first of all, this is not the jimmy eat world you think you know. if you just finished listening to bleed american or futures and are looking into buying this cd, stop right now, this cd isn't for you.
for those who are fans of jimmy's earlier work this is an intriguing collection of songs in the same vein as static prevails. the problem is, it's hardly as memorable as there isn't a single stand out track in the group. it's surely interesting, but not necessarily worth your time.
jebediah's contribution at the end of the split cd isn't much better. the only song worth listening to is the ending track, "harpoon" and even that will have you searching for where you last placed jimmy's prized album, clarity.
if you're a rabid fan of this band, or an obsessive collector, you may want to pick this one up. but if you're a music fan, you should probably skip over this lackluster effort.

I would just like to say that the first disc is not even worth wasting your time with. I am one of the biggest JEW fans you will ever find and this is the worst cd by far that they have ever come out with. The best song on the first disc is when they are not singing. If you enjoy JEW and their soft and melodic ways then this is not your cd. While listining I was wondering if this was even the same band that produced the two greatest cd's I've ever heard (Clarity & Bleed American). The cd pretty much consist of someone who you can't understand screaming and bad guitars. I am writing this to warn people that the first disc is awful and don't even waste your time. Now the second disc is slightly different. The first two songs are spectacular and that is the only reason they got 2 stars. The third song is just a badly-done version of one of my all-time favorite songs "Cautioners." If you really want to hear this disc just search "Jebediah" on amazon and look for JEW and Jebediah and you can buy this disc seperate from the other one. Jebediah is an awful band and doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as JEW. So all you die hard JEW fans like me. Stay as far away from this cd as possible and put on Clarity because you may never hear anything that good from Jimmy Eat World ever again.
