Glassjaw: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence (2000), 6.5/10
Worship and Tribute (2002), 5/10
Head Automatica: Decadence (2004) , 6/10
Head Automatica: Popaganda (2006), 5/10

New York's Glassjaw (formed by vocalist Daryl Palumbo and guitarist Justin Beck) played emocore that sounded like the original nuclear hardcore of Black Flag on Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence (Roadrunner, 2000). The razor-sharp double-guitar attack and the vocalist's visceral delivery virtually created a new branch of emocore.

Worship and Tribute (2002) still containes enough doses of energy to shock emocore fans for the rest of their lives, but the genre does not lend itself to infinite repetition, and Glassjaw does not seem to know how to deviate from the genre that they popularized.

Palumbo got the message and started Head Automatica to play a Cars-like fusion of power-pop and disco-music on Decadence (2004), produced by dance-music guru Dan Nakamura. The result was not all that different from the "Madchester" sound of the 1990s.

However, having lost Nakamura and hired a real band of rock musicians, Popaganda (2006) sounded like a more muscular version of Elvis Costello's power-pop.
