Customer Review

on 21 April 2003
Now this is typical of Pearl Jam...they have released this DVD, it's called Single Video Theory. Sounds pretty good, sounds interesting....let's see what the DVD itself contains....the back cover says absolutly nothing on what the disc itself contains, and just lists band members and production staff. That's just so typical of Pearl Jam. Infuriating to the end. But of course, that is what we like about them...
So hesitantly (although I love everything Pearl Jam have ever done) I purchased the mystery disc. I got it home, and was quite pleasently surprised. So now for the mystery to be finally over...
This fine disc is actually an inside view into Pearl Jam's studio life during the Yield era. Many class Yield as Pearl Jam's worst album, but it is my personal favourite, so I was indeed happy with this purchase.
There are some fine interviews with the band throughout, letting you inside what it's like to be in the studio in Seattle with everyone's favourite fame back-pedalers. Gossard let's you in on his guitar styles and secrets, and the band generally tells you what's on their mind. There are also fine performances of songs from Yield itself.
So a fine package from the PJ boys. There are no additional extras, and no menu either, and amazingly no chapters, but you get the feeling that that's the point. This is Pearl Jam upfront and personal with no barriers, nothing to distract you, and nothing to skip to or past because you need to watch it all. Because this is a fine experience into the minds and matters of a band who although have shyed away, have always wanted your full attention.
It would be of great interest for any Pearl Jam fan, or for anyone who's interested in how a band of such high calibre works, and it may also be for those who dislike the album Yield itself, of which this DVD was based on. It may just change your mind a little.
Oh, and it's worth nothing that there's a barcode on the DVD case, if nothing else...
Excellent. 4 Stars.
