The most influential (and best) emo album of all time. The melancholy and comfy mood that this album weaves is one that is tough to master, but one of the most important parts of the record.

It feels less like music and more of a time capsule of pre-9/11 america and the general motions of high school and college. Very few albums can say they carry the, dare I say, "emotions in the moment" award to the degree American Football did.

I was pretty disappointed upon first listen, but as I kept coming back to it, I realized this isn't an album that's supposed to wow you the first time around.

EDIT 2: This is my favorite album of all time.

EDIT 3: ok it's now number 2 but still a perfect album
