Peter Suderman doesn’t like Pearl Jam’s latest album.
In all honesty – other than their excellent live album “Live on Two Legs” – I haven’t liked a Pearl Jam album since “Vitalogy”. Oh, they’ve had some great songs on some of their later albums. “No Code” is about half good. “Yield” maybe a third of the songs were decent. But when I listen to Pearl Jam these days it’s pretty much just their first three excellent releases and a few scattered later songs. I keep hoping for a comeback, but less and less as the years pass.
Here’s their latest music video. (For a long time they didn’t make videos.)
