 Emo: The Emotional-Punk Movement | Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Emo differs from traditional punk in that an extreme emphasis is placed on raw emotion, which is conveyed through heartbroken and sometimes angry lyrics (as in "screamo") and through emotionally-charged chord progressions and high-energy beats.
Harmony is used more so in emo than in punk music, particularly to accent certain words and concepts, and emo music on the whole tends to emphasize melody and lyricism, certainly more so than does traditional punk music, which is designed to anger and move to action rather than depress or emphasize vulnerability.
Perhaps the most distinct difference between emo and traditional punk music is the former's repeated use of loud-soft contrasts, reflective of the singer's mood changes between heartbreak, anger and confusion.
