Product Notes

Taking a break from his day job fronting rock heavyweight Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder immerses himself into the big-screen story of a young man who gives all his money to charity and hitchhikes to a new life--and his eventual death--in the wilds of Alaska. Prompted by the film's creator, Sean Penn, to contribute to the musical score, the Seattle musician tackled the entire project, playing every instrument on the soundtrack's nine original and two cover songs. Vedder contemplates the traveler "setting forth in the universe" in the opener "Setting Forth," then tracks in the remaining songs the realizations and disillusionments that follow. A wish comes true in banjo-plucked "No Ceiling" to "up and disappear," while affluence is questioned on the hard-rocking "Far Behind," with Vedder singing, "Empty pockets will/Allow a greater sense of wealth." No song in the album's first half exceeds two-and-a-half minutes, remedied by Vedder's pertinent five-minute stamp on the remake of Indio's "Hard Sun," complete with eerie backing vocals by Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker. The songwriter puts wealth on the hot seat in "Society," questioning, "If less is more/How you keepin' score?" The darkly sung folk song bookends the reticent declaration "Guaranteed," wonderfully delivered and quietly strummed, in which the prodigal Vedder wraps the journey in one line: "Leave it to me as I find a way to be/Consider me a satellite forever orbiting." (The record is packaged like a hardcover book, with vivid photography and lyrics.) --Scott Holter

TOWER.COM REVIEW

Eddie Vedder – Into The Wild Soundtrack

Eddie Vedder comes away from his vast existence as the baritone grill for the Pearl Jam smile, long enough to create the folk musical splash for Sean Penn’s picture perfect film Into the Wild”.

In 1991 Vedder released “Ten” and turned 27 years old, while not too far away Christopher McCandless, a confused youth in search for clarity and understanding, took to the road for answers. Seventeen years later Sean Penn brings McCandless’ story to the silver screen along with Vedder’s solo folk soundtrack.

There’s a sense of contemplation on the Into the Wild Soundtrack that lends to the road warrior philosopher image conveyed in the film. The tracks are contagiously thought provoking, however unobtrusive, maintaining the ability to provide perfectly for a thinker’s film. If you were looking for the opportunity to witness good ol’Ed a little more concentrated, then this release will do the trick as the grunger calmly walks, Into the Wild.

Favorite: “Long Nights”, “Setting Forth”, “The Wolf”

I bought this after seeing the film starring Sean Penn, but did not know what to expect from an entire album from Eddie Vedder. Fortunately I was surprised by the outcome. Almost entirely acoustic mixed with a more cinematic cross reference... well worth the listen and support.
