#18 Pearl Jam "Gigaton"
"Gigaton" is a solid front-to-back record that has given this Dad something to rock hard to while spending more time than usual at home. This is the first Pearl Jam record I have on steady rotation since Yield from 1998. "Gigaton" has the vigor and familiarity of my favorite Pearl Jam records (Vs., Vitalogy and No Code) and a certain fresh je-ne-sais-quoi that has kept me coming back since March. And Eddie's voice has a manic energy to it that hasn't captured by attention in decades. The stand outs for me are "Dance of the Clairvoyants", "Great Escape", "Who Ever Said", "Retrograde", "Seven O'Clock" and "Superblood Wolfmoon".
