    Glorified G, just a terrible song regardless of how you feel about guns.

    Cant deny me is also a dud. 

    Honestly not too fond of much after binaural. There are some standout songs I like, but as far as entire albums go they lost me at riot act.

    Eesh.

    I really really like this song. Have never not liked it.

    Parting Ways has been played 7 times in the last 13 years. That is less than 3% of the shows. SBM is played at 20% of the shows in the last 5 years. That is why I hate SBM :lol: 


    Parting ways is amazing live and need to be played every other show. 
    Closing song for the next tour!

    Haven't liked an album or much at all in nearly 2 decades, but still pay to be a member of the fan club?  Interesting.  Welcome to the boards!

    Thanks!

    Still love them and their music, heck I drove 500 miles one way to see them in Seattle on day one this year, but after binaural doesn't really grab me or feel as inspired as their earlier stuff. Don't get me wrong there's still some great tunes in the later albums, but I think the first 5 or 6 records are much stronger as a whole.

    The first 2 albums are perfect. Ten & Vs.
     Not one song which irritates me or bugs me or still not getting tired of in more then 20 years. Heck, the only get stronger. 
    On Vitalogy they put on “Hey Foxy shit”. I was stunned. Wtf was that. But ok. It’s my favorite band but this song is nothing to me. In fact, top 3 of worst recordings ever from PJ. 
    Then No Code, wtf was “I’m open”. Damn. Again a fuck up and the rest is so brilliant. Damn. 
    Yield, what a record. Love it but damn Jeff. “Push me, Pull me”. What where you thinking. Hate it. 
    Binaural. Some very strong songs but again Jeff is shitting me and I love the dude. Coolest guy on earth but songwriter is something else. 
    “Gods Dice”. Gods shit actually. 
    But then you realize that “NAIS” is his song. Damn. That one is crazy good. 
    Riot Act. The almost lost me with this album. Only a few songs make it, rest is shit with “Ghost & Help help” as rock bottom. 

    Pearl Jam the Avocado album. Some good, some bad but also very shit numbers. 
    Are they still my band?
    Yes, live they always come through. Luckily in Amsterdam it is always Ten and Vs time. 

    Finally Backspacer. Almost every song is hitting me. The End doesn’t warm me up. 
    They are getting back on track. 
    Lightning Bolt. No bad songs. They are definitely back. 
    Live they always come through but please, never ever play Foxy live.

    No bad songs on Lightning Bolt? You remind me of Fanch who would do drunken reviews of albums on this board. I can’t say I agree with much of what you posted. You clearly don’t care for experimental music, and that’s fine. But I think you’re really missing out on some solid songs. Not the best songs, but songs I’d rank higher than pretty much anything from the last 3 albums.

    Aside from the filler tracks, I'd say Let The Records Play is my least favourite. I had a lot of hate for Do The Evolution back in the day but it mellowed a little as I saw some great live versions (Ed's high note in Stockholm 2012 was insane). Songs redeem themselves in my eyes if they are way better live-eg I don't like the sound of Binaural but love hearing those tracks in concert. I could really feel the bite of Stone's guitar in Can't Deny Me at Fenway and I can tolerate it now haha. Gonna See My Friend, No Way and a couple others never grew on me as time passed. But it's all a subjective crapshoot isn't it. They never needed my opinion while writing my favourite music ever and I'd never ever want our opinions to influence them for fear of fixing what isn't broken.

    Foxy mop is the only song I cannot listen to at all. It's the only one I skip 100% of the time.

  • Can I add Future Days. I hadn’t heard it in a year or so and it came on today. Ranks with Ole, Johnny Guitar and Let the Records Play

    You've listed two of my least favourite: Ole and Johnny Guitar.

    I'll never forget in Vancouver, when Eddie spazzed out on those people near the front for not rocking out to Ole.

    They busted it out a few times and then seemed to discard it. I can't recall seeing it on any setlist for a long time. They probably had a team meeting and said, "Guys... let's just be honest with ourselves. Is Ole a groovy tune or not?"

    I dig it. And I don't think there is any filler at all on Vitalogy (or any other PJ album for that matter).

    honestly, Foxy Mop and Pry, To and the other "experimental songs" aren't filler. same with Writer's Block and everything else. They are creative expressions of how the band were feeling at the time. sometimes they seem like a "bridge" from one song to the next. I don't ever skip them like I skip Future Days or Sirens.

    I don't like Grievance or Breakerfall, among others.  Nonetheless I like an incredibly high percentage of the catalog.
