Fuck. It's been almost ten years since Binaural and the awesome 2000 tour. When are they going to have a new album?

does not add up, indeed...

unless it's late march i would think they'd have to start selling soon... certainly a lot better than U2's practice of selling tickets 10 months in advance of the show, but still would think they'd at least have an announcement out by now if they were really starting in march.

this reminds me... i remember getting killed by the u2 sheep when i bitched about u2 announcing and selling tickets for june shows in september of the year before... and here we sit with just one new york show which technicaly isn't sold out yet.

yea... that decision really worked wonders.

Riot Act (2002) Pearl Jam (2006) Backspacer (2009) 3 new albums since Binaural in (2000), and each album was supported by a world tour.

I think he's saying that Pearl Jam hasn't done anything worthy of acknowledgment since Binaural (I hope so, anyway; the fewer s I can use, the better). The thing is, uh, it's not as if Binaural was a classic or anything.

Fuck it.

Binaural was a classic for me...great songwriting and a nice change of pace with the very dark (and dank?) production style of Tchad Blake. That tour was legendary and provided us the excellent Touring Band DVD...my first DVD purchase and still one of the best concert releases of all time.

Riot Act gave us a tour where the band sounded a bit weaker...and worse, an album of mostly unmemorable albeit tolerable tracks.

The less said about Pearl Jam the better.

Last year's was...not too terrible?

see i disagree. i am a huge fan of the Riot Act album. i don't follow their tours too closely but i would say that Riot Act was my favority since Vitalogy.

In my opinion, none of the albums from the last decade were so amazing or distinct enough to be singled out from the others as some kind of watermark, or bad enough to really be awarded black sheep status. They've been consistently treading water and making decent music, with each album a mixed bag.

Bottom line, they haven't even approached the level of Yield, let alone the three masterpieces that preceded it.
