This album isn't for heavy, darker music lovers, but is more of a lighter version of Blink 182. Jimmy Eat World have a powerfull and striking sense of rhythm. The album starts off strongly with Salt Sweat Sugar and A Praise Chorus which are both vibrant and energetic with plenty of power. These are balanced by some more mild, tranquil tracks including Hear You Me and Sundown, the latter just slightly boring. These provide a strong contrast to the darker Get It Faster, which begins with eerie, distorted sounds; continuing with a steady beat throughout the song which is fairly quiet during the verses building up the tension before it suddenly becomes loud and heavy during the chorus. Jim Adkins makes good use of his voice, which is slightly reminiscent of Savage Garden's sound at some points. The band use an impressive range of instruments, proving their talent and ability. The album captivates Jimmy Eat World's style of rock with a delicate, sensitive side.
