Well first of all I've never been a big Jimmy Eat World fan, until I heard Pain of this album, I figured hey what the heck, I might as well buy it. Well luckily I love it. The sound of this CD is amazing, they can play some awesomley hard riffs or slow it down a bit and give him a chance to really sing.

The lyrics were good, nothing special but good. Some of the songs can really speak to you from their lyrics while others make you scratch your head. How ever I love his voice, it goes so well with the point he trys to get across and mixes well with the guitars. I think the lyrics can be powerful and life changing to the right person listening.
Overall Impression — 10
I found that this CD was much better than Stacic Prevails, and Bleed America. My favorite song is by far Work. I never knew a song could change my life so much, but it has really influenced me for the better. If it were stolen or lost, I'd definatley run to Best Buy and get a new one.
