Aside from a couple of tracks, the massively catchy "Got Some" and "The Fixer", this album took longer to really grab me than Pearl Jam's other releases- particularly after being quite blown away by their previous self-titled release. However, after returning to it I have come to really appreciate it for the outstanding record that it is. Some of the softer tracks are reminiscent of Vedder's solo work. There is more economy in terms of McCready's lead guitar work and I missed his lengthy bluesy jams initially. I have since come to appreciate this though as the songs are actually very well crafted. Despite my initial reservations, I like it now almost as much as 'Avocado' and I like it increasingly with each listen.

This album is a must for any Pearl Jam fan out there and the only question you have to ask yourself if you do not own this cd is why not.. An awesome album by an awesome band.

This album really got me into pearl jam and is one of my favourites, as well as their self titled album, was a spontaneous purchase as it was on sale. For me, this is a fantastic album, well written music and "Breathe" is breathtakingly poignant and beautiful.

What a year for Pearl Jam fans. Firstly we're treated to the newly re-mixed / remastered version of Ten, a few stunning tour dates and now, a brand new album, 'Backspacer'.
For me, the last few albums have been slightly, well, underwhelming. I have been practically obsessed with Pearl Jam since the early nineties, but even my dedication was challenged with 'Riot Act' and to some extents the self titled 'Avocado' album. In all honesty, 'Backspacer' is a stunning and triumphant return to form, reminding us just how good they can still be. If the self titled album was a step in the right direction (but for me did not quiet deliver), 'Backspacer' is a giant leap in the right direction, proving the band still possess the appropriate minerals to rock your socks off!
At times, it reminds me of the heavy parts of No Code, but remains coherent and fresh, somehow they've managed to harness some of their awesome live show energy and capture an entertaining and urgent sound. Immediate stand out tracks include 'Got Some', Force of Nature', 'Just Breathe' and recent single 'The Fixer'. If you like, or have ever liked Pearl Jam you should purchase this immediately, FACT.
