somethng different again,
This review is from: No Code (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.
