4.0 out of 5 stars between the money and your every move, acceptance March 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is such a rough, abrasive sound it's hard to give this a 5. At times it feels like a 5, though. I'm not a big fan of Rock Star, but Claire more than makes up for it. I've gotta pay dues to tracks 5, 9, 11 and 12 as well. This is an album that starts out a little slow for lack of a better word and really comes around to strong finish. JEW's sophomore release "Clarity" is amongst my favorite cd's of all time and you can really see flashes of brilliance in this album. You have to give this sound a chance. There's a reason this kind of stuff isn't played on the radio, we live in a somewhat impatient society. All i'm saying is give this a chance before you dismiss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Give Up March 12 2004
By Dan
Format:Audio CD
I must admit, when I first got this cd I was a little dissapointed. I paid through the nose for it, and I wasn't that impressed with the music.....at first. I bought this thinking it would be like 'Clarity'(my all time favorite cd). Turns out, when I gave this one another listen a few weeks later, it was way different but just as emotional as Clarity. Tom Linton's voice takes a while to get used to(if you are used to their current lead singer-Jim Adkins), but Tom has his own style. His voice is a bit harsher, but I love it just as much. I also found many incredible layers to all the songs.
Below is a song by song rating.
1. Thinking...-It took me a while to get past the vocals on this song, but its now one of my favorites. The beginning is awesome.10/10
2. Rockstar- The guitar is cathcy but, this is the only song that hasn't lived up to Jimmy Eat World's lyrical talent. I never really got into this one.6/10
3. Claire- This was one of the only instant hits with me. Its one of the softer songs, but would be considered a 'hard' song on Clarity.9/10
4. Call it in the Air- This song has so much energy and I love it. This is another song that I had on repeat for a solid day.10/10
5. Seventeen- This or #11 would have to be my favorite song. The end is the best when the backround vocals come in during the chorus.12/10
6. Episode 1V- A great slow song, they could almost get away with putting this one on Clarity(but there isn't enough harmony)9/10
7.Digits- This song just explodes at about the 2 and a half minute mark. Its pretty coll but this song doesn't spark me like some of the other ones do.8/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Good debut release Jan. 24 2004
By t
Format:Audio CD
This cd shows the potential of a young, indie-influenced band trying to make its way up through the underground world, but look where they're at today, TRL. Too bad. With this cd they showed the hope of what never happened. I never would have thought that Jimmy Eat World would ever want to go so mainstream. This cd is fairly well produced, but i think some of the vocals are honestly a bit....bad? But that's not really what matters, their music is great, and it's a good cd. Buy this CD if you want a different band from Bleed American.

5.0 out of 5 stars best Jimmy Eat World album Jan. 24 2004

1) thinking, that's all (7/10)
2) rockstar (7.5/10)
3) claire (8/10)
4) call it in the air (7.5/10)
5) seventeen (8.5/10)
6) episode IV (10/10)! <--my favorite!

If you are new to Jimmy Eat World, buy this and Clarity, don't get their lastest one, its not the real Jimmy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not todays JEW but..... Jan. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
1.It's more punk pop than Clarity and Bleed American
2.The band has a younger, more hard sound
3.There are still lots of outstanding tracks, most notably
4. Same JEW, same sound, same attitude, same focus.
5.This is an absolute MUST for any remote fan of JEW. You still get mature and thoughtful as well as driven and rock-full songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best CDs ever Oct. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first half of this album, except for Claire kind of, is basically pop music, in the same style as songs like 77 Satellites from Singles, and even similar to the poppy stuff from Bleed American, although much, much better. Claire and Episode IV are the best tracks of the first half, even though for some reason I hate the first line of Episode IV. The second half is what makes this album so great, though. The version of Digits on here is a lot better than the one on Singles. Caveman is a decent song, although probably my least favorite because the words are so stupid some of the time (a monster lives in your backyard..a man with a shovel's going to dig deep down to find out where it feeds). The last four songs, though, are the best four songs in a row on any record, ever. On World Is Static, In the Same Room, and Anderson Mesa, it sounds like they were listening to SDRE and Jawbreaker at the same time on different stereos in the same room (yeah, like the song. that's probably where they came up with the title. i don't know). But that's not a bad thing, and, speaking of In the Same Room, it's one of my favorite songs ever. Robot Factory is quite different from those three, and I guess comparable to their song Opener or maybe the song Bleed American, but it's better, and in between these other songs it sounds even more outstanding. So, buy this for yourself and everyone you know for gifts. Forget about Bleed American. And I've had Clarity since it came out but for some reason I've never listened to it. People say it's good too. So, have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing
This album is incredible. It's not punk. It's not emo. It's just the purest most straight-up rock you'll ever hear. I first heard Jimmy Eat World when the middle was released. Read more

I have to agree with one of the previous reviews and say that this seems to be the only J.E.W. CD that doesn't make it into my cd player. Read more
