I Hate Sex - Circle Thinking (2015)
emo/emoviolence/skrams/emotional hardcore
on spotify

of course I can say I Hate Sex deserves a solo page gushing over how much I love everything they've released but this album specifically holds a special place for me. Not only was the time of release a very influential year of my life but the lyrics are poetry on their own accord. This album stands out to me more than any release from them or in this genre, whatever the genre is. Emo is fluid so I dont know what it is, but I do know it isn't, either way who cares. The vocals, the twinkles, the lyrics, absolutely everything can stop me in my tracks and hold my attention. This is my favorite album of all time.

life's just a pissing contest
nobody exists on purpose
things might not get any better
but they might get a little easier
