    10 out of 10 for ten. The BEST grunge album of all time(tied with Superunknown) Sadly pearl jam never made an album as good as ten but they have come close.

    This is arguably the most intense, highest emotional album ever, starting from Jeremy ending to the final growl at Release. Its emotional, psychological deepness counts for the best album ever.

    One of the best rock albums ever. Diversity is shown between songs such as the slow and calm 'Oceans' and the fast paced 'Porch'. Great lyrics and riffs combined as well as stories told (Jeremy) create a great, great album.

    Ten is the best album from a largely overrated band. "Alive" is a great song with strong vocals and arguably the best guitar solo of the nineties. Download "Alive" and maybe "Jeremy" and feel comfortable ignoring the rest of the subpar release.

    Best album ever. All songs are great and you can listen it over and over again. This is a album must have for your cd collection. Buy it don't download

    Putting the sound war aside, this record should be granted a 10 on the basis of its popular alternate rock skill. Their original, remains an incredible listen, with each and every track providing a different insight into the disenfranchised mind. 'Oceans' will always have a place in my heart, but 'Once' remains the first track I ever heard by them, and it will remain one of my favourites.

    This album as a whole doesn't quite feel like the classic everyone makes it out to be. Sure Black, Jeremy, Alive, and Even Flow are all really good, solid songs, but they sound kind of dated nowadays. Vs and Vitalogy are by far their best and most vital when it comes defining them as rock legends of the 90's. This album gets too much credit.

    PJ is the most overrated band since U2 but, like Soundgarden, they had one killer album in them and Ten was it. I'd give a 10 out of 10 to Ten, but the remixes suck and get a 0. The remixes dilute the edge and band chemistry. Maybe you can understand the lyrics better, but that misses the point.

    I became a fan a few years back, but i was born during their era. I claim to love them now, one of my favorite bands. this albums however is a lot of simple rock chords. A few good songs but not even their best.

    One of the best albums that Pearl Jam has ever recorded in their career. Great bonus tracks with the song Brother included. The MTV Unplugged DVD is great as well!! Recommended album to all music listeners!!!

    Quite simply one of the finest records ever made - and not just in the 90's. Theres a reason it outsold nevermind, its a truely genre defining piece of work, and hasnt dated one day since it came out, timeless is the word. very highly recommended to all.

    This album arguably is the best the 1990s had to offer, but at the very least is 3rd only to Radiohead's OK Computer and Nirvana's Nevermind.

    10. I loved it back then. Gave it 10. The remixed version issued now strips it down to its essence. 100% pure american rock. Diamond. 10. i'm falling back in love again.

    It's quite arguable that this lean, muscular remix is a marked improvement on the original mix, as it's easier to focus on both the songs and group's interplay.
  2. 100
    His new take scythes through the original, revealing growls and guitars long obscured—sometimes it’s distracting, but often it lends the songs a newfound jolt.

    Ten is a classic of the grunge era, its super-sized anthems and introspective pieces powered by Eddie Vedder, a Jim Morrision for the plaid shirt brigade. [Apr 2009, p.116]
