My thoughts today

1. Mind Your Manners
2. Lightning Bolt
3. Pendulum
4. Yellow Moon
5. Infallible

6. Sleeping By Myself
7. Sirens
8. Future Days
9. Getaway

10. Swallowed Whole
11. My Father's Son
12. Let the Record's Play

Wow, Yellow Moon really dropped for you, didn't it? Am I remembering that wrong? I thought you were over the rainbow about that song.


Those top 5 are all pretty interchangable. They're all 4.5 star songs for me. Ask me on a different day and it changes.

Fair enough. I just thought I remembered you talking about Yellow Moon like it was your favorite PJ song in a long, long time. Like, since Vitalogy. Maybe I made that up. I get confused. A lot of people post, yaknow.


Eddies best vocal. So you're only half confused

My list is just about a mirror image except LTRP will always be above Future Days for me. The "Great" songs are spot on.

:thumbsup:

Some days LTRP is above FD; they're both jostling for last place.

The songs on this album are starting to fall into place I think.

Songs I want to listen to:
Pendulum
Infallible
Yellow Moon
Sirens

Songs that if they came on I'd listen to and enjoy:
Getaway
My Father's Son
Mind Your Manners
Swallowed Whole
Lightning Bolt
Future Days

Songs that aren't offensively bad, but I have no desire really to hear:
Sleeping By Myself

Songs I'll automatically skip:
Let the Records Play


Still definitely way above expectations.

I really like those 10 tracks...better than anything outside of The End off the last album.


I don't think my rankings have changed in the last month....still really enjoy 10/12 songs on this album. And i can tolerate Future Days more now that i could initially.

I still like these four:

My Father's Son
Lightning Bolt
Let the Records Play
Mind Your Manners

If I never heard the rest again, that'd be OK.

this is where everything is sitting for me, gang:
1. pendulum
2. yellow moon
3. getaway
4. sirens
5. mind your manners
6. swallowed whole
7. lightning bolt
8. infallible
9. my father's son
10. sleeping by myself
11. future days
12. let the records play

sleeping by myself really doesn't fit with the theme of the rest of the album and it's inclusion is ridiculous.

1. Mind your manners
2. Pendulum
3. Lightning bolt (basically tied with pendulum)
4. Sleeping by myself
5. Yellow moon (basically tied with sbm)
6. Infallible
7. Sirens

The rest is fairly interchangeable. All songs I like, but don't love

30th of January 2014:
Love:
Yellow Moon
Pendulum

Really like:
Swallowed Whole
Infallible
Getaway

Like:
My Fathers Son
Sirens
Lightning Bolt
Let The Records Play

Not so much:
Mind Your Manners
Sleeping By Myself
Future Days

Infallible was my first love on this album, but it hasn't quite lasted. I still think it's a decent song, but if it pops up on a random playlist between strong songs, it seems out of place. Yellow Moon, Pendulum, Swallowed Whole and My Fathers Son are the songs that have grown in appreciation. Didn't like MFS too much at first, but now it's nearly in the "really like" bracket. I can appreciate slow songs as much as anyone, but I don't think SBM or FD adds much to the Pearl Jam canon.
