I certainly don't hate Backspacer. It's my least favorite Pearl Jam album but I like all of their albums.

What is the biggest change on the new mix?

The songs sound quite a bit fuller and more muscular, and you pick up on a lot of new details. It's actually a bit louder in its way, unlike the S/T mix


Just started listening to it now. Gonna See My Friend does sound more aggressive. It has sort of lost the gloss. Interesting.

I'm sure it is. It's more about laziness. I never listen to music on my computer. I don't have good speakers. I don't want to go through the hassle of downloading it and figuring out how to transfer it to my phone. I already like the album well enough. I don't want to go through all that trouble.


Same, I don't even own a computer at home. My computer at work has decent speakers, but is used primarily for background noise while I work.

I'm hardly ever even on my computer at home unless I'm writing. The music I listen to is either vinyl or through headphones on Spotify, but usually that's on the go. When I'm home it's almost exclusively vinyl.


you heard him, stip, he wants you to press this to vinyl

Got Some was great. Honestly, I've never heard it better. However, something is off with The Fixer version. Worse than the original.

Force Of Nature is superb, but I love either version of that song.

None of the other songs really stood out as better versions, but still it was an interesting listen. I think it does show that these last records could have been better if the mixing/mastering was a bit more raw, and less overproduced.
