Synopsis

Amazon.com
Unreleased tracks from Pearl Jam ("Hard to Imagine"), Supergrass ("Don't Be Cruel"), and Fu Manchu ("Swami's Last Command"), among others, highlight this unusual soundtrack for an independent film about a day in the life of a Chicago cabdriver. Apparently, it's a muted, sordid affair, since none of the tunes featured here approach anything near anthemic heights. Instead these are sonic-noir songs that shift quietly like sand as weight is applied. The unreleased Pearl Jam tune (a studio fave from the Vs. sessions) is Eddie Vedder whispering and getting philosophical. Sparklehorse ("Hammering the Cramps") is outright eerie. Helmet's Page Hamilton offers up only a minute of pure sound. Brad, the Grifters, and Hovercraft (featuring Mrs. Eddie Vedder) round out the package with intriguing--if slight--contributions. --Rob O'Connor

CD Reviews

I bought it for the song...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have an import with a poor recording of Hard to Imagine on it so I bought this CD only for that song. Much to my surprise the rest of the CD is pretty good also. It took a few listens to grow on me, but now I throw this in the stereo on a regular basis."
Hard to Imagine is worth 5 stars by itself!

"Hard to Imagine is Ed Vedder at his best. It is a truly great PJ song. The rest of the album is pretty cool too. A good CD to throw in when your screwing around in the house."
Pearl Jams epic, Hard to Imagine, finally on cd!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this cd because of Pearl Jams, Hard to Imagine (previously unreleased), and was pleased to hear that they had captured its beauty. Brads, Secret Girl and Pearl Jams, Who You Are are true classics ( They deserve five stars), and if you havent heard them before, it is well worth buying the CD. The rest of the album flies all over the place, Supergrass and Fu Manchu being among the better ones of a package of different tunes."
