Don't wait for your ears to drop off! Buy it, now!,

This review is from: Yield (Audio CD)
Pearl Jam have always been a critic's worst nightmare. Defining the Seattle based band has been a massive task for journalists since Pearl Jam's second album back in '93, most journalists passed them off as 'grunge'; yet to claim that this album is grunge would be a major mistake.
'Yield' compiles the qualities of every previous album and folds them up in to a neat package. The foggy riffs of 'Vs.' still remain, backed up by the melodic ballads of 'No Code'. The great thing about this album is it manages to remain diverse, yet still keeps in tide with the unmistakable Pearl Jam 'sound'. And that's the great thing about this album, unlike some of its predeccesors, 'Yield' defines Pearl Jam 100%; just not in words...
I'm not going to sit here and give you a review of each track. If you have an ounce of common sense, you'd go out an buy this. It's good for people who have never heard anything other than 'Jeremy' from Pearl Jam (cheers MTV). And the fans love it too. This is a great album to start a music collection off, it is cheap, nicely packaged, and essentially a great album and everyone has a different view about it.
