40 dollars for the new Fleet Foxes at VMP? I get a limited edition version for 30 dollars at my local record store. Regular version 25 dollars. Easy decision.

I'm unsure I had ever listened to Funeral before, when did they stop wanting to be The Talking Heads?

Emo generally refers to a sound/genre and not only lyrical content (i.e. while it may be a shortening of the word "emotional", it no longer denotes the same thing, even if there are some shared connotations). Pet Sounds may have emotional lyrics and influenced some of those artists (as it has countless across genres), but it is in no stretch of the imagination an "emo" album.

Also, in indie rock circles in the early 2000s, emo (the genre) was decidedly uncool, so I think people on the message boards wanted to make sure it really wasn't.

I also remember a lot of "Bright Eyes has transcended emo now!" when he went from only being known in the Saddle Creek crowd to being an indie darling.
