I waited 10 years to see Pearl Jam here in Mexico. And it was one of the Top 3 best moments in my whole life. These guys really do what the think. Here in Mexico, Pearl Jam is one of the greatest of all time. At least, they are Seattle grunge survivors, they are still here, Vedder didnt take a shot, they still do their music, they still do what they want to do. Here in Mexico we know all this things... why you in America dont? Respect, dudes!
How did this conversation come back? My love of PJ is not due to a lack of exposure to other music. I listen to tons of different stuff. I also love Pearl Jam. Hyberbole aside, they're among my favorite bands, and are the only band that I've consistently listen to since I started getting interested in music. They're fantastic live and their first five albums are excellent. And also they've got great posters.
I like Pearl Jam, most don't anymore. It isn't a bad thing that people donít like them and you do. Opinions are great! You think you are right because you like something; but others think they are right for not agreeing.
I think perhaps you are incorrect in your understanding of the word "suck." Suck, in fact, is a negative term, and inapplicable to Pearl Jam. When referring to Pearl Jam, it's more accurate to use words such as: rocking, kickass, awe-inspiring, epic, mythic and noble.
Pearl Jam is awesome. In fact, I can say without hyperbole that they are the greatest living band. Nay - the greatest band of all time, if not the greatest and best people to have ever walked the Earth. Each song, album, note and lyric are perfect in absolutely every way. They are great, and all who do not agree do not "get it," are deaf, have never actually heard their music, suck, are incapable of recognizing greatness or are jealous due to envy and/or awe, and should therefore re-evaluate their lives, tastes, personalities and gods.
