I'm so glad meron paren pearl jam fans! haha I live in LA, went to their shows 3 times in 2006, 4 times this year! All the songs from backspacer are really good especially live.

I know alot of people are saying "It doesn't sound like Pearl Jam", but if you listen to their entire catalogs (Studio and Bsides) its like a combination of their previous works.  Supersonic reminds me of Mankind, Just Breathe and The End sound like they came from Yield/No Code. Amongst the waves parang Given to Fly and don't tell me the humor on Johnny guitar doesn't take you to Dirty Frank?...

As far as "powerful" songs... If you don't think Just Breathe, The End, Amongst the waves... are powerful, i dont know what is... lyrically and musically, i think songs on this album are brilliant.

I agree that its definitely a positive album, Up beat and FUN! its a good mix to their previous materials. You can see and feel it too during their shows that the guys are really having fun. All those Yeah Yeah Yeah really translate beautifully live....

Sa makatuwid... their best album since Yield (IMHO, ofcourse) And it might sound weird, but Johnny Guitar is my favorite track on this album, next Force of Nature!!! AMAZING AMAZING ALBUM!!!! I have it on CD and Vinyl.

I know this is off topic but...

if you happen to buy a bootleg, get the Los Angeles Show 3 (The played 4 shows in LA). Chris Cornell showed up for Hunger Strike, and Jerry Cantrell played the solo for Alive ( and if you're wondering if i was there (F*ckin work) i was not. I went to Show 1, 2 and 4. I still regret it to this day not going to all 4) But its OK, Jerry Cantrell showed up again for the last show and they played Kick out the Jams! AMAZING...

Back to the topic...
BACKSPACER ALBUM OF THE YEAR!!!!!

I got lucky  :-D. Yeh when they went to the philippines, grade 6 lang ata ako nun. My bro had Ten in cassette. Pearl Jam is a live band.. so much energy... Too bad they only come around LA every 3 years. I was thinking of flying to philadelphia this weekend to see them, but can't. Yeh, you should buy their 2009 bootlegs to hear the backspacer songs live!! AMAZING!!!!

nagsisisi ako na ngayon lang ako nakinig sa Pearl Jam. heard of them before. pero me, being so snobbish about super renowned bands, hindi ako nakinig sa kanila kasi madaming may gusto...

i was listening to a playlist sa Spotify when a song of theirs played. cant remember what song is it.. pero I was hooked immediately. so i searched for their songs.. played some, and bam! i'm still listening to their songs... im still finding my favorite song of theirs.

how i wish this band took part in the process in the beginning of my appreciation for music and for guitars... oh well, i'll just listen to them :)

Yup. Pero baka sa ibang area ng concert ground. Focused lang kasi sa isang angle eh. 1991, 2nd year high school pa lang ako nun! Bwahahaha!
