EDITORS’ NOTES

Pearl Jam were still coming together as a band when they recorded their debut album Ten. Despite its multiplatinum success, the album never sat well with band members who felt it was too tight, too slickly produced, too vocal-heavy and with too much reverb. In the late 2000s, it was decided the early Pearl Jam albums would be revamped into anniversary editions to celebrate the band's years of service and producer Brendan O'Brien, who'd successfully produced the band's second album Vs. and all but three of their studio albums, was asked to re-mix Ten to the band's satisfaction. Surely, those who have committed every second of the original mix to memory will be surprised by the results, while objectively speaking, O'Brien's mixes are stronger with the reverb pulled back and Stone Gossard and Mike McCready's guitars brought up to match Vedder's vocals. The six bonus tracks include Gossard's "Brother" and early demos of "Just a Girl" and the two songs that found their way to the Singles movie soundtrack, "Breath and a Scream" and "State of Love and Trust."

Worth Revisting

This is one of the most important bands of the past 25 years. Their music directly shaped the sound of the 90s by combining their roots of the 70s with their own style and making it relevant. Technology has evolved since the introduction of Ten in 1991. They have not only remixed the originals, but they have made it more relevant. The original budget for this album most likely limited the original sound quality. This remix is closer to the quality originally intended for these songs. When they recorded Ten in 1991 they didn't know that they would circulate millions of albums. Now, you finally listen to this superior mix on superior devices and enjoy the difference.
