Can the word sound
till you've been down so low
The future's bright,
lit up with no where to go,
to and fro the pendulum throws

We are here and then we go
my shadow left me long ago

Understand what we don't know
this might pass
this might last
this may go
easy come and easy go
easy left me a long time ago

I'm in the fire but I'm still cold
nothing works works for me anymore

ahh ahh ahh ahh ahhh
to and fro the pendulum throws

Killing the positive message with an imbedded negative one.
"I like this song"  would have sufficed.
the only Pearl Jam song that I like
Is that the click track version?
Einfach Klasse  
I got everything I ever wanted
Driving in your car at sunset
to and fro  hmm, the pendulum throws
I really like this album.

I just bought a Wadia 321 DAC and I am demoing a RogueAudio Tube Preamp.  The Wadia was a huge overall improvement for all things digital.  The Tube amp sounds good on somethings and questionable (for me) on others.  

The way this song sounds on the Tube set up makes me want throw down cash for it now.

 Awesome to hear music on good gear!!!!  An experience too few have.

Pearl Jam not so much usually - this........................ this is wonderful
Yes, I was right.  It's now a 9.
Goddammit, this is good for my ears.  Instant 8 and climbing.
Like a Eddie Vedder?
not a big Pearl Jam fan, but this is damn good. 8
morning time PJ's radical   : )

The only flaw to this beautiful and haunting song is the abrupt ending. Wished it lasted longer with a better finale.
I bought the delux vinyl of this Album.  Cost me some coin but it was totally worth it.{#Good-vibes}

Funny how Shawn Smith + Eddie Vedder sound so similar.

Any chance of playing Buttercup by Brad?

Intriguing lyrics, meditative percussion... I'm surprised by how dark and vulnerable this track is for PJ. Really diggin' it

Perhaps they're practicing to be Town Criers.
The first PJ song that isn't irritating.

And here I am thinking I normally love them but this offering is a bit ordinary
Yeaaaah! PJ! Pendulum/Yellow Moon best songs on album!

I kind of glossed over PJ in the grunge days. Wasn't really my thing and radio overplay didn't help. But now when I hear some of the B-side stuff I am intrigued. This is a pretty great son, and then I see it is from a new album? Need to take a closer look at PJ, definitely.
Yarling, huh, huh.....huh, huh....yarling.
way cool voice, imo!   Vedder has the ability to season the groups' music to a consistently great sound   Happy New Year All!

Wow, 

What a great seque from Sivert Hoyem to this track by Pearl Jam... really fits and keeps the mood going.   Love RP. Thanks Bill and Rebecca
Good song.  Thanks for playing, RP.  Looking at the comments, there are a surprising number of PJ/Vedder haters.  Personally, I've always been a fan of both.
I still think 'Siren' is the best track from this album.

However, as a weather fanatic, I really like the album title!! {#Umbrella}
Very cool... haven't enjoyed PJ in quite a few albums... this is heading in a good direction.
I usually change the channel as soon as I hear Eddie Vedder's voice but I like this song.
Love it! 10X RP!
Gaah  --   this again?      Thanks PSD
I just don't get PJ - why would anyone listen to them if there was ANY other choice?  Oh, wait...  there is another choice...  like 1,000,000 of them at any given moment...
Oyyy, oy, oy, oy, Oyyyyy.....
Would be better if Eddie could actually, you know...sing. 

Sometimes his limited abilities actually work with the song. Not this time. Interesting sound for Pearl Jam though.  
More crap from PJ.   Thank goodness for the PSD button
I love how Stephen Thomas Erlewine describes the new record at AMG

Ditto here.  
The album cover reminds me of the head of one of those cute little minions from Despicable Me...except it's red...and has lightning bolts making it look rather angry.

Don't know what to make of the song yet.
This album is growing on me very quickly.. {#Roflol}
Pretty cool.
Second to comment.  Love PJ - seeing them 3 times in next 5 days.

Like this song, not yet sold on quality of new album.
NEW PJ!
