EDITORS’ NOTES

Though largely ignored upon its 1999 release, many fans now regard Clarity as Jimmy Eat World’s definitive album. It catches the band in splendid transition, caught between the raw indie punk of their early years and the soaring radio pop of their later years. This album marks the point where guitarist Jim Adkins assumed vocal duties. From Clarity on, Jimmy Eat World’s signature would be the tension between restless and often highly advanced instrumentation, and Adkins’ insistently lovely singing. The soaring effect created by this tension is best experienced on “For Me This Is Heaven,” “Ten,” and “Clarity.”
