Jimmy Eat World contributes three typically solid songs. No Sensitivity in particular is quintessential Jimmy Eat World - catchy hook, melodic chorus. But being a fan of both bands, I can honestly say that the best Jeb songs are light-years better than even the best Jimmy Eat World songs..
Another reason why I consider this combination of bands somewhat strange is that Jimmy is a emo-pop band and appeals to a particular demographic. Jebediah is a pop-punk band, but the similarities end there. Jeb is fun, irreverent and frenetic. Think Jimmy Eat World meets Green Day.
If you are interested in checking out more Jebediah stuff, I would highly recommend the 'Slightly Odway' album, and in particular their b-side 'Simple' and the singles 'Jerks of Attention' (get the fast version) and 'Teflon'. That showcases them far better than the uninspiring Jeb songs included on this CD.
Poor, poor Jebediah.
At first glance, I'm sure these Aussie boys thought it would be a good idea to do a split CD with Jimmy Eat World. I mean, is there a better way to get inside of thousands of emo kids' bedrooms than tag-teaming with the reigning kings of emo-pop? The only problem, though, is I don't think Jebediah knew that JEW would be contributing their three best songs ever. To make matters worse, Jimmy apparently won the coin toss and got to go first on the CD, so who knows how many kids even got past the third track. Regardless, let's take a look at the music contained within this shiny plastic disc.
"The Most Beautiful Things" is a love song to end all love songs, with quietly plucked guitar strings matching quivering vocals. Then, with a roaring crescendo, the drums and cymbals kick in, sending the song down the emo version of a power ballad. This song is one of the most beautiful things I've ever had the pleasure to hear.
Next up is "No Sensitivity." This is the best song JEW has ever written, hands down. With it's fist pumping chorus of "I'm taking my kisses back, wooooah, I want my kisses back from you" and it's crunchy guitar and drum attack, this song will be stuck in your head for the rest of your life. The breakdowns and acoustic guitar are in exact places you'd put them in, the lyrics are exactly what you'd want to say at the end of a relationship, and the music is the perfect kind to get your head bobbing along and your[booty]shaking. This is the best Jimmy Eat World song ever. Ever.
The band closes out their portion of the disc with an early version of "Cautioners," now located on their new CD "Bleed American".Read more ›
