PEARL JAM – Their Debut Album ‘TEN’ Turned 30

Back in time

29 August 2021

Band: PEARL JAM (Seattle)
Active: 1990-present / 11 studio albums

Anniversary album: TEN
Released: 27 August 1991 – 30 years ago today

Rolling Stone: “Pearl Jam hurtles into the mystic at warp speed.
They wring a lot of drama out of a few declarative power chords
swimming in echo.”

Turn Up The Volume: The little bombastic brothers of Nirvana had
to fight to be recognized with their big brothers around. Their debut was
not their best LP, in my grunge book, but (already) showed Eddie Vedder‘s
huge talent as a frontman and songwriter and the single ‘Alive’ still is a
mammoth of a striking song.

Singles/clips: Alive / Even Flow

Grunge Heroes PEARL JAM Released Their Avocado Album 15 Years Ago Today

2 May 2021

Band: PEARL JAM (Seattle)
Active: Since 1990 / 11 albums so far

Album: PEARL JAM – Also referred to as
The Avocado Album or simply Avocado
The band’s 8th LP

Released: 2 May 2006 – 15 years ago today

Stereogum wrote: “Pearl Jam is the first real sign of life from the band
since ‘No Code’, although I maintain that it’s not as good as its reputation…
But Pearl Jam sounds crisp and lively throughout, and some songs here —
amely “Unemployable” — rank with the band’s best, and more importantly,
don’t sound like they’re trying to reinvent Ten or Vs. They’re just strong, catchy,
upbeat tunes. Yes, from Pearl Jam!”

Turn Up The Volume: Always an aural pleasure to hear Eddie Vedder
giving it all, with heart and soul and inexhaustible vitality. But it’s the
Jam by numbers. Too average for these grunge heroes.

PEARL JAM Had (New) Song ‘GET IT BACK’ Available For Only 24 Hours…

New sonic impulses

4 October 2020

Grunge icons PEARL JAM had one of their songs featured on the second
volume of Good Music To Avert The Collapse Of American Democracy,
available for only one day last Friday.

It’s unclear if GET IT BACK is a new song or a track coming from the
Gigaton sessions (their first album in 7 years released early this year).
Anyway it was only available on that compilation on Bandcamp last
Friday for 24 hours, 2 October.

Don’t hear it here…

One Live Track A Day Keeps The Doctor Away – Here’s PEARL JAM

Last night – 24 June – several Seattle bands like Sleater-Kinney, Ben Gibbard, Brandi Carlile, The Head And The Heart, Macklemore, and Sir Mix-A-Lot played a virtual benefit concert for All In WA to raise money for Washington state’s COVID-19 relief effort.

Headliner was PEARL JAM. From their separate homes the band played DANCE OF THE CLAIRVOYANTS, a compelling highlight from their new album GIGATON. Eddie Vedder’s daughters were backup dancers, and former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer made a surprise appearance.

Here we go…
