    I love Pearl Jam but after 30 years I don’t think they can release anything that I will be listening to for more than a couple weeks before putting away.

    I listen to a song or two from it here and there
    After the first few listens I started cutting it to the first four songs.  I did mix in the full album probably 10-15 more times.  Now I am down to once in a while playing songs from the first three, maybe four cuts.
    Hoping that seeing it live will bring some of the other songs around for me....

    I’ve listened to it more, front to back, than any other PJ album of this century. Not because I like it so much more (although I do really like it), but because it hasn’t been replaced by any shows. In a non-COVID universe i shelved it some time last summer in favor of boots from MSG and Baltimore.

    Like an erection, it started out with a good hard listen quite a lot, but as time goes on the sensation of new tunes fades and becomes a more flacid once a week or two listen.  But like any album I love it when it comes on unexpectedly, but usually it is over too quick to appreciate and I am left sad and depressed it didn't last longer

    Weekly. But with two little ones, weekly is considered top rotation. More often I’ll throw on a song or two. Lately it’s been Whoever Said, DOTC, Comes and Goes, and Seven o Clock.

    It's been a while for me & not that I don't like it, I love it but with Covid ruining my European tour that coincided with my 50th It's on the back burner as I play more guitar than listen to music these days

    I played it so much on release, I maybe over did it a bit, taken a few months off from the cycle, but will defo return to it in time. Still like a lot of the record

    Probably been the summer time since I listened to it in full. Since then, probably just the same few songs and that's been months ago.

    Comes then goes is the only song that doesn’t get skipped on artist shuffle 
    Yeh I've seen Pearl Jam, too. But I can't remember the dates.

    I bought it on CD when it came out, but only got the vinyl a little while ago. The vinyl came with a digital download, so I find that listen to it more on my phone when I am out running. When listening to the CD at work, I skip around a little, depending on the mood.

    A ton more than i did for Lightning Bolt or Avocado 9 months after their release. 

    Ill play at least one song weekly.   Good album.  For them to make my 5th or 6th fav PJ album 30 yrs in is very surprising.

    So much amazing new music out there, PJ isn’t even in my weekly rotation. They are my favorite band though, haha!

    First four songs occasionally. The rest are pretty much throw away. I am treating this album just as I did Lightning Bolt. I can't remember the last time I actually listened to LB in full.

    Same here. Working from home I've had to put more albums into rotation so every day wasn't the same, but it still holds up well. Also occasionally listen to it from start to finish as a running soundtrack, which is nice in itself to enjoy PJ while exercising.

    A few times during the initial release, then it's been shelved since. I have to many other records that I like better.

    I would listen to the full album once or twice a week for the first 3 or 4 months. Now I put it on about once or twice a month and listen to about 4 or 5 tracks. I can't expect another VS or Yield from them at this point. Still much better than LB, so this was about as good as I could have hoped or expected.

    I always fall more in love with their songs live than album versions , if the 2020 tour had happened and I had some bootlegs I would most likely listen to the songs a lot more.


  • PJNBPJNB New BrunswickPosts: 8,578
    Enjoy every song on the album and still do not feel like there is a skippable song on it for me. I do not listen to it front to back anymore very often but when I get back to working out I will be.

    I think I'll do that today. It's been awhile. I might even be able to tolerate the Future Days.

    I come back to it every few weeks. But there is a lot of new music out there to get through too. Only so much time.

    how often? right now, determines nothing imo  :)
    i played the heck out of it when it landed 30 days late
    and before the tour it will be played a f'n whack more
    many many great songs on the cd. glass way half full on this one
    and i think someone said the new songs won't have any impact by the the time the tour re-starts... lol ...wtf?
    hell no...the songs will be more massive .. having LIVED through this f'n mess and knowing/learning more 
    everything has changed

    Funny thing is as much I really don't like LB, I do think Future Days is one of the better songs on that record.

    Many different songs get different reactions.
    I like the first half of LB.  I don't listen past Swallowed Whole 
    Those last four songs are not ones I seek to listen to.

    Daily. 
    10 months from release date Gigaton is my favorite LP since Yield. 
    So looking forward to hearing these songs live, especially Retrograde.  The last 90-120 seconds are my favorite of the record.  
    Comes Then Goes is brilliant.  River Cross I love.  
    Seven o Clock is a masterpiece and my appreciation of it grew after hearing Josh explain how it was put together like lego parts from a two hour jam. 
    Quick Escape is another I’m really looking forward to live.  The guitar solo, base, and drums kick ass.

    Weekly for me. It would be more but on a friend's recommendation I jumped down a Steven Wilson and Gavin Harrison era Porcupine Tree rabbit hole and got rather addicted to having those albums on repeat listen. Fortunately the repeat listenability of Gigaton is much higher than the last few albums and I do look forward to putting it on as opposed to giving LB a spin for the sake of it.
