(Don't) Lay Off Jimmy

"Jimmy's been checking you out....Jimmy likes what he sees."
-- Jimmy, Seinfeld

What about that title reminds me of a Glass Tiger? Oh well...

Somehow, someway, Jimmy Eat World still manage to amaze me.

If you haven't heard their new album, Futures, I recommend it highly....think a fusion of the pop hooks of Bleed American and the vunerablity in Clarity.

If you have listened to it once or twice and dismissed, don't throw in the towel.

Much like the great Wilco, this album will grow. Just add a little water and love.

Patience, my friend.
An aside regarding the title:

Kirsten and I have discussed before about the whole parentheses thing with some pop bands. We basically concluded that the record execs enforce this tactic based on their view of the buying masses as "dumb". Surely the only way we'll know that song is if the title is expanded to include the whole line in the song's hook.

Hook? Line? Ah, that's too easy.
