Best Emo Albums

PewPewAssassin
Emo is a genre of music that is based around emotion AND IS NOT JUST HOW THE BAND LOOKS! The albums are ranked in their individual quality and not their overall influence on the genre.

The Top Ten

1 Diary - Sunny Day Real Estate

I agree 100%
I loved seven! Trust me this album is emo

A shirt lived band yet a huge impact in the emo community!

I really love My Chemical Romance and such, but they're not actually emo. SDRE on the other hand has kind of started emo and the album on itself was absolutely great and revolutionary

THE ORIGINAL EMO ALBUM. GOD BLESS SDRE. IT IS MILES BETTER THAN EVERY My Chemical Romance ALBUM. AND that's COMING FROM AN My Chemical Romance FAN.

2 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

YES

3 The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me - Brand New
4 Pinkerton - Weezer

I have never thought that Weezer were any where near Emo. - cjWriter1997

5 American Football - American Football

This is probably tied with Sunny Day Real Estate’s Diary for me. I think the guitar work on this album is very beautiful and dynamic, and that, combined with the very soft vocals, makes for a very singular, and great, emo experience.

6 Deja Entendu - Brand New
7 Vessel - Twenty-One Pilots

I wouldn't consider TOP an "emo band", but out of their 2 studio albums I think this one nudges out Blurryface

They are are definitely an emo band, just not rooted in rock or pop punk like others that came before. - PewPewAssassin

MY TWO CHIDREN JUSH DUN AND TYLER JOESEPH HHGHQSGHG THEY ARE GOD! I LOVE TWENTY ONE PIRATES

8 Weezer - Weezer

I see why Pinkerton could be considered as emo, but not Blue lol - HawkWithAnOpinion

9 Clarity - Jimmy Eat World
10 Analphabetapolothology - Cap'n Jazz

The Contenders

11 How It Feels to Be Something On - Sunny Day Real Estate
12 Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge - My Chemical Romance

Though I'm in the minority, I think this album is better than the black parade. Before you disagree, listen to Thank You For The Venom, it's a straight bop.

To The End, enough said

Better than The black parade, listen to thank you for the venom if you don't agree. Underrated!

14 Everything in Transit - Jack's Mannequin
15 Just Got Back from the Discomfort-We're Alright - Brave Little Abacus
16 Rites of Spring - Rites of Spring

In the End

33 Comatose - Skillet
