Artist discography


It took Jimmy Eat World 3 years to release a new album with Futures in 2004,now the guys in JEW are generous and gives the fans a new 5 track EP only a year after the last album.
"Stay on my side tonight" contains 3 brand new songs,a cover of the indie rock band Heatmiser that was active between 92-96 and a re-mix of "Drugs or me" (original version featured on Futures).
These songs are no uptempo tracks but they are no slow songs either,the new ones oftens start in a soft way but then grows to arena rockers halfway through the song.
The opening track "Disintegration" is 7 minute long and also the highlight of the EP,quite a new sound for JEW where the atmospheric rock of Coldplay meets Peter Gabriel?s rhythms and the ending is superb - I think of the song like having sex,it starts with foreplay to continue with heavenly intercourse and then explode into a climax of orgasms.
The next song is a midtempo song called "Over" that breathes Travis mixed with Better than Ezra,cool tune.
3rd track "Closer" has no real chorus,it just goes on in a nice mood the first 3 minutes to get more rocking for a minute and then slow down in the 5th minute at the end of the song - a grower indeed.
"Half right" is a cover of a song I have never heard nor the band,Heatmiser was a 90?s indie rock band most famous for launching the singer/songwriter Elliot Smith.
Ok alternative rock no more no less.
The only possible radio contender on the EP must be the re-mix of "Drugs or me",this is a real different version for all that has "Futures" in their collection.
Like velvet for the ears,truly enjoyable!
Not a classic EP but real good.
