    Not bad but not the best. The sound is a little quiet and the inner is awful so I replaced it. Otherwise not too bad.

      First off, the vinyl is housed in a paper inner sleeve, so unsurprisingly it comes out of the package scuffed and dusty. After a good clean the dust was gone, and the scuffing, thankfully, did not cause much surface noise. As for the sound? It's not bad, but it's not great. It sounds compressed and there is no dynamic range. You need to boost your volume to hear it properly, but it's like listening to a typical noise war CD at that level. Overall a disappointment as it's hard to engage with this great music in the way that you would want. 6.5/10.

        I've tried a couple different vinyl pressings of this album, and unfortunately they're all just average. Those of us who had the original CD remember how amazing this record sounded: the dynamics just reached up and slapped you in the face. Not sure why we can't get that incredible sound on vinyl with this one. Bummer

          Not a great, nor terrible pressing - just OK.

          Sounds pretty decent for the most part, but is cut at a lower volume in order to fit the album onto 1 LP. Because of this, you will need to turn up your amplifier, and surface noise will be more noticeable, particularly between tracks.

          Overall, it's everything you should expect for a longer album cut onto 1 LP at this price point. Judging by some of the reviews for the 2xLP versions, you may be best playing it safe and grabbing a copy of this one.

            I have no other copy to compare this to but I can confidently say this is an awesome pressing. If you find this for $25 or less, you’re not wasting your money.

              My copy sounds fantastic. Great album glad I found it.

                Mine sounds crisp and clean. Was worried about buying it from a Walmart, but it was only 18 bucks. Cover was a little bent, hoping it wasn't warped. All was fine.
                Kinda long for a single lp, but plays fine.
                Cover art looks like a bad cd scan and blown up. You get what you pay for.

                  My copy has some slight constant surface noise (especially in between tracks), even after a full wet clean. This press leaves more to be desired, but works for the occasional listen. This album deserves to be properly spread across 2 LPs at some point as a AAA release. One can only dream.

                    Surface noise on my copy, will clean and try again. Good album overall, probably one of their more well known. Will agree it's one of the more awkward covers.

                      Sure. It’s easy to hate Pearl Jam. And there’s something about Eddie Vedder’s mis-shapen face that makes me angry. But I will put side one of this, their first record, against any challenger.

                      Side one starts off with rocking groove, three tunes in a row. And then Pearl Jam hits you with a state-of-mind changer called “Why Go Home,” about being a teenage runaway. And THEN Eddie Vedder hits you with “Black,” and some of the most poetic lyrics of their decade. Vedder is like Morrison meeting Stipe, but better.

                      “I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life,
                      I know you’ll be a star,
                      In somebody else’s sky
                      But why can’t it be mine..?”

                      And THEN they hit you with the MTV hit “Jeremy,” about a misunderstood youth that brings a gun to class and blows his head off.

                      End of Side One.

                      Fucking A.
