    In the years leading up to 2001's self-titled release, Jimmy Eat World racked up a sizable fan base through many of the normal routes for indie-rock bands (constant touring, split singles with popular scene bands, a few full-lengths and EPs on both indie and major labels). However, what propels Jimmy Eat World to another level is their uncanny knack for appealing to a wide audience by cobbling together the jagged guitar sincerity of bands like Fugazi and Jawbox with the hooks bands like Green Day and Blink-182 rode to multi-platinum success, tempering these creations with touches of power-pop and metal.
    The band immediately captures attention on JIMMY EAT WORLD's opening track (and one-time title track), "Bleed American," a scathing yet engaging fiery anthem made for radio (not to mention for uncontrollable singing along); better singles are few and far between. The band displays a punk sound for a few powerful songs before showing their skill at power balladry on the remarkably vulnerable "Your House." The true standout comes on "The Authority Song," not a John Mellencamp cover, but a power-pop masterstroke right out of the songbook of Big Star or the Flamin' Groovies.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (8/16/01, pp.101-2) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...An album of glorious potential hits...mingling anguish and uplifting melody...which is concisely designed and ardently delivered....sporting the tender turbulence that insular emo kids have enjoyed for ages..."
    Entertainment Weekly (9/7/01, p.165) - "...Bittersweet effervescent tunes..." - Rating: B
    Alternative Press (2/02, p.64) - Ranked #6 in AP's "25 Best Albums of 2001" - "...Added a healthy dose of pop their dynamic brand of emocore..."
    Magnet (9-10/01, p.96) - "...An album of modern rock for the Abercrombie & Fitch set..."
    CMJ (7/2/01, p.5) - "...The Red Bull of summer albums, a sugar-soaked, adrenalin-pumping, often soaring power-pop soundtrack for driving too fast, drinking too much, and...falling for someone..."
