My point was that from that era of great music and those great bands, Pearl Jam are still together making great music. I love U2 and they will always be my favorite band, but Pearl Jam treats their fans way better. They release more new material. Their tickets prices are cheaper. Membership to their "club" is cheaper. They release great music, but they aren't everywhere promoting it. If someone gives enough of a shit about Pearl Jam, they'll find out about it. When Pearl Jam is on stage, they're five guys out there having fun. Yes, Eddie Vedder likes to talk politics on stage sometimes, but why not? That's what the stage is for. I also like when people say they haven't been a fan or used to like PJ when Ten or Vs. came out, but after that they weren't interested. That makes me very happy because when you're a fan of PJ, you're not a fairweather fan. My favorite album from PJ is No Code and that album barely went gold when it came out, but for me, it is my favorite. What makes Pearl Jam so good is that they don't give a fuck about making money. They just focus on the music. To PJ, their fans are like family. They don't treat their fans like a commodity.

My apologies. I wasnt aware that expressing your love for U2 was considered annoying or obnoxious in any way. Sorry.

Great post! No Code is one of my favorites too! sometimes my #1 fav!

Btw, people that say they're not interested in anything but Ten & Vs., maybe they haven't given the other albums a chance.. maybe they have! We cannot generalize.

Chris Martin, we're not talking about U2 in this thread. We're talking about Pearl Jam.
I did state that I love U2 and that they will always be my favorite. I guess you missed that.

Okay, can all you Pearl Jam fans help me out here?...

I have all of their albums but don't have State Of Love And Trust, I Got ID, Breath and Man Of The Hour. I don't think they're on Lost Dogs either which I'm thinking of getting at some point. Without getting the Greatest Hits or illegally downloading them, how can I get those afore mentioned songs?

SOLAT and Breath are on the Singles motion picture soundtrack (great disc, also has Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Mother LoveBone and Hendrix amongst others)

I Got Id was on the 2 song EP "Merkin Ball" which accompanied Neil Young's Mirror Ball which PJ was the backing band for.

Man of the Hour was a single sold by the band thru its website, can still be bought on the website...

Shit! I just realized I don't have Last Kiss or Yellow Ledbetter either. Maybe it would be easier and cheaper to just get the Hits collection. It's only $11.47 on amazon.

But anyway, now I'm interested in the Singles soundtrack.

I highly recommend the greatest hits cd. Godd stuff. Lost Dogs is also a cool cd too.

1.They're talented but I'm not a huge fan.

2.They never topped their debut 'Ten'. That's the one PJ record I actually really like.

3.Veddar has got to be one of the most, if not the most, imitated rock vocalists of the last 20 years. Scott Stapp of Creed fame? The Fuel guy? Chris Daughtery? The Nickelback guy? The 'Stained' guy? The 'Live' guy? It goes on and on and on. And none of them is anywhere near as good as Veddar. The one that comes closest, and it pains me to say this because he appears to be such a douche, is Scott Stapp.

I love Ten too and have a nostalgic attachment to it. But have you given any of the other albums a try?

Yes. There a few good songs on Vitalogy, a few good songs on Vs, a few good songs on Binaural, a few good songs here and there, but none of their records has ever really impressed me outside of 'Ten'. I love 'Betterman' and 'Nothing As It Seems' though.
