Wow I've been living under a rock, I didn't realize '2 concert downloads' meant 2 whole concerts. I love how they pretty much record each show professionally, but buying those would be expensive. I have the shows I've been to but that's it. (besides the Gorge set, and DVDs).

My god! This album...

While the first 4 songs are okay, track 5 and everything afterward is just nothing short of stellar! Force Of Nature has also grown on me. I think the whole song block of Just Breathe to The End is 5 star worthy!

There are few songs out there with a more natural and superb finish like there is on The End.

Looks like the numbers will be slightly less than the last album though.

You had me at "Stellar."

I'm going out now in the pouring rain to give the entire thing another listen.

This arrived on my Facebook feed earlier. Great pic!

considering that it's only available in one major retail store and it's still gonna close in on 200,000, that might be more impressive than if it had been available everywhere and topped the last album's numbers.

Meh...with it available digitally, I don't think it's that big of a difference nowadays.

But after a run of #2 albums, it's nice to see them hit #1, even with lower numbers.

Of course the numbers are going to be lower, even with a bigger hit single, we've seen how legal album sales are in the toilet, to get that close to 'Pearl Jam''s debut, especially with only one retailer, is quite an accomplishment.

Legal album sales were well in the toilet three years ago, too. Hasn't changed that much.

Actually it's gotten a lot worse this past year, mainly due to the global economy.

MEH.

I waited to buy this before listening, and had my expectations somewhat tempered beforehand--I wasn't expecting the world. I want to support this band so much, and they still have a major live prowess, but I find every album this decade so unchallenging, and more a collection of songs than anything else; there's no journey. While this album has a few standout tracks, it isn't anywhere NEAR the ballpark of Vs., Vitalogy, and No Code, or probably even Yield.

And are you guys reading these lyrics? It amazes me that Boner gets so much shit, because even though he makes you cringe at times, at least he's trying to write about something abstract or interesting these days. Even some of the better-sounding songs on Backspacer (Just Breathe, Amongst the Waves) have extremely generic lyrics. Then, you have a song named Supersonic (i.e. faster than the speed of sound) followed by The Speed of Sound? Are you kidding? I'm also concerned that Eddie wrote 5 of these 11 songs by himself, and of course this album comes off less musically inventive than the last one, string section notwithstanding.

It's a likable album, and I can't point to a bad song, but not a whole lot of substance there. I was hoping the return of Brendan O'Brien would also mean a return to the glory days of making a real IMPORTANT album, but I guess that ship may have sailed.

Too bad the second encore is a bit anticlimactic.
