Bleed American cd cover

Jimmy Eat World

Bleed American

Jimmy Eat World. That is possibly the worst band name ever. And with a lame cover and the horrible live performance I saw these guys (with NO image) give on some late night show, I was convinced this was a crap band. In fact I never would have given them another thought if I hadnít heard them again later without knowing who it was. The song Sweetness just rocks. It stuck in my head for like a week until somebody loaned me the disc and I found out there were quite a few other surprises on there too. They arenít metal, but if you like good hard rock with catchy hooks and sort of an 80ís pop sensibility, I have to recommend this disc. --Scott
