Limited edition gatefold, die cut, luminous sleeve. 2009 release from Eddie Vedder and the boys, their ninth album overall. For Backspacer, the lasting Grunge rockers decided to do it big. They left label J Records and decided to release to album themselves, since the certainly have enough money to do that. They also hooked up with '90s Alternative Rock producer du jour Brendan O'Brien (Korn, Bruce Springsteen), the first time that the band has worked with O'Brien since 1998's Yield. The music on the record features a sound influenced by pop and New Wave.

Pearl Jam is a hard working band, who is not affraid of changing their style or trying something new. This band does not subscribe to a formula. Unlike so many bands in popular music/rock music today (hello Nickelback and Green Day, I'm looking at you guys) they do not rehash the same song's over and over again to sell more records. Pearl Jam writes music THEY believe in and record songs they love. They have some musical integrity!
This album is different from anything Pearl Jam has ever recorded. The Fixer is one of the most radio friendly songs I've heard from the band. Just Breathe is quite simply a beautiful song, and Got Some is a pretty good rocker. Speed of Sound is another gem, it's a nice song with good lyrics. This is one of the first CD's in which I like every song on the album.
This is an easy album to listen to. This is not Ten, Vs. or Vitology. If you are still expecting that sound from Pearl Jam, don't buy this album, because it sounds nothing like them. If you like good music, and don't expect the same stuff from the past, then you'll probably like it!
I am happy that it does not sound like them. Ten was released almost 20 years ago. Bands need to evolve, or they get stale. This is Pearl Jam continuing their trend of musical evolution for themselves. This is Pearl Jam grown up. This is a great CD and I highly recommend it.
now i heard some pretty bad things about this album but I have to say i disagee. it is definitely not like any other pearl jam album, it's more upbeat in the pop/alternative rock range. Eddies vocals care each song, the lyrics are interesting and meaningful. great guitars throughout with excellent percussion. the cd cover is a piece of art in itself. Well worth the 8$ i paid for it. love boxing day sales. check it out, don't listen to the criticism, make up your own mind on this one.
Great cd and good album art as well, a good buy!

My interest is in the song 'Just Breathe' which I can listen to over and over again. I very much like the lead singer's voice. The CD goes to my daughter.Published 18 months ago by snowyowl
There's a few good tunes here but it's not the Pearl Jam most fans have fallen in love with. It's more of a soft rock record, don't go in with expectations of guitar solos and... Read morePublished on Oct. 11 2010 by N. Lam
This album is awesome, another great lp from Pearl Jam. Though purchasing in through Amazon.ca, could have been a bad mistake. The packing was all wrong for this lp. Read morePublished on March 19 2010 by David J. Smith
One dare not declare this PJ's best albumn ever but it is up there. It is difficult to believe that they are still so good; may they play on forever!Published on Dec 28 2009 by Robin Torpes
To start off I have to say that listening to this CD was thought provoking; the initial thoughts being the 1960's and The Who. Read morePublished on Nov. 22 2009 by Paul S. Power
