The keeper tracks include: ALL NIGHT, DOWN, SAD, U, UNDONE, LEAVIN' HERE, YELLOW LEDBETTER, FOOTSTEPS, OTHER SIDE and I guess you could include LAST KISS (can you say...saturation?). Many of these tracks could be great singles but for some reason they didn't make the final cut on other CDs. Too bad because these tracks would have saved BINAURAL and would have improved RIOT ACT.
There are a few other solid tracks but then there are the lesser tracks. I could do without SWEET LEW, DIRTY FRANK and GREMMIE OUT OF CONTROL, to name a few.
This would have been an amazing CD if it was a single CD. Having said that, the two CD package is still pretty good. PJ are one of my favourite bands but their later CDs tend to be a bit 'tired' and not overly original. Maybe the success of LOST DOGS will encourage the band to add some more variety to future releases. This double CD is the best thing PEARL JAM has put out in a long, long time. We've heard many of these songs before but now we have them on CD!
Disc two has the ballads on it. Beginning with a slow-burner "Fatal", this disc features better songs than disc one in my opinion. These are classics that shouldn't be overlooked by all PJ lovers, "Hard To Imagine" is the song that makes this collection essential. "Footsteps", "Let Me Sleep", and "Dead Man" are all amazing ballads that would understandibly not fit on the albums
All of these songs were left off the albums most likely because they didn't fit in with the mood, and it's true, never have Pearl Jam sounded so upbeat, and funny even! on songs here, and also, never have they been so emotional as they are on the ballads here. If I could pick an album to truly define Pearl Jam, Lost Dogs would be the one that shows what the band is all about.
The first disc is a little louder and more up-tempo. Best songs are All Night, Alone, Education, You, Leavin' Here, Gremmie Out of Control and Yellow Ledbetter. Some of these I heard before as B-sides to singles, others I didn't know about. The second disc is the better of the two and has songs that are a little slower and laid back. Best ones are Fatal, Other Side, Hard to Imagine, Footsteps, Drifting and Last Kiss.
There are some filler songs on the discs and you can hear why some songs didn't make it. Still, Lost Dogs helped me realize why I liked Pearl Jam so much in the first place and gives the listener a good snapshot of band's work.
So when I heard news of LOST DOGS, I was really excited. There were a full ELEVEN unreleased songs included on this. Looking at the tracking list, though, I found it hard to believe what had been left on and what had been included. Where was "I Got Id?" The two Singles soundtrack songs? "Leatherman?" "Crazy Mary?" "Angel?" "Sonic Reducer?" "Long Road?" There are a few songs that were included ("Gremmie," "Leaving Here," "U," "Black, Red, and Yellow,") that I would have left off to make room for some of the better songs. Listening to the record now, though, I understand why those 'slight' moments are on here. Still, it would have been nice to round out LOST DOGS with more material, with each disc only holding a little over fifty minutes of music.
Pearl Jam's albums were always very tightly controlled.Read more ›
