Editors’ Notes

Pearl Jam are a band forever torn between their desire to rock and their need to contemplate. Their debut album featured an intricate hard rock band who were re-calibrated by a new singer who carried his personal struggles and those of others like him on his shoulders. No matter how they hard they try to rock without guilt, it's who they are. Here, "Brain of J." and "Do The Evolution" charge at full strength, with raw guitar tones more in tune with sweaty rock clubs than the polish of a mega-sized arena. But it's the struggle one hears in the dynamics of "Faithful" and "All Those Yesterdays" that ties them tight to their audience. Even the album's first single "Given To Fly" openly uses Led Zeppelin's "Going To California" to speak to the devoted in coded musical language, while "Wishlist" was unafraid to remain simple and effective. It's why just when "grunge" bands of the early 1990s were often finding employment elsewhere, Pearl Jam were soldiering on in devotion to their creative impulses that's always felt to be in service of their fans.

Customer Reviews

Best Pearl Jam Album!

My favourite PJ album along with No Code.

Not my favorite PJ album

I have tried so hard to like this album. I have listened to it nearly every day for weeks on end in an attempt to let it grow on me, but it just won't. I love Pearl Jam, they are one of my favorite bands of all time, however, I just found Yield to be such an average album that it is almost painful to listen too. Many people say that it is a return to from for PJ after the experimental wierdness of No Code. Many people believe it is underrated. I disagree. I think it is a fairly dull album, and prabably PJ's laziest effort to date. I hate to criticise a band that I love so dearly, but it would be wrong for me to give this album 5 stars for the sake of it.

Despite my criticism, I must admit that two of may favorite PJ songs are on Yield, Brain of J and Given to Fly. I would reccomend that you purchase these two tracks and avoid paying for the full album.

Good, but not great.

Okay, so it's not exactly of the quality of something like "Ten", but I think this is a pretty good album all round.

I quite enjoy the experimental side to the album, and although this is slightly cliché, it's an album that grows on you over time.

Songs I particularly enjoyed include Given to fly, Faithful, Whishlist, and Do The Evolution.

I wouldn't pay £7.99 for it, but I think this album is a worthy buy at a cheaper price.

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...
