  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Album Review: “Damage” by Jimmy Eat World

Grade: C

Past emo rock sensation Jimmy Eat World is back with brand new music after three years since “Invented” came out. Struggling to find a label, Jimmy Eat World was able to find someone willing to put out their newest album, “Damages.”

The first single off the newest album, “I Will Steal You Back” has the same feel as past singles, but doesn’t exactly hit the same mark as in the past. The band’s aging and growing up; the growth is being seen in the contents of not just the single, but the whole album. While growth in a band is good to see, especially in older bands, younger fans will not be able to relate as well to the music.

The vibe of the album is clearly seen within the first track on the album, with lyrics like “We build, we box, we carry on/As people we forget/Strange we come to find ourselves/Not knowing we’re lost” (Appreciation). As time goes on, we change and become strangers to our past selves and without knowing it—we’re lost. The audience can relate, but maybe not as well as others might.

While Jimmy Eat World as a band is growing and progressing lyrically, the band remains just as mellow and soothing as they were in the past. The instrumental music in the background are worth paying attention to as the album progresses into the later tracks. But the lack of strongly catching, playful lyrics are missing, a feature of past albums that were well worth listening to over and over again.

Tracks to listen to—“Book of Love,” “Lean,” “Appreciation.”
