1905 is an awesome band, they collaborate great dueling screams into well-played instrumentals.
They also delve into acoustic in some songs, and their drummer is on fire half the time.
Their lyrics are not cheesy, they address issues present in reality that members of the band want to tackle; which, in my opinion, is better than stereotypical metaphors abundant in half the songs of most screamo bands.
Lastly, if you're going to call them out as being a bad band, don't do so by saying "they just don't push any boundaries"; more than two-thirds of screamo bands don't do anything but listen to music of a band who came two or three years before them and copy it note for note.

Having dual vocals and acoustic songs (From Autumn to Ashes had acoustic songs) is far from "pushing the boundaries". They sing about war and ignorance/blind acceptance, which are things that are important to them and nice issues to try to tackle, but bands like Portraits of Past and Union Young America sang about them over a decade before and said it much better. And then bands like Don Martin 3 told stories that are absolutely beautiful. 1905 really just can't compare lyrically. They aren't saying anything new and aren't doing anything new with their music. I appreciate the things that they stand for, I just am not going to fall in love with them when they aren't that original and so many bands of the late 80s/early 90s were far more successful in translating their political beliefs into songs.

And I don't listen to most "screamo" bands. I say the same things about them. I find pretty much any band post2k (there are exceptions) trendy and also unoriginal. 1905 is not a "screamo" band, anyway.

Matchbook Romance has similar song structures (sing/scream/sing/scream). The Assistant has those acoustic songs. In Loving Memory, CTTS, & IWSMOFFY are some popular bands that have the dueling male/female vocals.

Don Martin 3-Fire As a Metaphor 4 some of the most amazing lyrics ever.

I think we're long over due for another wave of emo.

Fun **** or just different ****. The majority of anything new that's come out is just outright boring.

EDIT: and oh god yes, Fire as a Metaphor is just amazing.

Having those things doesn't mean they "push boundaries", I said that's why they're awesome.
If you read what I said I never mentioned they "pushed boundaries" at all.
I'm sure you could compare their lyrical subject matter to POP, but still, not their recording quality.

Don't disagree with most of that, but I think the same-old-same-old way they play is pleasing to the ears, maybe just because they know how to make music so well.

Well put, but you can't deny 1905 as a screamo band.
Even though I have them as crust punk in my itunes, there is a definitive "screamo sound" in their music.
