Policy of Three, from Philadelphia

[Policy of Three]

These are what I consider to be the essential records that define what this genre "emo" is about. Not all of these are still in print, some have been repackaged from their original form, and many are available on vinyl records only. These are simply my picks for the records that were not only great, but original and influential on the development of the emo style. You may disagree about the importance of some, and think others missing from the list.
