Down To Earth Approach Another Intervention

Bouncing along with youthful energy and filled to the brim with poppy harmonies, Another Intervention is a record looking to fill the space left by Jimmy Eat World as they move themselves further into the pop music world. While still undeniably poppy, the band infuses their sound with the punk kick of early J.E.W. material, resulting in a slew of appealing songs and memorable melodies. While a little bland at times, the band still exhibits great songwriting on tracks like "Face First,” whose emotional vocal push-pull is the highlight of the album. (Vagrant)
