Featured Album: “Ten” by Pearl Jam
Updated: Aug 27, 2021
On the cusp of the grunge movement, Pearl Jam’s debut record “Ten” sets the stage for what would later become synonymous with 90’s rock’s departure from glitz, glamour, and decadence in favor of an edgier, darker, more alternative exploration of serious topics including depression, abuse, and homelessness. Front man Eddie Vedder’s charismatic stage presence mixed with his controlled delivery of heart wrenching croons and grit-laced vocals starkly contrasted the band’s bright and powerful guitars, prominent base lines, and lively percussion to produce a provocative fifty-three minute jam session that’s an easy listen with serious implications. Experience the Pearl Jam classics “Even Flow,” “Alive,” and the Grammy nominated and 1993 MTV VMA Video of the Year “Jeremy” now on Spotify.
