I can't believe what I'm saying but every time I look at the album cover I find myself thinking that Lightning Bolt just might be a badass title, but the music is going to have to back that up. You can't name your album Lightning Bolt and have a weak album, you better bring it PJ!!!

Seems like after 10 years you'd be used to this band not giving you exactly what you want.

It sounds like he is used to that, seeing as he said "I don't expect that to change".

Okay, that's fine I guess. But there's absolutely nothing interesting about your kind (that's right) coming to the forum to say stuff like this.

If you have something interesting to say or perhaps some kind of unique critique that tears the song a new asshole, I'm all for it.

If you and your kind (that's right) repeat the same tiresome ("not what I wanted") shit ad nauseum, then I'm gonna go home and bite my pillow.

Yeah, don't know if I can ever get on board with this.

It isn't the worst album title I've heard, that's for sure.

LB doesn't sound much better, unfortunately. I like "Owl Eye."

It's not the best. But MYM and the cover help it tremendously.

Pythagorean Theorem, bro

A squared + B squared = C squared

Seeing lightning bolts for everything PJ related for the next several years is going to be pretty obnoxious.

Evidently MYM + Cover = a terrible album name that's easier to digest

if we're going to look at post-2003 pearl jam, then we've got all of S/T and Backspacer, and then there's Of The Earth, Olé, and now MYM. There's range there. I agree that production has been one issue with their last decade of work.

Yeah it's a pretty weak album title but let's face it, by self-titling their 8th album, they basically said "we're out of album titles."
