JIMMY EAT WORLD: Bleed American: CD

The only thing worse than emo is mainstream, major label emo. Scratch that. The only thing worse than emo is mainstream, major label emo with piano tracks. These jackalopeasses got no label support from Capitol and were eventually dropped. They sweated out an album, spewing all kinds of rhetoric about how cool it was to not have the corporate tyranny of deadlines, creative restraints, etc., but the Arizona heat has made their brains softer than baby shit after a day at the carnival because as soon as they finished the album they signed with Dreamworks. Dumb dumb da-dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb da-dumb. The terrifying thing is there was a bidding war for their services, which means more radio friendly emo ear puke to come. Jimmy Eat World, I dub thee the Rod McKuen of emo. Now please go fuck yourselves.
