Happy 20th to the Singles Soundtrack

Stereogum reminds us, that twenty years ago, the soundtrack that opened Seattle up to the masses graced us with its presence.  Thank you, Mr. Crowe.
“State Of Love And Trust” is PJ at their absolute best — roaring on all cylinders, with a ferocious vocal from Eddie Vedder and a monster chorus. It’s been a fan favorite for two decades, with good reason. It was written by Vedder, Ament and Mike McCready (where most PJ songs at that stage featured Gossard among the credits) and recorded during the same sessions as “Breath.”
