Re: What Are You Listening To?
Ten, Vs and Vitalogy are the holy trilogy of Pearl Jam albums. After that, they were a bit hit or miss with good and bad tracks. You could kinda hear that they were starting to run out of steam on some Vitalogy tracks, but overall, it’s still a great album. And I actually prefer Vs to Ten. Such a great album, front to back, with the band let off the leash, pun intended.
Yeah, I heard the next album skips (No Code, 1996), but the one after that was good again (Yield, 1998) but I never bought or got too into either. Vitalogy was great when it came out, but lingered for about a year before it kinda was a different era in music. The Whipping is a pretty cool song. Like you Metallix I liked Vs more than Ten, although Ten is legendary & great album. I think Vitalogy saw Eddie Vedders musical preference taking over and doing away with the long Hendrix style songs & solos, and injecting himself with his lofi & three chord rock. Kinda ruined a special thing. I should give Vitalogy a listen. I think Ten is a better 'summer album' and Vitalogy & especially Vs sound great in the Fall.
