I am a fellow Mesa resident and have been following the band for three years now. I do my own sort of marketing for them, trying to get my friends to listen to them and talking them up. They truly changed the way I think of, view, and listen to music. It's the first time I have ever felt the music deep inside. Sorry if this may sound weird to you, but I can't really explain in words how much their music touches me. From one fan to the next, I hope you can understand what I mean. Thank you again for sharing their story.

You're welcome: I've been waiting for someone to write a piece like that on Jimmy Eat World for a long, long time. Thank you.

Fan club: As a 30-year-old, I don't fit into the fan categories of female teens or guys who don't want to be on the football team. But I can't remember the last time I bought a new CD and listened to it over and over again, as I did with Bleed American. It's a shame that this extremely talented and independent-minded band didn't get the attention it deserved with Clarity. However, it has been pure joy to hear them on the radio, see them on television and get all the press coverage they are finally receiving. They've worked hard and deserve all the best. Okay, now I'm gushing like a teenage girl!

Jim-dandy: I just finished your cover story about Jimmy Eat World and was compelled to write. It was absolutely wonderful! By far the most revealing article on the band yet, and the best article from you I've read. New Times hasn't had a truly great music story on the cover in ages, so thanks for bringing back some former glory to the mag!
