This should probably get a four, but the instrumentals and my high expectations pull it down. If you don't have all the J.E.W.albums buy them first, the other three are all really good. If your thrist for J.E.W. continues or you have one now(after owning their other records), buy this.
In all 3 of their major label releases they sport an entirely new sound. With most bands I'd be upset by something like this but with jimmy eat world each sound is amazing. If your in a certain mood you basically have three different albums to pick from. Who needs to buy a cd from any other band.
For those of you who just couldn't get enough of their first big release, Static Prevails ,this album is for you. The good majority of these songs are all before they got signed to a big record company and are raw and sometimes not in the best quality.
It's easy to see how some of these songs didn't make an album cut but overall I fairly enjoyed the album.
It starts off with the song appropriatly titled "Opener" It's nearly 6 minutes long but it will get your blood pumping. The album begins to get repitative in place. "H Model" and "Carbon Scoring" are two songs that mix things up, and even seem out of places, not really songs you'd expect to here from these guys.
"Ramina" is as cool as a rock instrumental song will get, and "Spangle" is probably the only song on here that could of fit on both Static Prevails or Clarity, but in being able to do that it landed itself on neither. The album ends with the original version of "Digits" it was later altered and rerecorded for Static Prevails.
I fairly enjoyed this album but there is one reason i really decided to get it in the first place. "What I Would Say to You Now" those words alone sum it up. One of the best songs Jimmy Eat World has ever written. You can't call youself a true jimmy fan until you hear this song.Read more ›
