Overview

Although it doesn't document the most revealing set on Pearl Jam's 2000 European tour -- most of its 25 songs are well known to even distant relatives of the Jamily -- this London gig still packs plenty of potency. Within the first moments of disc one, Vedder has vented plenty of spleen (on "Grievance" and "Animal," for starters), which makes for a nice segue into the headier spaces of "Even Flow" and "In Hiding." Technically speaking, it's one of the better sounding sets of the tour, with an unusually stark emphasis on Mike McCready's guitar, particularly on a double-barreled salvo of "Not for You" and "Nothing as It Seems."

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven Jacobetz
Pearl Jam expanded their pool of concert numbers for the second night in London. Striving for "something completely different" in the words of Eddie Vedder, this night features the tour debut of some songs from the band's black sheep album, 1996's No Code. Among these are "Sometimes," "Habit," and "Off He Goes." Song debuts from other albums include "In Hiding," "Dissident," and "Not for You." This branching out creates the first real alternate set list of the tour, and it is the first show selected as one of the band's favorites. Just a week into the tour, the guys are still trying to work out the kinks, especially on the songs played for the first time, but the performance is generally good. Vedder curses out Mike McCready in jest for accidentally hitting him with his guitar. McCready, in turn, shows Vedder a scar he had allegedly given him in 1992. The band closes with two huge hits from Ten, "Black" and "Alive." Although that might seem like a logical way to construct the set, it was the only time they did that all year. Overall, the best show thus far on the tour five shows in. However, in the big picture, a concert which is not one of the best of the European tour and not essential.
