Ok, here's the deal, i'm going on a shopping spree for new cd's and i want to get a another PJ albums.
I've got, Ten, No Code, Vitalogy and Verses. What other one should i get if i was to get one?
Please, good suggestions, i'm trusting your taste!

I love rock Pearl Jam but have recently found my self prefering their slower songs. Any ideas?

Yield

either that or get the double disc "Lost Dogs" of b sides, etc.
the second disc has a lot of good slower numbers.

Pearl Jam - the best band of the 90's
Tell me which band has the balls to go from mainstream, but amazing rock and roll records like Ten and Vs. to beautiful experimental landscapes of No Code?
Riot Act is a great record for me. Save You, Love Boat Captain, All Or None are easily one of the best things they have ever done.

And I don't even have to start ranting how good they are live...

frankly i think pearl jam purposely released songs that sound better live than the studio versions.

Wrong-O!!!

Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers




Check out the song titles on this record alone! Chainsaw Earle, Ladies in The Centre, Carry Me Home To Me Granny's, Me Car, The Pits...Rum Ri Row

I actually thought Eddie would do a fabulous job with Salt Water Joys (my favourite) when PJ came to St. John's last fall. My uncle manages this band, if anyone is interested in tickets, shirts, etc.

Man... No Code is definitely a grower I think. I just got it for dead cheap online, listened to it once, did not find it special at all... but the second time round, I like Hail Hail, Who You Are, In My Tree and Off He Goes. Still listening to it and I can't stand Lukin.

If you don't have it already you so need YIELD, one of their best albums, dare I say their best! Of course just my opinion.

I agree. If you have Ten, Versus and Vitalogy, I'd definitely without a question go for Yield!!!

If you haven't already tried, check it out on headphones. It's their least "noisy" album, and really calls for an intimate setting. Stuff like "I'm Open" and "Present Tense" will really blow you away once you give yourself over to them. Glad you like In My Tree, one of their all-time greatest tracks. Probably the closest they've come to U2.

And a big thumbs up to Stone Gossard singing on Mankind. Should have been a hit single.

Lukin's not a great song by any stretch of the imagination, but it's like, what, a minute long? Take a piss break.

What about that fuzzy Hendrix-style guitar on Red Mosquito? How amazing is that? Smile and Off He Goes show that they were taking good notes when playing/recording with Neil Young. Love the harmonica and the outro solo on Smile. And that beautiful lullaby to close the album?

Can't get enough of No Code.

Lukin is one of the highlights of No Code.

Riot Act is a great album. I'd definitely buy either that one or Yield. (rather Riot Act )

Not to throw this thread off a complete tangent or to incite yet another comparison war (of which we already have far too many on this forum nowadays), but... erm... Radiohead?
And to go back a few years more and out of the strict rock 'n' roll idiom, but Talk Talk also went way out after their initial, mainstream-like albums.
And of course, we shouldn't forget U2 with Zooropa (, Original Soundtracks 1) and Pop.

Yeah, I figured it probably sounds better on headphones! Maybe over the weekend I'll give it another listen.

You were right! I'm in love with this album. I listen to it on a daily basis. Whether it's the sing along chant of Who You Are, the winding melody of Off He Goes, the delicious fuzzy guitar of Red Mosquito, the almost REM-ish Mankind, the soul-searching and spirituality of Present Tense and I'm Open or the beautiful, peaceful and perfect ending of Around The Bend... this is great stuff! To think I got it online for like 3 bucks w/ shipping!
