Riot Act

I was curious about opinions on the new Pearl Jam-Riot Act.

I think it's much better than it's predecessor Binaural, and it might take a few more listens to get used to the new songs. Early favorites:

Cant Keep
Love Boat Captain
Thumbing My Way
You Are
Green Disease

and of course, I am Mine which has been out for a good while.

I can't believe I resisted the urge to download this album, it sure does add to that 'first listen' enjoyment.

Also, how cool is Arc? Eddie is a badass.

I downloaded about half the tunes....I'm not sure if I'm going to buy it. I wasn't crazy about most of what I heard, except "thumbing my way" which I think is one of the best songs they ever wrote.
hmmm....jury is still out on this one....I did like binaural though.

I like it too, definitely much better than Binaural. Will take a few listens to get to know the songs better.

Eddie could be well advised to stay away from the "talking" songs. They're a bit silly.

sounds great so far, but it's gonna take many more listens, which i'm happy about, usually if i love an album after 1 or 2 listens i hate it after 5 or 6

I guess I should not be surprised that only one person has voted in this poll since I have yet to vote either. I just bought the album yesterday and have not made up my mind yet on how to rate it. Still though, it is kind of surprising that only one person has voted. I wonder if we are the only one's who have the new album around here?

Just bought it the other day. I have yet to finish listening to the whole album, but so far, it's pretty good.

Ah, but of course I got it!! I have been listening to it a lot since Tuesday and I'm starting to love it!! At first, like any PJ album, it takes a while to get used to it or get into it.. but after listening to it all the way through who knows how many times know.. I really like it!!!

I love, "Love Boat Captain," "You Are," "Save You," and "Thumbing My Way." Those are my fav right now!!

forgot to add, I also really love Eddie's vocals on "ARC" I wish it was longer!

again, another cd id buy if i didnt have other priorities. i love i am mine, but i have heard nothing else from the album. reviews have been poor though, from what ive read, but theyre the same ones who are endorsing linkon park to the mtv generation, allowing such an awful band to win best band in the world or whatever that was in portugal spain the europe the world gooday.

i hate you all.

it's not poppy and catchy enough, not enough sweet choruses, eddie's just not sexy and sweet enough, matt cameron is an ugly drummer, the other alternative is to scream about how bad your childhoood was even though youre in your late 20s or 30s

funndy dat

Pearl Jam's Riot Act compared to Achtung Baby... kinda.

From www.rollingstone.com

Despite some clever sonic choices -- Stone Gossard's guitar imitates a malfunctioning modem on "Wanted to Get Right," and Achtung Baby delay effects are sprinkled throughout -- the band has eschewed the experimental tweaks producer Tchad Blake brought to 2000's Binaural. The familiarity of this straightforward tumble sounds tired -- the musicians struggle to put their backs and hearts into the Mudhoney-ish rocker "Save You." But like Neil Young at his most deliberately despondent, Pearl Jam sound purposefully tired. Songs such as "Can't Keep" fall subtly into their choruses rather than explode into anthems because Vedder and his mates are too honest to indulge in the showboating of today's power balladeers. Anyone can fake a heroic stand in the studio. It's more challenging to quietly voice your need to take a step back.
