The sound of the band was appreciably different once Jack joined too, though that's not the only factor.

Songs like Hail, Hail or Brain of J. are still rock music but they're of a markedly different character to the bombastic material on the earlier records; with Jack behind the kit, they managed to be simultaneously more garage-like and more cerebral.

I agree with this. I prefer Dave A's drumming but I concur, Spenno.

I like Dave's drumming too, as well as the earlier Dave's on Ten.

I agree with ths as well. I think it is interesting to note that Ed's music is more garage like and cerebal than Stone and Jeff's.

I don't at all agree that Ed's music is more cerebral than Stone or Jeff's.

Stone's riffs have a very tight feel, almost metronomic and Dave A locked in with that beautifully. Ed is a bit more fluid and loose which Jack fit in with more.

Of course that's a generalisation.

Are there any versions of the reissued Ten vinyl that include Breath, SOLAT, and 2000 Miles? Or are those just found on the cd versions?

Was driving around yesterday and Alive came on the radio. Normally, I would immediately turn the channel, only b/c I've heard it a billion times by now.

But something in me decided to turn it the fuck up instead. I was struck by how heavy everything sounds, in a good way. One of the tracks on Ten where the production really does it a favor. The guitars sound like they're falling down on you from above.

And that outro - hoo boy. Absolutely what got me hooked on the band in the first place. Krusen is murdering it and McCready's solo is a perfectly sequenced hurricane :bammer: .

Listening to it with fresh ears made me realize it's a tough song to pin down, genre-wise. It's got a classic rock sound to it, mostly because of the giant riff and soaring chorus. But the energy in the playing makes it sound so vital and current, even 25 years later. I guess the only band I could relate it to would be The Who, but they never really did riff-rock like this.

To this day, it's one of the classics that I don't tire of in concert b/c of that energy. Betterman and Daughter and Even Flow could all be retired, and I'd be fine with that. But Alive is still... alive after all these years. *sad trombone*

If anyone is wanting the vinyl reissue of Ten, it's $16.88 on Amazon right now. Great price.

Listening to Ten right now, about half way through Even Flow. I'm kinda bored already. First thought, when Once started, was that the guitars don't sound that great.

Shredding guitar and soaring vocals. Zzzzz.... Man, I used to LOVE this album. Why Go is starting. I think I might enjoy it more than the first 3.

I agree, I still really like Ten. I don't know how old Leatherhead is, but it's an interesting thought how a lot of people around 30-40 probably really hated or didn't "get" Pearl Jam when they first hit the scene.

I'm 28. Started listening to PJ at about 17, I think. Ten was an easy favorite for quite a while.
