Pearl Jam (2006)

Records. The album was the end of one of the greatest gaps without records of the bands life, having its starting work on 2004 and only ending two years later. The album is an agressive, social critic and classical Pearl Jam work and was widely accepted by fans and was a commercial success.




BackgroundEdit

While continuing a cooperative work to write the songs, Pearl Jam produced the album that marked the end of the longest gap on the band's life. Often attributed to personal events, like Eddie becoming a father and touring through North and South America, this gap has started since the times of Riot Act and began with many improvements. One of them was the change of label, since J Records was chosen to produce and release the album.

Composing the songs was described to be a coletive work, with all band members coming to the studio with demos, something similar to what happened on Vs. production, when they also made an album while touring. The album addressed agressive, scientific, objective, and most social critic since Ten. Among the songs, war, life changes and fear of them, powerless, drug and alcohol abuse, critic to religion, national army, unemployment, and two special songs, Come Back  and Inside Job 'Inside Job. The first is a tribute to Johnny Ramone and all members of Ramones and the second is the first song lyrically and musically developed by Mike McCready. The album is colder than the previous one, that even critic of the then current political, existencial and social reality, could not be so objective as Avocado. Also, the songs follow a first perspective view of the protagonist, really pushing all the meanings next to the listener and building a story-like album.
