Biography

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.

About the Artist

'Vitalogy' is Pearl Jam's third studio album, originally released in 1994. Musically the album is more diverse than its predecessors containing aggressive rock songs, ballads as well as several experimental tracks. Struggling with tension inside the band and the ongoing difficulties coping with fame resulted in a pretty tense album. The album's package is a replica from a 1920s medical book of the same name which singer Eddie Vedder found at a garage sale. The booklet contains outdated discussions of health and well-being as well as more personal notes and pictures. Music on Vinyl now re-releases this classic including the original 8 page booklet and a beautiful embossed gatefold sleeve.

After the mega success of both "Ten" and "VS" Pearl Jam were in the position to do effectively whatever they wanted and in my opinion that's exactly what they did. Gone is the polished production and in comes the more live sound with a bit more of punkier vibe. Pearl Jam always sounded like a fusion of Led Zeppelin, Hendrix and Husker Du, remove one these and I just don't think they are as good and it was here that they found that perfect balance of all three. `Ten' was over polished and `VS' was a bit patchy but this however is far warmer and the song writing is more consistent if somewhat darker than both of the previous two. Anyone thinking that this is too experimental is obviously referring to tracks `Pry, To', `Bugs', `Aye Davinita', `Heyfoxymophandlemama, That's Me' but even if it's not for you they don't overstay their welcome. So don't let that put you off, I actually believe it's those tracks that give the other tracks room to breath and add to the charm of this record. Lyrically the album is a like tribute to both the death of vinyl (Spin the Black Circle), Kurt Cobain (Immortality [the ability to live by dying], Corduroy) and the pressures of success (Not For You, Corduroy). The thing I always liked about Pearl Jam lyrically was that their songs always seemed to be a helping hand rather than a descent into nihilism.

This is Pearl Jam's finest album, in which they really are on top form, and the essential purchase for any Pearl Jam fan. `Vitalogy' is definitely my personal favourite Pearl Jam album and a treasure in my collection. I wish they'd make them like this again.

With the release of Vitalogy, Pearl Jam takes on a new direction toward obscurity. After the two extremely popular, rock anthem, grunge records, "Ten" and "Vs.," Eddie Vedder and company have made a rather impressive attempt at growing beyond the grunge roots that made them what they are today. This record is amazing, and main-stream enough. But, you can feel the winds of change coming in the new material.
There are some extremely strong songs on Vitalogy. The first single off the record, called "Spin the Black Circle" was rather punk-rock, very different than most Pearl Jam. The B-Side was the better of the two tracks on the single. "Tremor Christ" ended up being the bigger radio song in the long run, as the single did not do all that well. It was strange to see what they released as singles from the record. Next was "Not For You," a rock anthem, very Pearl Jam. It's B-Side is a non-album, improv track called "Outta My Mind." The final single released was a great song called "Immortality," Its B-Side, a cover of "Rearview Mirror" from "Vs.," by a band called "The Frogs."
The strange thing about the record is the songs that weren't released as singles. "Betterman," "Corduroy," and maybe even "Nothingman" were great songs that found their way the radio even without the backing of Epic Records. They are some of the strongest songs on the LP, they could have easily done better than they did with a little marketing.
Though, it does seem, that Pearl Jam does some of this to themselves. A band, troubled for some time, with internal shake-ups, squabbles, and an ongoing battle with Ticketmaster, seemed to be allergic to the limelight. This record came out in the middle of the aforementioned strife in the band's history.

This is Pearl Jam darkest, and most experimental album. Recorded at a time when the band had become disenchanted with their sudden rise to fame, and in the wake of Kurt Cobain's recent suicide, the album sounds like a band trying their hardest to alienate their audience. While songs such as 'Bugs' and 'Stupid Mop' are Pearl Jam at their most self indulgent, the album features many classics, such as the punk 'Spin the Black Circle', the mournful Immortality, Corduroy, one of the band's best rockers, and many more of the band's best songs. The lyrics are also Vedder at his best, in turn angry and introspective. Although not as commercial as their debut, Ten, Vitalogy is without a doubt the band's most ambitious album to date, and while it may take some time to sink in, it will soon reveal itself as a dark, mournful classic.

It seems that people either love or loathe this album. Now seriously anyone who likes good, well played passionate rock music that sat down with this album for a few listens (most PJ albums seem to take a bit of time to sink in!) could not possibly think that this album is bad. Flawed, maybe, but are there any truly perfect albums out there? Basically PJ have had their taste of the limelight seeing what is happening to Nirvana and decided to do things their own way. This is what I respect about Pearl Jam. They make music that they feel strongly about and are willing to stretch their boundaries, and I think if you are truly passionate about your music then people will feel this and latch onto it (albeit in smaller numbers than immediatley accessible commercial music). That is not to say that PJ have made an uncommercial or unlistenable album. Several of these songs could have been hits if promoted well enough, but PJ just don't pander to the hit single short verse, catchy chorus template.
Admittedly there are some 'experimental' (God I hate that word!) tracks here 'Bugs' is amusing and does not detract from the experience of listening to the album but 'Pry to' and 'HeyFoxymop...etc...etc...' are a waste of space, but hey one's short and the others at the end so you can turn it off. Problem solved. There are also a couple of songs that just don't go anywhere. But at least PJ are willing to try new things.
So lets concentrate on the good. The triumvurate of solid rock out songs that open the album are a great start. 'Last Exit' is a bold stomper of a song, 'Spin the Black Circle' is a punk rock adrenaline rush and 'Not For You' is a slightly ominous sing-along.
