From the Paper:

"Pearl Jam's frontman, Eddie Venter, has quickly become the musical voice of Generation X. His lyrics are almost always insightful and provocative, and often address important social issues. Do the Evolution is no exception to the rule, as Venter delivers a topical and pointed commentary on current status of what is arguably the most highly evolved animal on the planet: human beings."
