Riff: Pearl Jam – “Sirens”

Sep 18, 2013

Hear the sirens covering distance in the night/The sound echoing closer/Will they come for me next time?

from Sirens lyrics by Pearl Jam

Opposite the oi-its of “MYM,” Lightening Bolt‘s second taste goes for ballad broke, wrapping a dystopian siren metaphor around love everlasting, McCready in with the blazing rain solo on the back-end, as Vedder channels the “Better Man” that still hasn’t left him and puts the hurt on fear; [LISTEN].
