Artist Overview
Pearl Jam was the most popular American rock band of the '90s. Ten, their 1991 debut, didn't begin selling significantly until early 1992, after Nirvana made mainstream rock radio receptive to alternative rock. Soon, Pearl Jam outsold Nirvana, which wasn't surprising: Pearl Jam fused the riff-heavy stadium rock of the '70s with the grit and anger of '80s post-punk, without ever neglecting hooks and choruses. Despite their status as rock & roll superstars, the band refused to succumb to the accepted conventions of the music industry. They remained successful, if not nearly as visible, throughout the 2010s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.66) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Alive' hits harder; 'Black' feels broader in scope; and Eddie Vedder's soaring vocals on 'Oceans' shine brighter."
Spin (9/99, p.136) - Ranked #32 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."
Spin (1/93) - Ranked #15 in Spin's list of the 20 Best Albums Of 1991.
Q (12/99, p.74) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
Q (1/93, p.73) - Included in Q's list of the 50 Best Albums Of 1992.
Q (3/92, p.79) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...a raucous modern rock, spiked with infectious guitar motifs and powered with driving bass and drums...may well be the face of the 90's metal..."
Village Voice (3/2/93, p.5) - Ranked #34 in the Village Voice's list of the 40 Best Albums Of 1992.
Stereo Review (1/92, p.80) - Performance "Challenging" / Recording "Good" - "...the band sounds larger than life, producing a towering inferno of roaring guitars, monumental bass and drums, and from-the-gut vocals...the tunes here surge, ebb, and surge again..."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.51) - "[T]hese songs are as touching today as the day they came out..."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "With its nod to classic '70s rock in the shotgun guitars and engaging Vedder's ragged, back-to-the-wall fury dissecting a fractured family life anthem like 'Alive' and 'Jeremy' sound as relevant and impassioned today as they did on the original release."
Q (Magazine) (p.123) - "The hit singles 'Jeremy' and 'Alive' wove serious lyrical subject matter to flurrying guitar solos and singer Eddie Vedder's hectoring vocals..."
Q (Magazine) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] classic songwriting that wasn't afraid to wear its influences on its sleeve....The freewheeling guitars of 'Even Flow' and 'Jeremy' sounded vintage even then, so it's no surprise that they've held up so well after all these years."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "TEN is a classic of the grunge era, its super-sized anthems and introspective mood pieces powerfully voiced by Eddie Vedder..."
Blender (Magazine) (p.64) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "It's an exhilarating punk howl....It's a batch of outsider's tales coursing with beefy swagger..."
Uncut (magazine) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "It sounds great...from the inflammatory guitar intro to the momentous 'Once' to the final handsome drift of 'Release,' it's a resplendent thing."
Artist Bio
Pearl JamPearl Jam rose from the ashes of Mother Love Bone to become the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s. After vocalist Andrew Wood overdosed on heroin in 1990, guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament assembled a new band, bringing in Mike McCready on lead guitar and recording a demo with Soundgarden's Matt Cameron on drums. Thanks to future Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons, the demo found its way to a 25-year-old San Diego surfer named Eddie Vedder, who overdubbed vocals and original lyrics and was subsequently invited to join the band (then christened Mookie Blaylock after the NBA player). Dave Krusen was hired as the full-time drummer shortly thereafter, completing the original lineup. Renaming themselves Pearl Jam, the band recorded their debut album, Ten, in the beginning of 1991, although it wasn't released until August; in the meantime, the majority of the band appeared on the Andrew Wood tribute project Temple of the Dog. Krusen left the band shortly after the release of Ten; he was replaced by Dave Abbruzzese.
