What is seen as Pearl Jams best and one of the all time greatest rock albums what should stop you from buying it NOTHING! this is one brilliant album and if you are just getting into Pearl Jam this is probably wear i would start it gives you an overall look at there sound. The album is mostly filled with rock songs such as once, why go, even flow etc but it has some amazing ballads on here such as Jeremy seen as one of the greatest songs ever Black seen by the fans of Pearl Jams as one of their greatest songs and Release a brilliant way to finish the album if you dont include the bonus tracks which to be honest are a bit filler but they were not initaly meant for the album there just bonus tracks. The album also includes Alive which is one of my favourite songs ever it has a riff that Pearl Jam has yet to match and a solo which is my favourite of all time, the song itself is seen as one of the greatest ever made. So if your just getting into Pearl Jam by this first but to me this is not there best work its just a good place to start. The other albums never got as much praise as this probably because after the success of the album Pearl Jam as a band did not like the attention but they still to this day continue to release brilliant music.
