We Are Vinyl present a reissue of Pearl Jam’s sixth album, 2000’s Binaural. True to the title, the record does indeed feature some use of binaural recording techniques, so you can experience Pearl Jam in totally immersive super-stereo. The band put some of that experimentation into the style of the music too. Double LP reissue.

While the album has a lot going for it, it falls short of what I feel Pearl Jam are capable of delivering. The albums speaks in many voices/styles and therefore seems to lack coherence as a total work. I attribute this to the band's collaborative efforts, which I feel will truly bear fruit down the road for the band and its fans. The best tracks on the album ("Nothing As it Seems" and "Of the Girl") are written by Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard, respectively. Vedder's lyrics, as always, are sterling; however, musically his songs seem to fall short this time out.
