Maybe this album's sound has been ruined by crappy imitators of Eddie Vedder (@ Scott Stapp), but then again maybe it just isn't that good since it is so easily appropriated.

I did not listen to the album for more than 20 years until I recently found a copy of "Ten" on an old TDK MA110 tape. I am surprised to like it more than I thought. There are so many great tracks and the audio quality is stunning. I prefer the original mix to the "Ten Redux" edition. "Ten Redux" sounds cleaner and brings more attention to the guitars but the rather quiet sound of the original "Ten" recording with more focus on the vocals still has it's special charm.

Eddie Vedder is a lyrical genius. Pearl Jam manages to make an aggresive grunge album, while still touching you in a way that a slow,sentimental album does. After first listen you'll never forget it again. Probably the most memorable album of the 90s to me and the best album lyrically in the 90s.

Simply put, a great first album from a consistently great band. 'Even Flow,' 'Alive' and 'Jeremy' (all solid songs) were so overplayed back in the day you couldn't avoid them if you tried. Hell you couldn't avoid them if you tried NOW either if you listen to rock radio as they remain in constant rotation. And no one can forget the music video for 'Jeremy,' which has sadly turned out to be pretty prophetic. Probably because those three songs have always been the signature tracks on this album, I find myself gravitating more toward the lesser-known ones these days.

'Black' actually became a fan favorite and one of their most popular songs over time despite not being given the exposure of the three aforementioned song. 'Once' was always my favorite song from this album and remains my favorite. 'Why Go' and 'Oceans' are two other favorites. Some of the lesser songs are stuck at the end but that's standard operating procedure.

Pearl Jam's debut album is of course the best one they've ever done,the whole album is full of fantastic tracks. A classic and grunge at it's best.

I heard this album just before Nevermind, and just after Metallica's Black album. I feel like it is the bridging album between escaping the contained world of heavy metal and expanding my horizons through the grunge era and off into the world of alternative/indy music and ultimately the truly expansive world of Radiohead. For this reason it holds a special place in my music loving heart.

Vedder takes us into his world of alienation and personal difficulties with such an engaging depth of beauty. I'll never forget seeing him projecting his soul outward live on stage in Melbourne as he stared me in the eyes with an intensity that I had never seen before from a front-man as he sang Alive. Perhaps Jim Morrison may have outdone him but I'm not so sure.
