3.0 goodspacejesus | October 15th 13

It's decent, as per usual, but they have already made this album before - and better.rIt's like they write on the Pitchfork site: Pearl Jam on record have essentially been reduced to the rock ?n? roll version of wearing sweatpants: they?ve given up trying to impress anyone, so they may as well be comfortable.

Not as good as Backspacer. It's just a bit too boring.

4.0 excellentDeadwing42 | October 7th 13

Album is very good. Probably their best since Yield actually. They sound very comfortable in their skin, which is great since on the self-titled they seemed to be trying too hard to capture their former grungy-ness at times, and Backspacer was overly upbeat- and upbeat is fine, it just seemed a little awkward at times. This though... it's very balanced. "My Father's Son" "Pendulum" "Sleeping By Myself" and "Yellow Moon" immediately stood out to me. "Getaway" is a great opener and "Mind Your Manors" sucked as a single but works quite as a simple burst of energy on the album.

3.5 greatMikkel | October 22nd 13

Pretty much a 3,8. I wanted to give it a 4, but the last three songs are snoozers done much better by PJ before. However, tracks like Sirens and Lightning Bolt are magnificent, and I'd very much like to see them performed at a concert.

4.0 excellentMAGNIFICENT | October 19th 13

Pearl Jam blend the gorgeous, the agressive and the organic elements of their sound.

4.0 excellentgreencorn5 | September 28th 13

I have 6 songs off this album and every one is really really good. Wait until you guys hear Getaway, I'm pretty sure its the first track, DAMN!

Sirens is the breast song these guys have written in years. I can't believe I'm excited for this but I am
