A Pearl Jam classic,
By A Customer
This review is from: Binaural (Audio CD)
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.
