  • Chiiiild, please!

    Its been 33 shows and Ive yet to hear Pilate (of Oceans) - hoping this 20th anniversary show or whatever settles this "issue" for me.

    38+6 shows at the age of 27 and counting...but still no Undone

    I'm a massive Dave A fan but in my opinion the sound of the drums is impeccable on Yield. The tom sounds are just magic. It's like surround sound drums on Yield. Jack is the man.

    I think it's a tie between Yield and Ten as their best. Yield is my favorite from PJ. But I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the best album ever.

    Everyone knows the best albums ever belong to The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who.
    Shows: 6.27.08 Hartford, CT/5.15.10 Hartford, CT/6.18.2011 Hartford, CT (EV Solo)/10.19.13 Brooklyn/10.25.13 Hartford

    Probably true! I think it gets clearer and clearer every day though, that Pearl Jam are the one band outside the 60s and 70s who can compete with the greats of that era. :D

    Pearl Jam, U2, and Bruce are the only one's that can compete.

    If PJ can compete Radiohead, Black Crowes, Tool, Wilco, MMJ, Jack White and RHCP all deserve a mention. I'd probably include STP, Soundgarden Smashing Pumpkins, AIC with the next breath.

    Now add My Morning Jacket and Wilco to the list and we're looking good.

    Oh hell yeah, he's especially amazing on "Faithfull" and "In Hiding." The cymbal work on "In Hiding" is tremendously important in that song. Dave A. rules, and Matt is the absolute best guy they could have had these last 13 years, but we should never forget mighty Irons.

  • Yield may not be my absolute favorite but I am listening to the Yield 15th anniversary special. I am guilty of not listening to this masterpiece for a while. It is a very special, amazing album. Maybe my second favorite behind vs.

  • For me it's Ten, followed very very closely by vs. Don't get me wrong though, Yield is brilliant

    I would have disagreed with this until my No Code/Yield Super Deluxe Edition arrived. Holy shit these vinyls sound amazing!!! And the bonus material just makes it even that much better, right??! Sooooo worth the wait...I love you Yield!!!

    No Code has always been my favorite.  Also partial to Riot Act.  Yield is pretty good too though.  Lol.  Ten not too shabby either.
    I've seen quite a few Pearl Jam shows.

    I know it’s MY favorite album of all time! Best produced PJ album IMO and some of my favorite songs ever (In Hiding, Wishlist, MFC, etc). Even love the b-sides! Long live Yield!!!

    Yield was my gateway to No Code.   Like many other people I didn't know what to make of No Code when it first came out.  I gave it a few listens then stopped listening to it for a while.   Yield on the other hand, I loved it from the first second I heard given to fly. Played the shit out of the given to fly single cd, and love the album from the first playthrough.

    I went back and revisited No Code after that and fell in love with it too... but Yield's the album that turned me from fan to superfan :)  That and the Missoula '98 show :)

    That 98 tour is still my favorite.

    Five of the finest albums in existence making up those sets?! PJ reached a new level on that tour for sure.

    Same...my first PJ album purchase was Vitalogy.  I bought NC, listened a few times then kind of forgot about it.  Yield made me a superfan.

    I really did the same thing with Binaural/Riot Act too.  Kind of forgot about them and then they became my favorites.
