    New Pearl Jam Song

    A new Pearl Jam song "The Fixer" was released today to radio stations. Any of you guys or gals get a hear of it and what did you think of it? After hearing it a second time tonight, I think its a great tune. FYI, the new album drops September 20. Can't wait. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!!!

    Been a big fan of Pearl Jam for a long time now. After first listen I thought "meh". I wasnt a huge fan of their last album but I did really like Eddie Vedder's album for Into the Wild

    Re: New Pearl Jam Song

    I caught the 2nd half of it and wasnt very inspired.
    Maybe the beginning is better.

    You can listen to it on Pearl Jam - Ten Club

    Press play on the tape deck.

    Re: New Pearl Jam Song

    Sounds like they are tuning in to their inner Neil Young again. Ever since Pearl Jam worked on Mirrorball, they have installed the signature "Cinnamon Girl-esque" crunch that Young has mastered. The entire No Code album is a prime example. (Although, I feel Yield more than made up for it)

    Good song, catchy, but nowhere near their best work.

    I'd rather listen to "I'm on a boat featuring T-Pain".

    Good for you. However, I have no idea what this has to do with the thread.

    It was a lame attempt at humor.

    What I should have said is: The new Pearl Jam stuff is pretty good but I'll take the early stuff they put out any day. Probably because it reminds me of my college days. The first day of my freshman year, I got off the elevator in Larch Hall and someone had "Even Flow" cranked. Until then, I was still listening to hairbands. I instantly switched the next day to anything grunge or seattle born.

    I appreciate the clarification.

    If bands dont evolve they fail. There is a reason they keep going where others have broken apart. It really helps they all have side gigs as well.

    Re: New Pearl Jam Song

    I really, really like the new song. First listen was a little "meh", but the more I hear it, the more I like it. Definitely some classic PJ sounds in there. Sounds like it would fit in on Yield quite nicely.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
