Biographyby Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Pearl 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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars speaking as a child of the 90's..... 30 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Apart from 'Ten' this is maybe their best record. (Ten isn't 'dated' - its an album of music.) No Code is like the healing process after all the rage and torment of Vitalogy (yet still has a lot in common with that record.) Like Vitalogy, it is innovative + diverse + uncompromising + above all (as ever with PJ) comes straight from the heart. Although No Code is their most meditative/expansive and mellow record, it also contains their 3 heaviest songs: Hail Hail, Habit, and Lukin. Still, the fact that this album alienated most of the conservative kerrang-type fans Pearl Jam somehow managed to pick up, is surely a bonus point. In summary, this album will expand your mind + soul (and is a whole lot less pretentious than this review.)

Pearl Jam's second foray into alternative styles is an even more successful experiment than the punk-ish Vitalogy. Proving the band is versatile enough to try its hand at just about any type of rock, No Code refuses to adhere to the grunge foundations Pearl Jam helped to lay. Collaborating with Neil Young on Mirrorball clearly extended their musical confidence and, as evident in the delicate guitar harmonies and wistful ramblings of 'off he goes', added a touch of country and western to their musical repertoire. There's also a bit of The Who in the superb 'in my tree', and healthy dose of The Ramones in 'Mankind', during which Vedder's vocals rather refreshingly take a back seat to rhythm guitarist Stone Gossard‘s - again exuding the impression of a band at the height of their confidence. The sublime Dylan-esque finale, ‘around the bend’ (a nod towards Creedence Cleerwater Revival perhaps, who recorded another track titled ‘Green river’?) finishes the album on the same high point it sustains throughout the hour. Whatever your opinions regarding the direction Pearl Jam took with their music post-Vs, this is worth the asking price for the last two minutes of ’habit’ alone, which contains some of the most assured bass playing Jeff Ament has ever recorded. It is fairly obvious that the hybrid-rock niche the band continued to carve itself was detrimental to their mainstream success, but No Code will always be my favourite ‘mistake‘. Anyway, if seven equally fantastic and diverse studio albums come hand in hand with chart anonymity, here’s to the second half of Pearl Jam’s career. Smile!

'Ten' was epic but seems a bit dated and old school grunge nowadays, 'Vs' was too energetic for it's own good (although fantastic) and then 'Vitalogy' came along suggesting a new direction for the band with its dark and intriguing, messy 'experimental grunge' using bizarre chords and guitar sounds - but it worked beautifully. 'No Code' is the perfect blend of the heartfelt, simple acoustic sounds of 'Vs' and the intriguing complexity of 'Vitalogy'. Stand out songs include 'Sometimes', 'Hail Hail', 'Off He Goes', 'Present Tense' and 'Around The Bend'. I really don't understand why this album was so poorly received, even by fans of the band, I think 'No Code' is their most accomplished album yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 23 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was a bit weary about buying this album as it didn't sell a lot of copies compared to the bands other albums and all the reviews i'd read of it weren't very good. However once i'd got it home and listened to it i was amazed! This is one of thier best albums and very under rated. It is quite mellow and shows a very artistic and creative band. Although in saying that there are also some very heavy songs on it such as Lukin and Habit. Stone also sings lead vocals on one song- Mankind. Although his voice isn't as powerful as Eddies, he is a good singer and Mankind is very catchy and upbeat. The lyrics on most of the songs are very meaningful and intruging and leaves it up to you to find your own meaning to the song. This album proves that Pearl Jam are a band who will experiment and risk putting out an album even if they think it may lose some of their existing fans, rather than making a half-hearted album that they know will be a commercial sucess. If you are a music lover then buy this

5.0 out of 5 stars somethng different again 11 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. Up until I heard it I mainly listened to Ten and RVM although I had also heard Vs, Vitalogy and Binaural. As soon as I heard No Code it became a firm favourite as I feel once again Pearl Jam experimented with many different musical styles and influences. Ed Vedder's exceptional voice is showcased on such beautiful tracks as Off He Goes and the almost calypso style lullaby Around the Bend which has become one of my favourite ever Pearl Jam tracks. But there is also plenty there for lovers of the louder pacier songs where Ed has a good scream! Not every song works perfectly, but none the less, any Pearl Jam fan would find this a valuable addition to their collection - and if you don't know their music, its well worth a listen too as it encapsulates so much of what they are about.
