Just thought I'd add that little tidbit of Sam Trivia. Chris Cornell's voice is awesome indeed, what a great scream, and when dual-tracked with him screaming very faintly in the back, such as in "Mailman" it's a hell of an effect. SuperUnknown I would say is my favorite cd by them, favorite tracks are the aofrmentioned "Mailman" and "4th of July". SuperUnknown is one of those rare cds in which every.single.song.is.good.

I agree about Vedder: I used to love Pearl Jam and I thought Stone Gossard was a fine songwriter but since Vedder's bloated ego took over the band isnt the same anymore, I cant stand the man's obsession with politics, saving the whale, the rainforest, abortion, etc. Who gives a fuck, really ? Ironically, the album Lost Dogs, which is a collection of B sides and leftovers — left over by the prima donna Vedder — contains some of the band's best stuff.
Oh and Superunknown is fantastic.
