4.0 out of 5 stars Best Band of the last 15 years May 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
First I'll start off by saying Pearl Jam is my favorite band. They have evolved into a great band and are the sole surivors of the "Grunge" era. They have grown up with us and gotten better throughout the years.
That being said, I really like this single. It is a great song about a father and son relationship which is strangely ironic considering the relationship Eddie has had with the "father figures" in his life.
Strange as it may sound I like the demo version of the song better than the full band arrangement. I am partial to the simpler sound because of its purity and I feel Ed really shines on the demo.
All in all, a great offering from the Led Zeppelin of our era. Doing it their own way with no compromises. Pearl Jam, the fans band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Songwriting. Great Single. April 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I got this single from a friend in the US who bought it from this site. I love this song. It's a great mellow song.
Some people have complained about Pearl Jam being too soft now. I think that a band like this one doesn't need to be writing another "Jeremy", "Porch" or "Do The Evolution". I think that this band has actually gotten better with the years. If you are a fan and you think like I do, you're just gonna love this single. Chances are you've already heard it at least.
Another reviewer pointed out that Eddie Vedder used the phrase "the rusted signs" on "Man Of The Hour", that he had already used on "Thumbing my way". He's right, however I think it actually makes the song even better. Listen to both songs, first "Thumbing...", so you see what he means about the "rusted signs". Then listen to "Man Of The Hour" knowing that.
You'll find "Thumbing My Way" in Riot Act, for those who might not know.
I think repeating lyrics in different songs is not too big a deal, as long as it adds meaning to both songs. You'll find the line "there ain't gonna be no middle anymore" in both Pearl Jam songs' "Porch" and "Half Full". And they're both great songs.
Anyway, I digress. Buy this single. Both versions of "Man Of The Hour" are great, the demo version being a stripped down version of just Eddie Vedder and a guitar. In fact, since you can get the soundtrack version from the "Big Fish" soundtrack, get it for the demo version.

This is a beautiful Pearl Jam song and it's definitely for any fan. 'Man of the Hour' is from Tim Burton's "Big Fish", amazing single.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam won't stand still Feb. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
After creating their own mold thirteen years ago, the band has succeded to break it as the members get older and more mature. To compare the later releases with the "grunge" songs from the early nineties is not relevant. This latest effort proves once again that Pearl Jam will keep making the music they want to play instead of trying to please the fans they earned with a different style of music a decade ago. Personally, I find this song to be very moving and I think the melody is beautiful. Of course, knowing it was written for the Tim Burton movie, it's easier to identify the theme of the song, but to me the melancholic feel of the song is just monumental. I can't wait for their next full-length album!
By the way, what lyrics are the same on "Man of The Hour" and "Thumbing My Way"? The words 'a' and 'the' are there in both songs, but not much else...
