Apart from 'Ten' this is maybe their best record. (Ten isn't 'dated' - its an album of music.) No Code is like the healing process after all the rage and torment of Vitalogy (yet still has a lot in common with that record.) Like Vitalogy, it is innovative + diverse + uncompromising + above all (as ever with PJ) comes straight from the heart. Although No Code is their most meditative/expansive and mellow record, it also contains their 3 heaviest songs: Hail Hail, Habit, and Lukin. Still, the fact that this album alienated most of the conservative kerrang-type fans Pearl Jam somehow managed to pick up, is surely a bonus point. In summary, this album will expand your mind + soul (and is a whole lot less pretentious than this review.)

Pearl Jam's second foray into alternative styles is an even more successful experiment than the punk-ish Vitalogy. Proving the band is versatile enough to try its hand at just about any type of rock, No Code refuses to adhere to the grunge foundations Pearl Jam helped to lay. Collaborating with Neil Young on Mirrorball clearly extended their musical confidence and, as evident in the delicate guitar harmonies and wistful ramblings of 'off he goes', added a touch of country and western to their musical repertoire. There's also a bit of The Who in the superb 'in my tree', and healthy dose of The Ramones in 'Mankind', during which Vedder's vocals rather refreshingly take a back seat to rhythm guitarist Stone Gossard‘s - again exuding the impression of a band at the height of their confidence. The sublime Dylan-esque finale, ‘around the bend’ (a nod towards Creedence Cleerwater Revival perhaps, who recorded another track titled ‘Green river’?) finishes the album on the same high point it sustains throughout the hour. Whatever your opinions regarding the direction Pearl Jam took with their music post-Vs, this is worth the asking price for the last two minutes of ’habit’ alone, which contains some of the most assured bass playing Jeff Ament has ever recorded. It is fairly obvious that the hybrid-rock niche the band continued to carve itself was detrimental to their mainstream success, but No Code will always be my favourite ‘mistake‘. Anyway, if seven equally fantastic and diverse studio albums come hand in hand with chart anonymity, here’s to the second half of Pearl Jam’s career. Smile!

Fluid, experimental and the sound of Pearl Jam hitting the peak of the mountain as songwriters. No Code is quite possibly their finest studio album. There's a wonderful flow to the first 6 songs, mixing the quiet sounds of Sometimes & Off He Goes, with the rifftastic Hail Hail and the soaring happy Smile. Who You Are & In My Tree show off the tribal drumming of new sticks man Jack Irons. The 2nd half has a couple of bona fide Pearl Jam classics in Present Tense & Red Mosquito, and mellowly ends with the lovely Around The Bend. They may of not been getting on while making the album, but aren't the best albums created in those circumstances?

'Ten' was epic but seems a bit dated and old school grunge nowadays, 'Vs' was too energetic for it's own good (although fantastic) and then 'Vitalogy' came along suggesting a new direction for the band with its dark and intriguing, messy 'experimental grunge' using bizarre chords and guitar sounds - but it worked beautifully. 'No Code' is the perfect blend of the heartfelt, simple acoustic sounds of 'Vs' and the intriguing complexity of 'Vitalogy'. Stand out songs include 'Sometimes', 'Hail Hail', 'Off He Goes', 'Present Tense' and 'Around The Bend'. I really don't understand why this album was so poorly received, even by fans of the band, I think 'No Code' is their most accomplished album yet.

I was a bit weary about buying this album as it didn't sell a lot of copies compared to the bands other albums and all the reviews i'd read of it weren't very good. However once i'd got it home and listened to it i was amazed! This is one of thier best albums and very under rated. It is quite mellow and shows a very artistic and creative band. Although in saying that there are also some very heavy songs on it such as Lukin and Habit. Stone also sings lead vocals on one song- Mankind. Although his voice isn't as powerful as Eddies, he is a good singer and Mankind is very catchy and upbeat. The lyrics on most of the songs are very meaningful and intruging and leaves it up to you to find your own meaning to the song. This album proves that Pearl Jam are a band who will experiment and risk putting out an album even if they think it may lose some of their existing fans, rather than making a half-hearted album that they know will be a commercial sucess. If you are a music lover then buy this

Many people criticise this album but on repeated listenings it is excellent. When I first bought this album I wasn't very sure. The first song 'Sometimes' is different and it takes a few listens to appreciate. That said, its a great mellow song. The second song 'hail hail' is a more typical PJ rock song. It is a live favourite and is one of many highlights on no code. 'Who you are' is another non-typical PJ song but is great. The percussion is particularly good and it is even better in the next song 'in my tree'. 'Smile' is probably the most accessible song. There is a harmonica in there. It is reminiscent of Neil Young. 'Off he goes' is arguably PJ's finest acoustic balad to date. It is a lovely song. 'Habit' is probably the heaviest song. Not the best on the album but it is still very good. 'Red Mosquito' is another brilliant song. Mike's guitar kinda sounds like a mosquito. 'Lukin' is another heavy song. It is really good but bizarely only lasts for just over a minute. 'Present Tense' is the best song on the album. The instrumental bit is pure genius. 'Mankind' features lead vocals from Stone Gossard! Its a cheery song that reminds me of Foo Fighters. 'I'm Open' is more experimental with a spoken intro.-I find this quite powerful-another highlight! 'Around the Bend' is a great acoustic ballad. So there you go. This is a great album. If you have Ten and have been put off this album by bad reviews, i am telling you this is great. Buy it!!!
