Yeah, I've never seen the huge deal about Pearl Jam, although I've liked some of their stuff, particularly the semi-acoustic Benaroya Hall. Seen em live, too, and the sound is a muddle at best.The first album really just left me cold, still does.
Eddie Vedder is popular...
Eddie Vedder did a ukelele album?I don't know if that makes me like him more, or mock him more.
Though that song did not much do it for me, I must say that I agree about Pearl Jam. However, and at the risk of incurring the wrath of M.B., I say this in large part because because I think Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden, and STP's music holds up so much better.
Yeah, I saw most of those bands at the time and it seemed plain that Pearl Jam was a contrivance in comparison. The song above is from 1972 and is apparently prog/folk, which is amusing.
prog/folk, which is amusing.Did you ever hear Ultrasound?
prog/folk, which is amusing.Perhaps Ant Phillips rings a bell?
I never got the fuss over Pearl Jam. I liked "Evenflow" and "Alive." And THAT'S IT. I found a lot of their stuff sort of tedious.
I thought those two borrowed their riffs from Soundgarden songs, so I was down on them.I seem to remember a drummer leaving because he wanted to have FUN.
either that or he exploded.
I plead ignorance. Other than that Nirvana song that sounds like a Killing Joke tune, I wouldn't recognize anything from any of those bands, so they all must suck.
Mudhoney was the good half of the Green River split, Pearl Jam being the bad, and they did a Hate the Police you might like.
Perhaps Ant Phillips rings a bell? We all know what kind of bell.
