Pearl Jam Appreciation thread (formerly "Ten" turns 20)

Considered one of the greatest debut albums of all time, and one of the greatest rock albums ever (certainly of the 90's), Ten was released on August 27th, 1991.

How I came to be a fan: While I was too young in '91, I had grown up in the mid 90's listening to this album thanks to my older brother, and it's remained one of favourites ever since.

While Pearl Jam hasn't remained as popular within the last decade, they still have one of the most devoted fanbases around, and this album seems to hold a special place in many people's hearts.

So, any Pearl Jam fans out there? When did you first listen to this album? Favourite song(s) from Ten? Do you still listen to it today? And if you remember buying the cd, or even the cassette tape (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_Cassette) in 91, is this one of those "I'm getting too old for this ****" moments?

Yeah listened to it when it first came out. Jeremy was overplayed. Black was/is my favorite song on the album. In other news I am starting to feel old. Stop these threads please.

I picked up Ten on vacay in Florida in '92 when I was 8 years old (I was awesome from an early age).

It's the only record I've ever bought three times (stolen, scratched beyond recognition, loaned to someone who never returned it...and that is why I don't let people borrow stuff anymore).

My favorite songs are Alive, Black, Garden and Release (I can never decide).

I love when they open shows with Release. For the record, my "Pearl Gym" mix starts with Porch. So badass. Or as Kurt said, so cockrock.

I'm heading up to both days of the Anniversary show at Alpine Valley. Been waiting for this one all summer. They've also got a documentary coming out by Cameron Crowe documenting their career.

Ugh, getting old.

I remember waking up early before school just so I could listen to the album before I had to go to class.

What an amazing album.

Seriously, thanks for this "you are old" reminder lol. I think I first heard Pearl Jam when it was played on Head Banger's Ball on MTV before they exploded. I even remember my mother taking me to the mall late one Saturday night to buy the Ten shirt, with the play list on the back. For awhile when I wore it people were confused as to what it meant and seriously tried to take the "note" on my back off.

I saw them perform this album live before it first came out at a club (the now defunct RCKNDY in Seattle). It was the night they filmed the video for 'Alive'. It was an awesome night that I'll never forget. The night was as follows:

Opening Band -> Pearl Jam Set (Basically all of 'Alive') -> 15 minute break -> Filmed the video for 'Alive' -> 10 minute break -> Chris Cornell & Matt Cameron (then of Soundgarden) came out and did a 'Temple of the Dog' set with the band.

This is one of my top 3 live shows I've ever seen.

1991 was awesome. Nevermind and Blood Sugar Sex Magik both turn twenty on September 24th.

Seeing the Vancouver show only this year, first time in ten years that I have only seen 1 show on a tour, usually try to catch a minimum of 4-5, sometimes as many as 10-12.

I totally saw that show on a whim. There was some buzz about the band based on the Mother love bone connection and early buzz when they were called 'Mookie Blaylock'. After seeing the show, I knew this album was going to be something special. I had no clue how big they and the album would be.

They were in the right place at the right time when it all came together.

Huge Pearl Jam fan, seeing them live for the fifth time next month. Got into them when I realized that they were the band who did Even Flow. I thought it was Stone Temple Pilots until I was 18.

Grew up listening to PJ (Missed out on there peek cause I was too young)

Ten is a great album and this makes me old

I remember being pretty excited to buy No Code and Yield when they were coming out. I know both those albums are mixed as far as fan views but I have enjoyed almost all of Pearl Jam's work

Ten, Nevermind and BlookSugarSexMagik are not allowed to be that old.

There's nothing more depressing than stuff I remember being fresh and edgy in nightclubs being 20. It's bad enough hearing Ozzy Osbourne and Van Halen in supermarkets.

I bought Ten probably in 1992...held off but it was too good. Black is also my favorite track, but I have the album high up in my list of all time albums (that I've heard ) on Besteveralbums.com.

Also loaned my copy to someone once and got it back scratched - what the hell is peoples' problem when borrowing CDs

I've always preferred VS to Ten although Black is one of my favorite songs they've done.
