    I was around for the original thread created by fanch. I remember the first listening party we had...so much fun.

    I cannot even begin to describe the love I have for this album. It literally has everything... introspection, weirdness, rockin riffs, anthems. There is just so much going on in these tunes, so many layers. The songs on their own are amazing, but the production is so inspired and absolutely top notch. I love the little weird things going on in these songs, all the stuff in the background. I was just about to list all those little bits and sounds but I'd be here all day.

    as someone said before...yield is the bible

    I'll just chime in and say that if YIELD has to share a re-release with another album, I'll be pissed. If YIELD has to share a re-release with No Code or something I'll just chalk it up to Pearl Jam becoming "the man" and I'll send letters to Ed asking where his Republican Party Membership card is.

    Monkey Wrench Sessions are collectively a great idear. I like the idea of more footage from the SVT filming sessions. Just more more more. Throw it out there, run it up the flag and those of us who adore YIELD will salute it.

    I'll close with this. Last week, a few bros and I were talking about our favorite songs. GIVEN TO FLY was on my list. I'll C&P from that thread to this one.

    Have a great holiday weekend, all.

    GIVEN TO FLY - Pearl Jam: Favorite Pearl Jam song. The song just soars, especially the chorus. Best version I've ever heard is the one on PJ's Single Video Theory DVD. I'll never forget driving my '98 Chevrolet Tracker to meet my parents at Kentucky Lake for vacation that summer, the sun was setting and I was driving along side the Land Between The Lakes with this song (and the rest of the YIELD album) on; what a great memory.

    How about ending it over minute later with Hummus? I fucking love hummus! I remember being at a friends house and we were listening to Yield playing Sega. "All those yesterdays" ends and were all into the game and Hummus comes on like a minute and a half later. We thought that we were so cool that we found a hidden track. How much elapsed time goes past before Hummus comes on? GO!!!

    "Stunned by my own reflection
    It's looking back, sees me too clearly
    And I swore I'd never go there again"

    While I loyally followed this band pretty much from the onset of their career I would say it wasn't until Yield came out that I became a passionate fan of the band. Maybe it was the circumstances of the time that made this album speak to me at a deeper level like no other album of theirs had up to that point, but even to this day when I listen to this album it just feels like home to me.

    To me, Yield is a perfect reflection of Pearl Jam the band and what their all about musically. I always remember seeing post on the message boards back in the day polling people on their opinion as to what the perfect playlist was to introduce a newbie to...and I always thought to myself "why not just give them a copy of Yield and be done with it?"

    Yield is the Abbey Road (or maybe Let it Be depending on my mood) of PJ's career.

  • What is kind of sad to me about Yield is that it marks the last album that is totally complete from start to finish. I think the band did an amazing job of putting out full albums that flowed well and captured our imagination...

    The last few all had some moments, but nothing near the first 5. Sorrry to the Binaural fans out there, but that is where the drop off in albums starts. We have had plenty of great tracks since Yield but nothing that has truely stopped me in my tracks from start to finish.

    Seriously, pick a playlist of one song off of each album... Your songs may change every day off the first 5 albums... not so much off the last 4!

    I agree with pretty much everything you've said but we'll agree to disagree on where PJ's drop off started, if there truly has been a drop off. I consider Binaural to be a masterpiece in their catalog and every song off the album is even more spectacular in a live setting.

    In my opinion, while I genuinely love Riot Act for what it is, if I had to pick, this would be the album where I would say there was a drop off. And their S/T and Backspacer albums, while great albums in their own right, to me sound like the band realizing their F-up with Riot Act and maybe trying a little too hard to put a more listener/radio friendly touch to the albums.

    I've loved this band from the beginning and for some odd reason it took me a while to warm up to Yield. When it came out, I kinda fell off for a bit. I revisited it a while later and realized what a masterpiece it was! It's probably the one I listen to the most nowadays, so I give it major love.

    Also, IMHO, Binaural is the baby-making soundtrack.

    Same with me....Yield was really special at the time it came out...spoke to me directly and made me realize that PJ was going through life right along with me. I owned Yield before I owned Ten or Vs.

    I think that Binaural was awesome. I was disappointed when it came out but I've learned that you have to let the music sink in for awhile before forming too many opinions. Riot Act is a different feel but still a great album. I've always considered "Cropduster" to be a defining PJ song. That song captures the maturity of Riot Act in my opinion.

    Loved Avocado.....Backspacer is the only weak point in their catalog to me. I just don't think they were ready yet....Eddie was ready....but not Pearl Jam.
