Bleed American and everything that came before it is all solid. I kinda lost touch with them after that.

Futures (the one after Bleed American) is probably my second favorite (behind Clarity but before Bleed American). I find the ones after those to all be really solid, though not on the level of those three.

Absolutely love this band. Clarity, Bleed American and Futures are all killer albums. Static Prevails and Chase This Light are B+ albums. Damage was a nice rebound after the mediocre Invented.

I'm going to their homecoming show in Tempe on the 30th. And I'm contemplating a trip down to Tucson the night before.

Fucking awesome! You'll have to let me know how they are.


I'm pleasantly surprised with how much Damage has held up. It's a slow grower compared to most other Jimmy albums, but I keep finding new things I dig about it when I go back to it. I think No, Never is probably my favorite at the moment.

I just read some reports from the Futures 10 tour.

Fuck. I kinda want to get on a plane and go see it somewhere now.

I saw these guys on tour with Weezer and Tenacious D in 2001. I had never heard them before and left the concert able to sing the choruses to four or five of their songs -- just immaculately catchy stuff. I used to listen to "Clarity" and "Bleed American" (which at the time was being sold as a self-titled release because of 9/11) all the time; they ended up being one of the first bands to introduce me to the idea of "indie" music, at least in the sense that it wasn't readily available to be heard on standard FM radio.

That said, I haven't listened to them in over a decade.

This band is good? I remember liking some songs off one album when I was like 12 or 13, didn't last long, as I wasn't a big music listener when I was that young.

From Clarity through Futures, this band was great. They're still as enjoyable live as nearly anyone out there.

Am I wrong to lump this band in with others such as Good Charlotte, Fallout Boy, Panic at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, etc.?
