Three Fish

Three Fish

In 1996, Jeff Ament, Robbi Rob and Richard Stuverud, released three fish. One of pearl jams many side projects.

This is a great album. It is a story of three fish, as the title implies. The album is lovely and mellow. The story is presented by spoken word backed by harmonious music.

One fish was intelligent, another half-intelligent, and the third, stupid, it is the story of how they survived when a fisherman came to their lake.

It is originally a poem by philosopher and poet Jelaluddin Rumi.
Rumi lived in Afghanistan in 1207 to 1273
Many of his other poems are still in circulation today. And all his poems have something to ponder on. All have a deep meaning.

Jeff Ament, Robbi Rob and Richard Stuverud, in my opinion did justice to the three fish poem.
The first time I heard the album I was hooked.
Listening to the album you can see yourself as one of the three fish, it is about life, change, and survival.

"If I get out of this,
I'll never live again in the limits of a lake.
Next time, the ocean! I'll make
the infinite my home."
