I love ! I could approach this band in a number of ways! "The Band Most Unrepresented by their Breakthrough Hit Single": "The Middle" is not even close to their best song! "Kings of the Closing Song": These guys no how to use a pop rock epic to end a great album! "Goodbye Sky Harbor" (You'll either hate this song simply for length or sink into the beautiful harmony!) "Dizzy"-Closer off of the last c.d. 'Chase This Light"! So addictive and one of the best epic breakup songs ever! "23"-Gush, gush, gush! These guys are just amazing lyrically and musically at capturing feelings in a way that's poignant and not cheesy! "The Band that represents a genre (Emo) that transcends it": Jimmy Eat World is considered to be the Godfathers of Emo! Nothing against the genre as tons of music I like comes from it but there is NO WAY that they are under the limitations of that label! Here are a variety of their other great songs: "Bleed American", "The Sweetness", "Big Casino" (great rock singles) "Hear You Me", "Cautioners", "My Sundown" (trio of gaspingly chilling beautiful harmonious songs off their breakthrough album "Jimmy Eat World" aka "Bleed American) "Disintegration" (epic song with a feel like soul music IMO, forgive the cheesy fan vid, bleh!) Ironically, only one song I listed is off their best c.d.! If you guys want to check out the best introductory c.d. start with "Clarity": It is their most solid album track for track and where they really got their groove as a band in my opinion! That is all and I really believe that even with all the tracks I've listed I only cracked the surface of this great band! If you are a fan feel free to post more stuff about them and if you are new to them or only know "The Middle" then maybe you will get a clearer perspective of them now!
