TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 16 June 2011
Ten was a great album, not necessarily given its credit due to Nevermind and others being released at the same time. So this box set is a welcome addition to the Pearl Jam catalogue. It contains three disks, the original album, a redux album complete with six extra tracks and an MTV unplugged DVD. The original album is a five star set of raw guitar rock. Anthemic numbers such as Jeremy (please play this live more), Alive and Evenflow are here as well as some excellent album tracks. This is just a fantastic album of grunge rock. For those who haven't heard it before its a treat. For those who have - you know how good it is.
The redux CD is a remix of the CD by original producer Brendan O'Brien. I can't say I find it as revolutionary as others. At times there are improvements in the mix. But overall its quite similar to the original release. Some of the bonus tracks have appeared in one form or another before - State of Love and Trust is here as is Brother and Breath & a Scream which most fans will already have in one form or another. The versions here are good - but its not worth buying if that's all you are missing. The Package is quite nice with a booklet of photo's from the time.

But as has already been mentioned the DVD is the reason for buying this. The MTV unplugged set might not be here in its entirety but what is here is outstanding. This is not a stripped down and reconstructed version of the songs here. Don't expect that - that was done by others. No this is seven tracks, six off Ten and State of Love and Trust, delivered acoustically but with as much power as with the electric guitars. This is a snapshot into the raw power that Pearl Jam have live. Its an absolute gem and this release has been lent out many times and every time it has delivered a wow. Eddie Vedder falling off his stool is funny but if you watch this then the accusation of not being genuine is even funnier.

Is it overpriced - yes. Is the remix essential and refreshingly new - no. Is it worth buying - Yes. Because the DVD is a genuinely inspired performance by the band. For anyone with an interest in the band that DVD is essential

One of my favourite albums , and sounds even better ( better frequency response and range)) on vinyl than a stupidly boosted modern CD like you buy nowadays. ( just a pro tip for produces of CDs. You don't have to boost the output so its all at the same level , volume knobs exist for a reason )

Just a great album in all respects. As a big grunge fan this is an album that should be near the top of your list.

For a debut album this really is astonishing considering how every song feels like it has been written by a group of legendary artists.

Definitely one of the best grunge albums ever made up their with Alice in Chain's Dirt, Nirvana's Nevermind and Soundgarden's Superunknown. I guess you could say each of the "big four" grunge bands had one perfect album and for Pearl Jam this is it.

The album itself needs no review from me . But this quality of vinyl is what ivebeen waiting and saving for a good system for . When I bought the system this was the first album I bought . Wow it was worth the wait , it sounds incredible with Deep bass that doesn't kill the rest of the music , loud clear vocals that is sometimes hard with grunge . And a remix album

Every Pearl Jam album I've ever heard is amazing, and Ten is no exception.
I imagine this is one of the most popular Pearl Jam albums as it contains Even Flow (which is a song everyone knows) but try not to overlook the other gems on here. Black and Wash are my current favourites, but it changed regularly because theyre all so good!!

Would recommend this as the introduction to Pearl Jam, then, I think, Lightning Bolt.

First off, great album but my vinyl copy was terrible. As well as being covered in greasy finger prints it had a whole section (shown in photo) where my needle almost got destroyed. There needs to be better quality control, especially at these prices! Glad I bought it from amazon as a return was hassle free.
