  • Sounds like somebody (here's looking at you Ed) doesn't sound too jazzed about Pearl Jam. So in the past few interviews we have had both Mike and Jeff kinda drop some hints that they would love to finish the record out. It's either Ed or Stone. M…
  • I have very little hope for this album if it's going to have a "punk rock" influence. How about making a "Rock and Roll' album that reaches for something a good bit more? Binaural was a great reach on their part. The final tracklisting kinda cut …
  • So 22 songs/demos that will probably be whittled down to 7, primarily "punk rock" like songs a la Supersonic/Ole/Comatose, then Ed will bring in 3 folksy one's from previous Into the Wild stuff, one of which the band will get a hold of and build it …
  • I swear he has given this exact same interview for the last 4 records. Mike is always stoked. With that said, it still sounds like certain members of the band consider PJ to be their side band now.
  • Somebody needs to tell Eddie he's almost 50 years old and putting out garbage like Supersonic and Ole is embarrassing. He doesn't have he voice for it anymore. I am fine with the Pink Floyd vibe, seeing as the one true time they did play around wi…
  • I have always hoped this band would pull a Bowie or Radiohead and just pop an album on their fans without warning. I will be very pleased with a new song (albeit, I DO NOT want another by-the-numbers Ed Just Breathe song or Ole), but I wish just on…
  • Completely agree. They need new music tour behind. They are piling up the Greatest Hits tour shows these days.

  • The ONLY two things that would excite me with this band right now would be: 1. New album. 2. No Code/Yield box sets. A new tour or festival show with no new material to support? Blah. Another Eddie tour? No thanks. New merchandise? Umm…

  • Sorry to hurt your feelings so much, but to say he sounds great these days is pretty fucking comical. He has gone down hill dramatically from 2007-2012. His voice now sounds terrible with all of the quavering and breathiness. His voice cracks and…
  • Denial is a wonderful thing. His voice is pretty much toasted. I am not delusional in thinking he will scream like it's the 90's. What I would hope would be that he could make it through a song without all of the cheesy vocal inflections, croaks,…
  • This band is creatively in the toilet. The fact that Ole was a part of the last session of songs speaks volumes to me. If that song is indicative of what was coming out of those sessions, then the next album will be horrible. It's been a great ru…

  • IMO, this band is pretty much done. They will reconvene for shows and play the standards in ever-growing generic sets, but the days of pushing their boundaries and creating interesting albums are done. It was a good run while it lasted.
  • I would say Pearl Jam as we know it, is pretty done. The band is on the backburner. Eddie is off still trying to be a cross between Neil Young/Bob Dylan. Stone is having fun with Brad. Matt is back with his first, true love, Soundgarden, Mike i…

  • Detroit 2003 is better than MSG 2003 IMO, purely based on it being a bit more rocking and ragged. The MSG one is just a bit tighter.
  • esacks23 wrote: i think someone said it above maybe, but it's like his solos have no direction, no rhythm or rhyme to them, no flow, kinda like alot of the "even flow" solos... just really fast fingers and randomness(his latest, in "ole", sounds l…

  • It's a pretty bland album and I agree with a previous poster that the recording schedules really bore this out. The album lacks that Pearl Jam essence that prevails through the other records. Got Some is the only song which registers a pulse with …

  • Spencer wrote: 2000 sounds the best because the band were incredibly tight, playing great new material, Ed's voice was in great shape and the guitar sounds were thick and chunky. The 2011 bootlegs are the best sounding since 2006, Brett Eliason…

  • Just not a fan of this song. It sounds lifeless and thrown together and the solo is just plain bad and misplaced. Not every song they write is going to be great.
  • Love Boat Captain. Hands down. Saw it twice in 2003. I think a great opener would be NAIS. They did it once in 2000 and have yet to do it again. To me, it worked really well for that show. Also, Who You Are is a great way to open a show IMO.…
  • Sounds like Kick Out the Jams blended with Supersonic to me. The solo sounds very out of place and does nothing to add to the song.
