Product Description

On Bleed American, emo-rock band Jimmy Eat World exemplify all that is the modern radio rock sound. Singing and playing with a conviction and sincerity that will melt the heart of even the most stoic of listeners, they produce rousing, well-crafted anthems along the lines of Third Eye Blind at their roughest or a more polished Green Day. These guys appear to be able to write ready-made singles at the drop of a hat, as evidenced by "Your House" as well as the title track. In fact, there is a rather shocking maturity to their material that belies the band members' ages (all in their 20s). While they sometimes veer into cringe-worthy power-ballad territory, overall Jimmy Eat World give the people what they want with Bleed American. --Ike Bolton

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 18 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album finally broke Jimmy Eat World into the mainstream late last year, and it's hard to think of a band more deserving of success. Dropped by their label after the commercial failure of their critically acclaimed 1999 album 'Clarity', they overcome this setback to record what is quite simply one of the most infectious and affecting albums of the 21st century.
The album opens with the blistering guitar assault of 'Salt Sweat Sugar' (formerly 'Bleed American'), an astonishing combination of volcanic riffage, perfect melody and angry lyrics (the song details the struggle of coal miners). 'A Praise Chorus', which follows, is 'classic' Jimmy Eat World - a furiously energetic opening, with the song gradually building up to a wonderful, emotional and blurred final coda ('I wanna always feel like part of this was mine/I wanna fall in love tonight'). It's pulsating, thrilling, moving - everything a song should be. Exhiliarating single 'Sweetness' is also all of the above, and like almost every song on the album is crushingly, bruisingly emotional ('Stumble till you crawl/Sinking into sweet uncertainty').
The pure poppy perfection of 'The Middle' enhances and exacerbates the terribly important message of the song (the song is a sympathetic and incredibly uplifting message to the millions of people struggling to comprehend the cruelty of people and the world - 'Just be yourself/It doesn't matter if that's good enough for someone else/It just takes some time/Little girl you're in the middle of the ride/Everything, everything will be just fine'). 'Your House' is a tender, unashamedly romantic and effortlessly catchy acoustic track, again building up to a very moving climax.
The album's two most outstanding songs are tracks six and seven, 'Hear You Me' and 'If You Don't, Don't'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy takes over World 21 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This band has been threatening greatness for two albums and has finally come up with their undeniable masterpiece. While 'Static Prevails' and 'Clarity' were both excellent albums, there was something missing, the something that avoids all other efforts and only makes it into a truly classic piece of work. What that something is, I will probably never know but 'Bleed American' has it in droves.
It is at once both hard-edged and punky while still retaining the soft approach, deftly executed, that has served them so well in the past. While the record holds on to the distinctive sound that they had created, a sort of funny hybrid between emo-rock, punk and pure, unashamed pop, there is a new element at work here. It is hard to put a finger on what is different because the tracks are very much moulded in the shape of their previous incarnations but an overriding confidence and assuredness seems to add another element. You just have to press play on the first track and hear the first riff strike you like shock treatment to know what i am talking about. The title track is an anthem, a classic and it paves the way for an outpouring of other brilliantly envisioned and honed tracks that will remain in your head and no doubt in your stereo for weeks, months, years. The second track, 'A Praise Chorus' is toned down slightly but still retains a punk sound rapped in a beautiful bed of fuzzy emo-rock quitar. The refrain is magnificent, awe-inspiring. The genius does not let up. 'Middle' is another anthemic track that is so catchy it cannot be real. Will the barrage of quality tunes never end? No! 'Your house' follows, a ballad. If it was possible for a song to physically glitter, this one would.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect rock entertainment 22 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Like many people, I came to Jimmy Eat World through Bleed American, their most immediately accessible album. This often means that the songs fade through repeated listening, and that other albums offer a better long term prospect, but in my opinion this is easily the best they've produced.
Salt Sweat Sugar is a blistering start, all chugging guitars and shouted chorus, before moving into more melodic territory for the next few songs, including the infectious The Middle which briefly threatened to take JEW mainstream in the UK. It didn't though. Then we're on to the album's highlight, the single Sweetness. This song is so simple, so loud, so perfect, its the song we should all have written. The next song, the name of which escapes me, is almost as good, before the quality starts to waiver very slightly towards the end.
Nonetheless, this is an album that improves with listen after listen, with a new song each week becoming your favourite off it. This is extremely high praise in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweetness indeed!! 29 Jun 2005
By Jems
Format:Audio CD
I recently discovered Jimmy Eat World after the song My Sundown played on one of my favourite TV shows. I bought this album and am really impressed with the band and the variation of different sounds on the album is stunning. My Sundown is a slow, ballad which sounds like a spring morning and makes me smile everytime I hear it and I was almost expecting the rest of the album to continue in that vain. I was wrong.......but not in a bad way. The album is rock music at it's finest - both loud rock (Bleed American), sing along rock (The Middle), pop rock (If You Don't, Don't) and soft rock (Hear You Me) music feature alongside one another and create an album so beautiful and varied I am positive everyone can find at least one song on it which they love.
Emo is the genre the band want to be placed in and in this album they certainly create emotion through their music with a wonderful complilation of songs for everyone to love and enjoy.
If you want to try Jimmy Eat World I would personally start with Futures, their more recent album which I love even more, but Bleed American is a terrific album for any mood.
