    I used http://www.pearljamsongranker.com for this mostly scientific analysis.

    1.) [Lost Dogs] - has 4 of my top 10 Pearl Jam songs (if you replace the terrible instrumental version of Brother)
    2.) Ten - widely regarded as one of the Top 100 albums ever (has 3 of my top 10 )
    3.) Vs. - has 2 of my top 10
    4.) No Code - 5 songs in my Top 50
    5.) Vitalogy - 3 songs in my top 20 (would be higher were it not for Stupid Mop)
    6.) Yield - 9 songs in my Top 100
    7.) Lightning Bolt - Based mostly on how much I like Infallible and the strong nature of the other tunes. 8 songs make my top 100.
    8.) Pearl Jam - 2 songs in my top 20
    9.) Backspacer - 3 songs in my Top 50
    10.) Riot Act - only one song in my Top 50 (and only 6 in the top 100)
    11.) Binaural - also only one song in my Top 50 (but only 5 make the Top 100)

    but an album is more than the sum of it's individual parts. Lost Dogs has tons of great individual songs, but to say it's a whole work of art like Vitalogy, No Code, Yield, Binaural and even Riot Act is crazy.

    that's why I made 2 lists. including Lost Dogs in the analysis just made this whole premise difficult to deal with.

    it's okay we got enough people to vote to get a good sample study, besides I think the most peoples lists change, I know mine do, but if you tell me that Vs, No Code and Yield are the 3 best albums, I can live with that, those are the only 3 albums that I love every single song on

    I am really surprised at the lack of love that Backspacer gets. For me its WAY above Riot Act, which would not make my top 50 (I would throw boot after boot above that one), above binaural and maybe lost dogs. Its got some really solid songs on it and beginning to end does not really have any major clunkers (except speed of sound). How can an album with Force of Nature, Got Some, Supersonic and Unknown Thought be that bad??

    lol, I am not re-adding up the points, it was a pain in the ass to assign point values to each vote, but of course as Pearl Jam fans we always change our minds, it wouldn't change the final order anyway, there was enough of a point differential

    Don't know how the whole thread concurs backspacer is last. I put it pleasantly in the middle. Because you can't be neutral on a moving train.

    Right on for Avocado number 1!

    Lol. Oh, I didn't expect you to retabulate! I just couldn't leave my name in this thing where I had LB sitting above Ten in my list.... must have drunk when I posted that first time, lol!
