans of the emo genre and even beyond that. It has stood the test of time and still has a modern feel to it despite its age.
