Back in 1968, The Beatles released their double set called The Beatles, more commonly known as The White Album. Within those original album sleaves were four sides of brilliant and strange music. But there was also filler. Strange music. We're talking Revolution 9, Rocky Racoon, Why Don't We Do It In the Road, and several others.
In 1994, Pearl Jam released Vitalogy. Although different in sound, it was no different in content. On this album we had moments of sheer brilliance. Immortality, Corduary, Nothing Man, Spin the Black Circle, and Better Man really shone out. But we also have some strange cuts on this one. Privacy, Bugs, Aye Davinita, and Stupid Mop (listed as Hey Foxymophandlemama, That's Me on the back of the booklet). Then there were mediocra songs also.

This album has some brilliant moments. But it is, as Rolling Stone said, a wildely uneven and chaotic record. I grew up on Pearl Jam, my brother spinning Ten (and later vs.) into oblivion on his CD player as we went to private Christian school. Some of these songs on here are just unfit. pry, to is absoluetely stupid (if you play it backwards get Pete Townsend Saved My Life). Stupid Mop, clocking in at over seven minutes long, is a good 6 minutes and 15 seconds to long.

Sorry, the White Album is better. All the filler on that one had a purpose. And even the filler was listenable, and was cool. Plus, it was a double set. Not only that, it was The Beatles. And I can actually dig Revolution #9. Try as I might, I can't do that with Stupid Mop. Interesting lyrics though. Should have been released as an oddity track on some obscure single. Both are good, but The White Album is five stars. One thing about this is it didn't inspire any cult leaders/serial killers like its prentecessor did. But when its brilliant, its brilliant.

This album does not make up it's mind. It has some truly awesome songs, Immortality and Nothingman come to mind. However it also has some right crap, what the hell is on with Bugs, Stupid Mop and Aye Deventia, I just do not know. My other complaint is that the album does not flow well, the passage from song to song is erratic and I don't particularly like the experience. So as an album Vitalogy is not in the company of Ten and Vs. However there is no denying the volume of tracks on this album that kick ass. I cannot get how they managed to mess up an album with such great songs. I'm tempted to give it a low score but with the two songs I mentioned first plus greats like Corduroy, Betterman and a few others I can't knock it too much.

This is by far the best pearl jam album yet for some reason remains as a hidden gem in their back catalogue. If you didn't think much of Ten or Vs, this is certainly a much better place to begin, highly recommended

As many others have echoed this album is not as consistantly good as Ten but there are a many real stars in this album which set it apart - far better than the "stars" on Ten which I find anoying now ie. Alive - Tremor Christ and Satan's Bed are my favorite on this - and even if you don't like it as much as Ten the "box/sleave" is classic - the best on any album I've seen and probably worth the money in itself

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. The album is full of great tracks and there is a theme running through it - but it's punctuated with some pointless rubbish that just gets more and more annoying with every listening.

I bought this album on tape when it came out (I was a bit slow coming 'round to CDs). When you have to hit the FF button every few songs, it's the mark of a bad album. Of course, it's not such a problem on CD... But the very idea of skipping tracks is repugnant to me - especially Pearl Jam tracks!

I've noticed that a lot of people who knock Ten and Vs. for being too commercial tend rate Vitalogy and Binnaural as their best. Interesting albums with a lot of genius, but I'll take Vs. and Yield for the balance of accessibility (not really important when you listen to an album 1000 times!) and most importantly greatness (really the only thing that counts, forget accessibility) - with no Stupid Mops.

I love Ten, Vs., No Code, Yield, Riot Act and Pearl Jam quite a bit more than Vitalogy and Binnaural, but they still beat almost every other album that came out around the same time.
