Only 4,850 posts to go, folks! Keep it up!
you can't really *want* to talk about riot act, right?
do you all want me to post my 2003-written drunken review of riot act?
I'm holding out hope for a drunken review of "Pearl Jam"
you want to post that thing (again) so badly it's sick.
Go fry me up some meat and stfu
I actually did get quite a few laughs out of your review. After spending the last three and a half years defending this album to just about everyone I know, what else can you really do but have a sense of humor about it.
Nice to see I Am Mine and You Are show up in the setlist last night. I have yet to see/hear You Are live, so I can only imagine.....
I hope they don't abandon LBC, All or None or Thumbing.
not playing RA is the best idea ever.
Riot Act has to be one of the most criminally underrated albums of all time. It still ranks as my favorite Pearl Jam release. It has some of their best lyrics and most emotional songs. Love the production also!
Theres no reason for you to post here. I don't go to the Yield discussion and say negative things about Yield. If you want to post here, please post positive.
Agreed. What are your favorite songs on this album?
My top 3 would be Cropduster, 1/2 full and Love Boat Captain which also happens to be my all time favorite Pearl Jam song. As a whole the album works so well. Every song has it's place and delivers it's own emotions. Even Arc really adds to the overall feel of Riot Act. Along with Vitalogy I think it's the most personal set of songs they have done. Feels like that to me anyway...
Get Right is a total Rocker! It could have fit onto Avocado! I love Ed's vocal here also. They are more subdued like the rest of the album. Very inspired sounding and sad also. There is definitely a deliberate flow to Riot Act. I am surprised there weren't as many outtakes on Lost Dogs as Binaural had.
This is not Riot Act related really, but Binaural had so many cuts (in my opinion) because songs like Fatal, Sad, Sweet Lew, and Education wouldn't have fit in the album. The mood for those songs isn't Binaural if that makes sense. That also explains Down. That wouldn't have fit on Riot Act (in my opinion) because of how upbeat and happy it sounds. Not like the album at all. But Riot Act had two more songs than Binaural so it just means they wrote more "Riot Act" songs during the recording sessions. I could be wrong though.
