Bayleaf

edited August 2012 in The Porch
I recently found Stone Gossard's Bayleaf in a record store. It was relatively cheap and I knew the only place to get it would be here or Amazon, so I pulled the trigger. This album is absolutely fantastic, which shouldn't be a surprise considering Stone is such a talented dude (to say the least). I was just wondering why there isn't as much buzz about this album compared to the rest of PJ's stuff or as a good stand alone album. Thoughts?

  • Personally I love the album. I will be honest and say I am not cracked into Stone's voice. But he really got it right on this record. Must be like 10 years old now. I havent listened to it in ages so thanks for the mind bump. I couldnt even list the tracks out in my head. Gonna play it later.

    favourite song starts with the lyrics "If you have an instrument, without any rhyme.."

    I got his before PJ20 last year, and I wished Pearl Jam would cover "Pigeon." I don't think every song is great, but pretty close. After reading a bunch of reviews on it, I wasn't too excited about Stone's voice, but actually didn't find anything wrong with it. I don't have all of the side project stuff, but for what I do have I'd rank this at the top.

    Absolutely love it! I bought it last year, though I have been listening to its mp3 download for many years now. I purchased it from play.com and they sent me a re-release edition CD. :x That means, no booklet and no cover art on the CD. :thumbdown: I wish I could find the original album somewhere in Greece. I own at least one original album (CD or bought mp3) from every side project. Even Hater! You must give a listen to them too. You're going to love it. ;) Back to Bayleaf now. My favoutire songs from the album are Pigeon and Unhand Me.

    It's Every Family. Nice little song there. :thumbup:
    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    Got this when it first came out when I was just buying anything the guys did as side projects. I'm not a huge fan of this album. It has its moments but I find that I rarely listen to it.

    Does anyone have an mp3 download of this album they would be willing to share with me? It's not for sale in the shop like Moonlander is. Thanks.

    Same here. Moonlander was outstanding! Not as good as Bayleaf, but close!

    Crap, I checked Google Play and it wasn't on there, and assumed it wasn't gonna be on Amazon either so I didn't check there. Thanks for letting me know.

    bayleaf (the song) might be my favorite solo track by any of the band members. it was cool to see it show up in those brad shows a couple years ago.

    Have to check this album out yet to listen to anything off it. Stone should have named the album Sweet leaf. Ha ha!

    Bayleaf is one of my favorite solo pojects by the boys. Early Brad was amazing as well

  • He's a music genius. "Versital" talent shines through on BAYLEAF MOONLANER and Brad records

    I purchased one copy of Bayleaf many years ago (I don't remember from where), and that's definitely not the original packaging. :confused:
