American Football-LP. I love this album, but I am surprised at the POST-EMO tag. To me it just sounds like American Indie music.

The EP:

Their s/t is wonderful. Great 'sleeping music', whatever the hell that means.

"Stay Home" is one of the most crushingly beautiful songs I have ever heard. Their self-titled is in a league of its own, so very very emotive yet restrained...

I love this album, and pretty much everything Mike Kinsella is involved with, Never Meant is my favorite off the LP, but this is the album got me interested in emo.

It's an excellent album. It's way better then all of Mike Kinsella's following working (mostly Owen, which is literally just American Football without the cool instrumentation. It has it's moments though.) I prefer Joan of Arc and Tim Kinsella in general though. Still, it's a really beautiful album. Never Meant is one of my favorite songs.

Never Meant is just beautiful. You mentioned the Cap'n Jazz link, but I think they're ten times better.

The whole album leaves me speechless, particularly "Never Meant", "For Sure." and "Stay Home"... I consider it to be one of the best albums of the 90's, as it's essentially everything brilliant about caP'n Jazz refined and matured (and don't get me wrong - the immaturity of caP'n Jazz is kind of what makes them so great, but they were even better when Mike became reserved and melodic).

The EP is also really good, too. "Five Silent Miles" is brilliant, among their best work.
