5.0 out of 5 stars Everything in harmony., 14 Oct 2013

This review is from: Lightning Bolt (Audio CD)
This album has been twenty years in the making. It is a perfect synthesis of every Pearl Jam moment from their prolific history and back catalogue. 'Lightning Bolt,' shimmers. It is an effortless, peerless amalgamation of classic rock moves, punky idealism and more experimental leanings. Despite these different strands 'Lightning Bolt' is as cohesive as the bands early albums, there is a natural flow and order to the proceedings. There are not, as there was with 'Riot Act' for example, any jarring moments or misplaced experimentation. Even with an aggressive opening three tracks Eddie Vedders growl has mellowed into a powerful emotive voice, the vocals in harmony with the musical surroundings make for a complete, beguiling mix. Currently 'Sirens,' 'Lightning Bolt,' and 'Getaway,' are highlights. These songs are bang up to date but could so easily have been written at the outset of their career. Pearl Jam have never sounded so laid-back yet so vital.
