It probably could've been even better than this. There may be more gems for KurtLeon to uncover from these recording sessions.

Still plenty of dead weight there.

i like the looks of it, even though im not one of the Inside Job haters, i do like the idea of CC closing the album, and Gone is my least favorite, so LiR would be good replacing it

I like the looks of that. But, I'd still want Comatose in there somewhere. Its a good song, but the album cut unfortunately sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

I had this playing on my way into work this morning.
Tracks 1-7 are fantastic... one of the my favourite sequences on any album.

Is this an attempt to steer the conversation away from this album on the Lightning Bolt in a black hole thread?

I'd go for:

Life Wasted
WWS
Comatose
Severed Hand
Marker
Parachutes
Unemployable
Let it Ride
Army Reserve
Come Back
Wasted Reprise
Cold Confession

Let it Ride and Army Reserve feel like sibling songs (sonically), and removing Gone and Inside Jobs strips the album of pretension. Big Wave is okay, but sounds like a B-side to me.

This would have been my 3rd favourite PJ album.

I wasn't trying to start a tracklist debate really... I was just trying to say that there are a lot of really strong elements on S/T, and from those sessions, that suggest that PJ nearly pulled off the near impossible... that is, make a classic album (10 out of 10) that rivals the greatness of their first 3 albums... (which is what we've all been clamoring for, regardless of whether or not you're willing to admit that yourself)... BUT they just seem to miss a few important pieces of the puzzle and instead it's just a really good album (8 out of 10) ...and not the career-defining gem that it was originally hyped up to be.

outside of production, i never really got the hate for this album. i think wws, marker and severed hand can hold up to just about anything they've done. there's some real good songs on here.

Change that to first 5 and you'll start to get me on this. My personal taste tells me that this album is the closest for me to hold up to those first 5. I'd be say first 6 if Mirrorball was considered a Pearl Jam album featuring Neil Young instead of a Neil Young album featuring Pearl Jam - I've been listening and rediscovering that album again for probably the 5th cycle of appreciation recently.

this is also what I would have done and it too likely would have been my third favorite album

The production kills most of the times I get the urge to listen to the album. There is good music on there, but since it doesn't even have the relative change of direction Backspacer did, it's just an album full of nice songs that constantly lose out to the rest of their work.

Unemployable is a beast. :heartbeat:
