Pearl Jam

So Pearl Jam's new CD drops tomorrow, and I guess that's kind of a big deal. It's been 5-6 years since I've listened to Pearl Jam much, but I like what I've heard of this album. I had no idea it would be as political as it is... or that it would rock nearly as much as the early '90s PJ that once captured my attention. The Pearl Jam aficionados out there will see it's obvious that I'm out of the PJ loop. I imagine that those of you who are interested have already hunted down what tracks are online, but here's a taste:

Pearl Jam - Marker in the Sand

Now for Eddie and co. to reunite with Neil Young and stage a massive anti-war extravaganza. Rockin' in the free world, indeed.

Speaking of Neil Young, his Living With War album is currently streaming here and will be available for purchase on Tuesday as well. I imagine neither are on Donald Rumsfeld's wish list.

While I'm at it, here are a few PJ covers you might enjoy:

Pearl Jam - Roadhouse Blues (live Doors cover)
Pearl Jam - Harvest Moon (live Neil Young cover)

Hope your manic Monday is a hoot.

Bonus track:
O.A.R. (Of A Revolution) - Release (Pearl Jam cover; live 4-8-2005)


The Cubs have sucked ass this weekend, but the Baby Bulls have been hangin' tough (NKOTB style, yo) with the Heat. Here's hoping they can keep it up. Go Bulls!

What's with James Posey taking out Hinrich the way he did?
Nocioni is the man!

Also, props to Tyson Chandler for making an impact despite a horrid stat line.

Whoa! Should have checked that. After listening, you're def right. I'll remove it. Dang, I hate when stuff is mislabeled, and now I've added to the problem. Oops.

Marker in the Sand is PHENOMENAL, I think probably my favorite on the new album so far.

just fyi - that wasn't radiohead doing Sunday Bloody Sunday either - that is the edge playing it solo in sarajevo (and it is very commonly mislabeled as radiohead).

thanks for the PJ tracks. i agree with heather that marker in the sand is awesome.
