Okay I take back all the awful things I said about Yield. Right now I'm digging even the weird experimental shit.

I have always loved his vocal delivery on "Push Me, Pull Me". It's so cheesy-used-car-salesman/scary-hitchiker-on-a -deserted-road.

It's f*#@n' brilliant!

And "Given To Fly", well . . . . . . . . that's just pure orgasmic ecstacy!!!

I can easily list it with the five that proceeded the album....it's not until Riot Act where the band started careening down the hill. In fact, Binaural's pretty damn good, and still one of my favorite albums of this decade, despite all of the greatness that has come out of it.

I thought no one else liked this album! All the reviews I checked before listening said it was uneven and terrible...

The only two songs I really dislike are Gods' Dice and Evacuation, and it kind of makes the opening of the album a drag. But Breakerfall, NAIS, the last half....

It's a great album, calm like No Code and dark like Vitalogy.

Oh yeah.

They produced it with Tchad Blake, who used a special micing technique he developed known as "Binaural"...hence the amazingly original album title!

It really does create a sense of ambiance, especially on Sleight Of Hand, Of The Girl, and Nothing As It Seems. Grievance is my favourite song from the album. The "run to the sea" part gets me every time. I think this performance on Letterman underscores just how great they are in a live setting:

I'm convinced they have the best rhythm section in rock right now. Anyone who's unsure about this band has to see them live to understand.

After that, their greatness just becomes a scientific acoustic fact

Yield is just

Binaural is

It's funny how no one is giving Evacuation any love, yet last time I saw PJ (July '06) they played it...someone likes it.

They didn't play Evacuation since 2003. I think you mixed it up with another song.

I knew that Tchad Blake produced it, and I've always thought it sounded extremely well-produced and crisp, BUT it wasn't until I put it in my kick-ass car cd player today on my way to a depo in south o.c., that I COMPLETELY noticed the production.

It is so cool! From the very beginning notes of "Breakerfall", I swear it sounded like the music and vocals were coming at me from ALL different directions! So bizarre, but supremely awesome!

Binaural is a great album, and Light Years is beautiful! The best song from it.
But we need more love on Evacuation. I think it's a good song, not their best, but it's good!

As great as Binaural is, I'd have to say that it probably features the worst album cover art of PJ's career. This picture is actually a little clearer than the cardboard foldout version I have.



The eye bothers me

Actually I like the inside picture of the case a lot more than the cover! That bright yellow expanse of outer space slowly turning orange towards the edges of the case...
