Definitely the standards: Jimmy, Blink, Brand New, Thursday, etc.

The big one for me is probably Reach for the Sun though. That, the 59 Sound, Illuminate, We All Need a Reason to Believe, and a few others were the records I discovered when I was first starting to post on the site regularly, so those are the ones I connect with it most.

Deja Entendu for sure. For the not immediately so obvious choice, I'd put JEW's Clarity up there as well. This list could go on for a long time I feel like, haha.
Great post. You named my two favorite albums.

The classics to me were all from my senior year of high school and first year of college

Thursday - Full Collapse
Brand New - Your Favorite Weapon
Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends

Those are the top tier, and would all be on the AP.net Mt. Rushmore. Brand New has had bigger albums since then obviously, but YFW was equally big when it came out.

A bunch of other from that era

Finch - What it is to Burn
Midtown - Forget What You Know
Dashboard - Swiss Army Romance/The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most/ So Impossible EP
Saves the Day - Stay What You Are
Northstar - Is This Thing Loaded?
Alkaline Trio - Good Mourning
My Chemical Romance - I Brought You My Bullets
Hey Mercedes - Every Night Fireworks
The Movielife - …Has a Gambling Problem
The Starting Line - Say It Like You Mean It

I also remember when there was a dual feature on The Early November and Senses Fail when they signed to Drive-Thru and another one with Count the Stars and All-American Rejects when they signed to Victory and Doghouse.

Other albums to a lesser extent
Moneen - Are We Really Happy…
Spitalfield - Remember Right Now
Armor For Sleep - Dream to Make Believe

The Graduate - Anhedonia

I can't be the only person that listened to this band simply because Jason raved about them so much. When it comes to this website, that's always a record that comes to mind.

Also, The Horrible Crowes - Elsie.

Same reason - Jason's to blame.

Never actually listened to acceptance

I'd highly recommend giving that album a shot. Really well composed songs that can easily draw comparisons to the likes of Jimmy Eat World and Terminal.
