So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness
8.  So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness by Joan Of Arc

Precious Blood
11.  Precious Blood by Ghosts and Vodka

Roaring Mechanism
12.  Roaring Mechanism by P.E.E.
The list author says:
  "Loosely "emo". The vocals are there, but has shifting time-signatures and rough beauty to it. Adore "Carmen's Theme"."
13.95   Used & New from: 7.72

Summer In Abaddon
13.  Summer In Abaddon by Pinback
The list author says:
  "Again, loosely termed as "Emo". To me "Emo" is intelligent lyrics, Midwestern US indie vocals, clean arpeggiated guitar riffs and tight driving drumming. This album has it all."
8.56   Used & New from: 1.28
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)
