The best way of describing this 6-minute slow-burn anthem (the longest on Gigaton) is Bruce Springsteen meets mid-80s Pink Floyd synthesizers. One of the strongest tracks from this LP hands down. Another chugging rocker returns for the album’s midpoint junction to liven things up again. The tune even name-checks Sean Penn’s debut novel “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. It’s a breath of fresh air that all the rockers found on Gigaton avoid the cliche traps they were previously seen on Pearl Jam songs like “Ole” and “Can’t Deny Me”. Nobody wants this group on autopilot. The guitar thrashing continues on this Matt Cameron composed track. Not only Nice Pearl Jam Jeff Ament Eddie Vedder Stone Gossard Mike Mccready Matt Cameron Shirt does Matt supply the steady drum fury but he also sings backup vocals along with Meagan Grandall (aka Lemolo) which I believe is the first time a female has appeared vocally on a Pearl Jam record.

Leave it to Stone Gossard to supply Gigaton with its most unique and gentle sounding offering despite extremely dark lyrics. I absolutely love this acoustic chord progression. It’s dreamy, it’s melancholy and feels like a tragic lullaby. This tune reminds me of Pearl Jam’s attempt at a sequel for Radiohead b-side “Killer Cars”.Comes Then Goes – This one could almost be a track from Eddie Vedder’s soundtrack album to the film Into The Wild. To my ears, it sounds like only Eddie and his trusty acoustic guitar. The subject matter is rumored to be about the Nice Pearl Jam Jeff Ament Eddie Vedder Stone Gossard Mike Mccready Matt Cameron Shirt’s passing of longtime friend Chris Cornell. Only time will tell if that is the case or not. Either way, it’s an ode to friends long since gone. “We could all use a savior from human behavior.”

Mike McCready wrote the music for Gigaton’s spacey penultimate track that features former veteran producer Brendan O’Brien on supporting keyboards. This is another track that could have easily been on the Into The Wild soundtrack. Eddie’s lyrics allude to the destruction of Mother Earth by mankind. Will this be the final verse contributed by humanity before its downfall? We shall see. The fingerprints of Neil Young are all over this rousing finale to Pearl Jam’s 11th studio album. Think “Like A Hurricane” from MTV Unplugged meets “Organ Solo” from the Dead Man film soundtrack. You have the classic pump organ swirling and Eddie longing for a dream that seems unattainable. “I want this dream to last forever, A wish denied to lengthen our time, I wish Nice Pearl Jam Jeff Ament Eddie Vedder Stone Gossard Mike Mccready Matt Cameron Shirt this moment was never-ending, Let it be a lie that all future’s die….”
