2.0 out of 5 stars Imcomparable to earlier efforts, 15 Dec 2007
This review is from: Chase This Light (Audio CD)
Here we go again, another alternative/ fringe band has been ruined by the currents in mainstream music. I don't know if anyone else thinks the same, but I find it so strange for Jimmy Eat World to have abandoned everything which made them such a sucess in Bleed American (or their self-titled album) and Futures. The vocal harmony, with those catchy repetetitive riffs so greatly employed in the Middle/ a Praise Chorus/Sweetness/Bleed American or the slow masterpiece hear you me are not to be seen, are wholly absent from Chase This Light. Less dazzling but solid in its own way Futures was a commendable album in ways this is not. I would not call Clarity 'one of the most perfect albums ever,' and far from insulting those who call it thus, would question their taste.

Chase This Light sounds like a pop album in the way Jimmy Eat World had never been. While 'Big Casino' and 'Gotta be somebody's blues' provide some high water marks, after listening through the album a dozen times everything just blends into 50 minutes of drivel.

On the whole a highly avoidable album even to the most stalwart of Jimmy Eat World fans.
