The Emo Album Club Suggestion Thread
The emo album club suggestion thread

Three weeks ago, Mankycaant suggested in the Announcement forum that we should start an emo album club. The Hardcore & Emo forum is virtually dead, and needs to be resurrected. You know, like Frankenstein and his monster?

From Manky's thread (this is merely an excerpt):

We're a website full of apparent music lovers so one album, every 14 days shouldn't be arduous work. Nobody is that busy that they can't listen to an album every 14 days.

It seems that Manky is busy at the moment. Since I'm impatient, I asked Butthead and suggested that we should just start it without hesitating, and took the mission of starting this thread. Striking while the iron's still hot, is that the right usage of the saying?

What is this thread for?

Well, as the title says, this is the thread for suggestions. Do you have an album you want us to listen to? Post the name of the artist and album here. If you were the sole and only to suggest one, lucky you! We'll listen to your album. If multiple albums were suggested (please, only one album per person), we'll vote. This thread is also for any suggestions you may have regarding the club in general.

Now, those of you who followed the original thread, don't kill me if I got any details wrong. This thread WILL be edited over time, since everything is not sorted out yet. We still need to start the official album club thread, and get the details straight. If you have any suggestions, feel free to post them. We need them.

my suggestion is for a newer emo band i have just become aware of. ive yet to listen to this album and doubt others have either

you blew it! - grow up, dude

Voting's until Friday. That's when Manky doesn't have university. Anyway, I second your vote since I haven't heard that one either.

Grow Up Dude is phenomenal, even though I've listened to it quite a few times I'd third that. Although Home After Three Months away is outstanding too.

If I had to make my vote count I'd vote for the Mineral album because it's the only one of the 3 I haven't heard yet.

Isbjørn 01-29-2014 12:23 AM

Vote for anything you want, or nominate a new one if you'd like to do that. The three I posted in the OP post were mostly for decoration. But if you want to vote for the Mineral one, I'm not going to stop you ;)

Charlemagne 01-29-2014 01:12 AM

Ah okay, then I will nominate one then. I'll put up

Brave Bird - Maybe You, No One Else Worth It

I'll second Charlemagne's nomination. I haven't heard it.

Isbjørn 01-29-2014 08:54 AM

Alright, so currently Grow Up, Dude has 2 votes and Maybe You, No One Else Worth It has 2 votes, too. :)

Oh, and guys, do you think I should wait until Manky comes back before I start the official album club thread (if he doesn't do it, of course), or should I just go ahead and do it now, filling in the blank spaces later?

butthead aka 216 01-29-2014 08:57 AM

Mankys lazy so just do it you're doin great so far

Crowquill 01-29-2014 09:00 AM

Yeah I agree you're doing fine. It's not like we're a particularly large group of users participating so any adjustments that are needed won't be that big of deal.
