Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

On Bleed American, emo-rock band Jimmy Eat World exemplify all that is the modern radio rock sound. Singing and playing with a conviction and sincerity that will melt the heart of even the most stoic of listeners, they produce rousing, well-crafted anthems along the lines of Third Eye Blind at their roughest or a more polished Green Day. These guys appear to be able to write ready-made singles at the drop of a hat, as evidenced by "Your House" as well as the title track. In fact, there is a rather shocking maturity to their material that belies the band members' ages (all in their 20s). While they sometimes veer into cringe-worthy power-ballad territory, overall Jimmy Eat World give the people what they want with Bleed American. --Ike Bolton

5.0 out of 5 stars Great,Great,Great CD!!!! March 26 2004
By Jared
Format:Audio CD
This is definetly a spectacular CD! Jimmy Eat World rocks! At first when I got the CD I didnt care SO much for it, it was just pretty good. But now that I've listened to then more they are just AWESOME!!! I'm waiting eagerly for Clarity which I ordered a while ago. But here is what I think of the songs,
1. Bleed American: This song is pretty good not my favorite, mostly yelling. 7/10
2. A Praise Chorus: This is my FAVORITE song on the album! It combines an awesome bridge with a TIGHT chorus!!! It is just SO good! Beats The Middle by LONG! 10/10
3. The Middle: This song is good its not as good as some as the others though. Still a wonderful song, with great vocals! 8/10
4. Your House: Dont care SO much for this song. However it does have good, challenging vocals. 7/10
5. Sweetness: What can I say this song is just SWEET!!! It is just So awesome if you're bored just flip in this CD and I guarantee you you'll be singing and danceing along by the end! Very fun and Punkish, was my favorite song til' I really listened hard to a Praise Chorus. 10/10
6. Hear you me: The BEST slow song on the album great vocals, great music, just a great melody! 9/10
7. If you Dont, Dont: Doesnt really make sense but still a GREAT song and pretty catchy. Good harmony. 8/10
8. Get it faster: Not really my style uhh not so great I would rather it not be on the album. Its a good song, but its drowned out by the other GREAT songs. 6/10
9.Cautioners: This is a good song not quite as good as Hear you Me but still good and catchy, definetly a good chorus. 8/10
10. Authority Song: Do NOT listen to ppl who say this song is annoying, it is SO good! And it livens up the end of the CD, cuz most of the songs towards the end are slow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid album from a great band. Feb. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing album. What's great about JEW is how each full length album sounds different than the last one. They are able to change, stay fresh and still put out a great album. This one is no exception. It is strong from start to finish with songs ranging from slow to fast.
Bleed American: 10/10 It was this song that made me go out and by the album. It's a punk style song but a tad bit slower. The lyrics are pretty good in itself. You may have heard this on the radio as it was the first single. It starts out fast.
A Praise Chorus: 10/10 What more can be said about a song that has Davey from The Promise Ring singing in the chorus? This is another punk style song in that it is a bit fast. It is catchy and you'll find yourself singing along to it.
The Middle: 8/10 You all know this one. It was the big hit off of the album and can be heard everywhere. It has a Blink sound to it. But then again Mark Trombino who has produced all the Blink albums was at the helm for this one and the other previous JEW efforts.
Your House: 8/10 I'm not a fan of this song. It is a bit slower but it just doesn't do all that much for me. Yet for some reason i still sing along to it when it plays.
Sweetness: 9/10 This is a decent track. The follow up to the Middle. A mix between slower and faster.
Hear you me: 10/10 THis is easily my favorite on the album. It is a slower song reminiscent of Clarity. It is such a beautiful song with equally beautiful lyrics.
If you don't, don't: 10/10 Also a fav on this album. It is a little slower but not as slow as Hear you me. The lyrics always have a special meaning to me.
Get it faster: 10/10 This is another great song. This is more punk in style, along the veins of Bleed American.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow. What else to say? Dec 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
GREAT CD! Let's start
1 is a good, faster and harder song. It was used in the background of the Emogame. Too bad, because they were knocking JEW hardcore.
2 is such a good song, it frustrates me why they released it. Or any of their songs, for that matter.
3 is a good song, and it reminds me of summer every time I hear it. Too bad half the nation knows it.
4 is a very good, semi-acoustic set that is very emotional. Picks up around the middle a bit, but settles back in.
5 is an incredible song. Different, but awesome lyrics and music. Different formula than most of their songs.
6 is a very slow, emotional song, however I think they were trying to make it a bit too touching. Although I think the song pretains to a personal tragedy within the bands' life.
7 is a very good, honest and melodic song that everyone should love. Psychedllic bridge.
8 is the worst song the CD. I shake my head thinking about this song.
9 is a very good song. A slower, but wonderful song. Very moving lyrics. Awesome song.
10 is probably a song you all know. It's very catchy, and bouncy. Good.
11 is a depressing, self-conflicted song it sounds like. Very epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is one of the best out there right now! Nov. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bleed American is the most recent album by Jimmy Eat World. It is eleven tracks long and with out a doubt, it's one of my favorite CD's to have been released in the past two years. It has a wide range of songs that illustrate the changes the band has underwent since their first album was released.
The band has matured a lot since their older album, Static Prevails, and even their more recent CD, Clarity. I believe Bleed American is a catchier album; the songs tend to be a lot rockier then the older emo-esc Jimmy Eat World tunes.
The CD opens on the title track "Bleed American." This song is absolutely explosive. The intensity with which it is played is amazing. It is really the only song that opens and finishes with such great power. "Praise Chorus" is my favorite song on the CD; it really is just a great song. With its catchiness and cleverness, it proves to be a perfect example of the level of perfection the band has reached. The album has plenty of other note-worthy songs such as "The Middle," "Sweetness," "Get it Faster," and "The Authority Song."
There are also a couple of songs that don't reflect the shift from old to new Jimmy Eat World. "Hear You Me," and "If you Don't Don't" are two songs that are old school Jimmy Eat World. So if that's your preference, don't think the album will fall short. It really has songs for all types of music fans. The final song on the CD is "My Sundown." In keeping with Clarity's end on a beautiful note, ("Goodbye Sky Harbor") My Sundown is just another really pretty song.
This CD turned me into a big Jimmy Eat World fan. Yes I was impressed with this band and their earlier work, but their latest album was what did it for me. Each song conforms to whatever mood I'm in. If you like music at all, pick this one up. If you don't like it, you should seriously look into not ever telling anyone how you feel about it, cause we all really dig this album. Just buy this CD and enjoy it. It's good for you.
