Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Seattle band once notable for its arena rock anthems is now remarkable mostly for its hushed melodies. On Pearl Jam's fifth album, the rockers seem slapdash ("Do the Evolution", "Brain of J"), and the arty experiments sound self-conscious (especially the 67-second knockoff, "-"). That leaves the ballads, especially the lovely lilt of "Low Light" and the clear-eyed lament of "Wishlist." On the latter song, Ed Vedder (as he now calls himself) yearns to be many different things, from a neutron bomb to a souvenir key chain. However, the line that sticks out is, "I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me." Instead of considering himself lucky to be a rock star, Vedder sounds relieved to have moved beyond it. --Keith Moerer

Review

Loud, fast and percussive, Yield finds Pearl Jam veering from its usual mix of gnashing guitars and down-in-the-mouth vocals.... The band seems to have discovered both humor and harmony.... Yield sounds at moments like a bunch of musicians having fun, a pursuit the angry young men of yore seldom indulge in.... -- People

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fun Pearl Jam album to listen to April 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Though I love "Ten" and enjoy "Vs" & "Vitalogy", this is the only Pearl Jam album that I can truly listen to from start to finish without wanting to skip over any tracks (well, except "Push Me, Pull Me").
Maybe this has to do with the fact that radio didn't overplay any of the songs on "Yield" since rap-metal and boy bands had taken over the airwaves by this time.
Or maybe "Yield" truly is more than your average Pearl Jam album. Let's compare shall we?
OK, let's start with the overall vibe of the album: In comparison to the angst-ridden recordings from the early nineties, "Yield" feels fun and loose from the very start. Listen closely and you'll hear Stone saying "1-2-3-4 1-2-3-4" in a ridiculously fast way that wouldn't really make sense to a musician. Then you have the fun bluesy jam of "Pilate", the sarcastic "Do the Evolution", the oddly funny "reddot?", and the arabic hidden track - you can just feel the band members smiling at eachother while they mess around on that one.
Included amongst the fun are classic anthem rock Pearl Jam songs like "In Hiding" and "Given To Fly", heartfelt ballads like "Wishlist" and "Low Light" and some of Eddie Vedders best vocals ever recorded. Overall, there are no weak tracks.
The production on "Yield" is also high quality when compared to their earlier albums which feel at times, dated.
Unfortunately, "Binaural" and "Riot Act" have been letdowns in comparison to this album. I felt Pearl Jam were going to take over the world again after this one.
Oh well. Maybe one day they'll look back at this and say, hey this sounds like we had fun. Let's try that again.

This is the worst PJ album ever. The only really good song on it is Brain of J. This album is very empty and worthless. it sounds like they wrote all the songs in one day. and what i can't stand are those intermissions and secret songs. they make me feel like i'm being neutered with salad tongs. please don't buy this. buy ten and no code, they're the two good ones. when i was done listening to this i just felt like i could have made a better album. there are a couple other good songs on here, but there are other ones that sound a lot like them and are stupid, so you won't really enjoy them. but if you listen to MFC or Low Light seperately you might be able to appriceate them. At least don't buy this unless your doing it to have the full pearl jam collection. maybe their rumored "sixth album" will be better. no offense to pearl jam, but this is why grunge isn't popular anymore, because all of the grunge bands are going downhill except smashing pumpkins maybe. i'm sure if Kurt was still alive grunge would be doing fine

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to form from the Alternative masters Oct. 19 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Pearl Jam looked like they were going to fade away and become the forgotten men after the buying public stopped buying the vastly under-rated 'No Code'. But all credit to Pearl Jam for produced a classic rock album for the nineties in the shape of 'Yield'. When lo-fi opener 'Brain of J' comes in with it's slashing guitars, it is a relief the band have not forgotten how write the songs that made them hugely popular on their first two albums. The next two songs 'Faithfull' (sic) and 'No Way' are the highlights of the album, recalling Led Zeppelin at their peak. The same could be said for the single 'Given To Fly' as it sounds quite similar to Led Zeppelin's 'Going To California'. Influences also shine through on the Beatles-esque 'All Those Yesterdays' which closes the album. As a whole the album is more consistent and accessible than 'Vitalogy' and 'No Code' as both contained too many weird filler tracks like 'Bugs' and 'I'm Open'. 'MFC' (standing for Many Fast Cars) is familiar Pearl Jam grunge of old while 'Pull Me Push Me' incorporates strange noise samples as Eddie Vedder recites a monologue to surprisingly good effect. Other notable songs include 'In Hiding' a stadium rock anthem while 'Do The Evolution' is the loosest and most garage-rock song the band have recorded. Pearl Jam will never be able to reach the heights of 'Ten' and 'Vs' again, but 'Yield' is their best album since the glory days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wishlist.. March 15 2009
Format:Audio CD
I wish this whole album could live up the best songs...Wishlist and Given to Fly are as good as anything Pearl Jam has ever released. Brain of J and Pilate are as bad as anything they have released. So if you don't mind just skipping to the good songs you will likely enjoy this album as overall it has more good songs than bad. Just don't look for a classic from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hugely Under-rated Aug. 31 2006
By SRM
Format:Audio CD
This is still (in 2006) the best record PJ has made since Vitalogy - maybe even better considering the album as a whole. It seems, however, that it never resonated fully with the public and some fans the way 10, Vs. and Vitalogy did because of the long layoff and more importantly, the fact its predecessor, No Code, was a commerical disappointment. This is unfortunate because Yield stands up, song for song, with their very best works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam remembers itself Sept. 30 2005
Format:Audio CD
On No Code, Pearl Jam decided to stretch their sound out, trying different textures and varieties from their previous hard-rock style. While it was an impressive in its desire, its results were less compelling. Simply put, the band put out a bad record.
With the follow-up record Yield, Pearl Jam didn't necessarily put back on their flannel grunge wear, but they did remember that it was okay to rock, as this record reminded me and probably a few others about what good hard rocking tunes this band is capable of pulling off. An example of this was at a recent concert I attended, where the Yield record produced two concert favourites in Wishlist and Given To Fly (some might argue Do The Evolution, I would not).
The quality that is shown throughout Yield is confidence as there are no Who You Are meanderings on this record. Instead the band presents its best qualities front and centre: hard-rock guitar riffs and Eddie Vedders passionate vocals, surrounded by a great rock n roll band. Songs such as Faithful and Pilot sound like previous Pearl Jam records but in new more engaging light that shows a band growing its sound without running away from itself.
It is a shame Pearl Jam didn't embrace the energy they showed they still had on Yield, as subsequent records (Binaural and Riot Act) delved into the same darker more expansive qualities on No Code, an approach that the band could not pull off.
