This arrived today having preordered it a month ago or so and I'm a little disappointed. Despite being a massive fan of the boys back in the 1990's, I'll be honest and say that settling down and starting a family in the 00's kind of got in the way and i missed out on a few albums. That was until the PJ20 DVD release and my love for Pearl Jam has once again been rekindled. I've since puchased the albums from the last decade and cannot speak highly enough of the catalgoue of tunes this lot are responsible for. However, I purchased this CD for the old times, a chance to relive the days when I first started following PJ. The sound quality on most tunes is very 'bootleg', and by this I mean, treble tastic in most parts and unclear in others. The tracks are raw but then I suppose that might be the attraction for many, a 5 piece seattle band playing live and sounding live, mistakes, lyric fumbles, the lot. I'm still pleased I bought it to bolster an otherwise spotless PJ collection.
Be warned however, if you're after great live mixes of the magical PJ years, this is not that recording. If you want that, I'd go for Live at The Gorge, a great set of concerts from 05/05 with all the classics on, and played and mixed to a great standard!
