Overview:
---------------
Nirvana's Nevermind may have been the album that broke grunge and alternative rock into the mainstream, but there's no underestimating the role that Pearl Jam's Ten played in keeping them there. Nirvana's appeal may have been huge, but it wasn't universal; rock radio still viewed them as too raw and punky, and some hard rock fans dismissed them as weird misfits. In retrospect, it's easy to see why Pearl Jam clicked with a mass audience -- they weren't as metallic as Alice in Chains or Soundgarden, and of Seattle's Big Four, their sound owed the greatest debt to classic rock. With its intricately arranged guitar textures and expansive harmonic vocabulary, Ten especially recalled Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. But those touchstones might not have been immediately apparent, since -- aside from Mike McCready's Clapton/Hendrix-style leads -- every trace of blues influence has been completely stripped from the band's sound. Though they rock hard, Pearl Jam is too anti-star to swagger, too self-aware to puncture the album's air of gravity. Pearl Jam tackles weighty topics -- abortion, homelessness, childhood traumas, gun violence, rigorous introspection -- with an earnest zeal unmatched since mid-'80s U2, whose anthemic sound they frequently strive for. Similarly, Eddie Vedder's impressionistic lyrics often make their greatest impact through the passionate commitment of his delivery rather than concrete meaning. His voice had a highly distinctive timbre that perfectly fit the album's warm, rich sound, and that's part of the key -- no matter how cathartic Ten's tersely titled songs got, they were never abrasive enough to affect the album's accessibility. Ten also benefited from a long gestation period, during which the band honed the material into this tightly focused form; the result is a flawlessly crafted hard rock masterpiece.

Quality album.

What's the remixed version like? I think the original's pretty special as is, surely it can't be better?

Already have the 'original' but for this price, you can't go wrong!
HOT HOT HOT!

It's really punchy and in some places you hear extra backing vocals that have been brought out in the mix. If you're a fan of the original you will love it. I only keep the remix version on my iPod now. Bonus tracks aren't all that. There are better versions of most of them.

Superb album. I'm going to see them again in Hyde Park in June

Me too, amazing band!

Voted hot

bought this when it was first released fo a lot more...hot!!

Love the band, but always hated how over-produced ten was. Might give this a go.

It's more subtle changes than a huge overhaul, as someone above says you hear a few different sounds you don't on the original mix.

Have the original (plus every other album except for backspacer) but ordered this.

I absolutely hate the self titled album though so I boycotted Backspacer as I heard they are continuing on the same path from the self titled.

without eddie vedder they would be nothing

it's a better sound overall than the original mix - much less reveb and some of the backing has been brought forward.
Good album but IMHO the 3 disc version is a better buy if you can find it at a comparable price - you get the unplugged DVD then too. This is still a great buy if you're not bothered about that though.
A couple of the bonus tracks can be found in another form on the Singles soundtrack album - the remaining ones were nothing to write home about IIRC

The self titled album is quite bad...Backspacer really rocks, if you like Yield you may like Backspacer as well

Backspacer's not bad - Johnny Guitar and Got Some are worth hearing.

Just Breathe and The End are absolutely beautiful too. Some of the best lighter songs they've ever done, I think.

Straight after posting that I went on to LastFM and listened to a good few tracks from Backspacer. It feels as gutless as the self titled to be honest. That was only one listen per track though so I haven't written it off yet...

I do like Yield a lot, or rather I love the several stand-out tracks

Me three!!!!

Amazing to think this originally came out 21years ago still remember sittting down leigh seafront trying to work out what eddie was singing about, could feel the words but didnt quite understand em

Not my intention, though grunge is my favourite genre and like i said 'in my honest opinion' but nones forced to agree. And pearl jam are stlll an awesome band, such was the strength of the grunge scene.

Mudhoney - 5th? maybe i'd agree but i also liked candlebox

Ah, I thought you were suggesting they were a poor 4th/not worth bothering with because of the other 3 rather than you being an all-out grunge fan.

There's so much negativity in every single thread here you help but just assume the worst! :w00t:

Quality CD and Band

H+R

sounds like they have autotuned the vocals on the "remix"
