Happy birthday to one of the best albums there is. Goodbye Sky Harbor still leaves me either smiling from the beautiful sounds or emotionally wrecked from the hard-hitting lyrics. And this is why I love 90s emo music.

The overlaying vocals at the end... fucking eargasm.

On a Sunday is amazing. Table for Glasses too. I can’t get into to much else they’ve done but that album is great.

My fave next to this is Futures. It's not the same but I love that album. It's what first got me into JEW

Fantastic album. I used to listen to it all the time at work. I'd listen to it when I was studying or doing homework because it was chill enough to not be too distracting. I love everything about this album.

Have you guys heard the new(ish) acoustic version of 12.23.95? Also fantastic:

 

And I've been in love with this version of For Me This Is Heaven for a long time now:

 

 

For any ska fans out there, a band called The Holophonics did an entire ska/reggae  version of this album, and I think it's actually pretty awesome:

Wanted some music on during work today, decided to throw this on because of the recent anniversary. I always forget how much I adore 'Blister' until it comes on. Hot damn.

That song is one of the main reasons I became a Jimmy Eat World fan. It's really hard for me to pick a favorite track off this album, but that might be it.

Exactly 40 days and 8 hours, if we don't get killed along the way

I will always associate Lucky Denver Mint with the end of 7th grade, just having it on my ipod and listening it to it while walking home from the last day of school.
