for those people who relegate thinking about pearl jam from only the "ten" days.....that was 12 fucking years ago, and only one album. 6 studio albums later, I think pearl jam have found their voice by now.

"ten", while truly a great album, was tainted for me by their god-awful image at the time, not to mention the frat-boy following they had.

I prefer them now.

Back to the subject, I personally havent been a huge fan of any of Pearl Jam's albums since Vs. Does that mean that I think their albums have sucked since then? By no means.

I dont know why I havent liked much of their stuff since then, I just havent. They've still put out quite a few songs I've liked since then, but none of them have impressed me enough to make me want to buy any of their later albums. Why? I dont know, I have no reasons for why I like or dont like groups, it just turns out that way.

At the same time, 'I Am Mine' from Pearl Jam's latest album could very well be my favorite song of theirs of all time. I'm a hypocrit.

lovin this thread...the speaking in lyrics
And for forgetting Yield...
Interesting thread though....
There will always be the "Everything after Ten sucked" people. I've come to accept that. I've been a fan since the beginning...summer of 92 was when I was hit with that huge wave called Pearl Jam. Along with U2, they are my favourite band.
What's hilarious about Ten is that...if you throw the question "What's your favourite album?" at Eddie or any other member in the band....they all agree that Ten is their LEAST favourite album. LOL. Eddie once mentioned that if given the chance, he would do that album over again.
All that said....Ten holds great sentimental value to me as it was the album that introduced me to PJ. BUT it is not my favourite album. With U2, it was October, and I love that album still to this day....some would call that album weak or whatever...but I think it is kick ass.
With each album, they have grown and found their "niche" along the way. I love them more with each successive album. Needless to say...Riot Act blew me away....the flow on that album is tremendous. Very well put together...and to think that they left off some gems like Down, Lost Soldier and Undone...well I think that says alot. Just like Radiohead, some of PJ's Bsides outshine their A sides.
So whatever. PJ isn't just about Ten. Nope. No siree. And for those who declare that PJ is about Ten and only Ten are surely missing out. There is not an album of theirs that you can write off as "it sucked". You're obviously not LISTENING. Something that is actually required for music. LOL.
You need a functioning attention span to appreciate Pearl Jam's catalogue.In fact...the attention span required has increased with each successive album. So that should explain why some people shut off anything after Ten or Vs. LOL. For some, it's all about the hard rock anthems....fook the lyrics, just gimme some geeetar. But that's not for me. I'll take the lyrics AND guitar. LOL.
Just on this tour alone I've seen them 9 times...and dammit...if you ask me...this bands gets better and better.
Pearl Jam

Everything Autumn said!! Autumn

As a matter of fact, in recently in a interview done in Mexico, I think it was Jeff that said that they felt TEN was not "them" because they had other people mix it for them.. but when VS came out it was all "PEARL JAM" and they felt that it was who they were.

TEN is a great album but it' s not my favorite! My fav is YIELD *Shame on you forgetting it!* hehehe

I've come across those "Everything after 10 is crap" people! I just ignore them, because like Autumn said they they are probably looking for the guitar! Or they don't bother to listen to the material after TEN. Eddie's lyrics just seem to get better and more profound throught out the years! And I'm all about the over-all aspect ... lyrics, "geetar" lol et et.

They didn't want to be "Rock stars" and I respect that, they have shown that they are all about the music! After all the MUSIC is what counts! Well, at least to me!

And RIOT ACT is awesome! I think it's easily becoming my second fav album!!
