Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher took a brutal shot at Eddie Vedder a couple of days ago. With news of a new Pearl Jam album, fans on Reddit reflected on the band’s 2006 self-titled album. Odbody_AS2 posted, “I’m an old-timer (roughly same age as band members) so I’m usually biased to the early records, but I’ve been hitting this album hard lately. Bloody hell it’s so good. Had it been created during the band’s peak popularity I think it would’ve been a critical/popular all-timer… and amongst ‘best ever’ lists.”
philthehippy responded, “My favourite PJ album by far. When I say it brought me back from the abyss, I truly mean it. Songs like Come Back helped me to finally grieve for my father who had died 6 years earlier and Inside Job let me finally accept I was broken and just to get on with it.
Marker in the Sand and Gone, my word they gave me some life perspective, Life Wasted was another that lifted me out of cold unfeeling. Yeah, I don’t know where I’d be had the band not put this album out.” A rumored Pearl Jam summer 2020 tour was revealed a week ago.
