Clarity (Bonus Tracks)

Clarity by Jimmy Eat World
Released: Feb 1999
Label: Capitol Records
There's not much here for gold circle patrons; the only previously unheard track is a demo of "Sweetness," which sounds like a tinnier version of the song that would appear on Bleed American a few years later. If the inclusion of that tune foreshadows the strapping commercial powerhouse that the band would grow into, the other material -- from the brilliant opening one-two punch right on down the line -- reminds us of how they earned it. With big beats and crystalline harmonies, this is emo in its last fit of sincerity, and Jimmy Eat World's break from the underground.
