Even though it's one of their weaker albums, I generally like it. Peaked for me around the third listen, but overall it feels kind of slow, laid back, or something... hard to say. I think that overall Vedder sounds less angst-ridden than at any point in the band's recording career, but he still writes and emotes about things that still resonate with me after 20+ years.
My favorite tracks are Getaway, Mind Your Manners, Sirens, Lightning Bolt, and Swallowed Whole. My least favorite is Let the Records Play. I think the 3.5 stars that Rolling Stone gave it is probably about right - about equal to Backspacer.
: I don't love it, but I'm psyched to see the LA shows. Thanks for the thoughts on Worcester.
