Listening Post



As good, straightforward rock bands go these days, it's tough to top Jimmy Eat World -- and this 7-minute-long homage to Disintegration-era Cure could very well be their best song.

Here's a live performance of 23.

I love this song. I had the opportunity to see Jimmy Eat World perform live when they did a show at the Avalon this summer. It was an absolutely amazing gig and they rocked the hell out of that place. The small venue made it even better. I would have paid more than I did for that ticket and still have been happy. Honestly one of the best shows I saw this summer!

Thanks, Chez. I saw your nod to the Cure, and specifically Disintegration, and I had to check it out. I didn't know Jimmy Eat World had this in them. Now I have to go dig out Disintegration and listen to the title track a few times in a row. Like I used to when I was still a jaded youth. At least now I'm a jaded 40 year old and can still enjoy it.
