    Oh, man! You have to check out this new masterpiece from Jimmy Eat World. Everytime I get into an argument with my parents or girlfriend, or when I'm just having a bad day, I blast this CD. I enjoy how the cliche'-laden lyrics and forced sadness conveyed by the lead singer provide me with the immediate gratification that I seek. Fingers crossed for the new Hoobastank and Linkin Oh, man!

    Clarity and Static Prevails were both guilty pleasures of mine: not particularly substanitive, but catchy nonetheless. However, with Futures, Jimmy Eat World has made an album of such unlistenable dreck that it doesn't even pass as the empty-calorie fun of Bleed American. Garbage.

    Another fine fusion of volcanic arena-rock and cherry-poppin' slow burners. [9 Oct 2004, p.56]
  2. They've still got the high-energy guitars and the misery-laden vocals. But the songs are longer and trickier.
  3. Futures is like a rotten onion, revealing layer upon layer of foulness.
