Just came on here to post myself. Their home city of Seattle has taken the brunt of this so far in the U.S. so they know what can happen. Sad, but good on you Pearl Jam
It's the art of feelin' naked in your clothes


Yeah, bummer but I've been expecting it. I'm guessing I'll be getting a few more similar emails in the near future.


Don't you ever turn it off


The new LP is expectedly pretty boring overall. Starts out pretty well, but falls apart. I dunno why they're making 5-6 minute songs and hour-long albums at this point.


I got nothing but time anyway...


Oh sure, lots of fans will cherish every second given the quarantine and the fact that it's been 7 years. And that's cool, to each his/her own. I just don't think it's a recipe for success for a late-career record from a rock band. It's longer than their first 2 classic albums, from which they cut extremely strong material. It would be one thing if they were still churning out killer songs with engaging instrumental sections, but unfortunately that's not the case. They're still striking gold here and there, but I would've enjoyed Gigaton a lot more if it was 15-20 minutes shorter.
