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.

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.

(Actual Rating-3.5 Stars)
Yield(1998). Pearl Jam's Fifth Album.
Throughout the 90's, Pearl Jam was, and still is, an Enigma. Unlike other bands, they despised the spotlight, yet their albums, and the songs off them, became more popular than they could ever imagine. 'Ten', 'Vs.', and 'Vitalogy' were Bona-Fide Grunge classics, and Pearl Jam, instead of embracing their popularity, tried to destroy it. They experimented with New Age in 'No Code', and it was a commercial and critical failure. Then Pearl Jam became embroiled in a Legal battle with Ticketmaster, which put them on hold. So, in an attempt to win back the fans and the critics, Pearl Jam made and produced 'Yield', where they got back to the bare bones of their Early Grunge Days, blending genuine Hard Rock, Punk, and Mellower songs. So, is 'Yield' as good as the Big 3, or is it just another 'No Code' Disaster? Read On To Find Out....
Track Listing-
Brain of J- An ode to JFK, "Brain of J" starts 'Yield'off well as Gossard's Black Sabbath-y riff blows out the speakers, and Vedder's questioning vocals echo throughout the room. A Great Rocker, and Gossard/McCready's Guitar Work is amazing!
Faithfull- Pearl Jam softens up for "Faithfull", focusing on Vedder's vocal talents, but Gossard/McCready(I'll refer too them as the duo from here on out) shell out riffs and solos that make this "Ballad" an intense rocker.
No Way-"No Way" blends Psychadelic Rock with Funk, and by mixing in Vedder's soft-spoken vocals, and "The Duo"'s bluesly guitarwork makes this an interesting experiment.
Given To Fly- "Given To Fly" is a "Pearl Jam" Ballad, which means it can go from Vedder calmly belting out lyrics behind mellow guitars, to him screaming out the chorus behind "The Duo's" chugging guitar. "Given To Fly" is no exception!

5.0 out of 5 stars We're Faithfull.... July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Been years since I purchased this. Brilliant album art.
I wasnt really big on "Brain of J" until recently after completing a few hundred listens of Yield."Faithfull"starts and you hear the most beautiful discreet sound of guitarring And then Eddie's mindblowing lyrics "Plaque on the wall says that no one's slept here/t's rare to come upon a bridge that has not been around/Or Been Stepped On..." What follows is a brilliant power punch of a song that really brings delight and joy to me.
"No Way" is brutally addictive with its lyrics for an insatiable desire for a love one wants. "Given to fly" tests you.....its out there. "Wishlist" was my favourite track on the disc for the first few dozen times. "Do The Evolution" is something that shocked me. Its amazing how this band can be so unpredictable.
Then follows the last few tracks....which are truly the best. "In Hiding" reminds you of the times in your life when you're alone and maybe still are. It truly speaks to my soul and has this amazing ability to leave me expressionless totally overwhelmed. The last track on the disc "All Those Yesterdays" is certainly something the album needed to make it a truly unforgettable experience. Its the perfect full stop. The vibe around the song just raptures me into emotional shockwaves , the kind that words seldom express. Pearl Jam have been my favourite band for a while now and this just might be an album which is not bound by time. It holds its own. It will last forever. Pearl Jam will last forever.
