    It's a Tom Waits cover, and a good song. I'm looking forward to hearing it :D

    I thought it might be a cover. They played it before, a few years ago. Good stuff! :D

    So did anyone see Pearl Jam perform on the VH1 Rock Honors for the Who? They did Love Reign O'er Me and then The Real Me. I personally love Pearl Jam's version of Love Reign O'er Me and thought they totally rocked it at the Rock Honors show. They even had a full string section!

    Yeah, that was badass :cool: The whole program was pretty good but I think PJ owned it [face_whistling] Definitely the best version of Love Reign O'er Me? loved the string section. The Real Me rocked too.


    Strilo, you going to any of the new Vedder shows next month?

    So Pearl Jam is back. They played the first show of Conan on the Tonight Show in L.A. Surprisingly, they played a brand new song from their forthcoming album, whose title was first announced on the show! Backspacer is rumored to be released in September sometime and the song they played was called "Got Some". Anyone else see this? It was a rockin performance, with Mike looking amazingly healthy and Stone rocking out more than I've seen him do in a long time. Sound was an issue, Ed was hard to hear. Good song overall. Cannot wait to hear the studio version.

    Watch "Got Some" from the Tonight Show.

    Yeah, I saw this when it aired and have watched it a couple times since. The performance was pretty rough (I thought it was about the worst I'd seen them do on tv the first time I watched it but it didn't seem as bad on subsequent viewings) but it's a catchy song and I really like what they're doing musically. Not a lot of lyrical depth here and Ed was struggling, partly because of the sound issue and partly because he just seems to have trouble keeping pace with it... I'm sure it will be great once they get it out on tour though.

    Looking forward to the finished product. I guess there's a song Ed has been playing on his little solo tour called "The End" that's supposed to be beautiful, and is thought to be on Backspacer. We'll see.

    With this and the Beatles remastered albums coming out, September is looking to be a damn good month for music =P~

    I know! I am gonna be broke buying all those Beatles remasters.

    As for your accessment of Got Some on the Tonight Show, I pretty much feel the exact some way. I felt Ed was off a bit... maybe because he could not hear well. The song also feels like one of those that seems off kilter at first and then grabs you later.

    What are everyone's thoughts on the new album, "Backspacer"?

    So far, my favourite songs are: 'Just Breathe' and 'Amongst the Waves' - cool anthemic song, kind of a cross between Even Flow (good guitar solo) and Alive (chorus) IMHO.

    Really like the new album.

    I really like it. Short and sweet. Not sure what my favorites are so far. I really need to just live with it for a while. A few of the slower songs in the middle remind me a bit of Ed's Into The Wild stuff. Brilliant. Nice to have Brendan O'Brien back producing. I am sure I will have more thoughts to follow.

    The Last Sellouts

    A take on Backspacer, the first single and Pearl Jam entire from Slate.com, my favorite magazine, period.

    I don't agree with the article entirely. I think Yield is one of their best albums and not at all forgettable. But I thought it was an interesting article. Thoughts on it?

    I don't really disagree with the article in regards to the deal with Target? it's hard to reconcile with the band's previous stances in regards to these sorts of things. However, the article neglected to mention that the band is putting the album out themselves? there's no record label. Deals are always made between labels and distributors, so it's really nothing new. Still, I'm not really a fan of it. Though I am glad that both Target and Pearl Jam only cut out chain stores like Wal-mart and Bestbuy, and one can still pick up this record in their local record store.

    Yeah, this is the reality of it. The world of music has changed drastically in the last 12 years.

    As for the articles assessment of the bands career, they seem to be ignoring the effect of illegally downloading on album sales. Were there fewer Pearl Jam fans between Vitalogy and No Code? Sure, but they didn't leave in droves. They're still one of the top 10 acts in attendance and revenues on tour. As Rogue said, I think Yield was more than memorable, and I happen to love No Code and Vitalogy as well. Riot Act has never felt like a cohesive album to me, and their self titled record was the first time I really felt like the band had stopped moving forward.



    I got Backspacer on Thursday and I'm still digesting it. I really like it so far though. I already think it's better than Riot Act or Avocado. "The Fixer" has grown on me. "Just Breathe" is my early favorite but I don't know if that will stick. "The End" is right up there and "Amongst the Waves" and "Unthought Known" aren't far behind. The opening with "Gonna See My Friend" and "Got Some" is tremendous. "Johnny Guitar" is different from anything this band has ever done before, and I love it. Also lovin' me some "Supersonic" [face_love]
