I read a the first part about rites of spring, mineral, and stuff. I thought it was pretty good because the author used people that were in the concerts to talk about the scene. The second half sucks because he idolizes Dashboard Confessional as the savior of the emo genre.

Awesome book. Explains emo origins and other great fact on bands and such.

I'm nearly done the whole book.

The first chapter is good, and although the rest is informative, it's not true.

He's describing post emo indie music, not EMO.

At least his intentions were good.

I'm not a big fan of dashboard either.

Ha ha, are you sure you read it? That explains so much, but obviously you didnt get it. Do you believe the limits of Emo are strictly confined to these present day artisits such as TBS?
