Concerning the last two albums, Binaural was amazing. Riot Act isn't horrible, but very little of it leaves an impression after a few listens (really only "I Am Mine", "Green Disease" and "Arc" keep me interested).

As for Lost Dogs, yes, it was just a collection of b-sides, but a lot of great material didn't end up on it in favor of some never before heard stuff that was mostly rubbish. Definitely didn't have half the tracks I would've put on such a release (although "Undone" is a glorious 'new' track). The greatest hits comp was lame in that it didn't have enough selections from Yield and Binaural......

New song is still horrid, btw.

I'm not so sure about the new song either...he sounds like he's drinking water and singing at the same time!

Yes, but that's the Eddie Vedder style.

I love the new song

Anyway, Binaural and Riot Act are their two weakest efforts IMO but they're still awesome. Light Years , Grievance, Thin Air, Insignificance, Love Boat Captain , Can't Keep, Thumbing My Way , Save You

But nothing compares to Yield or No Code

Yes.

And based on whats been happening, I still advise you to attempt to buy Jersey today. (if you do and see a "Sold out" icon, just keep checking, the server has issues, but the "Buy" option will pop up eventually.)
The fan club seats seem to definitely be limited (exception seems to be Toronto) there is much speculation that they are now limited by Ticketmaster/Clear Channel to about 10% of capacity, so even a high member number could get you pretty good seats, say like 108, 109 or so. Who knows?

I finally took the time to hear World Wide Suicide, and I like it. It sounds like it could've been from Vitalogy. Great riff.

No, he normally sounds like sheep, i.e. "the shaaades go dooown." This sounds like he was literally drinking water!

Ahhh...Vitalogy, No Code and Yield, what brilliant albums, three in a row. My heart aches a little when I listen to these three albums because damnit, this band can be so %&&^ good and I just don't understand why we're no longer connecting.

I listened to "WWS" a little more over the weekend and it's still not doing anything for me but it is slightly better than what I expected to hear initially.

I heard it last night for the first time and agree the little riff sounds like it's pulled directly from the Vitalogy era.

Early on, the problem I'm having with the song is that it doesn't sound like it has any mustard driving it. Where's the passion?

Vitalogy is full of energy that's needed to turn riffs into Rock. WWS lacks badly in this area. Going back to a Vitalogy era sound without the requisite abandon driving the songs is a very bad idea.

Wild energy and abandon have always been two of PJ's biggest strengths. I'm afraid PJ doesn't have the creative chops to keep things interesting if those things aren't there, like some bands can. For example, the sound of WWS is pure Rock vanilla without the mustard to give it a wacky and uncomfortabe taste.

Mighty descriptive...suddenly, I'm hungry

I like this song much more than I did a few days ago. Still, I hope the rest of the album is a little more screwy. Even if WWS is a bit of crafted single, I'm really appreciating the lyrics--the political bent. I don't think anyone can deny the fact that PJ have more to say about the world these days, rather than just themselves.

But, yes, more mustard. Mustard + meaning =

Maybe that's why they're not connecting with me--WWS doesn't have any mustard so it feels artificial. They're giving me artificial vanilla rock and no mustard.

Last time I had that I couldn't leave the house for two days and lost 10 lbs., if you know what I mean.

So, by all means make sure the mustard is always in the vanilla my Jam ass friends.

World Wide Suicide single is out on iTunes.
The really good news is that it includes another album track - Unemployable.
It sounds really great. Totally different than anything PJ has done in the past. Sounds more like The Police or Bruce Springsteen.

Anyone have a link? I'll be buying the album in may (just in case Eddie reads this).
