Are you listening? In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy dive into Jimmy Eat World’s fourth album, the crossover success Bleed American. A follow up to Clarity, which is often debated as their best album, Bleed American shifted from an emo-oriented sound toward alt-rock, producing eminently recognizable singles thanks to accessibly simple lyrics and excellent power-pop guitar work. That Jimmy Eat World continued producing good albums – a lot of them – is almost lost in just how influential their earlier work was. Find out more about reception to The Middle, why Sweetness almost didn’t make the album, and how 9/11 comes up once again in this week’s podcast.
