This is one of their best albums in a while. Really good songwriting and a nice mix of rockers/ballads.

Inbetween a 4 and a 4.5

I agree (both on you view on the album, and the twats complaining on sputnik). The title track and Sirens are some of the best they've done

For me it took a few listens to really start digging it. I was a bit underwhelmed at first.

Getaway is an insanely good track and very addictive. Album is not bad overall but too poppish for my taste. A bit more crispness would suit it well.

Just got this, the new AFI and the new Black Sabbath on physical CDs a few minutes back. Got a lot of jamming to do.

Cool album. Admittedly I've not listened to Pearl Jam's latter records (Mainly the albums released in the last ten years), but this has a well-balanced set of songs. There are more straightforward, punk rock-style tracks (Pretty much the first few songs) and then there are acoustic ballads which sometimes remind me of the Country/Southern rock genre. A few songs get a bit repetitive, and sometimes Vedder's voice is just weak in comparison to the instrumentation, but it's simply another great PJ album.

I dunno about ratings... it dont matter. Music sounds best live and PJ live, wether its 10 or Lightn Bolt is a damn good show.

I actually enjoy that Pearl Jam is keeping its sound. It could retread the "same musical territory" for all eternity and I would be happy.

This is an amazing album. I think 3.0 is slightly too low.
But good review, pos.
