"Dani California" is definetly better. I can't understand anything Ed says during "Suicide", the lyrics are almost totally inaudible. Which is a shame, given what he's actually saying. The song just seems kinda basic. There is a lot more going on, musically in 'Dani.' The bridge is awesome. Sounds like a mix of crosstown traffic and highway chile. Frusciante had to be listening to a lot of hendrix when they recorded it.

I think Dani California is much better than World Wide Suicide because WWS sounds the same as all of the other songs on their new cd. I have listened to the new Pearl Jam cd and Im not going to pay money for it. Dont get me wrong, Im a fan of Pearl Jam, but the last 2 studio albums have both sucked in my opinion. I really hope the hype around Stadium Arcadium is true because I want to relive the days of me first getting my liscenes and listening to the Blood Sugar Sex Magic tape for a month non-stop...

On second thought I guess Dani California is a better song but its just so nice
to see Pearl Jam rocking again!

Hmmm...I actually like both songs. I feel like the Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam are (and always have been) two very different groups musically, and it's not really fair to compare them to each other. How can you compare psychedelic/punk/funk with grunge? There's no way you can say that Pearl Jam's new album will "slaughter" Stadium Arcadium. It's like comparing apples and oranges and saying that the orange is better because it is juicier.

I would say that RHCP is a level above Pearl Jam, but thats just my opinion. Thankfully, both of them are awesome, and are both coming out with new albums.

Oh come on how can "Dani California" not stick in your head! "World Wide Suicide" is good but IS easily not as catchey as "Dani Claifornia" and lets face
it both songs are very simple!

Pearl Jam and Red Hot Chile Peppers are different bands with different sounds, but comparing them is fair. They both came into the national eye at about the same time and they share a lot of fans; me included. I think Dani California is a better song than World Wide Suicide. But the new Pearl Jam album is better then Stadium Arcadium, although Stadium Arcadium's easier to get in to from the first listen. Tool's 10,000 Days is better than either of them, but it takes way more patience listen through and it's a lot heavier, so it's not for everyone. Really, I'm just glad that some of the greatest bands from the 90s (that are still together) are putting out some terrific CDs this month. No complaints here. Just make sure you buy these discs so these guys keep making them for us.

A better question would be who is the superior guitar player, McCready or Frusciante?

blargh, why compare? Honestly? i've not listened to Pearl Jam since Vs. era. And i realized why the other day. They forgot they used to experiment with their music a lot more back in the day. WWS sounds like any song i've ever heard from them and I can not understand 90% of what Vedder is singing. Hell I have a hard time with Dani California to be honest, but at least RHCP is more melodic on the ears. But to be fair, RHCP isn't that terribly good at expanding their sounds either, but they've never really pretended to. They do the funk/rock and do it well. Personally? Vedder's lyrics come across way too pretentious imho, politics and music don't always mix that well. Vitalogy was the last really experimental good disc from PJ in my opinion...but sadly it was not a real good success. ;-; I liked the direction they were expanding in that, but it lost some fans so they went back to good ole Classic Coke formula....er music.

I'm sorry, but how are Vedder's lyrics pretentious?

If you don't understand them, then that's your own fault--quite frankly, they're fairly simple and relevant. Pretentious is the wrong word.

Scott says:
The lyrics themselves are not pretentious, just inaudible. The fact that most of the vocals on the album are inaudible, that is pretentious.

Both are good songs. Neither song is the band's best so why compare? There are better songs than wws pj's new album and I'm sure there's better songs on stadium arcadium than dani. I like the sound of wws better and lyrics are far superior but like others have said it's hard to hear all of them. fortunately their printed in the liner notes and they become quite obvious once you read them. Although dani cali still rocks.

I have listened to Stadium Arcadium at least five times since it has been on VH1's "Hear Music First". I also own the newest Pearl Jam cd and have listened to it twice. I'm not sure why these two bands are being compared, but if you insist! Stadium Arcadium is, in my humble opinion, much more enjoyable than Pearl Jam's new one. At first listen, the double cd is almost too much to digest in one sitting (believe me, I tried!), but after listening to the songs one at a time, out of order, I began to appreciate and enjoy each one on its own merit. There are no real surprises on Stadium Arcadium, but no real disappointments either and that's rare for a double album. Pearl Jam's newest, on the other hand, has not "grabbed me" yet. I used to like Pearl Jam a lot, but they have lost my interest over the past several studio albums. I suppose it's the fact that they seem unwilling to give their initial fans what they've been craving since VS. came out. I love the Pearl Jam who wasn't afraid of melody, diversity and even some popular-sounding tunes. I haven't yet identified with the political, angry, perpetually-experimental Pearl Jam and probably won't. As I understand it, this album was supposed to be sort of a return to that early Pearl Jam sound and I suppose, in a way, it is. There is more immediate "catchiness" to it and I felt more excited than I have in a long time about one of their releases. I guess I'm not really that pumped about Pearl Jam anymore because, to me, they've just about done everything they can do with their sound. The Chili Peppers have also probably done that, but they have more tricks up their sleeve and their diversity is much more enjoyable than Pearl Jam's LACK of such. In the end, music is completely subjective and you can like whoever you want to! My favorite tracks so far are: Stadium Arcadium, Hump de Bump, Slow Cheetah, Strip My Mind, Wet Sand, Hard to Concentrate, and Readymade, but I'm beginning to like ALL of them the more I listen! Thanks for reading this!

In response to the guitar question, In my opinion, Fresciante is a better guitar player. He's more original than McCready and his riffs are much sweeter. Ive Been playing for about 10 years and I think Frusciente is just a better player with more creativity, and a better ear....
