"Integrity Blues is Jimmy Eat World's best record since Bleed American." — Punknews.org, October 2016
"It's a soft, frail album Jimmy Eat World have here, but one that hits right in the feels. Hard." — Kerrang!, October 2016
Arizona's power-pop emo heroes are back with a diverse new album full of sonic riches and emotional maturity. Their album Integrity Blues includes "a tasteful mix of tender balladry & heavy shredding" that's already garnered a 76 generally favorable critic's score on Metacritic.com.
For more than 20 years the combo have married chunky chords with lyrical angst, soaring choruses with killer melodies. During a brief hiatus, the band went their separate ways with separate interests. Returning to the studio late last year with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Adkins, guitarist Tom Linton, drummer Zach Lind and bassist Rick Burch (a lineup that's remained unchanged since 1995) came out of the experience with a mature work that manages to retain the hooks and muscular bite of previous albums.
Meldal-Johnsen is the logical fit for producing the album, having worked as a producer and/or musician with both genre-benders like Beck, Air and Mars Volta in addition to more user friendly artists like Paramore and Tegan and Sara. The breadth of his experience allows him the opportunity find the right balance of soul-searching music for grown-ups while making it feel fresh and, dare say it, commercially accessible, writes PopMatters.com.
