The second album released by the post-hardcore band Alexisonfire.

Watch Out! endures as a fascinating document of tension and contradiction by a band on the cusp of commercial success.

The album is not bogged down by the thinly-veiled misogyny that permeates so much of the emo made during its third wave. Instead, the lyrics are introspective, littered with literary references, tackle addiction (“White Devil”), mental health (“Sharks and Danger”) how sweet hardcore is (“Get Fighted”) and the joys of Go-karting (“Hey, It’s Your Funeral Mama”).

Less explicitly, a lot of these songs are about looking out for and supporting one another and being there for the people you love. This atmosphere of empathy and camaraderie might have just been the secret sauce that made Alexisonfire the behemoth it became. It’s a cliche, but these songs do make you feel less alone. It’s ok to be weird, it’s ok to freak out, it’s ok to be sensitive, and it’s ok to have fun.
