Pearl Jam's new self-titled studio album is their first in at least three years. During this time period, they released a shitload of live albums. The single released on iTunes including two tracks off the album ["World Wide Suicide" and "Unemployable"] were amazing and 30 second previews of the rest of the CD sounded like Pearl Jam of old. Eddie, Stone, and the gang are back with a vengance.
Tool is the other huge name on this Tuesday's schedule. FINALLY!! It has been a half of a decade since they released Lateralus. Maynard James Keenan started a side project during these years called A Perfect Circle, which has released three albums [two originals; one remakes with a twist]. This new album, 10,000 Days, I have been told, is Tool at its best. The little bit I have heard definately supports this claim.
Another great band [lesser known, but have a solid following], Thursday, also releases their new album entitled City By The Light Divided. This CD sounded good, but not as good as the last album War All The Time, which was a truly a remakable, deep album.
