Released following the success of Jimmy Eat World's self-titled fourth album, Maximum Jimmy Eat World profiles the indie rock group's rise from the small emocore scenes in the mid-'90s to mainstream chart success in 2002. Jimmy Eat World's passionate, smart songs struck a chord with the youth of America while not alienating Generation X, for these four friends from Mesa, AZ, are their peers. Fans of the band will already know its story, but for a completist's collection, Maximum Jimmy Eat World is an interesting addition.
