  1. Isn’t Pearl Jam’s new album brilliant! Can really tell they actually thought about it this time. It feels like a complete album this time.


  2. Jason,

    That’s too bad. I find that it is good to listen to an album that you like more than your spouse while you washes dishes, fold clothes, etc. Kind of cancels it out. If only this were true.

    Hopefully you can proselytize the rogue family members @ some point.
