Pearl Jam, the band that just won’t quit even if we ask really, really nicely, has put out a new album and a new video.? The single in question is called “Worldwide Suicide.”? Wow.? I’ll bet that has really deep meanings and stuff. . .
Don’t get me wrong, I was a big fan back in the day, but that day is long since past and now they’re even lamer than Metalica.? That is a feat I had not thought possible.? They sound kinda like they did in the old days, without all the interesting stuff.? It’s just crunchy guitars playing music which is quite light and fluffy rather than the solid stuff you remember from the “Evenflow” days.? I’m sure that Eddie Vedder is preaching about something damned important (to him, anyways), but fortunately one thing that has not changed about the band is his entirely incomprehensible vocals.? If anything, he’s even *more* alternative in this regard.
