Sunny Day Real Estate is fucking radical. I'm using the word 'radical' ironically, of course. Anyways, their debut album Diary is widely regarded as the greatest emo album ever. But is it really? Fuck if I know, but I prefer 1998's How it Feels to be Something Onbetter. It's not exactly groundbreaking (girlfriend's a fucking whore, she cheated on me, why couldn't I see it?, etc.) but it just sounds good. The vocals are deep when they need to be, they're near falsetto when they need to be- it just falls into place. A must-have emo album along with Diary.
