I have had time to think that Jimmy Eat World is a severely underrated band. I’ve been listening to Chase This Light a lot lately (in the car, on the way to school, getting ready in the morning, etc.) and I just decided that it’s just a good album. And most of that comes from the fact that they’re just a great band.
I’ve never seen them play live, but I would love to. I have no idea if this is true or not, but I have a feeling that they don’t have lots and lots of editing on their albums. Sometimes, yes. But I don’t think they’re edited past the point of recognition.
I also think a lot of that is talent. They use their instruments well and have a way with words. They write a song, and it’s just that – a song. It’s not some auto-tuned piece of repetitive crap.
I like ‘em, to say the least. They’re like a classic piece of your music collection that you’ll never want to be without.
All of this praise was inspired from Chase This Light. I didn’t even start on Bleed American.
