You don't often see "sequels" to live albums (KISS' Alive series comes to mind), but Live on Ten Legs is very much a belated sequel to Pearl Jam's Live on Two Legs, their first live release from 1998. It's careful not to repeat any songs from its predecessor, and even plugs in the few bigger hits notably absent the first time around, including "Jeremy", "Alive" and concert staple "Yellow Ledbetter". Of course a lot has changed since 1998, and the band's extensive collection of "official bootlegs" released over the years between CD and digital download is likely to make this single-disc offering look paltry by comparison. However there's real appeal here, particularly for casual fans who prefer a singles and hits-heavy live collection, but also for those who take comfort in knowing that a single-disc live collection, culled from several tours, usually means that only the best performances were chosen.
