Pearl Jam’s Bad Coldplay Impression

March 14, 2010

I was never a fan of Pearl Jam but at least they used to have some energy, albeit most of it spent making annoying music. Seeing them on Saturday Night Live recently, though, I was amazed how boring and ineffective it all was. Where’s the passion Ed? As corny as they used to be they did go all out selling it. I didn’t see Eddie’s neck vein bulge even once.

Anyway I also wonder why in hell they need Mr Vedder strumming a guitar. Especially the second tune: Three electric guitars, maybe in some crazy prog rock outfit it might excuse itself but here it’s just three dudes strumming, serving mainly to constrain Vedder’s red face/neck vein act.

I know artists are supposed to grow and evolve and whatnot but turning into Coldplay is not a good career move for Pearl Jam, especially when they don’t have Coldplay-caliber songs (whatever that’s worth).
