A fan from the Netherlands, who likes it when PJ goes experimental. Their best albums have that edge. And I like edgy.

  • Both U2 and Stones make records. I thought Jeff made an interesting statement: "This is a broken album". Not sure if he was only talking about the state of the album or its atmosphere. I really get the feeling, they have some tunes, riffs, ideas, ly…
  • bootlegger10 said: Yeah, when I was typing my original post LTRP definitely came to mind and my hope was Ed would use more of Stone's songs than 1 or 2, and I guess do a better job than he did on LTRP (in my opinion).  I would love to see an …
  • The lyrics kind of reminded me of Unemployable. And the  original comment was: let Gossard write the riff and Ed the lyrics  LTRP is an example of that. To me, it was what it was, I liked it: a song about escapism. I wouldnt call it cheesy. I am ver…
  • Stone is a good riff meister, yet everyones hate Let The Records Play. I am not sure why. It is a fun song like Smile. In all honesty: the new album will not satisfy all fans. But no album has since Ten, if I believe some people. So a no-win. I hop…
  • Like the title change. For me doing something out of their comfortzone. Experiment. Come with thoughtful songs in an era we need thoughtful songs. Play with soundscapes. Create that 9 minute song. Give us that guitar solo of Of the Earth, play with …

  • Every band goes through moments of less activity, simply because you cannot force creativity, doesnt mean that they are an part time entity or close to retirement. This is an assumption. Since I am on this board they are on the verge of breaking up …

  • PureandEasy said: I didn't see the original post but I've been around the PJ forums long enough to know asking people to be positive is like expecting Trump not use the words "very, very bad" ever again.  It's not going to happen. Sorry your at…

  • goldrush said: Pap said: I've always hated Tom Waits' voice, but I love a lot of his lyrics. It's nice to hear a listenable cover of this song. It's good, isn't it. I put it in the list, I believe. (The first post, wher…
  • PJ_Soul said: I would love to go back to "track-to-track analyses and album reviews and the excitement brought by new music!!!...... In the meantime, I guess we just have to talk about whatever we can think of to talk about, lol. I think people…
  • Gern Blansten said: fortyshades said: ...not with Sea, Kat, TenC or other people involved in making this forum work. I am dissapointed in us. I am the OP of the thread "New album and rumours/ expecations"". I asked on page 1 and sever…
  • Anyone know more possible songs. I cannot decipher all the tapes in the Lost Dogs booklet. I think I got them all. But I am not certain.
  • I think they want to finish the album first. A tour will be following surely. I hope Europe again, but feel sorry for places like Asia, Australia, South Africa. Maybe they have lost their fanbase there, I do not know, but I know that a specific pers…
  • Matts3221 said: Thank you so very much for writing this! I know I have said a few times that I feel like fans "shit" on the band and I hope that comment did not add fuel to the fire, going forward I will not use that term. B…
  • Zod said: I also don't feel it's all negative.  It's people discussing the current status of the band, and being a little bummed they aren't as active as they'd like.   It's ok to be bummed.  At least the bummed people get to be bummed together…

  • The statement was a bit too forthcoming (no pun intended, or maybe a little 😉) but maybe this album has been a struggle. (Just a guess here.) Just taking the comments of the last two interviews of Jeff and Mike into account. Maybe the album hasn't f…
  • NewJPage said: It's fine if you want to be positive, but thread title of "rumors/expectations" will get replies along that line. Maybe "best case scenario for next album"? Or something similar  I could have done that. But should we walk …
  • VINNY GOOMBA said: jimjam1982 said: Maybe its time for something a little darker and heavier with a couple of amazing slower songs.  A short 10 or 11 track album that doesn't reach on too many songs.  They obviously aren't really a h…
  • ledvedderman said: I'm thinking this should be two different threads. One with rumors...one with expectations.  Or one with positivity comments and one with pessimism. We all are fans of PJ but if you read this board objectively, you get…
  • To think outside the box: what would you like them to do that they never have done before. Off the topic: but I would love to see a desert session with PJ, with Josh as a fellow member and producer. How cool would that synergy be?
  • Red Lukin said: Good luck with that dtr. It's best to assume straight forward family type rock like that last couple of albums . We cant dream, cant we? I believe there is a lot of untapped energy in this band and that they can or will s…
  • BrainofBGA said: I want something complex, that takes us time to immerse ourselves in and an album that doesn’t jump out at us too quickly, they’re the ones that you get bored of quickest. Some of the above points OP that you make in your own ‘…
  • NewJPage said: Do you want rumors and/or expectations or no negativity/bashing?  It can happen. I never understood being fan of something or someon and cannot think of something (possibly) positive about that artist or band to say. Seems…
  • See me as a virtual illeterate, but where can I find this?
  • Chadplam said: fortyshades said: i think I will answer this thread, since there are a billion out there right now. Even though this is about "what next?" it is inspired about de discontinuing of the annual singles. Lots of speculation.…
