A pretty “Race-y” album, Backspacer by Pearl Jam is their 10th album , which was released in 2009. All songs have quite the same effect on the listener's mind. I'd say because of the loud background music, the lyrics seem almost incoherent. Pearl Jam has come a long way from Ten to Backspacer, a total change in their style of music. Though Backspacer doesn't meet the expectations of a good PJ album, its still worth a listen.
