iTunes Review

Pearl Jam were still coming together as a band when they recorded their debut album Ten. Despite its multiplatinum success, the album never sat well with band members who felt it was too tight, too slickly produced, too vocal-heavy and with too much reverb. In the late 2000s, it was decided the early Pearl Jam albums would be revamped into anniversary editions to celebrate the band's years of service and producer Brendan O'Brien, who'd successfully produced the band's second album Vs. and all but three of their studio albums, was asked to re-mix Ten to the band's satisfaction. Surely, those who have committed every second of the original mix to memory will be surprised by the results, while objectively speaking, O'Brien's mixes are stronger with the reverb pulled back and Stone Gossard and Mike McCready's guitars brought up to match Vedder's vocals. The six bonus tracks include Gossard's "Brother" and early demos of "Just a Girl" and the two songs that found their way to the Singles movie soundtrack, "Breath and a Scream" and "State of Love and Trust."

Customer Reviews

Pearl Jam Light

The whole point of grunge is it's heavy moody sound. This is weak!!!

Pointless? Yes, probably.

I can understand the reason the band wanted to do this remix, but I think they missed the point of the original mix. The band probably thinks that there was too much studio polish added to the original release that detracted from the original artistic intent, i.e. the original mixer made these songs sound like a Def Leppard album or something, etc. They probably wince every time they hear it, like seeing a bad photo of yourself in high school. The band would probably also like to think the successs of the album had little to do with the person who mixed it and added all of that horrible "studio polish" to the final release (though they probably signed off on it at the time). The original mix of Ten is loaded with reverb and sounds HUGE, and was definitely a product of it's time, but that's the way this album should sound. Play the original mix of Ten and you get the sense that this is a band that was born for the stadium stage. These are rock anthems ready to resonate with millions of listeners, front row or back, or outside the venue. The production on the original mix is as big as the chorus hooks. The reverb on the original mix also adds a bit of a psychedelic spaciness, mystery, and depth to the mix. Do you want to hear Pearl Jam practing in your garage or do you want to see them on a stage with drums, guitars, and vocals reverberating into the heavens? Obviously, you can have both since both versions are avaialable, but is this album really Ten? No, this is simply a remix of Ten or the songs that appeared on Ten in a new remixed form.

Worth Revisting

This is one of the most important bands of the past 25 years. Their music directly shaped the sound of the 90s by combining their roots of the 70s with their own style and making it relevant. Technology has evolved since the introduction of Ten in 1991. They have not only remixed the originals, but they have made it more relevant. The original budget for this album most likely limited the original sound quality. This remix is closer to the quality originally intended for these songs. When they recorded Ten in 1991 they didn't know that they would circulate millions of albums. Now, you finally listen to this superior mix on superior devices and enjoy the difference.

Pearl Jam rose from the ashes of Mother Love Bone to become the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s.

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...
