#BleedAmerican is essential listening and an essential for any record collection. Sure, you may know this album and #jimmyeatworld from the hits, “The Middle” and “Sweetness” but those songs are just the tip of how monumental this album and the band themselves are. Many bands that were breaking through during the wave of #poppunk in the late 90’s and 2000’s are either irrelevant or have broken up by now, but Jimmy Eat World always set themselves apart from those bands by bypassing the high school lyrics and aimed straight for the heart by dealing with more ‘adult’ centered themes which resulted in their fans growing up with them. The band put all their own money into making this timeless record without label support and laid everything on the line without any guarantees except for the fans that supported them. The result is an album that’s still just as fresh as the day it came out pre-social media and smartphones. My personal favorites off the record are: “Your House”, “If You Don’t, Don’t”, “Get It Faster”, and “Cautioners”. This is the 3xLP, 32 song deluxe version that features b-sides, and previously unreleased live and demo tracks and a new version of Your House. Machine numbered at 01722 and limited to 2000 copies.
