Pearl Jam - Ten (2009 Re-Issue)


$36.00 Released March, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Pearl Jam to re-release their entire catalogue leading up to the band's 20th anniversary in 2011. MTV Uplugged DVD is awesome (and in 5.1 surround). Some of the remixed songs sound better than the original (WHY GO in particular).

The Cons:Money grab from a band late in their career.

Ten is the debut studio album released by Pearl Jam on August 27, 1991.  In 2003, the album was ranked #207 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.  Since its release, some band members have been dissatisfied with the way the album was mixed (supposedly too much reverb giving the album an "over-produced" sound).

JersyGuy99: #pearl_jam_ten_2009_re_issue One of my all time favorite CDsd, I'm thrilled they have put out a new mix (by Brendan O'Brien, no less) that is much cleaner and more dynamic and dounds awesome on high end A/V systems; in addition, the MTV video looks and sounds like it was recorded last week; Hey, if you think this is a 'money grab' then vote with your wallet; 'Late in their career'??? You don;t know what you are talking about..we saw them last year at the Beacon Theater and they wereas energetic as any 'new' group.... Apr 22, 09

dakalvia: #pearl_jam_ten_2009_re_issue Pearl Jam's original name was Mookie Blaylock (former NBA player). It was changed after the band signed to Epic Records, as record executives were concerned about intellectual property and naming rights following Blaylock's inking of an endorsement deal with Nike. In commemoration of the band's original name, the band titled its first album Ten after Blaylock's jersey number. Apr 20, 09
