Jimmy Eat World – Bleed American (3xLP 2011 RSD Edition 1260/2000)
This one is so big and beautiful it needed two photos to capture it all! I’ll be the first to admit that my first experience with JEW was on MTV, and yes, it was the video for “The Middle.” However, that moment spawned an ever-growing love for this band. Bleed American is probably one of the best pop-rock records of my generation. And although I love everything this band has put out, nothing will top this album.
Spinning this at the start of the summer is somewhat bittersweet as it reminds me of my teenage years. The memories of staying out all night, basically feeling like my friends and I owned our boring little city for a few hours each night, start racing through my brain. Of course we jammed this record as much as humanly possible. It was probably the most played CD in my car for at least two summers, no one ever complained though. You never heard “c’mon man we listen to this too much,” as you did with certain selections.
Such a classic album, such good memories. It is time to finish up this record, my coffee, and head outside to enjoy this beautiful day. Have a good day everyone, keep spinning wax, and loving music.
