Pearl Jam impress at their worst

Pearl Jam’s 10th studio album Lightning Bolt kicks off at a fair lick, but it’s the slower paced songs that stand out.

Infallible and Sirens are up there with the best ballads Eddie Vedder and his men have produced.

It could be argued this is the worst album Pearl Jam have made in their 23 years as a band, which emphasises the ludicrously high standards they have set, given that it wipes the floor with the majority of other albums released in the past year. GC
