 Thank you. This is one of the few pieces where I've seen emo/core given it's due as an utterly galvanizing artistic force. The comment about Motley Crue at the end is dead on; it takes a certain courage to be openly emotionally engaged as these bands were and as the indiesphere crosses the halfway mark of the millenium; it seems that to whatever extent it exists, it keeps getting ignored by the whole critical discourse. Thanks for taking something great seriously.
