Chase This Light

Artist: Jimmy Eat World
Release Date: October 16, 2007
Stand Out Songs: Dizzy, Big Casino, Dizzy (Acoustic Version)

Fun Facts: Debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 (US). Six different tracks were released as "bonus tracks", in numerous countries.
Favorite Lyric(s):"If everything I meant to you / You can lick and seal then fold in two / Then I've been so blind."

Thoughts: I've loved Jimmy Eat World ever since I finally heard them two years ago. Both Clarity and Futures quickly became two of my favorite albums. Jimmy continues their reign with yet another great album. It's everything I have come to expect from them - great/catchy melodies, fast/driving guitars, and great lyrics. That said, I would have liked to hear more slow songs that go on forever; the ones Jimmy does so well. I gave it this score mostly because I felt like the majority of the songs were at the same tempo, same temperament, the same feeling. I wanted more variety, especially since those are the Jimmy Eat World songs that I gravitate to the most.

Bottom Line: 80 / 100
