If we're talking Pearl Jam fandom, I think it is considered by many to be a masterpiece, yeah. It's my favorite for sure.

I feel the very same way, I've always struggled to get into Vitalogy too,
The album is very lackluster to me, with the exception of......

Betterman
Nothing Man
Corduroy
Immortality
Spin The Black Circle.

Its hard to put an album on and listen to it the whole way through when there's tunes like Bugs and Heyfoxymophandlemomma,

I think PJ really lost something after VS, I think I heard before that the death of Kurt had such a big effect on them that they wanted to get out of the limelight and also change the style of the music.

Vitalogy was PJ's self indulgent record...

I like Nothingman and Better Man, but see I think Spin the Black Circle is pretty shit. Just a thrash track.

On your last point, I've only got Ten>Vitalogy and Backspacer, but even if the rest isn't much chop, there's soooo much good on Ten and Vs i won't mind.

Yeah its my least favorite of the above, Its an okay track, but underachieving for Pearl Jam,

I think every Pearl Jam album has a few great tracks, except for Ten, VS, and Yield, there great the whole way through!!! you should check out Yield, great album!!!!

No Code and Yield are both among their best, imo.

Yield is probably my favorite PJ record - "Given To Fly" has been my favorite PJ song in recent months.

No Code isn't talk about as much as it should be. It's a very different vibe from anything else they've ever done. "In My Tree", "Off He Goes", "Who You Are", and "I'm Open" are some of the mellowest, most gorgeous songs in their catalog.

Like all great bands PJ has their different sides, and this is one of their best. Given to Fly, even though it's derivative is still one of my faves, and the others you list are PJ at their best when it comes to the "mellow" side of PJ.

I like all sides of PJ, except maybe their "punk" side, that aspect of PJ bores me.

I think you should check YIELD out, its one of there best and from the above comments I'm not alone on that, great, great album!!!

Althought I'd say its more like Backspacer than VS or Ten, It has a more mellow, mature sound to it, some great rockers on it too tho,

I've got tickets to PJ in Belfast too!!!! , But just remember its on June 23rd , that would be a terrible way to miss a gig!

Anybody know anything about further US dates? I'd think they'd be touring this year, since their album just came out 6-7 months ago. Or is the Soundgarden reunion tour going to be keeping Matt Cameron too busy? Pearl Jam is one band I have never seen, but really want to. I don't think the album "Pearl Jam" is nearly as bad as everybody makes it out to be. I actually really like it. "Marker in the sand" is probably my favorite PJ song.

avacado was very much liked on these boards and held fairly high by the critics, and that's two albums ago, sooooo...


boom said on a radio that they'd be touring in march, they're signed up for a festival in new orleans already, and rumors that their name showed up on a billboard of some sorts outside of an arena in tampa for a show in early april.

i think they're trying to balance the dates between the soundgarden disaster of a reunion tour and the pearl jam tour, so that's the delay.

I think I still like that one more than Backspacer.
