But in a broader sense I enjoy how many of them channel the punk energy and riffs into something more intimate and earnest. Even the ones that are more downtempo I feel are expressing themselves in ways most rock music can't. Rock's a more conservative genre (artistically speaking) than most want to imply. In contrast the expressiveness of emo's riffs and the melodramatic feel much more spiritual to me.
It feels like "jazz-rock", in a way. Where most other genres of rock are mired in rigid riffs and tacky melodies, emo plays a bit more fast and loose with the concept. They prioritise wearing their heart on their sleeve than preserving some arbitrary standard of showmanship.
>>59620685 hm. emo always struck me as a rather conservative, or rather derivative genre (just like any established and amply populated one), and actually hardly more, you know "emotional" than the bulk of rock. its just used to express different kinds of emotions, mostly angst and vulnerability i guess
>>59620772 Derivative within itself, absolutely. The number of garbage bands chasing American Football and Rites of Spring's coattails is staggering. But that kind of shit is what distinguishes a "genre" from just a fringe artist, I suppose.
