One thing you're not supposed to do as a critic is review the album you wish a band had made instead of the one that the band actually delivered. But it's hard not to come up with your own wish list of tunes when you are talking about a rock group as substantial as Pearl Jam. And the selection of material is questionable on this live album.
There's no quarrel with the performances on these 16 tracks, which were recorded during the quintet's frenzied return to live action last summer. And these may very well be the recordings from the tour that sounded best on tape. The band's playing and Eddie Vedder's vocals are indeed blistering.
