What's up with the Islamic crescent in the artwork?


There's a cross also, so it could just be a reference to religion in general, or religious wars, etc.

First listen and I'm really disappointed in "Mind Your Manners." This is pretty much exactly the sort of thing I was holding out hope that this album wouldn't be. The bridge sounds like the fucking Offspring.

Now that I've given it a few listens I agree with you. Gone are the days of music that was soulful and could breathe and allowed the listener to absorb the space in a song. No more Present Tenses or Faithfuls or Rivals. Even the claustrophobia of Vitalogy had a kind of menacingly evocative ether than balanced it's aggressiveness. Now everything's compressed, delivered with an entirely unwarranted urgency that subordinates nuance to immediacy. Too bad, really.

About what I expected.

Even if it is my least favorite PJ album title (by a long shot!), it might just end up being my favorite album cover. I just can't stop staring at it. That eye is creeping me out. Love it!

This is the most pretentious bullshit I've ever read on this board.

I guess this leaves open the possibility for MANY more fake tracklists, so lets see what you've got RM

I've made the art my desktop. There's something so absolutely absurdly fantastic about it. Not at all what I was expecting. And if I wasn't a Pearl Jam fan and I saw it on a shelf, I'd probably dismiss it. But looking at it while listening to MYM is spellbinding.

Nope, it would have Ten Club stickers all over it if that was the case.

you may be right in the end, but comparing an under 3 minute punk blast to mid tempo builders like present tense, faithful, or rival doesn't make sense. that's like complaining that STBC didn't have the soulfulness of immortality.
