Remind yourself why you love Pearl Jam!,
This review is from: Lost Dogs (Audio CD)
If like me you lost faith in Pearl Jam with the lacking Binaural and then the classic-free Riot Act then like me you may be content with this - an album of odds and ends that hark back to more inspired times.
Oddly enough, outtakes from the last two albums are better than anything else on those records - bizzare!
I have all Pearl Jams studio albums but had never bothered to collect all the singles and rarities as I got into them kinda late with Vitalogy.
So what you get with Lost Dogs is a chance to play the producer - hunt through the 30 tracks here and make your own album of quality tracks - there's plenty to choose from.
Would have preferred one disc of good songs and one of the curio stuff as the flow is kinda weird.
My advice - buy the Singles soundtrack for the two excellent tracks, then buy the Merkinball EP for another two forgotton gems, then buy this and you can create an album better than almost anything else they have put out.
All Night, Sad, Down, Alone, Education, You, Undone, Hold On, Yellow Ledbetter, Other Side, Hard To Imagine, Wash, Dead Man...
These tracks are EVERY bit as good as Pearl Jams better album tracks and singles. BUY IT!
