Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Alt-Rock band, their first studio album since Chase The Light (2007). Recorded in Tempe, Arizona at the band's Unit 2 studio, Jimmy Eat World reunited with Mark Trombino, the producer on the band's breakthrough album, Bleed American, and their seminal earlier albums, Static Prevails and Clarity. "We're very excited about Invented," said lead singer and guitarist Jim Adkins, "It was great reconnecting and creating an album with Mark Trombino, we can't wait for our fans to hear it." Jimmy Eat World's last release may have been three years ago but they've been busy. The boys took a break from the recording of Invented to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of their influential album, Clarity with a sold out national tour.

Customer Reviews

Sorry, YMMV but definitely no five stars here.
It did have some great songs on it, but as an album, it was a sub-par effort.
Kevin Conaway
Thank you Jimmy Eat World for this phenomenal work.

I wasn't planning on writing a review for this album but after seeing all of these 5 star reviews, I had to chime in. This is not a 5 star album. In general people who write reviews are one of two types: people who hate whatever it is they are reviewing and can't wait to tell everyone how much they hate it and others who are huge super subjective followers of a band who would basically praise anything their favorite band puts out regardless of how good or bad it is.

I would like to preface my review by saying that I happen to be a big Jimmy Eat World fan and Bleed American is one of my favorite albums of all time but I don't let my love for their past releases cloud my judgment on this or any future releases. Jimmy Eat World has a formula when they make an album and they stick to that here as they do in all of their releases. They usually try to mix up the album with some harder songs and some slower songs and then close with a long slow ballad. The problem with invented is that the hard songs aren't as rocking, the soft songs aren't as captivating, and the ballad is basically a sub-par version of 23. I mention all of this because when reviewing an album, knowing what the band has done in the past and is capable of, definitely will be a basis and measuring stick for the new album. After knowing how totally amazing Bleed American is, I honestly don't see how anyone could give this album 5 stars. Is it as good as Bleed American or even Futures? No way. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I really don't see any way this album is as good as their previous works.

Forgetting for a moment my gripes with this album being over rated....its really not a bad record, it's just not anything we haven't heard before.

It is hard not to consider the boys - well, men - of Jimmy Eat World the Grand Poobahs of the emo world. It was upon their 90s work that emo entered the mainstream stratosphere and propelled them, as well as many other bands that followed, to commercial success and critical respect.

The genre is decidedly youth-aimed, and these guys are very much in their 30s by now, despite their youthful appearance, and that fact of life informs the thematic maturity that colors much of "Invented," standing in contrast to their previous releases.

Their signature sound - heady, large, angst-ridden, screechy, over-the-top, soul-searching, highly caffeinated - remains intact, making "Invented" a mix of sonic continuation and lyrical growth.

The tracks swell and surge with raw intensity, melding catharsis with well-chiseled songcraft. "Heart is Hard to Find" is an ideal example with its detailed, even dizzying soundscapes and Jim Adkins' unrestrained, passionate vocal delivery. The surging "My Best Theory" alone sears with enough power to ward off the band's younger competition from usurping their place on the shelf. The same goes for the repressed, ready-to-boil-over "Higher Devotion."

"Movielike" is radio-friendly all over - ear candy at its most absolute. It is catchy, raw and endlessly listenable.

"Cut" is one of the best wallowing ballads the band has crafted. Jim Adkins wraps his voice around each word with dramatic luster. It is grandiose and thoroughly compelling.

"Action Needs an Audience" and "Coffee and Cigarettes" are less impressive than other tracks yet fly by with awesome, hard guitars and interesting, nuanced arrangements, rubbing against the surrounding material with flair.

It's been three year's since Mesa, Arizona rockers Jimmy Eat World released their last album "Chase This Light," and their latest offering showcases another step in the maturation process of this tight knit quartet. With Mark Trombino returning to produce the album, the sound is slick and the production value is very similar to the band's breakthrough album "Bleed American." The album plays out as such:

1. Heart Is Hard To Find- 8/10
Perhaps the most different sounding song Jimmy Eat World has started an album off with in the last decade. When compared to past openers "Bleed American," "Futures" and "Big Casino," one will immediately notice this song isn't all that radio friendly, but in all honesty, it doesn't need to be. Jimmy Eat World bucks their former trend by crafting a heartfelt, sincere midtempo number that opens the album in a strong fashion.

2. My Best Theory- 8/10
The best description I can give of this song is if you mixed Chase This Light's "Here It Goes" with Futures'"Pain," the result would be this searing rock track. Unique in many ways, this song is already rocketing up the alternative radio charts, proving that Jimmy Eat World still has plenty of mainstream shelf life left.

3. Evidence- 7/10
This midtempo number is solid, but repetitive. When it gets close to going from a good track to a great track, it seems to fall just flat, but multiple listens may prove otherwise with this 80's-like track.

4. Higher Devotion- 6/10
The verses are fine, the chorus that drowns Jim Adkins' vocals out is not. Cut this song into parts and its not that bad, but overall, this digitally infused midtempo track is the weakest on the album.
