Goated Emo?


This is such a beautiful album. Even today, there aren't a lot of emo albums that sound similar to Clarity. Unlike a lot of emo that would come in the 2000s and 2010s, Clarity is a really warm and inviting album. And with plenty of pop beats it's certainly one to come back to frequently. I also love the combination of sounds used across the album. The use of synths, bells, and other noises add a bit of a lo fi feel to the album, and adds to the emotional appeal of the tracks that they are on. ... read more


Good, but overrated


One of my favorite emo albums <3


Clarity takes some of the best aspects of Midwest Emo and Alternative Rock combined with some of the best performances and writing Jimmy Eat World had ever shown and shows itself as certainly one of the best emo records of all time.


Favourites: Lucky Denver Mint, Your New Aesthetic, Just Watch The Fireworks, For Me This Is Heaven and Blister
