I just purchased Pearl Jams new album, Pearl Jam, off itunes.

I am, however, very aware of their fame and importance in the grunge world. Like Nirvana, Pearl Jam brings a level of honesty to the table that is refreshing.
As I listen to the songs and become more familiar with their content I will post more. For now, here is an article from Rolling Stone Magazine on the new album.
