I'm really liking the snippets of lyrics we've got (assuming they're right). But I want those lyrics to LTRP!

Yeah I've been dreaming of spinning some cds
Now I'm awake, dreaming spin the records, spin the records
I take a record, then a grab to the needle
I spin them fast with a nice big player

Let Let...Let The Records Play
Let Let...Let The Records Play

Funny how this whole thread has become devoted to SBM and FD, the songs that everyone fear the most...
When there were a ton of very encouraging comments about many of the other songs...
RM at it's best ;)

After 2 reviews I'm about exactly where I was before. Expecting an album of varying quality, hopefully with 4-5 really good to great tracks that keep me coming back. I have enjoyed all their albums but the last that had me enjoying every thing was VS (well Vitalogy if HeyFoxy is dropped).

Very excited for this. 40 days.

What I find interesting is that the songs the first reviewer was most excited about are the ones that Franz and Cris seemed to be much less interested in and vice versa (see his comments on Sirens).


This piqued my interest as well. Happens a lot of PJ songs down the road, but for initial gut reactions, this are interesting/promising

Yeah. I don't know numbers, but probably one of their bigger songs in the 2000s if I had to guess... based on hearing it everywhere / people knowing about it

I'm intrigued by my fathers son. Both a dark atmosphere and a funny bridge? And "really something new". The work of art line reminded me of that poem in vitalogy.

I'm imagining pendulum is like CC now, I'm gonna be super bummed when it sounds nothing like it.

I don't know about the commercial success but it's probably the most listened to modern Pearl Jam song. Its Pearl Jam's 5th most listened song at last.fm with about 3200 people who listen to the song per week. Mind Your Manners comes next at place 8 with 2700 users and The Fixer at place 13 with 1900 listeners. Last.fm is quite representative with about 35k people listening to Pearl Jam every week.

Good stuff. Was hoping for a darker vibe and sounds like we may get it. Hearing that there's a fade at the bad of LB is so lame though.

I should be able to hold out until the album comes out with the NFL and NHL starting and occupying my attention.

What songs this happens on is the last and most important mystery of the album...

Oh, and the next one is way down at place 36: Unthought Known.

According to wiki:
"It peaked at number five on the Billboard Rock Charts and number six on the Billboard Alternative Charts, which makes it the band's highest-charting follow-up single since "Wishlist" in 1998."

It also peaked at #1 on radio "triple a" songs... which yes, would include crap like "Shanya" Twain :haha:

How does a song called "Lightning Bolt" end on a fade out??... That's just begging to end on a LIGHTNING STRIKE! POW!! SONG OVER.

I'm really not bothered about the fadeout. Far too much is made of that stuff. Backspacer and S/T are not the first PJ fadeouts.
