yeah, what a buzzkill. i love the beginning. but, ya'know.

remember when they soundchecked it before LB came out, and everyone was FREAKING OUT how great it seemed to sound.


Oh yeah, it sounded good in the LP clip before the release of the album too. And then....well.


and then.... welcome the first guest appearance on a PJ album: Mrs Christina Aguilera!

Yes, but in the context of truly great songs in a concert setting, it's twice the mood killer.

Tough crowd. I like Infallible. I pretty much like all of this album, except I very much dislike Future Days, and while I like the music and the concept around Sirens, there’s something about Eddie Vedder’s vocal performance that is off putting to me. I think this had the trappings of a great song but got ruined somewhere. I think it would have done better with a Nothing As It Seems vibe than a hammy ballad.

I’ve seen I think, three different killer pj shows where infallible very much derailed the set and it was tangible in the room. Play it back to back with tremor Christ and it might work. They have a similar rhythm I think. People like tremor Christ though.

Cause its a far better song with groove, better lyrics, more interesting guitar work, and a crescendo that is top notch.

Infallible is great on the album but it absolutely sucks live. Ed cannot sing it worth a darn and the guitars are very uninteresting. The production on the album actually shines it up and makes it much better than it really is.

Future Days is the worst PJ song ever. I prefer Olympic Platinum.

This! I mean, it hurts more than Lucky Town and Human Touch combined.

Yeah, this. I really wanted to like Infallible, because I could sense they were trying to at least go somewhere different with it but it just never took off for me.

We'll always have that incredibly murky/intriguing performance of it recorded through cement walls during a soundcheck though. :peace:
