Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American (2001)

Updated: Mar 26, 2020



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.
