  • The album got lost in conversion from one infobox to another. Help us all out by reloading it, or by going the commons and refinding the original. Sorry for all the trouble. Eyeball kid 22:52, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
  • what's the meaning of "my sundown"? Suicide?

Genre[edit]

Jimmy Eat World did play emo stuff, but by bleed american, it was purely alt rock/pop punk, emo was on their static and clarity albums, not from this one on.--Samushi101 (talk) 17:55, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:BleedAmerican.jpeg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BleedAmerican.jpeg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 14:24, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Reviewer general comments[edit]

I will be reviewing this over the next week. Glanced over it, can probably complete it pretty quickly. Overall looks like it is in really good shape as is! Kees08 (talk) 05:11, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

6a: Recommend using Template:Non-free use rationale album cover for this image Kees08 (talk) 04:59, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

 Done

Recommend removing See Also section, as the link there is already incorporated into the article.

You have a point that the link's already there, but I feel like it belongs there. I'll ask a close colleague to see what he thinks on this. @Yeepsi: Whaddaya think?
From what I've seen, if the link is already in the article then it won't need to be under a See Also section. (I didn't get a notification for the ping, weird.) Yeepsi (talk) 18:40, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
 Done then.

Recommend removing less notable reviews, such as making a BuzzFeed list.

 Done

Recommend finding more negative reviews, if possible, as the review section only had one negative review in it. (I understand this album is in general highly regarded, but surely there was more than one negative review)

And I also understand that there's one negative review, but I do have critical comments from reviews which weren't necessarily negative overall, but did have some negative criticisms inside them. See The Village Voice and Blender reviews.
Good enough for me. Kees08 (talk) 04:59, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Recommend rewording this: "Soon after starting the recording sessions of Bleed American, the band met the head of DreamWorks Records Artists and repertoire division, who offered to help the band. The band considered it, but it was not until a year later when they returned to contact him."

 Done

Third paragraph of Lyrical themes and musical style notes many different artists lines that were used in A Praise Chorus; the track listing section only mentions one of those bands. Solve that however you want. Kees08 (talk) 04:59, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

 Done

Consider adding that Mark Trombino produced Dude Ranch and that it went platinum in the Recording section.

 Done Incorported it in there minus the platinum part which would be trivial for this article.

Add lengths to tracks in bonus tracks.

 Done

@DannyMusicEditor: That's it! Address citations, and at least respond to the points above. I do not expect you to agree with me on every point, just let me know if any of them are unreasonable. Thanks! Kees08 (talk) 05:48, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Kees08, I don't agree with all the tags you've added; citations are not necessary after every sentence (I learned that from a much more experienced editor than even me). They must be at least at the end of every paragraph, if it covers everything in there; if not, it's nice to cite a bit more. They can cover multiple sentences like I have here. Also, what clarity would you like on the booklet? dannymusiceditor Speak up! 21:33, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

The sentence isn't immediately clear to me. I assume it could mean that the songs were mixed (mastered?) at that location? I assume I am being daft, but if you could make it more clear that would be great. Your citations are good then. I wish Wikipedia had a better way of grouping information and citations together...as a reviewer sometimes it gets tough, because info in the paragraphs isn't necessarily in the citations, and it can be a pain to go through. Your case looks fine though. Let me know if anything else is unreasonable (I am working to be a better reviewer, only my third review, and all of them have involved you in some capacity). Kees08 (talk) 04:38, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

@Kees08: I believe all concerns are addressed. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 20:34, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
