LONG ROAD Pearl Jam and the Soundtrack of a Generation

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ron Hippe

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Emerging in the 1990s and still relevant today, Pearl Jam's music resonates with hipsters and discerning fans of grunge, alternative, and message-oriented rock music. Their story, told here by an insightful music journalist, is given enormous appeal by narrator Ron Hippe. Pearl Jam's success has been full of dramatic fluctuations and contradictions. Hippe captures every nuance with his wide vocal range and audible connection with these musicians and their music. The dynamics among band members, the media, fans, and commercial interests offer a fascinating study of how pop bands navigate the spoils and pitfalls of professional music. Ron Hippe's vocal enthusiasm and engagement with this story are exceptional, making this a must-hear for Pearl Jam fans and others. T.W.
