JIMMY EAT WORLD - BLEED AMERICAN - VINYL LP
Limited vinyl LP pressing of this 2001 album from the Arizona-based emo rock band. Jimmy Eat World exemplify all that is the modern radio rock sound. Singing and playing with a conviction and sincerity that will melt the heart of even the most stoic of listeners, they produce rousing, well-crafted anthems along the lines of Third Eye Blind at their roughest or a more polished Green Day. These guys appear to be able to write ready-made singles at the drop of a hat, as evidenced by "Your House" as well as the title track. In fact, there is a rather shocking maturity to their material that belies the band members' ages (all in their 20s). Overall, Jimmy Eat World give the people what they want with Bleed American.
