Pearl Jam – Backspacer

After all these years, I still feel that giddy sense of occasion whenever Pearl Jam releases a new record. This one rules. Each track is focused, unapologetic and fully alive, as though they’ve finally rediscovered their joy at the sheer fun of just being in a band. Soaring and tender in all the right places, this is also stunning, mature work. Damn, this band is tight.

We have been fortunate to grow along with Pearl Jam as they’ve continually made a career’s-worth of consistent, solid and entirely excellent records. Backspacer is definitely no exception. Independence suits them. Turn it UP!

PS With my two free concert downloads (included with the record), I chose Halifax, NS (09-22-05) and Santiago, Chile (11-22-05). And I downloaded the two free live tracks (Immortality and Last Exit) from the bonus card HMV gave me too. Sweet!
