Product Description


Part of the '90s Seattle grunge triumvirate completed by Nirvana and Soundgarden, Pearl Jam debuted with Ten, their most accessible, least self-conscious album. Over time, PJ's rep as a politically correct band just a little too above it all to prostitute its music on MTV has nearly superseded the music. But before that, they were a simply an in-your-face, in-your-head, loud, melodic rock band. And lead singer Eddie Vedder was known for his possessed stage presence and a primal growl that sounded like it required three vocal chords. The personal, narrative singles "Alive," "Jeremy," and "Even Flow" catapulted the reluctant band into the 10-million-plus-sales division. Subsequent albums are more intricate, subtle, thematically complex, and, in many ways, better than Ten. But the band may never repeat the stampede caused by this debut. --Beth Bessmer

5.0 out of 5 stars The essential Pearl Jam album July 14 2004
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
Pearl Jam's debut CD 'Ten' is one of my all time favourite albums of all time. It's now a classic 90s album, the perfect addition to anyone's alternative collection.
Once / a perfect opener, a great song to show us what Pearl Jam is all about.
Even Flow / I usually don't like singles ... except Pearl Jam singles.
Alive / a sad song, based on Eddie's childhood.
Why Go / an angry song, I love this one.
Black / a slower song, beautiful lyrically and one of the best vocally by Vedder. The ending is actually haunting: 'I know you'll be a sun in someone else's sky but why, why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine?'
Jeremy / Pearl Jam's widely known song, about violence, based on true events.
Oceans / another slower song, probably their weakest song but still very good.
Porch / the beginning should tell you everything, this song is angry.
Garden / yet another slower one, perfect. It was one of my favourites at one time, nice repeating lyrics at the beginning and end.
Deep / though I love this song, it's my least favourite on the album, yet it's still musically well done.
Release / the closing song (not including the "secret song"), a very beautifully crafted song with stunning lyrics.
In all, this is a very good album, good anytime and it's the perfect CD to start off your Pearl Jam collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect album? July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Pearl Jam's storied debut is probably the first "perfect" album since, well...I don't when. The only other "perfect" record that comes to mind is The Beatles' "Revolver"...I'm sure other individuals could name additional potentially immaculate LP's, but rarely has such a confluence of critical and commercial acclaim been afforded an album before or since "Ten"'s release. Each track exudes glorious melody, songwriting, production value, and accessibility, without kowtowing to apparent influences and besmirching credibility. In turn, each track seemingly spawned (or compelled record companies to sign) three or four other bands, some of which were quite respectable, and others which wore out their welcome after one single. Many of these groups pop up even to this day, which is a testament to "Ten"'s long-term impact on the rock and roll landscape.
Pearl Jam was led by Eddie Vedder's screeching, howling vocals, unrivaled in both exertion, originality, and future influence, unless you throw Robert Plant in the mix. Behind him was the underrated guitar work of Mike McCready and Stone Gossard, the latter of which was a member of the first grunge band, Green River. Bassist Jeff Ament, also a former member of Green River, joined with drummer Dave Krusen to form a complimentary, but significantly dynamic, rhythm section to drive a sound that was equal parts 70's arena and 80's alt-indie, which previously had not been combined to such startling effect.
The end result was an album that helped destroy then-current conventions of rock and roll, led by glam-influenced, hair-metal artists, and create a relatively new sound and style which remain a fascinating characterization of the 90's pop culture aesthetic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overrated, but still good June 28 2004
By Lauren
Format:Audio CD
I bought "Ten" last year when I decided to give Pearl Jam a try and it was the only one of their CDs in the store at the time. My first impression of it was that it was a bit monotonous, and the songs seemed to be overly long and melodramatic. When I bought "Vitalogy," "Ten" was quickly thrown aside in favor of the former. However, a few months ago, I came back to this and I was pleasantly surprised. I still maintain that it's not the masterpiece that people claim it is, and that Pearl Jam went on to do much better things, but it's a very good debut.
The album begins with a snippet of "Master/Slave," a Pink Floyd-esque ditty that flows into "Once," the second song in a trilogy about a boy who kills his mother. It's a very good song. Next is "Even Flow," a song that I once thought was good but I can now barely listen to due to the overplay on the radio (yes, even today it's overplayed). Third is "Alive," the first in the trilogy and easily one of the best in Pearl Jam's catalogue, even though it suffers from people misinterpreting it as a life-affirming anthem. Next comes "Why Go," a so-so song about a girl whose parents send her to a mental institute. That flows into "Black," a beautiful, reflective song that I would call the album's highlight. Then comes "Jeremy" -- everyone knows about that one. It's a good song that, in my opinion, was only catapulted to "great" status because of the admittedly excellent video. The seventh track, "Oceans," is another slower song that is good but not up to the standards of "Black." Next comes "Porch," an up-tempo song that definitely gets the blood pumping. "Garden" is my least favorite song on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow this is incredible!! June 16 2004
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album to come out of the grunge era sure nirvana's nevermind was probably more popular but it didnt sound as amazing as this cd did. It starts out with once a great rockin intro to start the journey. Next comes the classic even flow which everyone has heard eddies vocals are top notch on this song. After that comes the best song on the cd and of the whole grunge period, alive. Wow wut an amazing song. It has deep personal lyrics and the best damn guitar solo ive heard since led zeppelins stairway to heaven. After that comes another great rocker why go and then the deep and emotional black, probably the best ballad they have ever done. Then comes the second best song on the cd, the classic jeremy about a young boy who commited suicide in front of this classmates. Then comes in the tranquility of oceans which is a great slow tempo song. Porches is another hard rock fast tempo song with an awesome guitar solo. Garden is next, which also features another great guitar solo, damn i love these solos!! Deep is a great song that captures eddies amazing vocals on here. And finally we come to ballad number two release which is a great way to end the cd. Well there u have it. The greatest cd to come out of the grunge period and possibly of the 90s. I recommend this for any hard rock fan period young or old.
