View Full Version : Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light

It's not Futures and it sure as fuck isn't Bleed American and I'm also starting to think Butch Vig is the shittiest producer ever and should stop having anything to do with my favourite bands, BUT - I really dig it.

I don't expect a whole lot from Jimmy, I'll say right up front. But they deliver what I did expect from them - catchy, awesome pop-rock tunes of varying kind (and on this record quality). They don't have to re-invent themselves, in fact I'm quite tired of bands doing that, or attempting and desperately failing.

An odd thing: the first 6 tracks are all amazing but after that, the album gets sort of mediocre. Out of the UK bonus tracks, I like Distraction better.

Favourite songs; Let It Happen, Big Casino, Always Be, Here It Goes, Gotta Be Somebody's Blues.

Maybe I just *really* like Jim Adkins' voice.

I haven't had a chance to check this whole album out yet, and to be honest i don't really expect big things from it.

*review coming soon*

Would you mind uploading it in the music sharing thread?

I'm really liking it. It's probably their best work since Bleed American (their best effort imho), Futures was alright, but i only really liked a couple songs on it. But yeah, Big Casino, Let It Happen, Carry You and Chase This Light are definitely the standout tracks.

im loving it, most of the tracks remind me of jazzed up versions of the authority song and i feel the album is more poppy than previous ones which.I think it flows really well and im loving Electable and firefight however unlike there other albums theres no huge stand out tracks like pain get it faster or your new aesthetic in my opinion.

Would love to but sadly they toured the US during the WRONG MONTH as I was there in September. :P

I heard one of their new songs on the radio, i dont remember the title, it was good but I didn't really see anything spectacular about it. Maybe it was just a bad track or something, because i generally love JEW
