    although it's lost its edge over time. still a remarkable album. not their best. definitly not their worst.
    despite its reputation its NOT ONLY for the die hard fans. and its definitly no stadium rock as some people claim

    'Binaural' is an enjoyable album, with the band retiring to their art-folk/rock after the mixed success of 'Yield'. With tracks like 'Of The Girl' and 'Insignificant' providing some contrasting texture to the album, a thought remains as to the lack of inspiration. However, Pearl Jam make mediocre ok.

    Near-brilliant... smoldering slabs of sonic complexity... [#46, p.86]

    If there's an ounce of you that's ever been keen on Pearl Jam, or even if you've never bothered, grab a pair of headphones and let Binaural pummel and soak into you, and relax about it.
  3. A remarkably overt homage to seventies stadium rock?
