5.0 classic
2Pac Me Against the World
At the Drive-In Relationship of Command
Progression. This word is often overlooked by many artists on a major label in an effort to break out on the pop charts. Progression is what makes the musical world go round, it's what keeps us from thinking that swing is still the most anti-establishment thing around, and it produces masterpieces.
At the Drive-In understands progression. They went from an unskilled, emotional bunch of teenagers on their first few recordings, to the genre defining post-hardcore band enjoyed by millions of loyal listeners, all while making it big. They didn't sacrifice their sound, and that should be a lesson to certain post-hardcore bands nowadays (everysingleonetobemorespecific).
Besides that, their music can only be described as gut wrenching. The rapid fire bass lines and creative rhythm guitars are great, but the real star is Cedric's vocals and Jim's backup vocals. From the first inaudible scream of "BEWARE" on Arcarsenal, you will know why this is a classic album.

This album stands out as one of the best emocore recordings of all time. It mixes the soft-loud mechanics of Fugazi with the intense frenzy of Rites of Spring and can be as beautiful as any of Sunny Day Real Estate's strongest moments.
I would make passionate love to this music.

The Evens Get Evens
The Evens are an expressive two piece consisting of Ian MacKaye and Amy Farina, both Washington D.C. musicians. Ian plays baritone guitar and Amy plays the drums, and they both sing, though the sound is so full it's hard to tell they're a two piece. The guitar is clean and punk influenced with lapses into jazz and post hardcore. Ian's singing is controlled and even angelic at times and Amy's voice is astounding, and the lyrics are straightforward but beautiful; the vocals are nearly the highlight of the band. But the real star is the controlled, tight, expressive atmosphere. This is a must hear band.

Braid The Age of Octeen
This album is in a long line of albums made by Braid, and I think it's one of their best. As far as crunchy, fast, sporadic emo goes, this band is one of the bast. I think it has a lot of stand out songs, and the lyrics are just great. Must have.

The Thermals Fuckin' A
The Thermals are one of those bands that don't have to be over complex to be good. The songs are basically power chords with really deep bass and really chunky, high end guitars and a singer that has a mesmerizing voice. What keeps the album from being a 5 is that the songs are semi-repetitive and have been done before. But still, it was a superb album.

Angel Hair Pregnant With The Senior Class
Angel Hair was a pioneering screamo band that combined intricate, overly distorted guitar riffs with poignant wales, screams, and yelps and a driving rhythm section. Their songs consisted of pretentious lyrics and structures.

God this album is the most repetitive bunch of dreck I've ever heard. If only they had broken up after And Justice for All. I think any time an artist goes mainstream and releases a self-titled album, they sell out. Case in point, Metallica.
