    Tom, here's a couple of more recent good Pearl Jam tunes.





    And one of their best oldies.

    Convince me I'm wrong? In 3 songs?
    Palace of the Brine
    Letter to Memphis
    (on the album they play in this order, so listen to them in that order)
    Motorway to Roswell

    They have a huge catalogue, which are all awesome, but something about these songs always hit me hard. All three are on "Tromp le Monde".

Keep Idioteque and replace the rest with these, just because we might as well leave out obvious ones like Planet Telex and any singles.




    I asked the person what kind of style they wanted to hear. They responded and I posted the videos that represented that best imo. I had Climbing up The Walls as one for sure since it is my favorite off OK Computer, but it wasnt appropriate at the time. YAWA wouldve been a piano song also, that with Pyramid Song and Fog.

    I like Unemployable and Once, but those and Parachutes (ugh) are the three you would choose? This thread didn't have many good choices for PJ, but they are better than that. The PJ thread had some better suggestions.

    I'm targeting Tom here. And Parachutes is a perfectly good track. I figured Tom has undoubtedly heard a wide enough array of what PJ used to sound like back in the grunge era days, and really a lot of those songs all sound the same and are probably what turned him off. So I took Parachutes and Unemployable because they don't sound too much like PJ. Then Once because it's one of their classic era that you don't hear that much.

    Part of my rule in going about this is that singles shouldn't really be bothered with. If you're trying to convince someone to feel differently about a band you can assume they've heard some of the singles and not liked them.

    I agree on the singles. But Tom also said he hates Ten, so that should rule out Once. Most PJ fans will stay away from Avocado as it is generally considered their weakest. Unemployable is probably my favorite on the album, but Parachutes is so bland. Their strongest work is in the Vs - Yield eras. I'd have included at least something from there.

    Seriously? If you're gonna rag on people for making a bad effort, leave bands that you obviously don't know that much about to people who do.
    7/30 - Shabazz Palaces - Roxy (?)
    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)

    And I think we're all wasting a lot of time and effort with Tom and the Pearl Jam thing. PJ's my favorite band, largely because I grew up with them, they were the first cd's I bought, first bootlegs I heard, etc. If Ten came out today I probably wouldn't care for it that much.

    And Tom is I'm guessing 15 or so years older than I am...he loves the Clash and was around for a lot of the late-70s rock so of course early 90s quasi-alternative rock isn't gonna appeal to him. We'll experience the same thing with new and upcoming bands in the coming years. That's really all there is to it.

    You can hate Ten all you want, hell I do for the most part, but Once is a great and lesser heard track. I actually really enjoy Parachutes. I think it shows a softer side of them that isn't all annoyingly melodramatic.

    Actually no, I'd rather not. Just because you're a fan of the band doesn't mean that you're good at picking songs to use to convince other people. Tom loves my mixes, I have my finger on his pulse.

    Also, blow me.

    and the Smiths are pretty far from Brit Pop, as well

    Dorkfish said he enjoys Lou Reed solo so you guys fail miserably by not mentioning Loaded. Just listen to that whole album, you'll like it.

    Metallica:
    Blackened
    Creeping Death
    Fade to Black

    Pixies:
    Bone Machine
    Debaser
    Dig For Fire

    Grateful Dead:
    Stella Blue
    Friend of the Devil
    Terrapin Station

    Someone convince me about Belle and Sebastian and The Black Keys.

    What are your critical opinons of these artists? What have you heard?


    Though with the Black Keys I suspect you are correct because it is tough to be wrong about them. The exceptions I can think of is if you have dimissed them based on Attack & Release - in which case I would point you to earlier songs such as "10 A.M. Automatic" and "Set You Free" and "The Lengths - or if you have dismissed them as stagnant without having heard Attack & Release - in which case I would point you to various songs on that album but I neither have it in front of me nor know it well enough to suggest specific songs.

    No one should have to be convinced of the Black Keys. But here ya go:



    The ultimate Black Keys riff, possibly the ultimate Southern rock riff since Skynyrd:

    so lucky sent me 4 PJ songs.

    Hard to Imagine
    In My Tree
    Tremor Christ
    Brain of J

    that is the order I listened to them. "Hard to Imagine" did nothing for me. It's more of that plodding sludgy stuff that I associate with PJ and it doesn't work for me. And "In My Tree" is more of that Vedder-groaning-like-a-sick-Holstein stuff that I don't like either.

    But to my surprise it got a lot better with the last two. There's a compactness and concision to those songs that I'd not heard from PJ before. So now at least I can see why people might like them.
