PEARL JAM CLOSE TO FINISHING NEW ALBUM, NEW SONGS INFLUENCED BY U2 AND PINK FLOYD

 

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready discussed Pearl Jam’s currently in the works 10th studio album in a new interview with The Rob on Pearl Jam Radio on SiriusXM, “The sessions went really well, they went very quick. We were with Brendan O’Brien, and he was kind of whipping us into shape. We all teamed together to bring in another section of songs, we started this project 2 years ago. We just recently finished another 7 or 8 from that or so, we’re listening to them to see which ones are going to end up ultimately on the record. We’re close to the end zone right now, football analogy!” He added, “There might be a few [of my compositions] on there. Not necessarily like ‘Inside Job,’ but there’s one I’m very very proud of.”

McCready also described some of the new tracks, “I think the fans will hear what we are and where we are at now, it’s going to be to their liking I think, it is to us. We haven’t figured it out exactly what everything is that is going to be on this record. Some of the standout tracks on there are pretty amazing. Matt wrote a really cool one that’s kind of ethereal meets U2ness, I wrote kind of a punk rock one and a Pink Floyd thing, so there’s all these kinds of things going on. Ed has written some beautiful numbers, some kind of garagy type stuff and then also some beautiful lyrical kind of things. We’ll put all of those things in the Pearl Jam thing, and hit mix, and mix it up.”

He mentioned that he loves “Of the Earth” but Eddie doesn’t believe they’ve captured the live energy in the studio yet. The Rob said they should title the new album Of the Earth, Mike said it’d need to be on the album though.

Mike said he thinks Pearl Jam could record an album live in the studio someday, “even more of a left turn” than No Code.

I got to see Black Sabbath perform a single off of their upcoming album yesterday.  Just one of the perks of my job.  It was a pretty kick ass song.

Black Sabbath 13:

 

Specific track remarks: 

#1 End Of The Beginning (8:07). Too long a track for an opener but otherwise very good. Very heavy. Ozzy’s vocals don’t evoke dragons and knights and the soaring evil of Dio… rather, they have a melodic but, unsettling quality to then. Not operatic bombast, but understated, melodic eeriness. But it works. This is not the uninspired songwriting of those two songs from the Reunion album — this is real songwriting with some good riffs from Iommi. A very good song. 

#2 God Is Dead? (8:54). This song slays. Very cool riffing and a good melody line. The B section is evocative of the "Holy In The Sky" riff but it still works really well. This is an excellent song, worthy of standing with anything in the Ozzy catalog (thought it lacks the instant memorability of "Iron Man" or "Paranoid"). 

#3 Loner (5:06). Sounds a LOT like a heavy, modern-production version of NIB (I even sang 'Oh yeah' after the appropriate riff). Lyrically and mood-wise it mixes in some Johnny Blade. It’s a good song, but not as good as the previous ones. 

#4 Zeitgeist (4:28). Mellow, and somewhat evocative of "Planet Caravan". It’s fine, but I anticipate skipping this on CD. 

#5 Age Of Reason (7:02). This song kills. My notes (again, scratched in there by keys) are unintelligible. But this one had people pretty fired up. 

#6 Live Forever (4:49). Has a "Children Of The Grave" / "Hole In The Sky" feel once again. A good song, if not as ambitious as some of the others. 

#7 Damaged Soul (7:43). Very heavy blues. Too bluesy for my tastes. Blues blues and more blues, and when you are done with the blues, it shoves another does of blues up your ass. This is overstated — it’s plenty heavy. It just is too (wait for it) bluesy for my tastes. Others enjoyed it more than me. Still, this is not a throwaway, just not one of my favorites. 

#8 Dear Father (7:06). A great song to finish with, again quite heavy with a lot of energy. The B section is the one featured in the video with Rubin telling Ozzy to try again ("… the victims of the sins you devise") The main section is beefier than that part. There is a recurrent tritone riff that is very evocative of the first notes played in the song Black Sabbath. It’s so evocative that one wonders if it’s purposeful… and the riffs appears again at the very end of the song… and then the song ends… with rain… and church bells. Very cool. Very cool indeed.

Careful with that axe, Eugene.  You don't want to get on the bad side of his woman (who lurks here btw).  She would eat you for breakfast.

You seem to have edited your post, but to answer you question (that you deleted) I've never actually rubbed one out at work.  Not because I'm against it, it's just that there is very little downtime in my department.  I do have a buddy in the prop department who jerks it just about every day at work and has no shame about it.  One of the camera operators actually caught him once in the bathroom of a mansion we were filming at.  He didn't believe what he saw but I was able to reassure him that his eyes had in fact not deceived him.

Yeah I saw it and I don't wanna talk about it right now.  Suffice to say the remote almost went flying against the wall multiple times.

I've broken countless electronic devices in my day as a thrower.  Countless videogame controllers, graphing calculators, remotes, desktop computers, hell just yesterday slammed an ipod against the ground a handful of times.

Yeah. I once broke the gun that you use for Duck Hunt. Used to rage after that fucking dog came out and laughed at me. Fucking mutt.

Again, not to derail a thread too much, but in my old bedroom back at my parents house before my parents fixed up my bedroom after I went off to college, there were dozens of holes in my walls from throwing controllers (particularly the heavy and huge NES Advantage) at the walls.  Though I should say, other than yesterdays outburst it had been close to a decade since I deliberately busted up an electronic device.
