The latest Pearl Jam CD rocks!
I got it as a gift & I love it! Very anti-war....why isn't it getting more airplay?

1. It's a nice return to their rocking ways!
As for radio play, modern rock seems to just not have the glory it once did. Pearl Jam's still helping to keep it alive, though.

3. I would give the self-titled CD an A-
That's better than the B+ of Riot Act, but not to the A+ of Ten and Vitalogy.

5. I hear "World Wide Suicide" all the time and have for a while now.
Its a great song, the lyrics are spot on...

i felt the earth on monday. it moved beneath my feet.
in the form of a morning paper. laid out for me to see.

saw his face in a corner picture. i recognized the name.
could not stop staring at the. face i'd never see again.

it's a shame to awake in a world of pain
what does it mean when a war has taken over

it's the same everyday in a hell manmade
what can be saved, and who will be left to hold her?

the whole world...world over.
it's a worldwide suicide.

medals on a wooden mantle. next to a handsome face.
that the president took for granted.
writing checks that others pay.


and in all the madness. thought becomes numb and naive.
so much to talk about. nothing for to say.

it's the same everyday and the wave won't break
tell you to pray, while the devils on their shoulder

laying claim to the take that our soldiers save
does not equate, and the truth's already out there

the whole world,... world over.
it's a worldwide suicide.

the whole world,... world over.
it's a worldwide suicide.

looking in the eyes of the fallen
you got to know there's another, another, another, another
another way

it's a shame to awake in a world of pain
what does it mean when a war has taken over

it's the same everyday and the wave won't break
tell you to pray, while the devils on their shoulder

the whole world,... world over.
it's a worldwide suicide.

the whole world,... world over.
it's a worldwide suicide.

music acts of the eighties and nineties just got written off for the most part. The baby boomers were more loyal to theirs (nauseatingly so in alot of circumstances) and I am so glad that some of ours like Pearl Jam have flat-out refused to go away.

7. I saw Pearl Jam and Steve Earle in Seattle right before the "war"
in Iraq started. There was some serious Bush bashing going on that night!!

I like the new Pearl Jam CD, too.

They are amazing live -- see them if you get a chance.

9. They are quite good live.

I'm not even a big fan of theirs, but I saw them live a little over a year ago and it was very enjoyable.
