Like most people, I thought after Pearl Jam finished with the self-bootleg scheme from their Binaural tour, the grungefathers would retire to their Malibu hideaways to spend the remainder of their quickly amassed fortunes on boxed wine and liposuction. Evidently, the market-saturating glut of double-disc live sets didn't quite cover it, so they've released an abysmally recorded "mostly acoustic" performance from Benaroya Hall - a venue that sounds like a high school gym. It's meant to be an unplugged session, yet that doesn't stop them from using electric guitars. However, you can still hear the tremor in Eddie Vedder's voice whenever he croons the word "heaven," and that's what really matters. The problem is that Pearl Jam's songs were written in broad strokes for rock arenas, so they just sound dull and impotent when stripped down for campfire-style strum-alongs. And the constant crowd noise does nothing to enhance the home listening experience.
