All The Time In the World is the quintet's sophomore project on Sparrow Records. The new record is heavily geared towards the younger crowd with the new release being backed mightily accompanied with "back to school" gear complete with Jump5 backpacks, pens, keychains, flashlights, etc. While bands meant for the mature audiences find Jump5 to be more of a joke (as well as most people over the age of 14 or 15), their music is for the younger audiences. Jump5 fills in the gap for a happy medium, creating music that has found its way to even Radio Disney and other mainstream places. The group's popularity is baffling but when pondered, understandable. The sugary sweet power pop that painfully inundates the music industry today with the likes of early Britney Spears and any of the many boy bands who have worn out their welcomes (most of them wore it out before they even began) creates an open door for these five youngsters to make a difference. We know where their hearts are and their goal is made clear.
Jump5 has basically picked up where Raze left off. Raze used similar joyous bouncy styles to reach a younger audience. Now, in Jump5's case, the younger audience is setting out to reach their peers. "All I Can Do" is a giddy dance track with a cotton candy sweetness while "Throw Your Hands Up" has more of that Raze feel with a chorus unmistakably reminiscent of Out of Eden. "Summer Song" is a super catchy song while "Joyride" has a chorus melody reminiscent of some of the bubble gum pop of the 80s.
The surprisingly short album (just 38 minutes) contains merely eight new songs with three remixes tacked onto the end. What would have helped the record would have been less remixes and more original tunes, or to tuck the remixes at the end after a complete record. Without the remixes, All The Time In the World is just an EP.
Jump5 puts together a fun project for the young masses who dig the sounds of mainstream pop but could use some Christ-centered new songs to feast their ears on. The older audiences might not really get it, but then again we're not supposed to.- Review date: 8/18/02, written by J.D.
