The Years Have Paid Off,
This review is from: Binaural (Audio CD)
Binaural IS, by far the bands best album. It lacks any kind of filler, and every song is very solid. Binaurals key feature is its ability to flow between tracks. Most of their other albums (I own them all) felt like a bunch of songs were just tossed onto a disc. This however, is a REAL album. And stands as a great album, not just a collection of good songs. This new direction is indeed an improvement from their other work. The songs have become more powerful, and more potent. Look back at Ten and you have great technical guitar playing, towering vocals, and pulsing bass lines. They have actually risen above that, and have been able to add more atmosphere and mood to the emotion often displayed on their previous albums. Experience has definitely been benificial for this group of extremely talented musicians. A must buy for any rock fan, even if you're not too big into Pearl Jam.
