Even after four listens I canĀ“t understand the praise of this albums, not bad, but maybe too generic.

Can't think of any other album this original and unique sounding without losing any of it's raw, emotional power.

This album song for song is great and everything I wish rock n roll was today but sadly is not. Eddies angst in his voice on this album was sadly never truly duplicated on any of their following records

My favorite album of the grunge genre, they're later stuff is hit or miss for me, but ten is absolutely unbelievable. Haven't seen anything about this in interviews or online blogs, but it sounds to me like a concept album about the mind of a schizophrenic maniac

From jackbrown8786 04/24/2017 00:53
possibly the 2nd best alt rock album ever, right behind Doolittle. the instrumentation is kept top notch throughout and the lowest rated track on BEA, "Deep," is still really good. "Release" is very underrated and an excellent closer. Only "Oceans," "Porch," and "Why Go" are noticeably a tier below the perfection of "Black," the other tracks are close enough. and a tier below Black is still great. the list of hard rock albums to reach this quality for at least half of their running length is a very short, Zeppelin-dominated one.

EDIT: some of these other comments... wow. "not great"? Even Flow, Alive, Black, Jeremy, Once, Release, Garden... if the deep cuts haven't hit you yet, maybe try listening with the lyrics in front of you and then giving it another listen before saying this isn't exceptional. I didn't even mention how distinct this band is. if you hear any 2 second section of this album, you know it's unmistakably Pearl Jam. this isn't some interchangeable, every-other-band-quality music, it's Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready recruited by the remnants of Mother Love Bone (another underrated, early grunge band). keep in mind that this came out BEFORE Nevermind and it's musically a lot more complex, layered, and difficult. Nevermind is the 101 to Ten's advanced college course, except that it didn't even precede Ten. I don't know, maybe you've just heard the standouts from Ten so many times that you now just take them for granted. I know they're still played daily in bars around here.

I can't comprehend why this album is rated a meagre 82/100.some people say it loses some steam in the 2nd half,well In my opinion barring the songs Deep and Porch the whole album is utterly enchanting. Plus deep and Porch aren't bad songs too they're just mediocre but that in no way justifies the low rating.the album is groundbreaking, versatile,sombre at places and energetic at some. An eternal masterpiece

I know pj aren't a band for everyone and thus 82 instead of deserved 85+, but for me one of the most diverse albums ever. You have beautiful ballads, nearly metal songs and they always keep it interesting and different from the usual song structures, lyrics etc. Maybe the best debut ever, no song is skippable and one of my favourites ever!
