Jimmy Eat World are back with a fall treat, the Stay On My Side Tonight EP. The Arizona quartet has followed up their critically acclaimed, soon-to-be-platinum album Futures with a few special gems. The EP includes 4 new songs including a cover of 'Half Right' originally performed by the late'indie king Elliott Smith's former project Heatmiser, and a stunning remix of the epic Futures album track 'Drugs Or Me' by the uber-cool Belgian remixer Styrofoam. Interscope. 2005.

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
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.
Really how you receive this album will depend on your tastes to the evolving style of Jimmy Eat World. If you liked "Futures" this album is a nice extension (hence EP) to the album. While I agree that the overall pace of the songs is alot more tranquil in comparison to "Futures" and "Bleed American", I wouldn't take it as far to say that this is on any sort of equal plain to composition or execution to "Clarity" or "Static Prevails". This EP definitely made a move towards more a more mellow and subdued sound, but there's an element missing. Originality was lacking in this album. The lyrics were cliché, even some of the licks seemed to be stolen from some one hit wonder. (Listen to Over).
The main reason that i bought this aside form the fact that I'm a Jimmy supporter, was because of the Parental Advisory - a first for JEW. One review suggeted that it was because of the Heatmiser Cover, "Half Right". I think there is alot more than just that. The lyric subject matter was alot more alcoholic and sexual innuendo oriented. Which I found, on a personal note, to be tasteless and without meaning. Not so much because of the subject matter but because of its execution. This, in my mind, brings up a whole other matter of censorship, I own full albums with swear words galore and there is not one Parental Advisory on it. Which brings in to my mind to question my mind to quesiton if this album really deserved the parental advisory warning. That's for the listener to decide.
Overall, it's an interesting listen. (excluding of course the remix of "Drugs or Me" at the end. I believe that JEW can be remixed and sound good, but this was was ridiculously horrible.) It's definitely worth checking out if you're already a fan. If this is your first encounter with JEW, I'd recommend you give "Clarity" a listen first.
