Well, this is it Pearl Jam fans. After making it through four years of waiting since the band's last studio album, and a ninety day countdown since the album was first annouced, release day is finally here - 'Lightning Bolt ' hits stores today! Some of you fans out there may have already heard the album, considering the band made it available on iTunes for free streaming this past week. I've listened to a few of the songs myself, and of course very much love what I've heard thus far. I cannot wait to get out to my local record store today though, to pick up my own copy, to hold it in my hands, to have that first full listen through from beginning to end. It's going to be a great day. You be sure to get out there and get your copy too!
