B I N A U R A L

What a great album! The more I listen to it, the more I'm convinced it's among Pearl Jam's best, and what is probably their most underrated album. I think it's up there with Ten, No Code and the latest self titled one. Riot Act is just not as good and the others including Yield, Vs. & Vitalogy all have brilliant songs mixed in with some rubbish IMO. Pretty much every song on Binaural, except for maybe Evacuation, is either full of rocking goodness (Breakerfall, God's Dice, Insignificance, Grievance), beautifully acoustic (Of The Girl, Thin Air, Soon Forget) or just melancholy and gorgeous (Light Years , Nothing As It Seems, Parting Ways)! Can't forget the atmospheric gem, Sleight Of Hand.

Appreciate.

I was just listening to it last night.
Light Years is stellar. No pun intended.

It might be the band's second best album. Very underrated.

I think it is the toughest of PJs albums to get into and enjoy. But then out of nowhere....it just hits you.



An absolute must hear with headphones.

A beautiful grower. Sleight of Hand and Parting Ways are gorgeous. Breakerfall and Grievance are excellent rockers. Of the Girl and Rival sound like nothing PJ ever did before or after.

Every song (except Evacuation ) is great. Majority sounds better live as well.

I told you Zoot, Binaural is amazing!! It's certainly their most underrated album. It's different from almost everything they done before and it has a special prodution and feeling. Some PJ fans don't like, I totally love it

Sleight of Hand
Nothing as it seems
Soon Forget
Grievance
Insignificance

Well... while Brain Of J, Faithful, No Way, Given To Fly, Wishlist, MFC, Low Light, In Hiding and to a lesser extent, All Those Yesterdays and Pilate are all fucking brilliant I find it hard to listen to stuff like Push Me Pull Me, Untitled (Red Dot) and Do The Evolution.

Compared to that, Binaural only has one song I don't like.. Evacuation!

STOP!!

STOP EVERYTHING!!

You don't like Do the Evolution?? THE riff? The lyrics?? That fucking rock feeling that makes you wanna jump and scream like an idiot??



Along with Alive, DTE is the only song I wanna hear EVERY SINGLE TIME I get to see Pearl Jam.


Yield is just brilliant. MFC » LOW LIGHT » IN HIDING

Sounds like what World Wide Suicide is to me is Do The Evolution to you. DTE is kind of an overkill on the screaming whereas WWS just fucking rocks!

And yeah of course MFC, Low Light and In Hiding are not just the best songs on Yield, they're some of the best of their whole career.

Yeah, I see your point. WWS is amazing too... I'm not too keen on the chorus, but the verses and the bridge are fantastic. Great melody and great lyrics
