4.0 out of 5 stars Must have for die-hard and new fans alike 27 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
The singles collection is probably more likely to be bought by Jimmy Eat World fans trying to complete their collection without having to search the US for rare vinyls, but I think it will appeal equally to new fans as well. Although they don't go for radio-friendly tracks like "Bleed American" or "Praise Chorus" from the latest album, their post-hardcore roots are evident with the singles from their early career, opening into what can be recognised as Samiam/Jawbox influenced punk in the form of "Opener". They explore more instrumental emo with "Ramina" and "Untitled", which are easily the highlights of the collection. In summation, buy it!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars take heed-a warning 26 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
ok. i would only reccomend this to people who are pretty big fans and want to complete their collection. you can tell the songs are from their early stages as they sound in places, a bit samey and fuzzy.
however i like the album and i bought it at the same time as static prevails. both albums i found at first a bit too heavy and 'rough around the edges'.
however for big fans such as i, i would reccomend 'singles' as it gives you a peek into jews early days. if u listen to singles and then a song from futures you can so easily hear that unique jimmy eat world style but by futures they had become sooooo much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another blinder 17 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Jimmy Eat World from a friend, and as I like Blink 182, Mark Hoppus mentioned them too, so I decided to check them out, I borrowed 'clarity', which is one of Jimmy Eat Worlds latest LP's and its amazing! 'Singles' is an 11-track masterpiece with a collection of rare songs (vinyls etc), which used to be hard to get hold of before they made this. Some of the tracks on singles are different from there newer stuff, i.e faster, a bit punkier, but none the less absoloute class. The best tracks have to be 'opener' and 'ramina' (instrumental). Kerrang! gave this 5 K's and it definelty deserves it and I go along with this, get it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Post harcore starlets revisit their roots 3 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The most interesting thing about this album is that it helps you put into perspective where Jimmy Eat Worlds sound come from. These songs highlight the band at the start of their career, and are therefore less polished than newer recordings, but all the essential elements that make you love jimmy eat world are there. The heartfelt vocals, the heavy and screeching yet melodic guitar lines and "Emocore" sentiments, espcially on "Christmas card", will remind you of their newer material, but the faster, punkier tracks will highlight the bands musical roots. An essential buy for fans and a great introduction to a very special group.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album for Fans 21 Dec 2000
By Puoblo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Truly this album rates 4 and one half stars. Its not as polished as clarity, but then again its a collection of old demos and rare material. I truly love this album, as I do every jimmy eat world album. However I recommend that someone first buy clarity and then maybe later the Album singles. I do highly recommend this album though. Anyway I'm getting really excited for their new album which will come out in march or april 2001. I guarantee Jimmy eat World by then will be a household name with that incredible song called "sweetness".

4.0 out of 5 stars boston??? 3 July 2002
By starry0eyed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off, Jimmy Eat World is from Arizona. Jimmy Eat World's Singles, while a great CD, is probably at the bottom of my list compared to Bleed American, Clarity and Static Prevails. For the hardcore JEW fan this CD is definately a must since it groups together many songs that could previously only be found on compilations and splits. If you're looking for the more friendly JEW I'd stick with Bleed American though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Static Prevails the sequel 27 July 2003
By Tyler Barlass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Could Jimmy Eat World not stay consistant from one album to another even once?
In all 3 of their major label releases they sport an entirely new sound. With most bands I'd be upset by something like this but with jimmy eat world each sound is amazing. If your in a certain mood you basically have three different albums to pick from. Who needs to buy a cd from any other band.
For those of you who just couldn't get enough of their first big release, Static Prevails ,this album is for you. The good majority of these songs are all before they got signed to a big record company and are raw and sometimes not in the best quality.
It's easy to see how some of these songs didn't make an album cut but overall I fairly enjoyed the album.
It starts off with the song appropriatly titled "Opener" It's nearly 6 minutes long but it will get your blood pumping. The album begins to get repitative in place. "H Model" and "Carbon Scoring" are two songs that mix things up, and even seem out of places, not really songs you'd expect to here from these guys.
"Ramina" is as cool as a rock instrumental song will get, and "Spangle" is probably the only song on here that could of fit on both Static Prevails or Clarity, but in being able to do that it landed itself on neither. The album ends with the original version of "Digits" it was later altered and rerecorded for Static Prevails.
I fairly enjoyed this album but there is one reason i really decided to get it in the first place. "What I Would Say to You Now" those words alone sum it up. One of the best songs Jimmy Eat World has ever written. You can't call youself a true jimmy fan until you hear this song. It may not be in the best quality, and you may not be able to make out the words until a few listens but once you do you'll be hooked.
Do I recommend this album? Not really, unless you're a big Jimmy Eat World fan or you've got deep pockets. But I don't think this band has ever done anything wrong and I've never met a jimmy song I didn't like.
3/5

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliance on disc 3 Oct 2004
By Tim R. Haas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
first off, boston based? the editorial review is way off. jimmy eat world hails from tempe, az. secondly, in no way was this recorded at shows or whatnot. these are demos and singles from 7" records and other out of print rarities.

with that out of the way, let me say that this is one of the best jimmy eat world records, which dosent say much, seeing as the only one i dont recommend to everyone is bleed american, which is still a pretty decent disc. this album, however, showcases much of the subtlety and intelligence that these guys can cram into their sounds, and also shows you a bit of what they used to sound like when they were pretty hugely punk and punk alone. recommended tracks include what would i say to you now, opener, spangle, untitled (which the track listing dosent list for some odd reason,) ramina, and h model.

you wont be disappointed. unless you like bad music.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Like Perfect Jimmy Eat World Pop, You Won't LIke This 27 Mar 2003
By Tim Van Boening - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Truthfully speaking, the worst Jimmy Eat World song is better than 1,000 perfect Creed songs. (that has nothing to do with the review, I just wanted to say that) Anyways, this hew is a compilation of all of Jimmy Eat World's songs they put on...well...compilations. Top tracks for me are Opener (originally from Emo Diaries, Chapter 1...), 77 Satelites (originally from the vinyl version of Static Prevails), Christmas Card and Untitled (both from the JEW/Blueprint split 7" EP), and Digits (which later was on Static Prevails with new verse). This album is raw, good time music, pure and simple. It sums it up when Jim says "Straight outta Phoenix, boys.." on H Model. It's a raw, rocking good album. Simple as that. Go buy it and dance to it in your room in socks.
