Anyone that is a Grunge fanatic (or at the the very least a fan of Eddie Vedder, Chris
Cornell, and even Stone Gossard) should definitely find interest in this record, because it
is an absolute juggernaut to say the least. Musically, this album is fantastic and they seem
to use their musicianship to the best of their abilities; hell, 5 to 7 minute tracks on this
record aren't uncommon. It's a shame they never managed to release another album, because
I'm sure it would have been phenomenal.
I know I'm the minority here, but listening to this album can be summed up quite literally with just 1 phrase. "Underwhelming" with the combined efforts of Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell I thought this would be more along the lines of grunge greatness, but every song seems to feel like leftovers from both of the bands weaker songs from their albums at that point in time. Chris Cornell still slays as a vocalist though.
pearl jam without eddie vedder!!1 this definently better than anything i've heard from pearl jam, mainly because the vocals don't suck ass(i'm a hater). however, like just about everything related to pearl jam, its boring as fuck. the track Reach Down is 11 minutes, with about half of it being jamming. do you want to listen to a (pearl jam) song thats 11 minutes long?
A combination of 2 of the best names of grunge. The album as a tribute is great but it lacks in some areas. Most of the album are ballads with the few songs that have feel to them leave you wanting more. An essential grunge album nonetheless.
This Album was sheer brilliant. combining not only the lyrics and vocals of Chris you have Eddie here as well. although it was a one time thing if it had continued they would have done well. Say hello 2 heaven starts this album off great. After that you have Reach down and hungerstrike. hungerstrike a more well known song. well written lyrics and the combanation of both eddie and Chris shine here. then after another song or 2 comes call me a dog. Which is a great song all in all. Agian showing what the two can do together. the entire album was great.
