Product Description

Product Description

With over 65 million albums sold, Pearl Jam returns with their first studio record in four years. 'World Wide Suicide' is the lead single and video (directed by Danny Clinch) from the album impacting prior to release date. The band will be touring the globe through July 2006 in support of the new album.


If its debut album 15 years ago made Pearl Jam apprehensive with success, the Seattle quintet better buckle in for a return to eminence. On its eighth studio release--and first since 2002--the band socks away the adventurous experimentation that dogged some of its most recent records to investigate a post-September 11, war-ravaged world overflowing with urgency and significance. "It's the same everyday in a hell manmade/What can be saved, and who will be left to hold her?" lead singer Eddie Vedder wonders in "World Wide Suicide," one of several contemptuous rants on the Bush administration. Yet the album's spark is more than political. Songs like "Life Wasted," "Comatose" and "Big Wave" embrace the garage-rock past, as guitarists Mike McCready and Stone Gossard play off each other with the primal lucidity of a decade ago and drummer Matt Cameron, one of rock's best, adds raw backing vocals to Vedder's polished craft. But Pearl Jam also turns up some of its most harmonious works since "Daughter," including "Marker in the Sand," with its radio-ready chorus, the tuneful "Parachutes" paced by Gossard's divine strumming, and the burning narrative and Urge Overkill punch of "Umemployable." Finally Vedder pleads for a lover's return in "Come Back," a keyboard-soaked love song complete with a chilling Gossard solo. It's got a soulfulness that begs for Sam Cooke to sing it and an originality that shows that a vibrant and cocksure Pearl Jam is back in town--and ready to retake the world. --Scott Holter

5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam is back!!! May 2 2006
Format:Audio CD
At first I was really worried that this CD might be a little mellow or..... different. To my surprise, this album is great! It is plain and simple, good old Rock and Roll. The songs are up beat and energetic. "World Wide Suicide" is a great single to start off with. The song represents the energy of the album.
Another song to listen to is "Unenployable"..... this song is amazing... it's always playing in my car.
If you're a fan of the old style Pearl Jam or just a fan of Rock, pick up this album! You will love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam can still rock . . . May 8 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ok, so as you've probably figured, this album is no Ten. Let's not mistake that. But I give it 5 stars for their creativity, and I don't think I've ever heard Gossard and McCready play better. As for our beloved Vedder (who still makes my heart melt and always will) you can tell the best of Eddie's voice is behind him, but we will always remember it. My fave songs on the album are the catchy beats of World Wide Suicide, I love the riffs in Severed Hand but my absolute number 1 song is Inside Job. That 2 minute intro, WOW. Blew my f***in' mind, those guitar riffs (or violins?) about a minute in just got to me and the piano afterwards is a beautiful touch. I never thought I'd associate the words Pearl Jam and beautiful together, but that song did it, it's truly amazing. I love it, I love the lyrics, the way Eddie sings it, that creativity. Awesome, AWESOME song. All in all, there is a good balance of well written ballads and head bangin rock songs.
Of course there will never be another Ten, or another Vs. Or even another Vitalogy. But as a die hard PJ fan I was impressed, glad I had something new of theirs to cruise to, and mostly glad the boys are back in town! Keep on rockin in a free world, Pearl Jam!

Format:Audio CD
No I wouldnt say Pearl Jam are back , they were never gone but they are writing hard
rocking catchey music again. It's not "Ten" its not "vs" and its not even "Vitalogy".
With this album they have a chance of becoming more commercially succsesfull again
and they have a chance to gain alot of fans back!
To the album.
1- "Life Wasted" - A great rocker and starts the album off great! My favorite on the album and one of Pearl Jam's best! 10/10
2- "World Wide Suicide" - Im not crazy about the first single from the new album but hey it's good! 8/10
3 - "Comatose" - A sequel to "Spin The Black Circle". Not bad. 7.5/10
4 - "Served Hand" - Good riff going through the song , it works. 8/10
5 - "Marker In The Sand" - My second favorite on the album , great chorus! 9.5/10
6 - "Parachutes" - Cool Beatles pop song! Nice melody! 8.5/10
7 - "Unemployable" - Neat Rock/Pop song. Catchey! 9/10
8 - "Big Wave" - "vs" sounding rocker! Raw and cool but defintly not one of the best
songs on the album. 7/10
9 - "Gone" - Nice accoustic song. Cathcey, Not one of my fav's. 7.5/10
10 - "Wasted Reprise" - I like it , kind of a mellow sad ending to "Life Wasted"! 9/10
11 - "Army Reverse" - One of weaker track's but still affective. 6.5/10
12 - "Come Back" - My third favorite song on the album! Great ballad! 9/10
13 - "Inside Job" - Last song closes the album off perfectly! Starts slow rocks at the
end! 8.5/10
So there you have it! I would say its there fourth best album and there best sinse

5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam Back To Great Form May 3 2006
Format:Audio CD
After a weighty, politically-charged release in 'Riot Act', Pearl Jam have moved backward in the most positive sense possible. This newest release, 'Pearl Jam', harkens back to the days of 'Vitalogy', with Eddie's voice sounding more like it did on "Spin the Black Circle," than it did on anything from 'Binaural'. The first single off 'Pearl Jam', "World Wide Suicide," is as catchy a tune as PJ has released in the last ten years. Much of the album follows in the single's footsteps, with catchy riffs and snappy hooks.
Vedder and co. have collaborated effectively on more than one track, including "Unemployable," written by Eddie, Matt, and Mike. "Wasted Reprise," a double-take of the album's first track, "Life Wasted," is only 50 seconds long, and yet manages to be one of the highlights of the album. It's slow intensity is also present in "Come Back," and "Parachutes", which both show that Vedder has not lost the ballad touch that made "...Small Town", and "Black" so classic.
Pearl Jam has certainly shown that they are back to true rock form, without having lost their political intensity. This time, however, it is so nicely balanced that one only notices the politics if one cares to look that deep. Otherwise, it is still on the surface, a great rock album, and possibly one of Pearl Jam's best.

Another great record from the Seattle lads. «Pearl Jam» opens with some great rockin' songs and bring us within different universes until the end. Always the good PJ's sound and the lyrics are quite interesting about today's world context. However, just a little critic: it could have been a bit longer. With 4 years between «Riot Act» and this last one, I think Pearl Jam could have put a couple more songs on «Pearl Jam». But, at the end, it's not that important, we'll just take some time to enjoy this one and wait for their next opus. BRAVO PJ!
