    I came to conclusion that its pretty much impossible to say my favorite PJ album, but Avocado will always be my favorite deep down.

    But thats really only because I started getting into PJ on a serious level when Avocado came out, and also when I first saw them in 06. Memories.

    After avocado
    Backspacer was a huge disappointment
    I'm hoping "of the earth" is a sign of their future direction with some epic grunge stomp and mccready stone extended guitar solos...
    I don't think there is one significant guitar solo in all of Backspacer...
    That's just not right!

    yeah it's tough to call "one" of them. they each represent a different time in the life and are all equally significant in building their legacy.

    <3 is a heart. a sideways one. A "crooked" one. ;)

    Avocado is very underrated and has some really awesome lyrics. If you don't love it yet, give it time. :D

    Watch out also for </3 - which is how I'll feel when they announce the 20th anniversary concert and I realise I'm too broke to go.

    What were we talking about? Oh yeah...Avocado...right. Great record - up there with my favourites. Army Reserve somehow went from being my least favourite song on that album to one of my favourite Pearl Jam songs ever.

    I agree 100%

  • I just started back up listening to it after watching the ACL show this weekend again. Army Reserve and Inside are really great tunes and since I put the CD in my car I am reminded that it is a Damn good Album. Now I will probably have it playing in my car for the next few weeks and will be enjoying every minute of it!!! :D

    You cant really compare PJ albums. To say that Backspacer was a disappointment after avocado is subjective and would give merit to me saying that vitalogy was a disappointment compared to Vs.

    But yeah, avocado is great, but i'd take backspacer, yield, vs, ten and binaural over that one if i had to choose

    Funny, I was just thinking the other day that it hasn't aged that well for me.

    I loved, loved, loved Backspacer since the very beginning and I haven't stopped loving it since.
    ... and the will to show I will always be better than before.

    I agree. Self Titled is the only album I can't listen to. I gave it another chance this week but I couldn't get through the album.

    I think that Avocado is the most underrated PJ album. If it would have been released in 1996 instead of 2006, it would have received much more attention. With the release of Avocado, my interest in PJ was kick-started once again and it hasn't let up since. I created an account on The Pit as a result of Avocado. Avocado also led to my excitement over the release of Backspacer and the 2009 tour, in which I attended two awesome shows (Chicago 2 and Los Angeles 4).

    (After Vitalogy, my interest in PJ began to drop and things happened in my life such as law school, so I was in the bunker for a few years, but I'm happy to say that I've been a fanatic once again and have been going non-stop since 2006.)
