I'm not sure about Pearl Jam...

Apparently they are supposed to be a big thing, but listening to their Best Of CD, I have to say that I don't understand why they are being praised so much.

What is it that makes Pearl Jam such a hit among some people?

Why do some people like U2 while others loathe them.
Why do some like Eminem and others don't.
Why does anyone like K-Fed?

There is a reason they make chocolate and vanilla.

Good question, does anyone openly say they like K-Fed?

I'd like to know this as well, I was a big fan in High School and really enjoyed Ten and Vs but after that my interest fell off.

I was in a used CD store the other day and they had a copy of their newest CD (the one with the avacado on the cover) and I wasn't really impressed when I listened to it.

I dunno, not my thing I guess.

an incredible catalogue of songs, amazing technical musical ability, a great front man with an instantly recognizable voice, undeniable loyalty to their core fan base and one of the best live acts in the world.

other than that, not much.

but again... as hewson put it... there's a reason why they make chocolate and vanilla. different strokes for different folks.

Well put.

Vedder's voice makes the band for me!

If you need the people on this board to convince you to like Pearl Jam, then Pearl Jam is not for you.

Move along

Agreed. Why post a thread that's designed to slag a group? Come up with a better thread.
Next.

Pearl Jam is an incredibly over-rated band.

I really haven't liked anything they put out since Ten, other a good tune here and there. They do, however, put on great live shows, and they stay out of the music industry bullshit that most bands get sucked into. They'll always have my respect.

Does anyone here remember the Seattle Scene back in the early 90's? It featured bands like Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, this little band called Nirvana, Mudhoney, Pearl Jam and some others I've forgotten. Anyway, out of all of them, Pearl Jam is still rocking.
