Their new CD Backspacer is VERY good.   I really like it and there really aren't any skippable songs.

They are giving away limited edition orange vinyl records of their new album randomly.   They put it somewhere, take a picture, tweet the picture and whoever gets there first gets it. 

They did one near me http://twitpic.com/i2qza  and I got there as fast as I could (about 20 minutes) and by the time I got there it was gone, but I got a cool Pearl Jam sticker out of it. 


Anyway, the new cd is really good and you all should check it out.  It comes out on the 20th I believe.

Cowboy Numbers is right on the money with this one -- Great Album!

 It feels like classic PJ but still fresh and different. :)

I actually have to say that the song they play in the new Target commercial is the one PJ song I haven't completely loathed since "Do The Evolution" came out.

I have no idea, but the chorus is something along the lines of "I've got to take it back again, yeaaaaah" a few times over.

They have had good stuff, it's just been kind of hidden away on mediocre albums.  These are two of my favorites from their post Yield output:

Pearl Jam - Sad

Pearl Jam - Severed Hand

The entire "Avacado" album was aces, IMO. Also, "Do The Evolution" is a severely underrated track. It's fucking awesome when they perform it live.

FWIW, I actually didn't like it either when I first heard it. I avoided it for years.. but just within the past few years it's really grown on me.

The best part of DTE is the guitar breakdown when Vedder starts singing in the distorted voice.  Very cool sounding.

BTW, my top ten:

10. Do the Evolution
9. Present Tense
8. I Got Shit
7. Release
6. Given to Fly
5. Rearviewmirror
4. Corduroy
3. Immortality
2. In My Tree
1. Black

Fucking LOVE Black.  That is one song that I cannot listen to loud enough.  No matter how loud it gets, it's still not loud enough.

I've never been much of a Pearl Jam fan...I got alienated by the non-stop airplay "Jeremy" got and pretty much turned away ever since. I've heard some of their newer stuff and like some of it a bit. I did download "The Fixer" onto my iPod and find it extremely catchy. Very good straight ahead rock & roll song.

That's "In My Tree" for me.  I still like the studio version well enough but the live version is just so good.  I really wish they would have emphasized the guitar solo more at the end of the studio version.  It sounds much more soulful live

I think a lot of it for me, as well, is hearing the crowd ALL singing along to certain songs. It makes stuff like "Betterman" or "Given to Fly" even more enjoyable (especially if you're in the crowd) than their studio counterparts.

"Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town" is probably my favorite Pearl Jam tune.  I stopped paying attention to Pearl Jam after Yield aside from a single hear or there I might catch on the radio.  I do like "Life Wasted", though.

I'm traveling from Phoenix to San Diego to catch a show in October- really looking forward to it.  "Amongst the Waves" and "Unthought Known" are great moments on the new album.

Another one of favourites when played live. Eddie almost always prefaces it with some story or some kind of play to the small towns that may be in the area. This year we got a story about how he was up here paddling in the lake recently and came across Toronto Island - never knew it existed, apparently - and was going on about how he hears that certain interests want to make it more commercial and force out more of the residents, and for us to hold onto that as long as we can, etc. Either way, yeah, great song live.

I believe Kiss has also been doing this since a couple of years back IIRC. For this latest tour, they not only have the shows on CD, they also have this awesome-looking USB drives with the KISS logo that double as wristbands. The USB drive contains the live recording of said concert in 256kb mp3.

I saw Pearl Jam in 96 I think it was, No Code had come out and the show was made up of all my favorite 4 PJ albums.  I fucking love Vitalogy and they played a ton of it.  That was a great show.

Pearl Jam decided to record every show on its 2000 Binaural Tour professionally, after noting the desire of fans to own a copy of the shows they attended and the popularity of bootleg recordings. The band had been open in the past about allowing fans to make amateur recordings, and these "official bootlegs" were an attempt to provide a more affordable and better quality product for fans. Pearl Jam originally intended to release them to only fan club members, but the band's record contract prevented it from doing so. Pearl Jam released all of the albums in record stores as well as through its fan club. The band released 72 live albums in 2000 and 2001, and set a record for most albums to debut in the Billboard 200 at the same time.

Over the past month, "Just Breathe" has become one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs.  It's right up there with "Black".

I got tickets to see Pearl Jam on May 10th in Buffalo.  They were the first concert at the HSBC arena back in 96 when I was in high school...so it's pretty cool to be heading back.

I'll be at their first date of the new tour on 5/3 in Kansas City. Buddy of mine is in the fan club and offered to pick up a ticket for me, so I'm pumped. They're one of those groups that I've missed seeing a handful of times in the past, so really looking forward to it.

The long drive to KC.....no so much.

I never mentioned this (probably because I was so pissed about it), but I got fucked at work and wasn't allowed to take the days off to go to KC so my friend brought someone else. So once again denied seeing a PJ show.......its a bad curse for me at this point since Ive had plans to see them a handful of times now throughout the years and shit always happens to make it impossible to go. I heard the show was fucking unbelievable though, needless to say.

Thats shitty you missed the show, man. They always deliver with an awesome selection of songs, and you never know what you're going to hear, outside of the main few songs that they basically HAVE to play, And you never know how long the show will last. They never leave early, but if eddie's feeling it that night, they'll keep going forever it seemed like. Not complaining btw.  Loved every minute of it.

Still wasnt as good as this time:

I was there.

And nobody ever answered my question:

I was at 1 of the Camden shows from that tour.  I bought probably in the range of 15-20 of those shows on CD, as well as more from subsequent tours.  They've been selling downloads (you can also get them on CDs) on their website from every tour since.
