Product Description

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 Not another Ten? Who Cares? May 18 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Personally, the album "Ten" is the reason I have been reluctant to embrace this band over the many years. The fact people are still proclaiming it to be Pearl Jam's greatest proves how overrated it has become, or always was. People wishing to be involved in the grunge sound during that period latched on to that album despite the presence of its fake veneer designed to attract a mass audience. Other bands were around at the time to truly provide an authentic rock voice, most notably Nirvana. Pearl Jam's Ten was not authentic. Their new album, on the other hand, is one of the most authentic rock albums to be released in recent memory. The mixture of influences that can be heard throughout the album testify to the maturity the band has acquired over the years. It was a process of evolution that was necessary to enable them to release an album of true significance. After this album and this album alone, Pearl Jam must now be embraced as true Rock n'Roll giants. This one folks is one for the decades: a true masterpiece. Enjoy!

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 is unstoppable July 24 2009
Format:Audio CD
The album is great from start to finish. Much stronger than Riot Act and as good as any of their earlier works. A lot of dynamics created using a very basic set up musically. The guitarists of Pearl Jam have the ability to rise above the ordinary and create interesting, captivaing parts that blow me away, and they are in top form here. Ament on bass keeps it real at all times and Cameron sounds at home. Support a great band and do yourself a favour at the same time!

3.0 out of 5 stars They just missed Sept. 3 2006
By J
Format:Audio CD
A solid effort but it seems like it could have been so much better. Some of the 'catchy' tunes are just a bit too raw (MARKER IN THE SAND and BIG WAVE could have been so much better). It's too bad they didn't use some 'left overs' from LOST DOGS on here. If you added DOWN, SAD and OTHER SIDE to this CD it would have been amazing. Anyway, not bad but not great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam can still rock . . . May 9 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!
