New Pearl Jam Album

For about the last 30 minutes or so I have been listening to the brand new Pearl Jam album. I have to tell you, and I am by no means a Pearl Jam fanboy, this is a really great album.

This self titled album has a little of everything, a couple of rocking tunes (World Wide Suicide, Comatose) that really remind me of Nirvana in their prime – surprisingly melodic yet really very grungy and dark. Additionally, the album contains a down tempo ballad (Parachutes) that really showcases Eddie Vedder’s remarkable vocal talents. He is, and will be remembered as one of the great front-men of all time. The rest of the album fill it out nicely and it will prove to be an album that is nice to listen to in its entirety. It will be included in my playlist…

All in all, I think this album is Pearl Jam’s best effort since Ten and will do very well. It should make the Pearl Jam die hards happy as well as cater to the pop-rock radio crowd.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think…
