33 Songs, 2 Hours 22 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This collection contains several remixes by the band’s main producer Brendan O’Brien that strip the songs of their initial gloss and serve as a well-selected overview of their first twelve years. Several important non-LP cuts like “State of Love and Trust” and “Last Kiss,” are included alongside quirky tracks such as “Yellow Ledbetter” and “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town,” and band staples like “Jeremy,” “Daughter,” and “Even Flow.”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

I'd Like To Buy A Clue As To Why...

AT LEAST ON 8/11/07, THIS ALBUM IS CLASSIFIED AS POP??!! This album, along with an even more disturbing choice, Alice In Chain's Dirt, are in the godforsaken pop category. Can they be any farther from pop. People who listen to pop don't listen to songs like Jeremy or Not For You. On a lighter note, it's great that Pearl Jam's Greatest Hit Collaboration is a 2 disc set, and the way the rockers are on the first CD and the ballads are on the second works great. Pearl Jam has always been an underrated band in terms of their musicianship like with guitarists Stone Gossard and Mike McCready. Eddie Vedder is an incredible singer, as his lyrics just have so much power, meaning, and feeling. Definitely the best meaningful lyric band in rock history, and a great rock band nonetheless. I suggest the whole CD, but at least get Once, Alive, Even Flow, Jeremy, Go, Rearviewmirror, Not For You, Black, Breath, Daughter, Betterman, Who You Are, Yellow Ledbetter, and especially Light Years.

Above and beyond

Now, Pearl Jam is my favorite band, and they often do not get the credit they deserve. They are constantly shoved to the side by Nirvana, now I also love Nirvana, but the truth is, Pearl Jam was more popular during the 90's (as it says in the album description above), and really, Nirvana skyrocketed because Kurt Cobain died, but enough about that. This album is obviously going to be great; it's a GREATest hits album, "great" is in the name. The songs do go in chronological order, only they're split up between hardcore grunge, and softer material. Risky move? Yes, but I see it as an easy way to maneuver through the songs. People say it's a pain, but the truth is, if you're buying this on iTunes, you're probably going to be using it for your iPod, in which switching disks is as easy as moving your thumb around. This is a great collection of songs, and Pearl Jam is good about consistently putting out good music, they're terrific musicians, that's how you get popular. I can't really tell you what the "highlights" of this album are, because this entire album was made to "highlight" their career up to '03 (They've had another album since and are currently working on a new one). Making it go in chronological order is good, because you can see how the music changed over the years and what remained the same. We are also treated with previously unreleased tracks, such as "State of Love and Trust," from the movie "Singles," "Man of the Hour," from Tim Burton's "Big Fish," and "I Got S**t." Overall, just a fantastic album, a must-have for a 90's music fan.
