Album Notes
Of all the bands to emerge from the early `90s grunge explosion, Pearl Jam was both the longest-lived and most consistently interesting. After several albums that found the group taking an increasingly experimental direction, the Seattle quintet returned to its straight-ahead hard rock roots with 2006's self-titled effort. In 2009 however, Pearl Jam surprised fans again with an album containing some of the unit's catchiest, poppiest songs ever. According to lead vocalist Eddie Vedder, most of the new material was written prior to recording, which was a significant departure from the group's usual in-studio jamming method of composition. The result is one of the unit's most focused and accessible works since the debut album TEN. The first single "The Fixer" (written my drummer Matt Cameron) is a Kiss-like bit of straight-up pop masquerading as hard rock, while "Just Breathe" is melancholy acoustic singer-songwriter music so sharply crafted it would fit well on an Jack Johnson album. Throughout, Pearl Jam performs with its trademark directness, mustering the kind of earthy, cohesive sound that only veteran bands can deliver.

The first Pearl Jam album to be produced by Brendan O'Brien since 'Yield' back in 1998, 'Backspacer' strips Pearl Jam to the basics. Well, this album runs for thirty-four minutes, contains only two songs that exceed four minutes and features up-tempo numbers in abundance. The quicker numbers have titles like 'Got Some' or 'Supersonic' and you may worry Pearl Jam are just doing simple stuff at the expense of their more artistic side. We do get a brilliant mid-section to the album though with slower, more considered tunes - 'Just Breathe' and 'Amongst The Waves', two truly excellent Pearl Jam songs good enough to rank alongside anything else they've done. Some nineteen years into a recording career, that's not to be sniffed at. Well, Pitchfork gave the album 4.6 out of 10 and claimed that Pearl Jam hadn't been commercially relevant for over a decade. Pitchfork have it wrong in this particular case, both artistically and commercially. Commercially 'Backspacer' is doing just fine, having sold close to 500,000 copies in the USA alone at the time of writing - it debuted at number one on Billboard and you can't get any higher than that. The review aggregator site metacritic provides a wide selection of mostly positive reviews, so critically Pearl Jam aren't doing so badly here, either.
