5.0 out of 5 stars this is it September 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
if you like to listen to music as more than just a passive hobby, meaning if you regularly sit down and do nothing but listen to an album all the way through, taking note of exactly what it contains, then this album is your holy grail. this is honestly the best album i have ever heard, it is the most amazing piece of art i have ever experienced, in fact. from the raw, powerful yet powerless "thinking... thats all", with its exquisite screams and builds, to the beautifully sad and touching "anderson mesa", that will chill you to your very soul, this album is brilliant. the earliness of this album combined with JEW's inherent talent for the intense makes it more incredible than any of their other stuff, but also make it a difficult listen at first. watch the way each song fades or rises into the next, each piece setting the stage for the next... no one has made an album flow like this since the beatles with "sgt. pepper". listen to it once and you will be hooked by "rockstar" and "seventeen", they are the highest point of punk/pop... listen to it twice and others gain luster, "claire", perhaps the best combination of quiet beauty and rock n' roll on the cd... "caveman", with the tiny sound of crickets and a forlorn harmonica or accordian in the end, "world is static" which provides the title... and eventually all of them. this album is a must have for anyone who ever liked punk, pop, and especially emo. please buy it for your own sake, it is magical.

5.0 out of 5 stars unbeliveable September 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This cd is phenomenal. It's completely different from anything you may have heard before, in that it's so original. You listen to the radio and you get the same songs played over and over again, with most of the songs seeming so fake it's not even funny. Then a friend introduced me to Jimmy Eat World. I have since stopped listening to anything else.

All of the songs on this cd are awesome, and that's an amazing accomplishment by itself. Many groups will release a cd full of crap with one song they know is bankable, just so they can cash in. Not so here. It's hard to put into words how good this stuff is. The first time I heard "rockstar", i felt that I was home lol. "Episode IV" is an extremely powerful song that starts slow and builds in power as you go. "Seventeen" is an angst filled song that radiates raw power. The amount of vareity you get is stunning, with all of it being GOOD.
In short, Jimmy Eat World has instantly become my favorite band, and this cd is quite possibly the best cd I have ever listened to. It's that good. Very Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The humble beginnings of Jimmy Eat World... May 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy Eat World have never put out a bad album. By far my favourite band of all-time. These guys have a knack for writing like I've never seen since the pop sensibilities of Weezer, or the brilliance of Radiohead. I, admittedly, became a fan of the band when I heard Sweetness(which, to date, is still my favourite JEW song from the first time I heard it). So I guess I was a little late, and didn't pick up until many of the Bleed American bandwagoners did, but I've done my research and Static Prevails is probably only topped by Clarity as far as my favourite Jimmy albums go. Now, listen, it's a little unfair to have everybody judging Jimmy Eat World based solely on Bleed American(and, more recently, Futures.) Don't get me wrong, Bleed American is an awesome album. Thing is, it has a little more of a tighter, poppier feel. While this is by no means a bad thing, especially when done right, the problem is that both fans and haters alike attribute this sound to Jimmy Eat World entirely. In fact, most mainstream fans and haters all seem to think Jimmy Eat World are a "pop-punk" band and don't even know that Static Prevails and Clarity exist. Clarity is one of the most beautiful pieces of art ever created. This baby, Static Prevails, is a lot different than the more contemporary JEW sound. The production(or lack thereof) allows the album to have room to breathe and makes it a lot more raw and edgy. Some could even categorize this as a "punk" sound. However, even on this earlier record, Jimmy Eat World still display their undeniable gift of songwriting and making music.

5.0 out of 5 stars an incredibly beautiful sonic landscape May 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Through the album Static Prevails, Jimmy Eat World have a crafted a true masterpiece.
It is difficult to accurately categorize Jimmy Eat World, as it is with most exceptional groups. The members of J.E.W. form a synthesis of post-punk rock taken to a rather sophisticated level, melodies which at any one given moment make you want to fall into a solitary slumber, and the next inspire you to erupt in a burst of exalted energy. They then combine this incredibly powerful music with thoughtful lyrics recalling regret, the importance of now, love and life. All while harmonize like no other through the albums' entirety.
It begins with a rush of adrenaline and structured, melodic chaos through the opening track "Thinking, That's All" and proceeds to bring out another good handful of superbly crafted modern ballads. Midway through the album appears the song "Digits" where it begins as lonely rumble meandering through the heart of a lost person. Only to explode into an uplifting movement which seems to catapult you to the next extreme, and then ending with a simple yet beautiful melody with a drawn out minor chord. It's like witnessing the transformation of a persons' stance on life with in the span of seven and a half minutes. The album continues to roll along fluidly. Filled to the brim with rolling drums, driving guitar and swooping melodies all the way to the very last note.
Static Prevails is one of those albums which has an immortal quality to it. It's a work of art which simply had to come to fruition. It takes you from one emotional extreme to the next, showing you darkness and pure light, and reminding you that in the end only static prevails, and that that's beautiful.
