Pearl Jam

Having released 72 (!) different concert albums in 2000 and 2001, Pearl Jam continues to take a more-is-more approach. The band's latest, a 2-disc collection featuring 31 B-sides and rarities (11 of them previously unreleased) that the grunge gods have recorded in their 13-year career, is another attempt to satisfy completists. While the sprawling set has its share of dogs (like the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tribute "Sweet Lew," on which bassist Jeff Ament, making like Lou Reed, takes over lead vocals from Eddie Vedder), there is at least a single CD's worth of good finds. Pearls include the Springsteen-esque shuffler "Last Kiss," the breezy rocker "Undone" and the blues-tinged ballad "Yellow Ledbetter."
