It is the most amazing piece of art i have ever experienced, in fact. from the raw, powerful yet powerless "thinking... thats all", with its exquisite screams and builds, to the beautifully sad and touching "anderson mesa", that will chill you to your very soul, this album is brilliant. The first time I heard "rockstar", i felt that I was home . "Episode IV" is an extremely powerful song that starts slow and builds in power as you go. "Seventeen" is an angst filled song that radiates raw power.

The earliness of this album combined with Jimmy Eat World's inherent talent for the intense makes it more incredible than any of their other stuff, but also make it a difficult listen at first. watch the way each song fades or rises into the next, each piece setting the stage for the next... no one has made an album flow like this since the beatles with "sgt. pepper".

Listen to it once and you will be hooked by "rockstar" and "seventeen", they are the highest point of punk/pop... listen to it twice and others gain luster, "claire", perhaps the best combination of quiet beauty and rock n' roll on the LP... "caveman", with the tiny sound of crickets and a forlorn harmonica or accordian in the end, "world is static" which provides the title... and eventually all of them. This album is a must have for anyone who ever liked punk, pop, and especially emo.
