Thread: Jimmy ****ing Eat World

    Default Jimmy ****ing Eat World

    The fact of the matter is this, the band made one of the greatest albums of all time, Clarity.

    Say what you want about these guys, since then they've put nothing but good albums out and never disappoint their fans, and that's saying a lot when so many other groups fail to "step it up" album by album (I'm looking at you, Interpol!). Each album since (Selftitled or Bleed American if you want to be hardcore JEW fan, Futures, Chase This Light [Admittedly, probably their weakest], and Invented) all lack tracks worth skipping.

    Furthermore they are a completely functional band that do their music great justice. They might not have a lot of stage charisma or presence, a very dynamic show of lights/effects, or a wacky band image, whatever, they play good music. They are an old classic "shut up and play" live band and cream of the crop for whatever you'd call their poppy subgenre.

    Now I don't know how to embed videos, but here's a video anyways.

    I've never caught any JEW live performance, but have wanted to for a really really long time now.

    Does anybody who has seen them recently know what their set consists of? Is it equally balanced with songs from all albums? or more "best songs"?

    I'm hoping for more clarity/bleed american.

    Maybe this will be like 2004, and they will just disappear from the poster and people will move on.

    I will admit that they are my guilty pleasure band, but that should probably be in the confession thread.

    Saw them live at a radio station show. They're OK, I'll check them out if there's no conflicts.

    Back in the day I had a coworker that was evangelical about JEW.
    I listened to them and thought "this band is unremarkable and made of farts"

    Revisiting them this morning I realize that I was more right than I knew.
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    I live in Arizona so I have been able to see them quite a bit. It has been a while but they do (did?) always put on a good show. I don't pull out their albums much anymore (and have lost interest since about Futures) but I would be happy to be able to see them at Coachella.

    Jimmy eat world is awesome, reminds me of middle school and my younger days. Clarity is a great cd. Obviously not an earth-shattering band, but it's fun music. I feel like they're the superchunk of this year.

    I gotta comment on this whole "Interpol's worst album is better than jimmy eat worlds best". Maybe that's because you like interpol and don't like jimmy eat world? It's all a matter of opinion.

    Jimmy Eat World kick ass. They always have, especially live. But honestly Invented sucks. I've never been disappointed in them until Invented. Has a few good songs on it, but overall it's a 6/10.

    Do not bring Interpol into this because they're newest release (which is the worst received) is still 10 times better than Invented. And why are we comparing bands like JEW to Interpol anyway?

    Anywho, these guys rock, they will deliver the goods. Do not hate. They melt faces.

    Being from Arizona, I do have a soft spot for Jimmy Eat World. If you are feeling nostalgic....their live show will make you feel like a kid again. They have really good energy live, and let's face the facts....they have never made a bad album.

    Here are some videos I took at their Tempe, AZ show on Halloween.

    I'm sorry man, I've been a huge fan of theirs for over 10 years. I've loved all their releases, but Invented is pretty weak. Movielike, Coffee and Cigarettes, and My Best Theory are easily the worst material they've come up with.

    However, I still love them. And they put on a killer show.

    I'm not a big fan of their studio albums but I have heard story after story about their live performances. I must see them in a Coachella setting. They will blow our minds!

    I'm not a huge fan of invented, but it isn't terrible....and I don't know what they will do at coachella, but when I saw them in October they only played a few songs off the new album.
