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 `A Truant Finds Home' 8 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam's New Path 5 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, and a Stupid Mop. 31 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
This, along with 'Riot Act' is classic Pearl Jam. What they're all about in my opinion. This is a brilliant record with some of the greatest Pearl Jam songs ever stacked nicely throughout. Add to that the brilliant book and overall Vinyl feel to it, and you're rocking. A classic album.
Vitalogy is split into two parts, 1 & 2. 1 consists of the strong, brilliant tracks and 2 focuses more on their experimental stuff, ending with the frankly quite disturbing "hey foxymophandlemama, that's me" or "Stupid Mop." It's a 7 and a half minute opus about mops and sex, and sex with mops. It's really odd. I mean really odd. Disturbing. The voiceover and stuff just makes it sound like something from 'Silence of the Lambs', but that aside, it's an ace record. You always get the feeling that Eddie & co. always stick something on the end of their records to stop them from being perfect. Just to annoy us lol. I think so anyway.
Anyway, why all the fuss?
Well, "Corduroy", "Spin The Black Circle", "Last Exit", "Tremor Christ", "Not For You", "Immortality", "Nothingman" AND "Betterman" are all on here. See why now? lol
This is a brilliant album, and many people's favourite for obvious reason. Add to that the brilliant, jammy "Aye Davanita" and Eddie's romp with an accordion classic "Bugs", and you have probably the perfect PJ album. Not my favourite, however. It feels too dark. It sounds too dark. It is, too dark. Not in the same league as 'Ten' as dark albums go, but for sure a close second.
Did I mention the booklet? I love that thing.
5 Stars. Just Get It. Now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Jam sell out.......not 15 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

This is basically a great album wrapped up in pap. They had a lot of baggage to carry with two hugely commercially successful albums and were determined to throw it off. Read more
