American Football is the debut full-length album by American emo band American Football, released on September 14, 1999. Polyvinyl Records released a deluxe edition with various demos and live tracks on May 20, 2014.
Allmusic's Fred Thomas awarded the album 4 and a half out of 5 stars, stating that "Every song here manages to sound meticulously constructed without diminishing the easy, often dreamlike feel of the album. The record is defined by a sense of possibility and youthful discovery, and stands out not just as an anomalistic emo-jazz hybrid but as a lasting, iconic statement in the often blurry history of independent music.
