    Default Pearl Jam Thread

    Got the new Double CD of Pearl Jam's Greatest Hits "Rearviewmirror" and it's a pretty good spin. I like the remix they did of Black, Alive and Go.

    Was surprised that Crazy Mary didn't make the cut, I always loved that song....

    Anybody else pick this one up??

    I don't have the new greatest hits CD but I own most of their albums. Everyone says Ten is their favorite, but mine is Vs. It's got a diverse selection of songs and has my favorite PJ song "Rearviewmirror." I like pretty much all of their albums, but Binaural was a real snoozer.

    Default Pearl Jam, Plant Get The Led Out In Chicago

    from www.billboard.com:

    Pearl Jam, Plant Get The Led Out In Chicago



    By Derek Peel, Chicago



    A thousand dollars is a lot for a concert ticket, but Pearl Jam and special guest Robert Plant justified the price last night (Oct. 6) during an intimate benefit for Hurricane Katrina victims at Chicago's House of Blues. Proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross as well as Habitat for Humanity and the Jazz Foundation of America -- none of whom, joked Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder, are subsidiaries of Halliburton.

    Plant doesn't typically play venues this cozy, nor does he usually serve as an opening act, but he modestly submitted to both changes of pace for a strong 45-minute set composed mostly of songs from his new "Mighty Rearranger" album, plus Led Zeppelin classics such as "Black Dog" and "Four Sticks."

    Pearl Jam's two-hour set felt more like a love-in than a concert, with the vast majority of the crowd made up of rabid fans with deep pockets. "It's good to know people still know how to have fun with their money," quipped Vedder.

    With only a passing mention of the event's purpose, Pearl Jam stuck mainly to a career ranging set ("Even Flow," "Better Man," "Corduroy," "Black," "Alive"), each song of which had the audience singing along in unison.

    As the last date on its current tour, the band looked a little beat. But the fun was ratcheted up during the second encore, as "Given to Fly" segued into its melodic inspiration, Led Zeppelin's "Going to California," which Plant and two members of his band the Strange Sensation performed beautifully.

    Plant then stayed on stage for a run through his past, with Pearl Jam as both accomplice and awed spectator. He and Vedder traded verses on Elvis Presley's "Little Sister" and the apt "Money (That's What I Want)" before offering a unique duet: Zeppelin's "Fool in the Rain," with Vedder and Plant sharing a lyric sheet since, shockingly, the latter had never played in concert.

    Following a gorgeous take on "Thank You," with Plant's voice in fine form, he and Pearl Jam returned for Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World," featuring a rare instance of Plant foregoing his frontman status by strapping on a guitar and playing along at Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready's side.

    Pearl Jam will spend the next month fine-tuning its next studio album, due early next year via J Records, before beginning a South American tour Nov. 22 in Santiago, Chile. Plant resumes his North American outing tonight in Grand Prairie, Texas.


    "...during an intimate benefit for Hurricane Katrina victims at Chicago's House of Blues.

    Y'know, can't we just go out and say "We're doing something good for people, we're helping, we're trying to make a difference" and leave the politicking and sniping and negativity on the shelf for just one night? Ya hate the current administration - we get that already. Hatred isn't going to rebuild these peoples' lives, though...

    You make a good point Billy. I love Pearl Jam, but there constant political statments are beginning to wear a bit thin. They are a rock band first and foremost, and they should remember that.

    Pearl Jam Go "World Wide" In March

    February 21, 2006


    Pearl Jam

    The lead single from Pearl Jam's still-untitled new studio album will be titled "World Wide Suicide," FMQB can officially reveal. The highly anticipated new track will impact at radio on March 14. Those who have heard the song have said it is on the rocking end of the Pearl Jam musical spectrum. The new record itself will arrive in stores on May 2 via their new label home, J Records. J Records also released the band's acoustic live album, Live At Benaroya Hall, in 2004.

    Last fall, Eddie Vedder told a Brazilian radio station that the band's new material was "easily the best stuff we've done but also some of the hardest stuff. It's very aggressive, because again, it's kind of a product of what it's like to be an American these days. It's pretty aggressive, especially when you turn it loud."

    That's pretty cool.

    I FINALLY picked up the double cd greatest hits package. Pretty bad ass stuff on there. I used to seriously be into these guys back in the early 90's when Ten came out. Haven't really been into much of their stuff since.

    Are Pearl Jam still together? With a few excpetions, they have pretty much sucked since 'Vitalogy". What happended to the the catchy riffs and the hooks? I hope its aggressive, but I have heard bands say that before. We'll see, I let you buy the new record and u can burn me a copy, I stopped buying there new releases after Yield.

    Default Pearl Jam to release new album

    Pearl Jam Releasing New Studio Album
    Mar 1, 7:11 PM EST


    The Associated Press

    SEATTLE -- Seattle rock band Pearl Jam announced Wednesday that it will release its eighth studio album and first since 2002 in early May.

    The self-titled CD is also its first release on its new label, J Records.

    The album's first single, "World Wide Suicide," will be made available to radio stations March 8, and the same day the song will be available as a free download from the band's Web site, http://www.pearljam.com.

    Tour dates in support of "Pearl Jam" will be announced later this month, the band said in a news release.

    Pearl Jam was formed in 1991 and rose to prominence during the Northwest's early 1990s grunge movement. The band has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide.

    God I love this band. I really can't think of another major band that would do this. Everything this band has ever done is so that its fans wouldn't get screwed. Even the ticketmaster thing was so we wouldn't have to pay a jabillion dollars to see them in concert. It's just too bad it backfired. I'll buy this album in the store instead of iTunes (which i never do anymore) Just because I respect this band that much.

    My top three hasn't changed for a long time and I don't think it ever will. I'm so glad most people are off PJ's early '90's bandwagon. Fuck em all. I have bought and I dig every album they've put out. I promise you I'm not the only one cus every time I go see them, there's about 10,000 other people right there with me. Every few years you can can't on Pearl Jam to release an album with all new songs and tour the world. I wish to God that our band would be this consistent.

    Pearl Jam, the only decent band to survive that whole genre... I perceive them as being the Grateful Dead of the grunge generation...

    Well, the song leaked a little early so the free download is available now.
    The song is OK, not bad but certainly not a return to form. It sounds like it could have been on Yield. At least there's some passion in Vedder's voice on this song. I'd like to get excited for this new record but it's been a long time (10 years) since they've knocked me out (that would be the first half of No Code). Yield was OK but those last two albums didn't do anything for me.

    I totally agree with everything you just said....

    Sirius Sat radio started playing it yesterday in rotation. It's ok, but "Worldwide Suicide" didn't strike me as anything special.
