Ten has Alive, Black, Even Flow, Release, Porch. You could almost name any of the songs on the album, and most of the b-sides like SOLAT, YL, Breath. How in any universe could S/T beat that?

The pressure of adhering to timelines chided by record labels (who worry about their artists losing visibility and favourability, falling out of taste) as artists were in the past, creates tension, purpose, timeliness and drive to a perfect balance.

As such, a relaxed, comfortable musician producing music without such pressures in a happy, easy, professional environment will produce facile and less challenging music.

This isn't a fact but it's an easy story to tell in terms of interpreting the behaviour of Pearl Jam over the past 12 years.

Equally such, the loss of labels has single handedly resulted in a huge loss of variety available to the consumer in terms of offerings, in my opinion. As a young person growing up in this environment, honestly, what choice of music does one have besides processed pop, commercially conscious hip hop and nebulous EDM?

When I first heard them whip out "Habit" at Soldier Field '95 I thought he was saying, "happen."

Random thought: it is almost 10 years since Backspacer was released...looking at it and LB next to each other in the collection and thinking this is the last 10 years of output is depressing.
I still prefer Backspacer but it sounds like they brought in song doctors. LB sounds like a chemical reaction burning for the last 20 years fizzling out and willing to put together whatever they could to make an album of material just to get it over the line.... So even if they bring out an album in the next 2 years, what will it be like? Will they beat a retreat and try to cut it back, relearn who they are and what is true to them today? Or do they keep going with BOB and have a Springteen like pastiche, zombie, interchangable musical output to support touring?

I kind of feel like their next record will dictate how I feel about this band moving forward. I mean, if they can't tap into the trump administration and Chris's death to make music that feels vital and helps ease our collective suffering, then this just is not the same band I fell in love with

Same. I will still enjoy seeing them live and following some of the archival releases, but will see them as a nostalgia band for the most part.
