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.
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...
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.
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.
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
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...
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.
