After the?bit disappointing album ?Try? we have here the fifth Bebo Norman album called ?Between the dreaming and the coming true?. I can surely say that this one is definitely a winner! Great melodic pop with soaring vocals of Bebo. The rootsy folkish sound of his first albums has for the most part been replaced by a modern popsound with hints of Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Downhere and John Elefante (?To find my way to you?). Collaborating on the songwriting and production with Jason Ingram this album has a new and fresh sound. I have to say that I like the ?new and improved? Bebo Norman. There are plenty of songs to enjoy on this album from uptempo poprockers to breathtaking ballads! Now get out and buy this cd and be convinced yourselves!
Pearl Jam´s first name was "Mookie Blaylock" after the All-Star basketball player, but the name was changed to "Pearl Jam" due to trademark concerns. Vocalist Eddie Vedder claimed in an early interview that the name was a reference to his great-grandmother Pearl. In 2006 guitarist Mike McCready said that bass player Jeff Ament came up with "Pearl" and that "Jam" was added after seeing Neil Young live.
