Description

Pearl Jam will release their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton, on March 27th. It marks the band''s first studio album since 2013. "Making this record was a long journey," explains Mike McCready. "It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption." 2020 officially marks 30 years of Pearl Jam performing live, with over 85 million albums sold worldwide and a 2017 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

As I write this, I''m two weeks into the isolation/social distancing necessitated by the coronavirus. Though I''m able to do my job from home and can interact with my family at home and everyone else via phone/web, I haven''t been in another building weeks. Just like everyone else, we''re finding new patterns for our lives and dealing with things as best we can. And just like others, it forces us to take a look at what''s important in our lives, what''s necessary, and what we can let go of.

So, having a new Pearl Jam album—and a good one—is a piece of the world that is extremely welcome. I remember clearly when, thirty years ago, I fell in love with this band. I remember the thrill of rushing out and getting Ten, Vs., Vitalogy, No Code, Yield . . . I also remember the vague disappointment when their albums got a little less exciting. While they''ve never made a bad album, they haven''t reached the heights of those first few, and I don''t suppose they ever will. Still, their last few albums have been quite good, with some standout songs on Pearl Jam, Backspacer, and Lightning Bolt. And I think Gigaton follows up on those "recent" (I say that in quotes because the wait has been way too long) efforts quite well.

The songs that have been available before the full album''s release sound better when put in full context. The tone of the album is cohesive and consistent, sounding timeless and not bowing to any recent trends, still glorying in Guitar with a capital G. But they do work in some new textures in songs like Dance of the Clairvoyants that have never appeared on a Pearl Jam album before. The guitars rock, Eddie Vedder is in fine voice, and the rhythm section is fantastic as ever. This band has never lacked dedication, but this music feels like it has a renewed purpose as well.

Was it worth the wait? I''d say so. Does it feel like the exact thing I need now? Absolutely. I hope my neighbors don''t mind, but this is going to be playing rather loudly for a while.

I’m. On my third time through this album. It gets better every time. I’m ready to put this after the big 4 (ten, vs, Vitalogy & Yield). I was never able to get into Backspacer and the avocado album. This one is great. In my opinion the two singles are the worst two songs on the album. Quick escape, comes and goes, retrograde & river cross are highlights. Maybe it’s my age but this album is great. Recommend.

I’ve been a fan of Pearl Jam ever since hearing “Alive” on the radio back in high school. I remember rushing to the record store to purchase “Vs” on the day it released and not seeing it on the new releases section. The clerk said, “We actually have one copy left behind the counter.” It remains my favorite album of theirs to this day.

I’ve continued to follow them throughout the years. I’ve purchased each subsequent album and have been lucky enough to see them in concert a couple of times. I even got to meet Mr. Vedder after one of his solo shows in Memphis. He was was extremely kind. He went down the line of fans that hovered around his tour bus and made sure to shake hands with each person and carried on a brief conversation with everyone of us. Our personal conversation revolved around our mutual admiration of Sleater Kinney. (He was wearing a shirt of theirs.)

With that being said, Pearl Jam’s new album, Gigaton, is one of their best. Songs like “Dance of the Clairvoyants” and “Seven O’Clock” show them expanding their sound in exciting new directions. “Buckle Up” is one of the most comforting and moving ballads in their vast catalogue. There’s a section in “Buckle Up” that I actually thought was a horn but according to the credits is a keyboard. Regardless, it sounded amazing. And songs such as “Superblood Wolfmoon” and “Never Destination” are some of the best blasts of rock n’ roll to come down the pike in some time. And then there’s “Quick Escape”. This beast sounds like some long lost Zeppelin gem from another dimension. The swagger this song displays through the fiery guitars coupled with the bass and rock solid drumming is truly something to behold. Mr. Vedder sounds like he is literally bursting into flames as he howls the lyrics of “Quick Escape”.
The closing track, “River Cross” is gorgeous. The ending of the song which consists of organ, hypnotic drumming, and Vedder’s repeated mantra of “Share the light...won’t hold us down” is simply stunning.

Without a doubt, pick this album up - and play it loud.
Thanks to PJ for dropping this album during these trying times.

I really enjoyed their previous release, Lightning Bolt. This release seems like a step back into their more hookless albums like Binaural and Riot Act. It''s just kind of boring and has no memorable songs.

PJ and I go back to their beginning. I have all their studio albums and several live ones. Some of these songs are going to be played at all of their future concerts. Critics are going to critic and haters are going to hate. I started listening to PJ when I was 37 and back in college in ''91. I grew up on rock n'' roll and when I heard a song from "10" I bought it that day. Since then I have bought every CD without listening to it first. Some people complain because there is too much of this and not enough of that on each CD. The guys who wrote "Black" have changed some over the years but "Quick Escape" is rock and no one besides PJ is making anything close. This CD is about what is in their heads now. If you don''t like PJ don''t get it. If you like or love PJ this is a must have.

I didn''t like Pearl Jam in 1991/1992/1993. I didn''t like the ''grunge'' movement. It took me years to come around, but I eventually did. I bought "Vitalogy" in 1994, but still wasn''t sure I liked Pearl Jam. I don''t think their sound is easy to like, or even enjoy. I think they are an acquired taste.

Of course, I have all of their albums, but I can''t say they are my go to. In fact, I don''t think I listen to Pearl Jam all that often. I suppose it''s due to several reasons. Like, Eddie Vedder is a mumbler. I can''t tell half of what he sings about. Eddie Vedder''s singing style is moany and whiny. His lyrics aren''t all that interesting. Generally, Pearl Jam have always lacked focus in terms of their sound and lyrics. They always take an indirect approach which is often frustrating, frequently baffling, and sometimes overly self-important.

Yet, they''ve managed to survive for nearly 30 years. Just about every album has throwaways, but sometimes they get it right, like 2009''s "Backspacer". They more often than not, get it wrong, like 2000''s "Binaural" and 2002''s "Riot Act"--two forgettable albums with no memorable songs. 1996''s "No Code" isn''t too far behind. "Vitalogy" is a mixed bag as well.

"Gigaton" is the band''s first album in 7 years, and it rocks and rolls. That''s the good news. It''s not boring, but it is too long (another issue I take with the band). The lyrics are indecipherable due to Vedder''s shoddy singing. It will send you straight to the lyric sheet to see what he''s going on about. "Gigaton" isn''t a bad album, but it''s not as good as "Lighting Bolt" (2013) or "Backspacer" (2009).

"Gigaton" is one of the middling Pearl Jam albums, mixed with some good songs like "Who Ever Said", "Superblood Wolfmoon", "Dance of the Clairvoyants", "Quick Escape" and "River Cross", but the other songs are suspect. Three and a half stars. Above average, but not as good as "Ten", "Pearl Jam", "Backspacer" and "Lightning Bolt".

Here''s how "Gigaton" compares to Pearl Jam''s other works:

1991 Ten: Four Stars
1993 Vs.: Three and a Half Stars
1994 Vitalogy: Four Stars
1996 No Code: Three and a Half Stars
1998 Yield: Three and a Half Stars
2000 Binaural: Three and a Half Stars
2002 Riot Act: Three and a Half Stars
2006 Pearl Jam: Four Stars
2009 Backspacer: Five Stars
2013 Lightning Bolt: Four Stars
2020 Gigaton: Three and a Half Stars

I don''t have the track names in front of me but 1, 7 and 8 are absolutely fantastic. Album has a nice balance of harder stuff mixed with songs that are slower that you can feel the lyrics and Eddie''s vocals. If you''re a pearl jam, get this album NOW.

Anche se il periodo è quello che è, e d’altronde il 10 febbraio quando ho pre-ordinato quest’album chi se lo sarebbe immaginato? Comunque, anche se in ritardo di qualche giorno oggi ho ricevuto l’ultimo lavoro dei Pearl Jam. In vinile. Ci tengo a sottolinearlo perché è il mio primo album in vinile dei PJ, devo festeggiare. È vero che sono un loro fan della prima ora, ma (allora) avevo solo le cassette (registrate) e i cd (dieci anni dopo), e non ho mai preso i vinili (gli anni ’90 erano il momento d’oro del cd con inevitabile caduta del vinile, e io non avevo il becco di un quattrino). Comunque, sono qua che ascolto l’album, ma prima mi sono gustato il booklet allegato (che è enorme, con fotografie stupende), e ora il disco gira. L’album parte quasi come ci hanno abituato i PJ in questi trent’anni, con “Who Ever Said” e continua con “Superblood Wolfmoon” che mi ricorda “Spin the black Circle”, e, prima riflessione, sembra essere tornati a quei tempi, Oggi quando sono uscito per ritirare il pacco ho sentito aria di primavera e un pensiero mi ha riportato ai tempi di “Vitalogy”, appunto. Seconda riflessione, mi rigiro nella “coperta di Linus” della musica dei Pearl Jam, ma un po’ ci sono rimasto male ascoltando il primo singolo estratto da quest’album: Dance Of The Clairvoyants che ora mi esalta. Quando l’ho ascoltato la prima volta due mesi fa, sono saltato dal divano. Ma chi sono questi? I Pearl Jam? Ma hanno cambiato stile, cos’è tutta quest’elettronica? Sembrano gli U2 di Achtung Baby!!! Questo e altre amenità andavo strillando mentre mi aggiravo per casa. Ma la senti? Questa non è una batteria è una drum-machine, come fa ad andare così, suvvia, cavolo, hanno cambiato genere! (nota a margine, la canzone è accreditata proprio al batterista, Matt Cameron) Ora, uno sano di mente, mi farebbe una domanda: ma scusa, prima affermi che non sono cambiati, che la musica dei PJ è la tua coperta di Linus, poi che Dance of the Clairvoyants ti esalta, ma allora? Allora è semplice, ora a mente fredda avrei preferito, mi sarebbe piaciuto, ascoltare come i PJ affrontano l’elettronica, mi incuriosisce immaginare come avrebbero affrontato la questione. Ricordo che Achtung baby degli U2 mi stupì allora e l''ho amato dopo, ma rimane un album solidissimo ancora oggi (parere personale), sicuramente meglio del successivo Zooropa e del pessimo Pop (parere personale). Comunque, poche storie, i PJ hanno sperimentato, non è male, ma già “Quick Escape” rimette tutto in ordine, lunghi assoli di McReady, urla di Eddie, e sound col bollino di garanzia certificato. Così come la ballatona “Alright”, o meglio la (terza o quarta) canzone più intima dell’album. E che “it is Allright” oggi, proprio oggi, abbiamo bisogno che qualcuno ce lo dica. Giusto? Seven O''Clock si muove tra particelle di psichedelia e la voce di Eddie. È indubbio che molto del sound dei PJ sia proprio la voce del loro frontman, che è tornata "normale" dopo la crisi di un paio di anni fa, impensabile avere un altro al suo posto. Certo che ormai Eddie mi ricorda il Boss (Bruce Springsteen) nell’approccio alla canzone (altro parere personale). La prova? Never Destination! Dove il nostro Eddie preferito canta con grinta come avesse trent’anni di meno (forse lo vedremo arrampicarsi di nuovo sui tralicci del palco?). Gigaton non è un album che “sfonda” il cuore al primo ascolto, ma sono sicuro (perché alcune canzoni le ho già ascoltate tre-quattro volte) ha delle potenzialità perché un paio di canzoni diventino pezzi fissi nei concerti. D''altronde anche i Rolling Stones hanno al massimo un paio di brani ad album da suonare nei concerti. Lo so, scrivo bestialità, perché la premiata ditta Keith Mick & Soci ha una discografia da far tremare i polsi e sessant’anni di carriera alle spalle, e mi scuso per le affermazioni che ho fatto, con i fans di tutte le band che ho citato in questa recensione, ma i 4 (quattro) miei lettori abituali qui su Amazon sanno quanta musica mi piace, e come ami fare collegamenti e paragoni. Basta, mi distraggo troppo, anche perché “Buckle Up” e “Comes Then Goes” mi hanno fatto sognare (canzoni perfette per un Eddie solista sul palco con il suo ukulele). Ora però vorrei evidenziare il messaggio dei PJ, ho letto un po’ i testi, ma quella linea rossa sulla cover, che dovrebbe rappresentare il battito cardiaco (del pianeta? Della band? Di ognuno di noi?) mi ha colpito, insieme alle fotografie utilizzate. A me pare un album in cui i temi della protezione dell’ambiente e della tutela della natura sono in primo piano. È molto d’impatto sono le fotografie usate, con immensi ghiacciai che si sciolgono, boschi secchi, impianti chimici arrugginiti che sputano fumi nell’aria. Meno male che i PJ rimangono fedeli a sé stessi, sempre. Magari il messaggio è “imbolsito” rispetto a qualcuno che te lo sputa in faccia con rabbia (le band di giovani arrabbiati che mi piacciono tanto), ma comunque è voce “autorevole” costruita con trent’anni di onorata, ostinata e indiscutibile carriera. Un album che si divide esattamente in due parti, come i vinili che lo compongono, il primo è tutta grinta, il secondo, che si compone di una sola facciata, è puro intimismo. Così ogni fan può anche scegliere quale tenere sul giradischi da ascoltare in maniera ossessiva. Ascoltatelo come volete, tanto ora c’è tanto tempo per farlo, e magari tra vent’anni riascoltandolo ricorderemo che ce l’abbiamo fatta, ancora, nonostante tutto. Alive come cantavamo con il loro primo album, ma poi bisogna provare a rispondere alla domanda che i PJ scrivono sulla quarta facciata del vinile nero lucido (dove ci si può specchiare): Is This You? Domanda intima, ognuno guardi dentro di se…Alive.

Ich freue mich immer sehr, wenn ich höre, dass von einer Band, die mich schon eine lange Zeit meines Lebens begleitet, wieder ein neues Album erscheint. Nun also Pearl Jam, die 1990 in Seattle gegründet wurden und mit „Gigaton“ am 27. März 2020 ihr elftes Studioalbum veröffentlichen. Dreißig Jahre gibt es die Band nun also schon, mit „Ten“ wurde das erste Album vor 29 Jahren veröffentlicht. Ich kann es kaum glauben! So lange ist das bereits her. Nun, manches Mal lohnt die Vorfreude auf neue Veröffentlichungen, ein anderes Mal wird man vom neuen Werk einer Band ein klein wenig enttäuscht. Und wie sieht es bei Pearl Jam aus, knappe sieben Jahre nach „Lightning Bolt“ aus dem Jahr 2013? Gespannt legt man die CD ein und was als erstes auffällt ist, dass man sehr viel Abwechslung auf „Gigaton“ zu hören bekommt. Rockige Lieder stehen gleichberechtigt neben deutlich sanfteren Stücken und auch der Mid-Tempo-Bereich wird abgebildet. Insgesamt ist die Atmosphäre auf „Gigaton“ allerdings eine deutlich ruhigere, als noch auf den Alben zu Beginn der Karriere von Pearl Jam. Das ist kein Grunge mehr wie in den 90ern, sehr viel eher abwechslungsreicher Alternative Rock. Was beim Durchhören des Albums ebenfalls sofort deutlich wird ist, dass man „Gigaton“ vom ersten bis zum letzten Takt durchhören kann, ohne verzweifelt nach der Fernbedienung zu suchen, um einen Titel zu überspringen. Ausfälle gibt es keine auf dieser Scheibe zu beklagen. Das Album läuft in einem Zug durch und lässt an mehreren Stellen aufhorchen. Schließlich fällt weiter auf, dass Pearl Jam auf diesem Album sehr viel Wert auf die eingängige Melodie gelegt haben. Vieles auf „Gigaton“ geht gut ins Ohr, egal ob rockig oder zurückhaltender arrangiert und eingespielt. Eingängige Melodien, die der Gesang des Eddie Vedder wunderschön unterstreicht. Insgesamt verringert sich das Tempo der Stücke gegen Ende der Platte allerdings. Zum Schluss dominieren sehr viel mehr die ruhigeren Momente in der Musik von Pearl Jam. Und die Höhepunkte? Ganz gewiss Geschmackssache und jede und jeder wird auf „Gigaton“ sicherlich ihre und seine eigenen Favoriten heraushören. In meinem Fall sind dies der Opener „Who Ever Said“, eine rockige Nummer, bei der der Fuß ganz automatisch mitwippen muss – ganz gleich ob er will oder nicht, das Lied groovt. „Alright“ beginnt so wunderschön verwunschen und ist schließlich eines jener sanften Lieder von Pearl Jam, in denen der Gesang des Eddie Vedder wunderschön zur Geltung kommt. „Seven O‘Clock“ ist eine Nummer, die im Mid-Tempo gehalten ist und mir sofort ins Ohr ging. Und schließlich möchte ich an dieser Stelle auch noch „River Cross“ erwähnen, das letzte Lied auf „Gigaton“. Wieder ein eher ruhiges Stück, welches eine ganz besondere Stimmung verbreitet. Diese wird durch eine etwa um 1850 gebaute Orgel vermittelt. „River Cross“ entstand bereits im Jahr 2015 und diese, schon auf dem ursprünglichen Demo zu hörende Orgel, wurde auch für die Endversion des Liedes auf dem Album verwendet. Positiv möchte ich an dieser Stelle auch noch das Cover-Bild des Fotografen Paul Nicklen und die Aufmachung der CD überhaupt erwähnen. In dem Hardcover befindet sich eingeheftet ein kleines Büchlein, selbstverständlich mit allen Texten, den Credits und einigen künstlerisch gestalteten Bildern. Sehr gelungen. Fazit: Knappe sieben Jahre hat es gedauert, bis Pearl Jam ihren Fans ein neues Studioalbum präsentieren. Das Warten hat sich gelohnt. „Gigaton“ klingt abwechslungsreich, die Lieder gehen ins Ohr und rocken auch mal. Nicht mehr ganz so viel wie früher auf den ersten Alben, trotzdem überzeugt dieses Album – durch viel Abwechslung und tolle Melodien.

Pearl Jam have a made a great album without a single duff track. My personal favourite is ''Dance of the Clairvoyants'' - a rousing number harping back to the best of Talking Heads. Eddie''s voice sounds angry and raw (always when it''s at it''s best in my view) and the guitar and drums pump the sound out. It is to be played LOUD! If you love PJ''s early stuff then I think you''ll really like this.

Where do I start. This is just an amazing album without a weak track in sight. The songs flow from one to the next with some rocky tracks contrasting with the more reflective ones. My personal favourites are Who ever said; Superblood wolf moon; Alright; 7 o’clock; Comes then goes and probably best of all, River cross. I felt the last album, Lightning Bolt, was poor by PJ standards but they really are back to their best here and I would go as far as to say this may be their best yet. This album has been a godsend during lockdown! Now buy it....you will not be disappointed!
