    Sleight of Hand is one of their top 3 songs of the 21st century IMO (along with Man of the hour and Sirens)

    yes Sirens
    waits for the backlash to begin............

    Not my favorite album. But a perfect album. The atmosphere of it is off the charts.

    Binaural was the first album I saw the release of in "real time", having become a Pearl Jam fan in the summer of 1998. Like blackngold, I was in my senior year of high school. Went to the record store during my spare and ended up being the first person to purchase it at the location.
    Similar story. Coincidentally met my future wife on 16th May 1998 (two years to the day prior to when Binaural would be released). Ended up getting into PJ in the summer of 1998 through her. Binaural then ended up being the first PJ album that I bought on release day and of course I've got all the albums on release day ever since then!!

    And a couple of weeks after Binaural was released I saw them live for the first time, and so the obsession started and the rest is history. This album will always hold a special place in my heart!

    Happy Birthday Binaural!

    The fact that the anniversary of possibly my least favorite album by this band made me rush to listen to it, shows why they are my favorite band the most. It's my least favorite PJ album and I still LOVE it. The quality of music these guys make from top to bottom is just impeccable.

    Excited to hear the Toronto 2016 playing of it in a sec!

    I've always enjoyed this version - the overdrive at the end of this take I don't think has ever been duplicated live elsewhere. 

    Grateful for Binaural in Toronto.

    Perfection. They killed Grievance and Hail, Hail on Letterman. Best performances of both songs. I love Mike on this one and Stone on Hail, Hail.
