My top studios from PJ:

1- No Code
2- Vs.
3- Ten
4- Yield
5- Vitalogy
6- Riot Act
7- Pearl Jam
8- Binaural


I like all of PJ's albums. This is simply the order in which I like them.

Binaural > Vitalogy? Good God, it's probably their worst.

I just never really could get into Pearl Jam's later work. Ten is all kinds of fucking amazing, overexposed or not.

Yeah, I've probably had the toughest time getting into Binaural. But there was a clear point about it picking up after you get past the first few tracks, and i need to give it another chance.

I kind of feel the other way. I like Binaural. It is dark and moody. Whereas (this might be heracy) but in the year 2009, I find Ten hard to listen to. It sounds cheesy to me.

It is similar to my 'relationship' with U2 thesedays. So much has changed and it is hard to go back to the basic sounds of Boy and remember how good it really was in context. For me, the context that was there when Ten first came out is long since gone and somehow despite those songs being great I find it hard to listen to.

It might just be that FM radio are guilty of way overplaying those Ten songs. Over exposure.

^^^ I agree with this, too. Ten is overproduced, and seriously dated, despite having some great songs, some of which have been way overplayed.

Yeah. It's an improvement, but not as much as I was expecting.

You see, for the longest time I disliked Vitalogy but for a couple songs. Some of the low points to that album are really low whereas the highs were at that of the earlier material, but not as consistently. Binaural I fell in love with upon first listen.

This.

I still love it, but it is dated from a production standpoint for sure. And the remix/remaster is great and all, but it could have been better.

Yeah, Ten has dated badly, but a good song is a good song.

That's why it's still second in my ranking.

You know what...I may have been a little off with that comment. RVM, Indifference, and maybe even Dissident and Elderly Woman to an extent have emotional depth. But as a whole, I still feel that Vs. doesn't pack close to the emotional punch of, say, No Code. Now, if I just wanted an album to rock the fuck out to, Vs. would be a good choice.

The first three tracks on Binaural don't do much for me yet. But the five that follow it make up what I think is as strong of a five song run PJ has ever put on record, and the end of the record is pretty good as well, especially the closer, Parting Ways.

That said, I'm listening to Vitalogy right now, and when it's good, it's really, really good, and I could almost put it above Binaural, if only Last Exit, Tremor Christ, Nothingman, Courdroy, Better Man, and Immortality had more surrounding them. BTW, am I missing something with Spin The Black Circle? Its on the RVM compilation, which implies that it's one of PJ's best, but I can't get into it.

Anyway, no way is Binaural their worst...LM, you really think it's worse than even Avocado?

I haven't listened to the whole Ten remaster, but are the mixes of Once, Alive, Even Flow, Jeremy, and Black the same as those on the RVM compilation? Because for those songs, especially Black and Even Flow, I listen to the RVM versions much more than the Ten versions. I think they're better versions.

Also, regarding Ten, does any agree that Oceans is one of the most gorgeous ballads PJ has ever written?

It was the first single released from the album, along with Tremor Christ, so that's the main reason.

Spin The Black Circle is probably the album's worst song. It came off as a WE R PUNK 2!! desperation move to be honest. Okay, you're not corporate rock whores, you're into vinyl, we get it. Can we have some songs now please?

Satan's Bed is kind of lame too.
