Pearl Jam

Recommended Posts

It's the best Pearl Jam in years, definitely since Yield.

I haven't listened to a whole album of their's since Yield, so I guess this is a good one to go for! A sticker on the cover says you get free downloads of two live album's as well...

You should give their last a listen as well (the one this thread was originally made for).

Yeah. I went for Grand Rapids and Hartford, as they seemed to have the biggest mix of unique songs (though only based on a vague glance).

Yeah I got Hartford as well, looked a good one (and on a listen is)! I got the Camden one as my other because it had some of the newer ones on as well as Satan's bed :blink:

Just been playing the new 'Backspacer' album and it's their most accessible album for years; it's bloody great!

Only downer is how short the album is (36 minutes)

I'm giving this one a miss. Wish they'd come back to Scotland.

This - how many times have they played down south since the gig at the SECC? Honestly you'd think it would kill them to make an extra few hundred mile journey.

The old soft hearted Pearl Jam fan that I am, I'm really looking forward to their new upcoming album due mid October. Think "Sirens" is sounding promising:

Finally got a chance to listen to it. Infallible jumps out as an instant favourite along with Yellow Moon. I love Eddie's voice when he's doing the chanty Native American spiritual stuff and he goes for it on the latter. Sleeping By Myself is as odd and strangely out of place as I thought it might be after hearing it on his Uke album. Pendulum was a litte too moody, but I expect will grow on me. Some great old sounding lead guitar on Let The Records Play, that should be great to hear live with Mike going hard with the solos. Not a fan of Lightning Bolt still after hearing a recording of it from the Wrigley Field gig, it's not crap by any means, just hasn't gripped me yet.

Probably being overly critical because I love this band so much, it's certainly a more interesting album than Backspacer was and sounds more like Pearl Jam than they have for a while. Less than a week to go...

From the setlist notes from last night's Worcester gig - sounds like the album is doing well for them...

Ed says, “I don’t want to sound....un humble or anything, a little humility is good but something strange happened today. Our record went number one on iTunes in 54 countries. Now some of the them sure (lists countries) but what about (lists several other countries where they haven’t played). So that is why we are playing so long tonight because we probably won’t be back for about ten years because now we are going to play in “Vietnam, Mongolia-(continues to list countries)

'Let the records play' is a stand out for me. If a track sounds anything close to the style of Vitality then it's an instant thumbs up.

Looks like the Lightning Bolt vinyl has had some pretty nasty production problems - fan club has stopped selling it and stores seem to be returning it due to complaints...it does come with stickers though so there's that...

Alsorts - sleeve damage, double sticker in middle overlapped so across the last two tracks, glue lumps, poor low level sound, pops, skipping...just sounds like a total clusterfuck.

In other news this guy filmed the monitor screens at Brookyln last night...got some great vids!

My god. Do they even have quality control at those factories? Guess not.

I wonder if this damaged one will become some sort of collectable.
