Just listened to it for the first time. I don't like to judge after one listen, but on first listen, it seemed surprisingly bland and without any edge. I think even had it been played faster, it could've been way better. Disappointed. "Mind Your Manners", "The Fixer" and "Worldwide Suicide" were all much better lead singles, and I don't even really like "The Fixer."

And while I don't fault them for being political (and I agree with his politics), the song is just too 2018 for my tastes. Between the cover art of the young woman at the protest, and the overt anti-Trump lyrics, it just feels like it's checkmarking 2018 boxes. I know PJ have always been like that (see "Bushleaguer"), but "where's your vocabulary, your ignorance is sinful, etc" is so on the nose. I have no beef with artists making political statements through their music, but if you're gonna say something a million of people have said over and over through the last couple years, at least say it in a fresh way. Anyway, I could easily get past the lack of creativity in the lyrics if the music were creative, but it's not.

Maybe it's just me, but the song had a Binaural vibe to it.

Not bad. Maybe a faster pace might have been better? I like it but it's nothing special... if this is a song from an upcoming album then I'd like to see where and how it fits in.

Honestly I've been eagerly awaiting some more political Pearl Jam, the last two albums have been mostly bereft of politics so I'm OK if they want to get political now. I like it when Eddie gets fired up.
