    I associate this day with Binaural without having to be reminded, which makes me happy. Binaural was a special record in my life, because as I am a little younger than some of y'all, I really "discovered"/ fell in love with Pearl Jam because of Yield, do Binaural was really the first record I got to anticipate and look forward to. I was a freshman in high school at the time, and feel like I almost sort of remember the excitement of the day. I also got to see PJ for the first time on the Binaural tour, and like the album, my first show opened with Breakerfall. Still a pretty solid record to listen to and enjoy from start to finish, in my opinion.
    words seem so out of place.

    Pretty cool. Imagine this as the album opener right into "Breakerfall."

    I think I was a junior in high school, but your story sounds exactly like mine lol. I think my first show Saratoga NY opened with Breakerfall too. I think after getting this album I really dove into all their other albums, which I bought in reverse order back to 10, completely by random choice too. 
    Wouldn't it be funny if the world ended in 2010, with lots of fire?

    Some strong memories here. Was living on the east coast but was staying in California mostly to clear my head from a break up. Bought Binaural out there so I always associate it with that period of my life. Still remember my first listen. Also remember standing on some cliff somewhere in Cali listening to Insignificance a dozen times when I first heard it on the NAIS single. 
    I will die of the hill of they messed up the track list on this one. They should have stuck with the original. And how was Sad left off? Top 20 song in the catalogue and would have been the best song on the album (next to grievance of course).

    Man I love this album. 2nd favourite after Yield. Freshman in University, wore the CD out within months. First live PJ show was this tour, such great memories of trips to the record store to buy the 2000 boots. The record with the most nostalgia and personal meaning for me. I really Binaural gets some special treatment in 2 years for its 25th - demos and outtakes, alternate tracklisting, collection of the best live versions.

    Pearl Jam - Live At Toronto, Canada 2016-05-10 (Binaural Full Album)

    Easily my favorite Pearl Jam album. Like a previous poster stated, this album came at a really amazing time in my youth. I absolutely loved "Yield", but remember wondering if sonically this would be where PJ would rest moving onward. I remember the day I was driving to school and Oklahoma City's main rock station 100.5 The Katt premiered "Nothing as it Seems"! I was sooo excited to hear the aural shift, the darkness of it and McCready's ripping guitar. It sent my fandom in to over drive in anticipation for the album. I've not had that experience with a PJ album since, but hold it very dear. Wonderful and happy times in a life so far gone now.

    Facts.  Agree that Sad is top 20 or 25 in their catalog.

    Being left off is really weird to me. Like the decision was based on something else besides how good the actual song is. 

    Vedder has 6 songs on the album. 
    Breaker
    insignificance
    I pledge my grievance to the flag
    Light years (also mike and stone)
    soon forget
    parting ways

    stone has 3
    thin air
    of the girl 
    Rival

    jeff has 3
    Gods dice
    nothing as it seems
    sleight of hand

    Matt 
    evacuation

    mike 
    maybe light years when it was “Puzzles and Games” before got rearranged

    Sad would make it 7 for Ed or they would have to cut one. 

    The very obvious answer to me would be to cut Soon forget and make it a B-side. It kinda has a B-side feel anyway. And although they’re both rare live songs, Sad has always worked better in the live environment. 

    My new track listing would be:

    Breakerfall
    gods dice
    Grievance
    Insignificance
    Evacuation
    Sad 
    Of the girl
    light years
    thin air
    nothing as it seems
    Rival
    sleight of hand
    Parting ways

    Record

    Vinyl 1

    Side A

    Breakerfall
    gods dice
    Grievance

    Side B 

    Insignificance
    Evacuation
    Sad

    Vinyl 2

    Side C 

    Of the girl (starts the show on the second record)
    light years
    thin air

    Side D

    nothing as it seems
    Rival
    sleight of hand
    Parting ways

    Would 7 ed songs be too many on the album instead of 6? Maybe soon forget made the record because Ed was super pissed at the time with the uber powerful and rich?  Maybe Sad was too personal, so Ed didn’t want to put it on the record?

    Who knows. 

    What I do know is, Binaural rules.

    I quite like your new track listing. Flows nicely. I do like Soon Forget though, so I’d be happy to keep it.

    When they debuted “Grievance “ on Letterman, I felt new feelings.  When the CD came out, and I listened to “of the Girl” while driving to the beach, I felt new feelings.  This was a band I had loved and dissected since hearing Ten as an angsty 15 year old, and almost two decades later, their weird magic still held.  This was probably their last great album, a classic and unmatched…

    that original track list, though…
