To hell with static, Jimmy Eat World Prevail!,
This review is from: Static Prevails (Audio CD)
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.
