Format: Audio CD
one of JEW's earlier releases and one of the best. Each and every song is packed to the point of overflowing with emotion, heart, energy and takes no prisoners. A personal favourite of mine is the 7 minute epic "Digits". It has been written like a symphony with different movements; each with differing tempo and sound. The listener is introduced to a sublime, mellow guitar riff which gradually develops into delicately constructed arpeggios. The main body of the piece kicks in suddenly with screaming lyrics and up beat punk-esque drums and then winds down to bring your ears back down to earth only to then roll out with the next blinding track. If your after acoustic, relaxed melodies then this isn't for you. This is emo music personified and is inspiring for any hopeful, budding guitarists.
Gems like "Rockstar" and "Cavemen" remind you of the passion and quality of this band. I cannot find one bad song on this album - each time you listen you crave for more. This CD hasn't left my walkman since i bought it. If like me you've bought Bleed American and thought it was great but wanted more, this is the perfect accompianiment. I simply cant stress the quality of this album enough. Buy it and be enlightened

This is another cracker from Jimmy Eat World, and with the there new album 'Bleed American' they are sure to soon get noticed. This record is another cracker, like 'Clarity'. The first song (probably the best track) sounds strange first, but thats the beauty of 'emo' I suppose and shows, that Jimmy Eat World are capable taking a risk and succeeding. The rest of the songs that follow live up to the usual JEW standards of uniqueness, great vocals, guitar riffs, and at times ultra-catchiness, for example on 'rockstar' and the brilliant, 'digits' (a newer version to that of the version on 'singles'). You might just think im a hyped-up-obsessed Jimmy Eat World fan, but just give them a go, you wont be disappointed!!!

Having done the same as most of the people who have bought this album (i.e bought Bleed American first) I was torn between Static Prevails and Clarity for my next purchase.
I chose Static Prevails, and I wasn't disappointed. Initially, I was a little apprehensive, as it seems that they've since switched Jim Adkins from backing vocalist on Static Prevails to Lead singer on Bleed American, which seems to have been a great idea.
From the heady opener, Thinking, that's all, you know you're in for a varied ride, and track 2, the sublime Rockstar will literally blow you away with its combination of melodies and raw energy. From here, it's something different each track. There are a couple of tracks that don't compete with the rest, (Episode IV and Digits in particular) but what album doesn't have these?
Jimmy Eat World have a wealth of diversity at their feet, and If they keep their heads, and don't do anything stupid with their next album, it's a dead cert they'll have the musical world at their feet.

This album is obviously the first from Jimmy eat world and it is very different from their later albums, if anything it is more experimental. Not only do they alternate the lead vocalists but you can understand what raw JEW were like before they started to perfect their sound. Stand out tracks for me are rockstar, Episode IV, seventeen and caveman, although having said this any one of the songs could be a favorite depending on your taste, such is the variety of the album. For 9 squid this CD is a steal. If you like Millencolin, The Get Up Kids, Powderfinger, Something Corporate, Midtown, etc- you should already have this album.

First review ever, as I can't be bothered...
But this album really deserves it. There is not one single song that you just say "yeah, i kind of like it..." - each and every song is an absolute hymn to alternative music (this is not emo, nor pop, nor rock...it's just Jimmy Eat World).
The album is from 1996 but is superior to any of their subsequent outputs.
Go and buy it!! NOW!
