    Jimmy Eat World and Idlewild are both very good. But I prefer Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

    Idlewild with Bob were better than without.
    I have to say I possibly disagree.
    After seeing them on tuesday and seeing them in 2002 supporting Coldplay (when Bob was still in the band) I think that Gavin is 'better'. He seems to have much more charisma, he looks like he's enjoying him self much more, when I saw Bob, he just stood there looking a bit glum.
    However, I wouldn't know which one is 'better' at playing their instrument.

    hmm, bands i like but not mentioned here..

    well there is interpol, the arcade fire, bright eyes, the go! team, the shins, secret machines, the verve, pulp etc
    the arcade fire are absolutely stunning; their ep more so than their album, but I obsessed over my heart is an apple for weeks.

    and I've loved the shins for a good two years as well and love them. I'm not as keen on chutes too narrow but the rest of their stuff is mostly amazing and all I listened to spring / summer 2003.

    Idlewild were just generally better when Bob was still around (with the exception of The Remote Part which was average at best).
    Captain and Hope Is Important are good but 100 Broken Windows shouldn't be overlooked in an attempt to appear elite; it was a brilliant album imo.
    the new single, on the other hand, is terrible.

    hmm, idlewild have definatly changed from days gone by, but i don't think they've got worse, the song writing in recent albums is much better than captain, (although for me captain was better that remote part IMO) they've just developed all bands change with time. 100 broken windows is their peak for me, still like the old stuff but not overly comerical.

    Hmm, maybe it's because you saw Idlewild with Bob as a support act.

    I saw them twice, both as headliners, and it was the better gig. Not saying I didn't enjoy them after his departure; I'll probably be at the Shepherds Bush empire, but the atmosphere, the songs, the gig, everything was better with Bob. In my opinion.

    Agreed, 100 broken windows is their best album. The others are top too though.

    Who else likes Jimmy Eat World and Idlewild? They rock, but no-one ever mentions them here?
    Yeah I've been into Jimmy Eat World since their album Clarity. I saw the video on MTV or MTV2 (if MTV2 was around back then) for Lucky Denver Mint. It features the band trying to play basketball then ultimate frisbee against some other guys and they fail dismally. Totally frustrated from losing at everything, they bump into a bunch of bodybuilder-type guys and take them on. Great stuff!
    Jimmy Eat World were doing emo before anyone else, and before it meant being a little twerp who looks like he's crapped in his pants.

    Their eponymous album is good but very different...
