Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

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time, PJ's rep as a politically correct band just a little too above it all to prostitute its music on MTV has nearly superseded the music.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

Probably one of the top 20 rock albums of the past 20 years, I still consider this to be Pearl Jam's best album to date. Possibly even Pearl Jam's career defining album, which is unusual for a band to be at the absolute peak of their game on releasing their debut.

Penned and sung by Eddie Vedder, without a doubt one of rocks great vocalists, this album has a fair few of PJ's best-loved tracks.

If you're relatively new to Pearl Jam's music, I would recommend you buy either this release or their greatest hits album, 'rearviewmirror: Greatest hits 1991-2003'.

Fan favourites on this album are "Jeremy", "Alive", Even Flow" and "Black".

Some tracks I rate highly would be "Alive", "Garden", "Jeremy" and "Release".

Still, if you don't fancy buying the album, at least download some of the tracks I mentioned. You won't be dissapointed.

If you're a fan of Pearl Jam you might also like The Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Audioslave, Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots or even Nirvana. If you like this record I would highly recommend listening to 'Siamese Dream' by The Smashing Pumpkins, or 'Superunknown' by Soundgarden, which is apparently one of Eddie Vedder's favourite albums.

This is how you do a box set!

Obviously, due to the price tag, this box is not for every fan. This set is for the diehards -- the ones who try to collect all the live bootlegs, all the singles, are members of the Ten club, and go see them live every year. Or, this is for people who just want to own something monstrous and cool looking. No matter who you are, if you have the disposable income you will not be disappointed. There are some things that I was mildly disappointed with (which I shall get to in a moment) but on the whole, if you bought this, you got exactly what you wanted.

This box is packed full of goodies so numerous that I can't list them all. Needless to say, don't let the kids get into it or stuff will go missing. From Vedder's lyric book, to photos, to even a reproduction Mookie Blaylock rookie card! (Pearl Jam's original name was Mookie Blaylock in case you wondered.) Like I said, this box is loaded. It will take days to absorb all the goodies inside, all packed within a very sturdy and attractive black case. Amazon shipped this set very well packed.

To some, all that stuff is just paper and doesn't matter next to the music, and in some sense they're right. So onto the music.

This box includes the original Ten on vinyl and CD. It also includes the 2009 remixed Ten on vinyl and CD. The CD version contains 6 bonus tracks. Brendan O'Brien himself helmed the remixes. I have never been fond of the sound of Ten, until now. If you liked the remixes done for Rearviewmirror, you will like this. I have always found the original mixes too muddy and dull, now they are very bright and crisp. Dare I say it, they are heavier and more rocking.

Pearl Jam's first album Ten, released in 1991 is an epic 11 song cd raging with some of the band's biggest hits. The albums sound varies from the awesome guitar soloing in Alive, to the beautiful almost enchanting voice of Eddie Vedder on Release. Those who hate Pearl Jam and find this album garbage don't see the musical brilliance the band puts behind every song. When Eddie sing he sings like the song is apart of himself, they are so personal that you can almost feel his emotions through his lyrics, and it gives me chills evertime i heard it. A rock masterpiece.

Track Review

1. Once - the album starts with a bass intro known as Master/Slave before going into loud powerfull guitar riff. 4/5

2. Even Flow - a song about homelessness. played at almost every one of their concerts with it's momentum really gets the crowd going. 5/5

3. Alive - one of pearl jam's most famous songs. tells the story of eddie's real father, and goes into what will no doubt be Mike Mccready's greatest guitar solo. 5/5

4. Why Go - one of pearl jam's lesser known songs, but still a great one. 4/5

5. Black - my favourite song on the album. some of eddie's best lyrics. just beautiful. 5/5

6. Jeremy - the band's first single. great tune. 4.5/5

7. Oceans - great singing from eddie on this one. one of my lesser favourites on the album but it's grown on me. 4/5

8. Porch - my second favourite song on the album. really gets you going with it's fast past and blazing guitar speeds. 5/5

9. Garden - an very underrated song. doesn't get the credit it deserves 5/5

10. Deep - probably the worst song on the album, but by no means bad. 4/5

11. Release - the album ends on a high note with the brilliant singing of eddie vedder. 5/5

Buy this album! I promise you will not regret it

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.
