Biography

Biographyby Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Pearl Jam rose from the ashes of Mother Love Bone to become the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s. After vocalist Andrew Wood overdosed on heroin in 1990, guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament assembled a new band, bringing in Mike McCready on lead guitar and recording a demo with Soundgarden's Matt Cameron on ...

If "The Weight" hadn't been nabbed as a song title in the decade in which Pearl Jam's musical aesthetic was formed, it would have made an apt handle for the (uniquely) more Methodist than Bacchanalian rock band whose music has always been utter heaviness, if not actual weariness, incarnate. And nine years after Ten, that supremely weighty debut that's as much landmass as landmark on the American rock planet, on they trudge. And trudge, and trudge, dragging another too-long album which, though ably captured by Tchad Blake, will be greeted-like every predecessor without tracks called "Jeremy" and "Even flow"--with faint disappointment. Which isn't to say Binaural lacks the core Pearl Jam virtues: awe-inspiring live muscularity, determinedly unfashionable riffs and the achingly true-hearted Eddie Vedder's decade-defining howl and piled-high baggage of guilt, sincerity and humility which, perhaps alone in his line of work, he actually means. And in comparison to the awkward musical wilfulness of 1998's Yield, Binaural is a solid, straight-ahead reassertion of this most straight-ahead of bands' first principles. The roiling, Who-ish "Breakerfall" and nervy "God's Dice" kickoff with heads-down urgency; an almost airy "Soon Forget" does something charming with ukeleles; a yearning "Light Years" is the sweetest of the ballads and the fitful, no-more-grunge-titled "Grievance" takes on the World Trade Organisation. Although, unfortunately--and perhaps appropriately in a world made for strutting fakes and egotists rather than pure hearts--it's almost impossible, if anyone's listening, to decipher what Vedder's saying. --Jennifer Nine

The fact that Pearl Jam are practically the only remaining band from the early '90s North-West American music explosion speaks volumes. The fact that they've done it on their own terms further supports their cause. Now they've added another feather to their collective cap by recruiting Matt Cameron (formerly of Soundgarden) and releasing an album that combines the writing talents of the band more than on any of their previous albums. The single 'Nothing As It Seems' was met with mixed reception. It's melancholoy acoustic strumming overladden with echoeing, soaring lead licks was seen as a bad choice by some but that's just it - Pearl Jam have never wanted radio-friendly songs or unit shifters. They make music for themselves and their fans. Plain and simple. The album opens with three moderate/moderate-fast rockers, full of energy and intensity, written by Vedder (vocals), Ament (bass), and Cameron (drums) respectively. Cameron's contribution (Evacuation) sees PJ dabbling in new areas such as quirky time changes and sudden breakdowns that work magically, even suggesting hints at Cameron's former outfit in places. 'Light Years' takes things down a notch and is a beautiful song about loss and love, the infectious chorus will be coming from your shower before you know it. Other highlights include the Eastern-tinged 'Of The Girl', spacey, thought-provoking and crescending 'Sleight Of Hand', and album closer 'Parting Ways', featuring a small string section. Overall this album marks once again a band that aren't afraid to explore musical boundaries, who fully realise the benefits of teamwork and just get better with every album.

I don't understand this album, it'll always be something of an enigma to me. I can only assume the reason this gets slated so much by critics is because it was too commerical. Other than that it is track after track of modern, coherant, superior rock music. I love it.
Most Pearl Jam albums have a quirky, experimental side to them. This is perhaps the only one that doesn't. Even 'Yield' has "Push Me, Pull Me".
"Gods' Dice" is perhaps the finest fast-rocker since "Animal", "Light Years" is an excellent slow, almost ballady number followed by the single and perhaps strongest hit they've had since 'Ten'; "Nothing as it Seems", which I love. One of their strongest songs both lyrically and musically. This is in turn followed by another classic, beautiful song, "Thin Air", which is a Gossard number. Absolutely beautiful.
There are some other crackers here such as "Insignificance", "Rival" (love it) and of course the excellent "Parting Ways." The only song I'm not overly keen on is "Evacuation" but then again it is a Matt Cameron song, which isn't neccessarily a bad thing, just not classic Pearl Jam style. Finally we have "Of The Girl", probably the least accessible song on the entire album and yet one which I now love thanks to the acoustic rendition on the new acoustic double-CD, 'Live at Benaroya Hall'. If Pearl Jam can make an album as consistent, coherant and altogether brilliant as this again, then then will indeed be the greatest band of the 90's.
Beautiful, poignant and in some parts rockin'.
5 Stars.

Pearl Jam are one of the few bands who can 're-invent' themselves and do a good job of it! I have to admit that the first time I heard parts of Binaural on their web site I had doubts as to how good it was going to be. Having borrowed it from a friend (and subsequently bought it from Amazon) for a couple of days I was pleasantly suprised at the depth of the CD (like most PJ CDs they take a good listen to to love!). Full of familiar Pearl Jam riffs and lyrics. All hail Eddie Vedder for his excellent voice. There are some Great 'up' tracks like Gods' Dice and Evacuation and some haunting and frankly scary tracks like Light Years and Rival. Soon Forget despite being slightly odd (Eddie Vedder on the ukelele) is a brilliant track - listen to Eddies' voice and those lyrics! I hope the recent Roskilde tragedy hasn't dampened their love of music. In my opinion they are at their peak in their art.

After the stunning return to form that was Yield, PJ have delivered another 13 tracks of pure, heavenly quality. The maturing tone of Yield continues into Binaural, with the bonus return of their unmistakeable raw edge. Vedder sounds as fantastic/harrowed as ever, and contributes his staple rougher tracks to the album (the stunning opener Breakerfall and pounding Grievance) while Gossard's writing reaches new heights with Of The Girl - as good a song as you're likely to hear all summer. Nothing As It Seems sounds as good as it did on first listening and the remainder of the tracks hold their own without a weak link in sight...

Although not quite as instant as Ten or Vs (which will probably always be PJ's best albums), "Binaural" is very striking in it's own right. The choruses linger enough to bring you back, but the songs have an almost Tool-like tendency to keep themselves just unfamiliar enough to still surprise you on subsequent listens. A mesmerising and addictive album, which just gets better and better the more I hear it! Also, "Nothing as it seems" has a guitar solo very reminiscent of "The Thin Ice" by Pink Floyd, so anyone in love with Dave Gilmour's guitar work (like myself) should check that out sometime.
