4.0 out of 5 stars Different.. Oct. 9 2005
By Colin
Format:Audio CD
As written above (in the "official" review), the three new tracks on this EP were left of Futures because they didn't quite fit (a good choice, as they're very different than what you'd normally hear on a Jimmy Eat World album). Disintegration is an absolutely stellar song; darker than you'd expect, but still incredible. The other two new tracks, Over and Closer, are good, but not great. Both Half Right (cover) and the Drugs or Me remix are performed well, but don't really stand out. A decent buy for 6 or 7 bucks, but nothing it's nothing all that outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars They've been holding back for too long... Oct. 4 2005
By Fabian Wilfred - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy Eat World blasts the very skin off the toast on this EP, more energy than futures I dare say, heading towards an enormity of what I would call "post Emo fast pop punk culture". Hope comes from inside and Jimmy Eat World has never in my right mind sold out to the money making conglomerates of the music world, they remain steadfast as they were when clarity hit the racks. I love this EP; automatically the years best for me, sadly it's an EP not an Album.

Disintegration

Starts out slow paced and builds into this killer drumming resonating through the speakers as Jim Adkins spills his souls through words. No regrets here as the chorus hits, about the taste of a relationship through painful eyes as everything but the blood remains.

Over

A lyrical rhyme to every question you've ever had in a relationship, I just can't understand how they write about relationships and make it sound like its about everything you do in life. Love the whole works. You'll never be over this...

Closer

has an excellent killer power punk guitar solo towards the end...that leaves you deafening...lyrics have gotten more on the somber mood...but instrumentally a genius mix, Jim Adkins makes no fatal move here. This is Jimmy Eat World on fine print.

Half Right

An EMO powerhouse that rips right through your skin, starts off sounding like a Death Cab for Cutie tune, lyrically explicit mind you, awesome song.

Drugs or Me - Styrofoam Mix

Interesting, as a mix can get on any experimental level, a very different outlook of the band.

P/s: An instructional dose of Jimmy Eat World, worth every penny spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars its better after a breakup Nov. 15 2005
By moonlit panic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i'm a huge fan of j.e.w., i'v followed them since the beginning, and i think they get better and better. i bought this ep immediately after its release, which happened to be a few days into a rough breakup. each song connected very well with the heartbreaking situation, and is very open to relate to other's as well. musically, i think it is profound. it is a much more tranquil j.e.w. record, but each note seems to carry its own dark emotion. i am moved with every listen.

i think the highlight of the ep is the song "closer". it begins with a mellow riff and a wonderfully catchy chorus, and then explodes in the middle with a swelling, emotional, power-pop-punk instrumental, and then ends on the same note as the beginning. it is truly beautiful. i recommend this ep very highly for any fans of "clarity" and "futures", and any newcomers to jimmy eat world

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 absolutley awsome tunes... and the worst remix I've ever heard Oct. 26 2005
By Jason Kenward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Let me start off by saying that the 3 original songs and 1 cover tune here are absoluteley jaw droppingly amazing. This band never stops amazing me. The first 4 songs are a definate call back to a more indi sound, with layered intricate guitar parts and great lyrics. If they had ended it here, I'd give this short and sweet EP 5 stars, no questions.

As for that terrible styrofoam re-mix. Not only should the term "re-mix" never be in the same sentence as Jimmy Eat World, this is quite possibly the worst re-mix I've ever heard. I think it was put there as some sort of joke mind you...

4.0 out of 5 stars Progressive Emo? June 13 2006
By A. Estes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok, ok, they hate the emo tag. I'll stop with that. But when you consider the genre Jimmy Eat World are often lumped in with, they sure stick out like a sore thumb. Songwriting that is always heartfelt and top-notch, without being a bit corny, coupled with professional musicianship, these guys have always stood out from the pack. In 2004, they released the highly anticipated "Futures," which packed a whallop with huge choruses and hooky arrangements. To follow it up, or perhaps bridge the gap until their next album, this very small EP, "Stay On My Side Tonight," was released last fall and went by virtually unnoticed.

Too bad, as there is some excellent material here. Let's just forget the "Drugs Or Me" remix, as it is pointless and annoying. Jimmy Eat World and remixes just don't work together. "Disintegration" is a slow-burning, sprawling epic and deserves to be heard by everyone. "Half Right" truly belongs on "Futures" and "Over" is probably the most accessible here, but that's not saying much. The material here is not overly accessible in the slightest, which is quite a change for these guys. "Stay On My Side Tonight" presents the more challening side of Jimmy Eat World, and if you can handle that, then by all means, this EP is worth picking up. Just beware that it doesn't really fit in with their other material. Is this part of a sound the group will explore in the future? Or is it just aborted studio material? I'm kind of hoping the former is the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good as Futures Jan. 7 2006
By Collegiate Music Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This EP is quite impressive. Disintegration is a long, lush, spacious song and is just as good, if not better than anything on their "Futures" LP. The "Drugs or Me" remix is startling, in that it is like nothing JEW has ever done before, but worth listening to again and again. This is an excellent purchase for any Jimmy fan.
