There arent many tracks post-Ten where they let McCready lose his mind, and this is probably the best of those. 5 staahs.

I'll admit it. When I first got back into the band in 2000 after a 3-year break, I didn't care for this song at all. But thankfully I got smart and now love this song. I will say that I think it's better on the album than live though. The mood that it gives off on the album will always give me goosebumps. 5 stars.

I completely understand all the reasons why people love this song to death; the song doesn't really showcase my favourite strengths of Pearl Jam. Having said that, it does showcase their strengths, particularly in the form of mood / atmosphere, the ability to go from one part / section to another (in a similar way to "Fatal", although I prefer that song) and just, well, to be beautifully "sluggish / lethargic" in a way that only Binaural and Riot Act know how. I could do without all the lead noodling from Mike, particularly on the intro (which, when I first heard it, sounded farcically power-ballad-esque); but now I realise that all of Mike's presence in the song, too, is a strength, if you like that kind of thing. This song is the cooler, more bleak younger-self of "Sirens." 4 stars.

NO!
Just listened to Binaural and Riot Act the past couple of days and it reminded me of just how bland this band is now...its kinda sad...no more mystery no more emotion no more "music" just words and instruments that sometimes make me wonder what the hell Eddie is singing about and why...

RIP PJ :peace:

i was blown away when this one came out. It felt different, yet it seemed like i had heard it before...I love everything about this one. Ed`s voice, Mike awesome leads...and fucking Matt Cameron. He is huge here.

And that bridge!!! :heartbeat: :heartbeat: :heartbeat:

And yeah the demo was a great find!

5 stars mother fuckers.

A top tier song. Maybe PJ's darkest song? So moody and atmospheric.

This is also a song I've used on a couple of PJ Naysayers. "Oh fucking Pearl Jam sucks!" I put on NAIS "Whoa what band is this?? This song is awesome"

It's a great a song to showcase their versatility and their musical evolution over the years.

Wow. This song sucks me into its black hole every time.
They're not even trying anymore are they? Were they all on heroine? Ayahuasca? What sorcery is this? Fuck.

I kind of agree with Harmless. Not my favorite track, but good, and showcases many of their strengths with this kind of song.
