3.0 out of 5 stars A good album..., 14 Oct 2013
This review is from: Lightning Bolt (Audio CD)
This is a decent album. I'm a huge PJ fan and have to admit I wanted the album to be better than it actually is. That's not to say it's bad, not by any means. In fact the opening 8 tracks are pretty great. Yellow Moon too is good. I do however have some issues with the other songs. They're average at best and even contain some pretty cringeworthy lyrics. The net result is an album that teases the Pj fan with glimmers of greatness but ultimately falls short. A good album - yes. Will PJ fans like it? Yes. Do I like it? Yes. But it's not classic pearl Jam in the vein of Ten, Vs or Vitalogy. Nor can I honestly say it's better than Backspacer. At the end of the day it's a decent Pearl Jam album. Nothing more, nothing less. That leaves me with mixed feelings about what might have been - especially if they'd continued the momentum of the first half of the lp.
