I just got their Annual Holiday Single (talk about U2-time being slow ). Now I only need to find my turntable to play it.



And oh, 13 August, Ahoy, Rotterdam!!!

Wrong answer . If you're starting fresh, listen to the full album experience. It would be especially cool to be able to go back to the beginning and experience their evolution in chronological order!

LBC

Eddie is amazing in the way that he has changed the lyrics (and meanings of lyrics) of his songs over the years in the live concert setting. LBC, in particular, is pretty special.

Of course, there's the way he switches it to "let the show begin..." when the song opens a concert. But also, the line about the Roskilde tragedy - "Lost 9 friends we'll never know, 2 years ago today" has been changed numerous times in concert since the Riot Act tour. On one of the bootlegs I have he changed it to "Lost 9 friends we get to know more and more each day"...and I actually just got chills typing that out right now.

EDIT - One more thing...I believe the story goes that Eddie and Boom wrote the song on the first night that they met in Hawaii. Fucking awesome.

"Comatose" strikes me as your type of song.

It amazes me that you have it in The Netherlands, and mine has yet to show up in Massachusetts. Santos L. Halper needs a new mailing system.

Yes, it doesn't push the envelope in terms of their sound, but it does have some really heartfelt lyrics, and great guitar-rock. 'Inside Job'

RIOT ACT is a great album, probably their most underrated.

Love boat captain, and Save You are fantastic songs!
Cropduster!

An inside scoop on the new album: Hear>You>Me: The new Pearl Jam album The website is a little screwy in terms of loading, so you might have to toggle with it or press stop on your browser at just the right time to read...it's sort of a cryptic review, but intriguing, nonetheless!

Pushing the sonic envelope is not what Pearl Jam is about. yeah, like you said, they just write great guitar driven rock and go out on tour and play those songs better than anyone in the world.

i can't fucking wait for the debut of this new stuff on Conan.

Hell, yeahhh!! (yelled in my very best grunge-like voice).

Five years ago, I probably wouldn't have posted this, because I hated the countless PJ comparisons and imitators, but this is pretty funny:
