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

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.

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.

Listening to it now. I think it's the last album I bought on the day of release, until Lightning Bolt in 2013. It took a few days, maybe a week, to grow on me- then I thought it was the best stuff they'd done up until that point. But then that wore off and now it sits at #6 behind the first five. It's a unique record. Light Years and NAIS are standout tracks, and insignificance all the way thru to Parting Ways might be the best 7 song stretch on any of their albums. 16 years old. Binaural is a teenager. Old enough to drive. Fuck me, I feel old.
God's Dice. Very underrated song from the PJ catalog.
Here’s all my ticket stubs from Binaural tour. Happy Binaural day, y’all.
