As the "peoples band" that they are, Pearl Jam have made something like 5000 live albums. Okay, I admit that I am somewhat exaggerating here — but only a little. Their catalog speaks for itself.
Pearl Jam's live recordings in just the past decade have included at least two "bootleg series" of entire tours, as well as a couple of "boutique" sort-of live albums recorded right here in their hometown (as well as my own) of Seattle. Those would include the acoustic set recorded at Benaroya Hall, as well as in the "intimate setting" captured live just up the street from my house, at the local record store Easy Street. So, this is a somewhat "fan-friendly" band.
Most recently, they put out a great boxed set of shows recorded Live At the Gorge in eastern Washington that they made into a 7 disc boxed set. Okay, so maybe I'm spoiled.
I mean, let's face it; Pearl Jam haven't really sold records in any massive numbers since their debut album, Ten, but what makes them such an enduring, and great band, is the fact that they kick major ass in a live show. Personally, what I like about Pearl Jam — other than the fact that they champion good causes, and generally seem to be legitimately nice guys — is the fact that they still know how to rock.
So you may still ask, what makes this DVD any different than the half a dozen others which capture Pearl Jam in concert? Well for one thing, this one is done a little differently. Pearl Jam's Immagine in Cornice: Picture in a Frame is shot like an actual documentary. It follows the band on a 2006 tour of Italy. The music is still very much front and center, and there is plenty of it.
