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

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.

Jimmy Eat World have a way of writing songs that makes much of what's burning up the airwaves now sound trite and boring. Much like their current hit album, "Static Prevails" contains a diverse bunch of emotional songs, but on "Static Prevails" the band seems to go for a somewhat rawer and less radio-friendly sound, allowing their emotions to show through more. Midtempo rockers like "Seventeen" share space here with rollicking tracks like "Digits" and "Robot Factory," and more relaxed numbers like "Rockstar" and the terrific "Episode IV," one of the few ballads that don't make my stomach turn. At all times, regardless of what the particular sound is, the songs maintain an upbeat and emotional energy, with excellent songwriting. This isn't a band that endlessly tries to shove pop melodies down your throat; rather they know when to rock out and when to go mellow. In a refreshing departure from the pop-punk norm, the music here is rather lush and intricate, with a higher level of musicianship displayed than on the typical Blink-182 or Weezer album. I'm not going to say this is the best album ever, or that every song is a complete winner, but it still beats a great deal of the repetitive, grunge-derivative music currently on rock radio.

This cd is phenomenal. It's completely different from anything you may have heard before, in that it's so original. You listen to the radio and you get the same songs played over and over again, with most of the songs seeming so fake it's not even funny. Then a friend introduced me to Jimmy Eat World. I have since stopped listening to anything else.

All of the songs on this cd are awesome, and that's an amazing accomplishment by itself. Many groups will release a cd full of crap with one song they know is bankable, just so they can cash in. Not so here. It's hard to put into words how good this stuff is. The first time I heard "rockstar", i felt that I was home lol. "Episode IV" is an extremely powerful song that starts slow and builds in power as you go. "Seventeen" is an angst filled song that radiates raw power. The amount of vareity you get is stunning, with all of it being GOOD.
In short, Jimmy Eat World has instantly become my favorite band, and this cd is quite possibly the best cd I have ever listened to. It's that good. Very Highly Recommended.
