Pearl Jam – Backspacer

Get ready people – Pearl Jam is back on top with a hard-rocking new album and a tour so sold-out that “getting in” is becoming a sport. Backspacer has just hit stores, and the new single The Fixer is becoming a radio juggernaut. The band is out on the road on a fast-paced sprint across the U.S. before heading down under for a giant stadium tour of Australia and New Zealand. And despite all the activity, the whispers are that these guys are just getting warmed up…

To celebrate the release of Backspacer we’re streaming the entire album right here on Street Date. Click PLAY to hear the whole thing front-to-back, from including the hard-rocking The Fixer.

…it’s an unbelievably resilient record that continues to disclose harmonious wonders with every listen. Finding a middle ground between primal guitar riffs and more solemn songs, Backspacer is a quintessential Pearl Jam record and one of their most accessible; simultaneously searing and yet intensely sentimental.


A thousand rock ‘n’ roll clichés have been built around the idea that guts and glory belong to the young. Pearl Jam’s ninth studio album, “Backspacer,” due out Tuesday, makes the opposite argument. Its 11 breakneck rockers and candidly emotional ballads, adding up to barely more than a half hour of optimally toned catharsis, gain power from the band’s calm but constant awareness of life’s ticking clock.
