Armor For Sleep - What to Do When You Are Dead (2005)

Listen To Track 1: "Car Underwater"

I never thought there would come a time when I would actually feel sentimental towards the Emo genre. In my "Scene" days I couldn't get enough of it. Thankfully after I turned 18 I realized just how sad the concept of a bunch of guys wearing their little sisters jeans, flat-ironing their hair and writing songs about how they're upset because their high school girlfriend dumped them really is. That being said, there were (and still are) are a handful of Emo bands who's songs had enough substance to them to manage to keep their place in my itunes library long after their less talented counterparts have been sent to the recycling bin.

Armor for Sleep is one of those bands. After listening to this album I remember why I enjoyed the genre so much in the first place. Fun, 2-steppy riffs mixed with mellow-dramatic melodies and pleasant vocals. Is it the most amazing album ever? No, But it is a nice stroll down memory lane.
