"I'm not going to lie, I really wasn't all that into Jimmy Eat World when Clarity first came out. I was only interested in listening to ska and punk rock and wanted nothing to do with so-called "emo" music.
I don't remember what eventually got me to listen to Clarity but I had decided I would give the whole album a listen.Then make my judgment call. I honestly was blown away. I still, to this day, get chills when I listen to "For Me This Is Heaven." Sometimes I even cry. I love every note and chord on that album.
Clarity seriously changed my whole taste in music. It also influenced my decision to get heavily into music.
It gave me hope that I too could also make something great.
