Reflections on Clarity: Tachi Denton of Snakes! Snakes! Snakes!

"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.

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.
