nah, first album was a bore except for a song or two. the new one much improves that
they are on a few list on the more metal centric sites
but wheres the photos for Operators?
best thing i read today
Thats a Lee Ranaldo Jazzblaster, not a stratocaster.
wow, amazing lineup. and almost 70% of the acts rarely even get a mention on the Gum . LOL
im not gonna complain about the Gum’s list. the coverage has pretty much been predictable over the last couple of years and theres nothing much here that other popular “indie” websites dont cover ( i do however, religiously check out Michael Nelson’s metal column).
That said, if you want unhyped, under the radar but still solid stuff, i wouldnt go to the Gum for those kinds of discovery.
i like The Quietus EOY list better
reunion show with The Cardigans? when did they break up?
i for one, dont really care about label hype etc2, im just happy to hear new notwist!
wheres the track?
much heavier! i like!!
Annie is a big PJ fan. she has covered Black in the past
rearviemirror remains that one song on their cannon that truly encapsulates the very best of Pearl Jam.
also, i have to thank the band for introducing me to more experimental stuff, via Eddie’s stint in Hovercraft!
Holy shit, i just realised that was indeed Matt Chamberlain. Talk about blast from the ( wayyy) past
also yeah, Red Mosquito
IN my list there would have been Tremor Christ in there somewhere
and i dont know some of you Pearl Jam fans keep harping on the drummer issue. Move on, the band is happy at this stage with Matt; there may be better Pearl Jam drummers out there but remember its the whole band dynamics/chemistry which holds the band together, not just one drummer. Aint gonna happen that Dave A, Jack Iron reunion….
i actually like evacuation. you could instantly tell it was a matt cameron song ie very soundgarden-ish.
Binaural still reigns as my fav post 2000 PJ album
Pendulum, My Father’s Son & Infallible are really good PJ songs
in the mainstream indie sense that is. there’s so much guitar based (rock?) music out there that does not necessarily get coverage on a very indie mainstream site such as the gum.
new four tet and new Juana Molina! excellent end to the week!
shit, this shit is GOOODDD!
The songs are catchy synth pop songs. but my God are they boring live! wheres the energy?
