Ed­die Ved­der

Into The Wild J Records, 2007

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff Buyer's Guide -

All four of Pearl Jam’s noughties al­bums were good, but none were out­stand­ing. And none came close to Ved­der’s de­but solo record.

The stripped-back sound­track to the man­ver­sus-na­ture film Into The Wild, it mir­rored the un­tamed beauty of the film’s Alaskan set­ting per­fectly. Ved­der played the ma­jor­ity of the in­stru­ments him­self, adding to the sense of iso­la­tion.

Far Be­hind and the gleam­ing Hard Sun came on like a windswept Pearl Jam, but the del­i­cate Rise and The Wolf had a panoramic grace that was all their own.
