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
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.
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!
