Pearl Jam’s “Ten” (1991)

(Originally Published July 26th 2012)
Pearl Jam’s “Ten”. This album is a goldmine. It’s chock full of amazing songs that really strike an emotional chord for me. If you’re the type of person who can’t get used to or appreciate Eddie Vedder’s voice; you’re missing out.

This album has got thoroughly banging rhythms, a generous heaping of wet guitar solos, and most importantly: memorable and meaningful lyrics delivered by the one of a kind voice of Eddie Vedder. A voice capable of rallying spirits to the sky, and plunging them back into the lowest darkness. The emotional back and forth I experience while listening to “Ten” is special, not many albums do that to me.

Take a listen to the song “Black” and tell me that you don’t recall feelings of loss and hopelessness. It’s beautiful. And then songs like “Even Flow” are full of this energizing positive energy.  “Ten” is an emotional volley where nothing falls flat and it is one of my favorite albums of all time.
