Gigaton: The Reviews Begin

One day, Pearl Jam will trust us with an advanced copy of their albums so that we can review them for you, but until that day ... well, we'll just point you in other directions, and it looks like the reviews my cool your enthusiasm.

Consequence of Sound: B+
Stereogum: "Par for the course"
AV Club: "Ambitious, if uneven"
Guerrilla Candy: "Pearl Jam plays to its strengths instead of attempting to challenge listeners."

I'm told you could have heard similar reviews for any of their previous albums, including game changers like No Code or Yield, so read up, or wait 18 days and make your own decision.
