Pearl Jam - Binaural (2000) Retail CD
If "The Weight" hadn't been nabbed as a song title in the decade in which Pearl Jam's musical aesthetic was formed, it would have made an apt handle for the (uniquely) more Methodist than Bacchanalian rock band whose music has always been utter heaviness, if not actual weariness, incarnate. And nine years after Ten, that supremely weighty debut that's as much landmass as landmark on the American rock planet, on they trudge. And trudge, and trudge, dragging another too-long album which, though ably captured by Tchad Blake, will be greeted-like every predecessor without tracks called "Jeremy" andmore… "Even flow"--with faint disappointment. Which isn't to say Binaural lacks the core Pearl Jam virtues: awe-inspiring live muscularity, determinedly unfashionable riffs and the achingly true-hearted Eddie Vedder's decade-defining howl and piled-high baggage of guilt, sincerity and humility which, perhaps alone in his line of work, he actually means. And in comparison to the awkward musical wilfulness of 1998's Yield, Binaural is a solid, straight-ahead reassertion of this most straight-ahead of bands' first principles. The roiling, Who-ish "Breakerfall" and nervy "God's Dice" kickoff with heads-down urgency; an almost airy "Soon Forget" does something charming with ukeleles; a yearning "Light Years" is the sweetest of the ballads and the fitful, no-more-grunge-titled "Grievance" takes on the World Trade Organisation. Although, unfortunately--and perhaps appropriately in a world made for strutting fakes and egotists rather than pure hearts--it's almost impossible, if anyone's listening, to decipher what Vedder's saying. --Jennifer Nine
