This Day in Music – Chase This Light

Jimmy Eat World‘s 5th album has almost slipped out here without notice. I’m not quite sure how this has happened or if I’m getting further out of the loop. Since their self titled CD, I’ve been a big fan of these guys. I’m able to get this out so early this morning because this CD was actually the EW pick of my new copy of Entertainment Weekly I received. It’s getting glowing reviews by them and the sound of Big Casino doesn’t disappoint! And apparently the lyrics aren’t disappointing as well. Complicated feelings of commitment, trust, envy, and loss are the backdrop to the songs of Chase This Light.

“[This] is what emo should sound like: big emotions, sure, but also big hooks, big stakes. And big rewards.”

That gets me fired up! I’m so excited to get this CD today. Full review coming after my chock full of meetings but EW gives it an A!!!

Thanks EW 🙂

    Dude I love the Jimmy. I have all of their cds. I’m trying to get the Mud hoked on them too. I saw them live about 2 years ago and they were AWESOME. They sounds perfect live. I want this CD too! I can’t wait for your review. You should also pick up Clarity and Static Prevails that’s their first two Cds. Oh BTW the drummer is a Christian.

    WOAH! 1st listen through was AWESOME!!!

    Yeah, I’d heard that after hearing he’d worked with Crowder and the gang back on Illuminate. I didn’t know he had a blog though! Sweet.
