Mad World: Strung Out on Pearl Jam: A String Quartet Tribute$13.98
Release Date: 4/25/2006
Strung Out on Pearl Jam is as uncompromising as the band it honors. From car radio speakers to arenas across the world, the sound of Pearl Jam is voluminous. But when guitars and Eddie Vedder’s muscular voice are replaced by violins, viola, and cello, the resulting music is simply majestic. “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town” becomes cinematic in scope and poignancy. “Better Man” transforms into a subtle, nuanced portrait. Strung Out on Pearl Jam is an anomaly of good music.
