Oh, wow.  The new album, Backspacer.  Uplifting, consistent, melodic, hopeful, full of love and joi de vivre.  I want to write at length about the album, and I will.  But for my third Tuesday Vedder, I can think of nothing more appropriate than a song from the new album.

Amongst The Waves

What used to be a house of cards has turned into a reservoir
Saved the tears that were waterfalling
Let's go swim tonight, darling
And once outside the undertow, just you and me and nothing more
If not for love I would be drowning
I've seen it work both ways, but I am up,

Riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I have a soul that has been saved
I can feel like I put away my early grave
I gotta say it now
Better loud than too late

Remember back the early days when you were young and thus amazed?
Suddenly the channel changed the first time you saw blood
Cut to later, now you're strong, you've bled yourself, the wounds are gone
It's rare when there is nothing wrong
Survived and you're amongst the fittest, love ain't love until you give it up

Riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I have a soul that has been saved
I can see the light coming through the clouds in rays
I gotta say it now
Better loud than too late

Riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I have a soul that has been saved
I can see the light coming through the clouds in rays
I gotta say it now
Better loud than too late

I gotta say it now
I gotta say it now
I gotta say it now
Better loud than too late

    Oh, Eddie, if only he were my boyfriend.  Goodness I love his voice!  Especially on Better Man.  I've got to get this new album.
