American Football – “American Football”

American Football is a seminal emo rock band who released one of the most influential albums of the late 1990s. I have been a fan of that album for a good while, so I was pretty stoked to hear that 17 years later they were going to have a follow-up. I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was honestly impressed. This album sees the band lose some of the ferocity that their had on their debut, but it’s a lot more mature and refined. I think hardcore fans will enjoy this album a lot, and I think the more I listen to it, the more I will enjoy it as well.
