Amoeba Review

10/14/2013

Ten albums in and Pearl Jam are still carrying the torch for '70s rock methodology. Long tours which get turned into a panoply of official and unofficial bootlegs, guitar solos, ballads, rockers, social commentary, corny humor, Pearl Jam are their own self-sustaining lifeworld. They are a capital-R Rock band, doing what they want because their fans want it too and they have fun doing it. This latest record alternates between what guitarist Mike McCready calls "Pink Floyd vibe[s]" and a more "punk rock edge." The two lead singles from the record encapsulate this dynamic perfectly, with "Sirens" taking the roll of a spacey atmospheric ballad with drifting acoustic guitars and tender emotions, and "Mind Your Manners" performing a tense and serrated post-punk scramble complete with dissonant squeals and anti-establishment sneers. What can I tell you about Pearl Jam that you don't already know? They're doing their thing and they're going to keep doing it, the only molds they care to break are the ones they built for their castings.
