Where Bleed American sugar-coated Clarity and Futures kept a dark vibe underneath its sound, Chase This Light from Jimmy Eat World sounds completely celebratory. “Big Casino”, both the opening track and lead single, set up the mood and atmosphere with huge choruses and carefree lyrics. Adkins gleefully celebrates his success all while making a metaphor for the entire industry, seeing it as each band picked out of a random library. Producer Butch Vig accentuates their quiet to loud song structure by making the two dynamics extremely different, and the choruses now sound immense. As with almost all the band’s other albums, Chase This Light perfectly balances itself out between catchy pop rock and more atmospheric ballads. Overall, this album takes the pop rock sound of their latest albums and perfects the style, complemented with Butch Vig’s flawless production skills. Again, the choruses sound bigger and catchier than ever. The superb vocal harmonies always laced throughout the band’s music makes its biggest appearance ever, adding a whole new depth to the sound.
