I'm just starting to get into this band. I just bought Chase This Light (which I love), Futures, and Static Prevails. I'm not sure what to think of SP (it's growing on me), but I love Futures and Chase This Light.

Futures is one of my favorite albums of all time. Chase This Light is finally growing on me, and I like their self-titled album. Back from that, though, their albums are a bit touch and go for me. I had wanted to go see them live, but their show here is sold out. Then again, they are from here, so that's to be expected.

Glad to see another Jimmy Eat World fan on here. This thread looks like it had a dubious beginning, but JEW are defintiely a worthwhile band.

Haven't really got into the last two albums, but Clarity is an absolute masterpiece, and closer to the level of U2 than Coldplay could ever hope to come.

I just remember they had that one album that produced a handful of hit singles. It had to have been about 5 years ago now. "The Middle" is a pretty perfect pop-rock song, I always really liked that one and the music video for it, too. I remember liking the other singles off of that album but I have no clue what they were called.

The album you're talking about is Bleed American (which was changed to just "Jimmy Eat World" after the 9/11 attacks, but may have been changed back), and it does have a lot of great stuff on it.

What's weird is that the album before that, Clarity, is way more sophisticated in its writing and in the instrumentation. They really do capture a U2-like atmosphere and/or power on a handful of songs, and the conviction with which everything is done made me draw comparisons when I first heard them.

Worth checking out.

Yup, I just Wikipedia'd these dudes and Bleed American is the album I was thinking of. But I was off when I said that it was 5 years ago because, as you said, the album was released in '01. I also YouTubed the other singles off that album and they were the title track, Sweetness, and A Praise Chorus. Good stuff. A nice little blast from the past. Here's the music video for The Middle that I mentioned. It's sweet, the band is playing in the middle of a house party where everyone is in their underwear. Two lonely souls meet at the party and decide not to conform, to leave their clothes on, and they exit the party arm in arm.

Bleed American is a great album. I love The Middle, Hear You Me and Your House. The whole album's got some nice tunes on it

Sweetness is easily my favorite track off Bleed American (which I called self-titled earlier--I've got a 'newer' copy). Another damn near perfect pop song. Get It Faster rocks too.

I love Jimmy Eat World, but I don't really dig their new stuff. I love Futures, Bleed American, and Clarity, but the Chase This Light album didn't captivate me.

I love their song 'For Me This Is Heaven'..

I was really disappointed by Chase This Light for over a year. But after hearing some of those songs on the radio, one by one they have slowly grown on me. There are still some lyrics that make me cringe (let the fat man drop, she's the sweetest honey pot ) but I'm still listening to it and getting into it slowly. Futures took me a long time too. I thought it was too depressing for a long time, and I had to be in the right place in my life to finally hear it and enjoy it.
