I remember vividly meeting my mother in our drive way, as we both arrived home at the same time, the day it came out on CD. I had asked her to pick it up for me while she was downtown. I locked myself in my room and put it on repeat, just laying there with my headphones and studying the album art. Changed my life.

My mother drove me to the midnight sale. My best friend had his mother drive him to the midnight sale. Picked up a cassette and the CD because i dont think this van had a cd player in it at the time. Listened to it on the way home and all night. Brought the cd and my discman to school the next day and listened to it at my locker any chance i could

I was blown away by side 1, but quickly became pretty irritated at the side 2 nonsense...

Ah, to be young, stupid, and impatient again :lol:

It was what made me want to work in audio. I had never been so fascinated by sound before. I wanted to crawl inside my headphones and understand why things sounded the way they did. I spent just shy of 20 years trying to figure it out.

It is a damn good recording! I gave up on the recording process when pro tools and digital looping made it easy for everyone. Same with digital photography... two lost art forms due to the digital age.

Yep. I worked in a photo lab in high school, and did a lot of dark room stuff; and eventually purchased a 2" tape machine for about $5K. Neither of those investments of my time or money amounted to a hill of beans in the long run.

Nothing so nerve wracking as splicing 2" tape with a razorblade and scotch tape!

My brother gave me this album for my birthday. He was probably 12 at the time, so spending $15 was a big deal to him. And he picked it out all on his own without me saying anything. It'll always be special to me for that reason alone.

My mom took me to the mall to buy this record. Then she took me out for ice cream. This was a few weeks after the record had already dropped (after Thanksgiving and into December). I thought it was really cool of her to buy me the CD and then some food. Turns out it was just to butter me up because she'd found out I was sexually active and wanted me off my guard when she asked me about it. Long story, short... I didn't like the memories associated with Vitalogy and didn't like this album for a long, long time.

Now I fucking love it. It's probably my second favorite album of all time. But it took a while to get into it.

New Pearl Jam album, ice cream, and a talk about sex with your mom. Sounds like a great day and a great mom.

Speaking of moms: Mine came home one day with two tapes apropos of nothing. She said, "Do you like the bands Toe Jam and Meatballs?" She had brought home Vs. and Bat Out of Hell 2. No sex talk, that was a few months later.

I haven't set foot in a Baskin Robbins since.

I bought the CD and listened to it and then I probably played with myself and ate some Totino's pizza rolls.
