When I first bought Jimmy Eat World's self-titled album, I only really knew that I'd like their initial hit The Middle, while I hoped that there would be a few more songs I would like. I ended up liking the whole CD. To me it is a rarity when you find a group that can produce so many good songs on one CD. Well this is the group and this is the CD. It has easy to remember songs such as The Middle and A Praise Chorus and then lyrically intriguing and slightly heavier songs such as Sweetness, Bleed American, and Get It Faster. This just shows how Jimmy Eat World can make so many great songs of different varieties. This is a terrific CD, you'll like every song.

From listening to this CD, you can tell that Jimmy Eat World has matured as a band since Clarity. As another reviewer mentioned, this is an album that'll get you hooked from the first listen. Highlights (for me anyway) are "Bleed American", "A Praise Chorus", "The Middle", "Sweetness", "Hear You Me" (what a beautiful song!), and "Cautioners", which is perhaps the most Clarity-esque song on the whole CD. Musically, the songs seem a lot simpler than their previous efforts, and while I do miss the awesome 7:00+ songs with constant changes like "Digits" and "Just Watch The Fireworks", their matured sound suits them very well. While all the songs don't stand out as much as the highlights mentioned above, they're still very enjoyable, making this an album to listen to for the entire album rather than just a few great singles that you have to skip through filler songs to get to. Jim Adkins' vocals are also in fine form; they've come along way from the band's early days. If you're a fan of Jimmy Eat World, you'll like this album. If you're a fan of pop-ey, rock-ey, and maybe a little punk-ey music like Sloan or Weezer, it's a pretty safe bet that you'll love this CD. If not...well, it's a good enough CD that it's worth a listen. You might be impressed!

Jimmy Eat World is not one of the first bands I got into when I got into the whole "emo" thing. When I first heard Clarity, though, I knew I had to hear more. Eventually, I bought Clarity, totally played it out, never got sick of it, then got both Static Prevails and the Singles collection. When I saw them live back around December, they played a song or two from the new album, Bleed American. I was impressed. They also put out 3 new songs on a split EP with Jebediah, and the songs were reassuring that Jimmy Eat World hadn't gone the way that lots of bands have been these days, radically changing their sound just for attention. Then a few months ago, I read that they had signed with DreamWorks, and was thinking "oh great, Papa Roach." Then, a few weeks ago, I began to notice the video for "Bleed American" on MTV2, and very much liked the song. It misled me to think that they were returning to a sound very much like that on Static Prevails. I also assumed that Tom Linton was going to get to sing more, like the J.E.W. of old. Yesterday, after much anticipation, my friends and I went to the local record store and bought this album. At first listen, this album leads you to believe that they have gone poppy and commerical, but when you really delve deep into the album, allow yourself to get lost in the music, you realize that, much like Clarity, it's very well textured and takes you on a journey of moods. With the near-angelic voice of Jim Adkins, the exceptionally melodic guitar work of him and Tom Linton, and the more than adequate playing of Rick Burch and Zach Lind on bass and drums, as well as the masterful production from Mark Trombino (Clarity, Blink-182), it's a musical expediton into the worlds of both pop and emo, without comprimising J.E.W's integrity.Read more ›

This is the first disc I own by Jimmy Eat World, but it definitely won't be the last. This album is superb, revealing a band with a multitude of musical talents. On Bleed American, Jimmy Eat World demonstrates that this band can produce pounding rockers to introspective ballads, intelligent and frequently uplifting lyrics, and variable musical textures all in one well-crafted and well-performed CD.
There is some great songwriting here, which combines with masterful musicianship to deliver a memorable musical journey. "Bleed American," all over the radio, is well-known, high-energy ride. "A Praise Chorus" and "The Middle" are upbeat songs with inspiring messages. "The Middle" in particular is one of my favorite tunes, an infectious track with pop rhythm and the repeated assurance that "everything will be alright." I loooove "Hear You Me," a softer song with unforgettable lyrics: "May angels lead you in, hear you me my friend..." And "Get it Faster" begins mellow and ever increases its intensity until a vigorous in-your-face climax that is most enjoyable. "Sweetness" is great, "Cautioners" is wonderful, and "My Sundown" is a chilling though perfect ending to this engaging collection of songs.
You want my recommendation on Bleed American? Play it loud on high quality speakers, kick back, close your eyes, and enjoy the ride!
