Review of Jimmy Eat World – Damage (Dine Alone)

Jimmy Eat WorldAfter their lackluster 2010 effort Invented, it is great to hear Arizona’s Jimmy Eat World getting back to basics. Hearing Jimmy Eat World get back to writing insanely catchy, melodic power pop throughout the ten tracks on Damage is reinforcement enough that the band has plenty of life in them yet. They might emphasize the pop side of their writing on songs like Book of Love and Appreciation, I Will Steal You Back and How’d You Have Me show they can still rock with equal abandon.
