Pearl Jam's often forceful approach doesn't seem to lend itself to bedtime music, but Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Pearl Jam transforms the band's anthems and power ballads into twinkly soundtracks for naps. Relying on glockenspiel, xylophone, and other playful percussion, the songs with the strongest melodies ("Daughter," "Yellow Ledbetter," "Better Man") stand up the best to these radically different arrangements. Pearl Jam fans who are parents might prefer this to a generic collection of lullabies, and even childless fans might appreciate this for its sheer novelty value.
