It's funny how quickly Jimmy Eat World went from underground band to enormous. I actually learned about them from Magnet Magazine of all places (which at the time was one of the most snobbish of elitist indie mags). Since the band is from Phoenix, they used to play shows here in small places in Utah back in the day. An ex-girlfriend of mine used to always laugh/brag about them having stayed in her family's basement after a show during the Static Prevails period, and she had absolutely no idea who they were. A couple years later, everyone knew.

Chase This Light has been a slow one to grow on me as well, but I randomly heard a few songs from it a week or two ago, and really enjoyed them.

Actually, 3 Jimmy Eat World songs are going to be available to download for Rock Band this week (tomorrow I think, not sure). Futures, Lucky Denver Mint, and Sweetness.

I've finally listened to Clarity, and I think it's my favorite one I've heard so far (I haven't heard Bleed American yet.) It's a pop/rock masterpiece.

Yeah, try it out again. The last song, Goodbye Sky Harbor (inspired by John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany) is 15+ minutes of aural bliss. It's fucking celestial.

Probably my two favourite songs by them are off of Futures. Nothingwrong and Night Drive.

Polaris is my song on that album. Some days, that's my song in life.

And I put Nothingwrong on my Space Moon mix.

-On April 7, Jimmy Eat World will release the digital-only album Clarity Live. It's a recording of them playing their 1999 album Clarity back-to-front, along with two encores, in Arizona last month at the end of their Clarity x 10 tour celebrating the album's 10th anniversary.

Great band. Lyrics are hit or miss for me, but I find their hooks indelible. I'm sort of new to their music, only having heard Clarity and Bleed American in full, but I can already safely consider them one of the very best emo (they really shouldn't be as good as they are) power pop bands I've yet come across.

New album in two weeks, bitches.

Cool. I own like 5 of their albums. I have been a fan for quite a while.

The title track of Invented is amazing. I found the rest pretty pleasant, but lacking the charm of Clarity and the pulse of Bleed American. It's pretty good, I suppose. Definitely more of the same, but not as tuneful as, say, Teenage Fanclub's incredibly self-derivative new album.

The new record, Damage, is streaming on SoundCloud:

Damage


And here's the video for I Will Steal You Back, which they filmed while touring some of the smaller cities in Arizona last month.

Jimmy Eat World - I Will Steal You Back


My initial impressions:

 
It took a few listens for the single, I Will Steal You Back, to grow on me, but I woke up singing it in my head this morning and realized that I quite like it.

I didn't much care for the first four songs on the record, but the stretch from I Will Steal You Back to No, Never sounds great. The last few songs will probably be growers for me. Overall, I'm feeling more like I did with Chase This Light right about now--not a record I cared much for at first, but now I'm pretty good with it. I loved Invented from the very first spin, but I'll probably need more time with Damage.

I actually liked Chase This Light a decent amount when it came out, had 3 or 4 songs I was a big fan of. I don't remember what 4 those were, aside from Big Casino, now though. For whatever reason, I never could get into Invented. I wasn't a big fan of I Will Steal You Back much at first either, but it's grown on me as well. Spotify also has Damage available to listen to, which I haven't cared for much.
