A perfect finale to a perfect tour. Summer 2012, Pearl Jam tour, nine shows - unforgettable and emotional, but exhausting in physical terms. The band wanted to close the deal with something special - and they did. You are never gonna find a worse version ... See full review

Powerful show in a quiet way. Nothing about this show is ordinary: opening song, hits in strange spots, a city they visited only once ever. A friendly atmosphere, some stage chit-chat, you can hear them play with smiling faces. I hope they visit Wales ... See full review

It’s not easy to objectively assess this bootleg, because I’ve been there that night. It belongs to that rare and precious kind of shows I will never forget. For some time it used to be my favorite Pearl Jam show ever (today’s it’s not, but it still gets ... See full review

It IS one of the best setlists they ever played in Europe. The setlists they bring to the old continent are somehow inferior to the American ones - but this one is definitely up to that level. If there is a list of most memorable gigs they ever did in ... See full review

This bootleg is special on many levels. It is Pearl Jam's 10th anniversary; which, from today's perspective, feels like nothing - but back then in the nineties time flew slower. 10 years was a lot and you can actually hear it. The band takes things in a ... See full review

Pearl Jam is a people's band - by the people, for the people. They are not programmed to be perfect and most certainly not to please everyone. They are indeed a jam-band - when they take the stage, anything can happen. Of course, "Alive" and "Even Flow" ... See full review

This is by far the best live album by Pearl Jam I’ve heard, and that says a lot considering how many of them they’ve released. This particular gig was a one-off charity event; hence, the special one-off performance of semi-acoustic, quiet, seated songs. ... See full review

This official bootleg is a completely different beast to those released later on a conveyor belt scale. This was the tour when they only started thinking of the whole official bootleg idea (see Atlanta 1994), which wasn't until 2000 - the result of which ... See full review

While I agree that this album is better suited to vinyl, it is still an amazing piece of music. This is where you start. Also, "Morgengruss II" must be one of the more blissful, relaxing pieces of rock music ever created, right there with "Albatross". In ... See full review
posted a review of Popol Vuh - For You And Me. 7 months ago
Hugely underrated album in the Popol Vuh catalog, probably because it belongs to their new age era, with less (although not extinct) kraut traces. So harmonic and soothing, this album can play over and over to me and I am not getting tired of it. It's ... See full review

This is, by general acclaim, one the definite ambient albums of all time. It literally has everything this genre has to offer. A truly epic ride through mesmerizing music and perhaps an opus magnum of Steve’s life that even him wouldn’t match. I wish him ... See full review

"Substrata" is a life-changing experience. It is a seminal ambient music album, a must-listen-and-have for everyone even remotely interested in this genre. For those who don't like or never tried ambient, I'd say this is a perfect place to start, a ... See full review

I love "Soma" with all my heart. It's warm and soothing, but also works well with the dark and cold. It's quite an odd choice really, but to me, it is a go-to album by Steve Roach, at least in terms of his tribal style. It might not be the most popular ... See full review

Disc 2 is pure ambient and is a worthy release on its own, not just a "bonus". I think I have actually listened to disc 2 more times than the main disc 1.

One of the best of the 2000 Pearl Jam tour. Similar to San Diego, Pearl Jam push themselves to some sort of limits on this one, putting all they had had left into the final gigs of the tour, before calling it a day. "Of The Girl" is a nice starter, but ... See full review
