5.0 out of 5 stars On Form, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lightning Bolt (Audio CD)
This is PJ back to their very best for the first 7 songs, it's early days to say but I can only think that their 1st album Ten is better track for track over this section of the album and it hangs together really well. However, the final 5 tunes don't quite hit the same heights and don't sit together quite so well. Saying that, the only tune I wouldn't have here is sleeping by myself, as it was already on Eddie Vedders ukelele songs solo album recently. So if I could give it 4.5 stars that would be accurate. Of PJs 10 studio albums this will be in my top 4 I reckon, although time will tell.
To those not familiar with Pearl Jam, basically if you like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, the Who, QOTSA or the Foo Fighters you should love this.
If your already a PJ fan, get this in your collection, it's a good un.
If you've only heard Eddie Vedders solo stuff, into the wild soundtrack etc, then this may rock a bit hard for you, but reckon you'd still really like more than half the album tracks here.

Lonely Revolutions is way better than Only Revolutions...

Yes, the rare B-sides album for Only Revolutions is full of the quirky, inventive, off the wall fun that this overproduced disappointment lacks.

Born on a Horse is great though, Mountains is still anthemic but why's it here over a year since it was a single release, Golden Rule kicks the big one live and Bubbles is good but overlong. The rest is throwaway.

Get Lonely Revs if you can...

This review is from: Got Some / Just Breathe (Audio CD)
Two of the best tunes on Pearl Jam's new album Backspacer. Both tunes are on the album though and no extras here, so for collectors only.

If you've ever liked Pearl Jam though, buy the Backspacer album, it is seriously one of their best ever, I've been playing it constantly in my car for months now and if you've never heard PJ before, it's a good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars yeah yeah yeah, 29 Oct. 2009
This review is from: The Fixer (Audio CD)
Fantastic single that deserved to get a lot more air time on UK radio. Supersonic is the B side. Both on the album, buy Backspacer, it's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a time....Grunge.....The End, 21 Sept. 2009
Backspacer features some of the best music Pearl Jam has ever produced and this superb package, with Tom Tomorrow's fantastic artwork and the inclusion of two free full Pearl Jam concert download links with the CD, offers excellent value for money.

As a Pearl jam fan since 1992, I would comment as follows on the tunes:
1) Gonna See My Friend: the best opener to a Pearl jam album since Go on Vs, a great mix of Vedder's distinctive howl and shades of KOL's Slow Night, So Long in the finale
2) Got Some: easily the best piece of music Jeff Ament has ever brought to a Pearl Jam album and one of the standout tracks here.
3) The Fixer: maybe the catchiest tune they've ever written, I bought it as a single a month ago and am still not tired of it listening non-stop.
4) Johnny Guitar. What an odd title for a Pearl Jam tune but a fantastic, funky track that completes the incredibly good opening quartet to this album.
5) Just Breathe: Beautiful lyrics but maybe a bit over produced here. Will be great live.
6) Amongst the Waves: uplifting, epic, it ranks alongside previous Pearl Jam greats like Given to Fly, or even Alive.
7) Unthought Known: starts like Wishlist but builds to an immense, profound track. Another gem.
8) Supersonic: A bit generic, fast and fun, until it collapses in the middle with spiralling guitars and a thunderous drum break before speeding on again.
9) Speed of Sound: At first, seems clearly the weakest track on the album. But it has a certain quirky, moody quality, like one of the stranger tracks from Vitalogy and it merits its place here.
10) Force of Nature: The best tune I can remember Mike McCready writing for a Pearl jam album and his final, slow burning guitar solo cuts in perfectly and reminds me of Start Again by Teenage Fanclub.
11) The End. An incredible conclusion to the album. A haunting, sad acoustic number from Vedder which will leave you stunned.
