Jeremy Enigk, ‘World Waits’ (Lewis Hollow)
Jeremy Enigk’s most memorable moments – mostly as leader of Sunny Day Real Estate – share a grandiose desperation, a feeling that he’s always willing to flame out to make himself heard. That admirable, occasionally crazy, devotion helped spawn a thousand emo bands, and while Enigk is older and mellower, he remains capable of stirring souls. The songs here may be marginally less interesting than his best, but it’s comforting to know that he can ratchet down the passion without losing it entirely.
