just awesome

I don't know why, but that particular lyrics slays me every time I hear it.

I liked it, but not that much. The gold standard for me is still the 9-11 telethon version.

It was really bizarre being in New York City after that telethon, in addition to all the other craziness; all that corny talk about a song capturing a moment for an entire group of people, that actually happened. The song was everywhere in the month afterwards. I saw people in record stories breaking down and crying when the owners played that song (which, for some reason, they did over and over).

I can never separate that song for that very specific moment in time, despite the fact that I know he didn't write it for that event. It's just forever tied to that time for me, which is probably why that version does something for me that no other seems to do.

but agreed about the chorus, they don't sound cheesy but he still manages to make them sound fucking huge and arena ready right from the record.

No argument here; The Rising definitely could have lost 3-4 tracks. I still think it's my favorite album he's released since Born In The U.S.A., barring Seeger Sessions.

i was still pretty young (14) when that happened, and don't remember that version well since i wasn't a big fan at the time. unfortunately, what i remember most from that thing is Johnny Reznik and Fred Durst doing a song together which even then i found fucking ridiculous.

but something about Vedder's voice, the acoustic, and the choir really does it for me. plus, seeing bruce watching throughout is pretty cool.

Oh fuck, I forgot about that. Terrible, and I don't even like Pink Floyd.

I go back and forth on Ben Harper, but his version of "My Father's House" was my favorite thing from that show. Might overtake Bruce's version.

Other than My City Of Ruins, I've never liked any of his Bruce solo covers. They're not bad or anything, they just don't take me.

I liked hearing him do Promised Land with Sleater-Kinney, though, harmonica solo and all.

Man, I LOVE the Seeger Sessions. Atlantic City, Jacob's Ladder, John Henry, Poor Man, all that stuff. I just love that he went in the opposite direction from a usual side project. I remember when the news came out that he was doing a Pete Seeger tribute album, everyone expected Tom Joad X10. How wrong we were about that.

all the covers i've heard from him have been really shitty AUD recordings, especially the Atlantic City. really, i just love Atlantic City and it's an acoustic song at heart anyway so i'd love to hear clean sounding version of it.

and is there a SBD out there of that Promised Land? i'd kill to hear that, though i still hold a grudge against sleater-kinney for basically pulling a Lovely Ladies on their 2003 tour.

dude lives in hawaii and surfs all day, he could sing teen pop and Vedder would still hang out with him.

plus he loves Kings Of Leon and Dave thinks O.A.R. is real groovy. i guess not everyone is perfect.

Thanks for capturing my red-x fuckup.

But yeah, no love for Jack Johnson here.

I don't know if there's an SBD on that Promised Land; I just listen to the youtube video. I'd agree about the SK = Lovely Ladies, except the Ladies are worthless and SK fucking rocks.
