Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light [Audio CD]

Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light [Audio CD]

Jimmy Eat World were sitting on top of the emo pop world before the release of their last album, Futures. Its dark, inward-looking, and more mature-sounding songs didn't wreck their career, but the record didn't exactly further it. With Chase This Light, the band returns to the straightforward, hooky, and radio-friendly sound of Bleed American and lightens up some in the lyric department in hopes of recapturing its position in the marketplace. They aren't exactly singing about sunshine and lollipops, mostly love problems and the ills of society, but the cloud of gloom that settled over Futures has lifted. The band is back to following the rough template of Bleed American and the albums that came before it, with a mix of rousing anthems like "Big Casino," "Electable (Give It Up)," and "Feeling Lucky," melancholy rockers with singalong choruses like "Always Be" and "Chase This Light," and sweet ballads like "Carry You" and "Dizzy" (which strangely sounds like an outtake from Def Leppard's Hysteria). Only the moody and dark (with strings) "Gotta Be Somebody's Blues" hints at the mature sound of the last album. Try as they might, Chase This Light isn't as good as Bleed American, Still, it's a pleasant listen and Jim Adkins has a solid knack for writing hooky modern pop songs. ~ Tim Sendra, All Music Guide « less… more »

Lovely Perfume For Women by Sarah Jessica Parker *I've worn primarily green/citrus scents for years--Hugo Boss Woman, Happy to Be--and was very happy with them. I smelled this first on a scent strip and was intrigued; it had the crispness I like in the greener scents, but also a softness I've missed in my scents, an unexpected light musk richness. I have weird chemistry & most scents are dicey on me, so I tried this half a dozen times before purchasing, and every time I tried it, I found something new to love. I'm 30--well beyond wishing to smell 'cute'--and this fragrance is exactly what I'm growing into, a scent for a sophisticated woman. It's not old, it's not young; it's mature, and equally appropriate with a sweater and jeans or evening wear. The only scent I bother with anymore. I've had great success with the life of the scent--I put it on at 8am and my husband can still smell it on me at bedtime--but I prefer that it be subtle enough that only a person standing next to me smell it; perhaps some who find it short-lived prefer a bolder scent. I'm thrilled with Lovely. I don't expect to change perfumes again for years.*

I want to give thanks to my good friend Azzrian Visions for teaching me how to make wonderful Medicinal Handmade soaps. This soap contains All Natural German Chamomile Oil, Cistus Oil, and Rose Otto Oil. Its great for people who has Sensitive Skin, and is in need of some moisture. It is also good for people with the following conditions: acne, allergies, boils, burns, cuts, eczema, dermatitis, problems of the scalp, rashes, insect bites, infected wounds, skin impurities and more. The scent of this soap itself reminds me of Lemon Grass, but it leaves behind a normal soap scent to the skin. No Color has been added to this great medicinal skin soap. It will leave your skin feeling soft, silky, and moisturized NOT DRY! I make sure to save a bar for myself to test it out first. When I bathed with this soap my skin was so soft. It produces a lot of lather! It lathers up just like your store bought Liquid Body wash. The Shaving Soap Base Contains no detergents, no surfactants, no sulfates, no alcohol, and no sugar solutions. It works Great for shaving, and wonderful for those who like to lather up! German Chamomile: This has a high level of natural matricin. It is a very strong anti-inflammatory. German 'Blue' Chamomile Essential Oil has that "deep water’ cooling and enveloping influence which soothes and relieves. This chamomile has a wide range of healing properties, which are hard to find in comparable strength in any other oils. This particular oil is of a high alpha-bisabolol chemotype. It is a great help to the skin because of the anti-inflammatory properties. The list is extensive: skin inflammations, acne, allergies, boils, burns, cuts, eczema, dermatitis, problems of the scalp, rashes, insect bites, infected wounds, skin impurities sunburn, abscess, allergies, hives and more. Cistus: is a small, sticky shrub native to the Mediterranean and Middle East. The essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the leaves. It is pale yellow-orange with a strong, sweet, dry-herbaceous aroma. Its odor effect is generally perceived as warming and restorative. Cistus oil is used in many skin care blends. Blend with German Chamomile to treat chronic slow healing skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, infected and inflamed skin conditions of all sorts. It is excellent for mature skin care for firming and toning. Traditionally has been used as a skin rejuvenator, treating infected wounds, skin ulcers, bronchitis, coughs, colds and1 flu, as a fumigant when infectious illness is around, as an ambient aroma to facilitate meditation. May be helpful during convalescence or when suffering from nervous exhaustion. Rose Otto: Rose essential oil, or Rose Otto: Steam distilled essential oil of rose petals is a great luxury. Otto is the term used to differentiate the steam distilled variety from the 'Absolute'. It is from the Bulgarian 'damask' Rose, cultivated since the 16th century, which is considered to produce the finest quality essence. Because Roses are such a wonderful part of the Bulgarian culture, the government actually gets involved to ensure purity of Rose essential oils! Some consider that even fractions of a percent can do wonders. This is the oil of love, that has many psychological and physiological applications. There is perhaps no better essential oil for women and men than Rose oil for use in treating conditions of the reproductive system. It is highly valued in formulas for mature, dry and sensitive skin, and its tonic action on the heart appears to help relieve cardiac congestion, improve sluggish circulation, and tone the capillaries. Rose makes a great skin oil for all skin types, and especially for dry, sensitive, or aging skin. Rose otto is also considered strongly anti-viral due to its high citronellol content (similar to Melissa), and has been used successfully to treat herpes legions. The scent is sweet, rich, and floral - exclusive to the extract of history's most revered flower. Though the rose is renown for its fragrance, the flower actually contains very little aromatic oil by weight. Some 60,000 roses are needed to distill a single ounce of oil, or about 60 roses PER DROP, a fact which brings the seemly high cost of rose oil into perspective. You will also receive a nice sized sample of one of our other great medicinal soaps with your purchase.

Scientists have discovered the world’s smallest fish on record in an acidic peat swamp in Indonesia, with a see-through body and a head that is unprotected by a skeleton, researchers said Wednesday. Mature females of the Paedocypris progenetica, a member of the carp family, only grow to 7.9 millimeters (0.31 inches) and the males have enlarged pelvic fins and exceptionally large muscles that may be used to grasp the females during copulation, researchers wrote in the Proceedings of the Royal Society, published Wednesday by the Royal Society in London. Amazing news.

Time may not exactly heal all wounds, but it can lend the perspective and strength to channel pain into something positive. Such is the case with Spoon; their perennial indie rock underdog status and disastrous stint on Elektra have focused and tempered the trio's brash energy instead of crushing it. Their third full-length, Girls Can Tell, reflects the group's lean, hungry stance in its spare, spiky, immaculately crafted songs. "Take the Fifth" and "Take a Walk" take Spoon's smart, bouncy, slightly tough signature sound to another level; while the ghosts of the Pixies, Nirvana, and Elvis Costello still haunt songs like "Lines in the Suit," Girls Can Tell's sharp wordplay, barbed guitars, and appealingly raw vocals prove that the group embraces their influences without becoming slaves to them. Britt Daniel's increasingly eclectic and expansive songwriting comes to the forefront on "Everything Hits at Once," a taut, brooding pop song driven by vibes, keyboards, yearning, and pride; "Me and the Bean" suggests the direction alternative/indie rock should have taken after Nirvana's implosion. This album is also Spoon's most emotionally eclectic collection of songs, ranging from "Anything You Want," a sunny pop song drawn with just a few artfully placed strokes to "1020 AM," a brooding, slightly psychedelic piece of folk-rock that recalls Daniel's Drake Tungsten side project. "This Book Is a Movie," an appropriately tense, filmic instrumental, and "Chicago at Night," a slightly spooky pop song with winding guitars and an off-kilter melody, complete Girls Can Tell, making it Spoon's most mature, accomplished work to date and a fine balance of fire and polish. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide « less… more »

This book is a heart wrenching account of what happens on a regular basis to the over half-a-million youth in foster care in our country. As a former foster youth myself, I cried and way too often related to Ashley's depiction of life in the system. Highly recommend this to anyone involved in child welfare, or to those with friends in the system, or those in the system themselves. A parent might want to read along as her life did not start off ideal but that's what makes this story beautiful. I cried and laughed, and loved the whole way through. I would definitely say it is a must read for more mature young readers.

The massive success of Jimmy Eat World's 2001 Bleed American propelled the band into the mass-culture spotlight, with the hit single "The Middle" seemingly popping up in every third movie released and the group turning in an energized performance on Saturday Night Live. Many, many groups followed in their wake, crafting a similar blend of melodic, anguished punk-pop and leaving Jimmy Eat World in the position of crafting a follow-up that set them apart from their acolytes. Futures gets around this dilemma in two ways. First, with the help of producer Gil Norton, the band polishes its sound until it shines like a slick '70s arena rock record. The guitars are stacked like thick diamonds, the vocals are way out front and buttressed by sweet harmonies in the choruses, the drums sound large, and the mix is loaded with sweetening from acoustic guitars, keyboards, and female vocals. In the process, they sacrificed the immediacy of the previous record, but they gained an epic and weighty feel. Secondly, the lyrics are much darker and more mature, including themes that revolve around politics, drugs, and despair. The piano-and-feedback ballad "Drugs or Me" and the bittersweet love song "Night Drive" are the products of age and experience the band lacked until now. The best song on the record, the very Disintegration-era Cure-sounding "23," sounds like it was recorded by a different group entirely. Some things have remained the same, however. Jim Adkins' vocals are as intense and heart-tugging as ever, and the band still writes hooks that will have you singing along before the song is half over. "Just Tonight," "Futures," and the AC/DC-sampling "Pain" are all trademark Jimmy Eat World punky pop/rockers with anthemic choruses, while "The World You Love" and "Work" display the sweetly melodic side of the band. There are a couple of stumbles (the decision to replace Petra Haden's charming vocals with Liz Phair's, the generic "Nothingwrong"), but they don't detract from the overall power of the record. Futures will most likely not be the sensation that Bleed American was -- it is too dark and inwardly focused for that -- but it shows a progression of sound and emotion that fans of the band should embrace.

Stran... In between getting dropped from Capitol and picked up by DreamWorks, Jimmy Eat World released a collection of early singles (Singles) and this split EP with Australia's Jebediah on the independent label Big Wheel Recreation. Strangely, Jimmy Eat World's "The Most Beautiful Things" opens the collaboration on an alt-rock radio ballad bent. One might think that the band would have taken advantage of the indie breather to try out something less obviously radio-ready. But the songs here do represent a transition between Clarity's spacy rollicking and Bleed American's catchy alt-pop. The second track, "No Sensitivity," jumps back into the fold with classic emo breaks and turns; sadly, however, the melodic bittersweet post-hardcore angst crunch makes way for some pretty soggy lyricism -- "I'm taking my kisses back from you-hoo/I want my kisses back from you." The gag-me mediocre melodrama will no doubt make countless adolescents swoon while decorating their Trapper Keepers, but mature audiences might be more than willing to give the kisses back to avoid the relentless chorus. The band closes its set with a hushed, more expansive version of "Cautioners," which later appears on Bleed American in a more watered down and cleanly produced state. Which brings up one of the more attractive qualities of this recording -- that it might better represent what the band actually sounds like. There's still that guitar-bass-drum crunch going on, but you can pick out the different elements rather than just one polished pile of wholly accessible sound. Jimmy Eat World superfans and completists will no doubt appreciate this, but the fair-weathers might do better sticking to the major-label fare. Jebediah contributes three decent emo-tinged rock songs, the first of which suffers from Kevin Mitchell's too-prominent nasal vocals, which might have been less apparent had the song not held its position immediately after the remarkably pleasant "Cautioners." The song, "Animal," also appears on the band's Of Someday Shambles. Mitchell's vocal style better complements the EP's final song, "Harpoon," a sweeter, more yearning offering. ~ Melissa Giannini, All Music Guide « less… more »
