Seyi Rhodes and director Simon Rawles visit America's murder capital - Chicago - where someone is shot every three hours. Black-on-black deaths in the first two months of the year are double what they were last year. The team are guided around the most violent neighbourhoods by volunteer ex-gang members who risk their lives as they try to halt the vicious cycle of violence caused by revenge killings. Chicago is where Obama started his political career, but in his final Presidential year, his backyard is still plagued by violence, and there's less financial assistance to help deal with it. While few people blame Obama for that, many black people here feel there's less hope for the future than there ever has been.
After being dropped by Capitol, Jimmy Eat World returned in 2001 with their most consistent and accessible album to date. Recorded entirely on the band's dime before they had a new record deal, Bleed American features compelling lyrics, driving guitar work, and insanely catchy melodies. Left to their own devices during the recording process, it wouldn't have been surprising if the band had turned out another layered, sprawling album akin to their previous full-length masterwork, Clarity. Perhaps sensing that they wouldn't be able to top their previous work when it came to spacy emo, Bleed American heads in a new direction. There are no 16-minute songs here, just straight-ahead rock & roll, performed with punk energy and alt-rock smarts. The title track sets the tone for the album with its blistering guitar attack and aggressive vocals. "A Praise Chorus" and "The Middle improve upon that formula, maintaining the forceful instrumentation but toying with the lyrical themes.
