This is Pearl Jam's least liked album-but it's my favorite. Although Hail Hail gets alot of play on the the new live albums including ''Live on Two Legs'', ''In My Tree'' is one of my Pearl Jam favorites. When they played San Diego last month, ''In My Tree'' was described as a ''filler'' in the reviews. Go figure.

With No Code, Pearl Jam walked away from the type of music that made it America's most popular rock and roll band to celebrate ideals most listeners probably wouldn't understand. The result is a conceptual LP that is composed of gentle, religious mantras and loud, screeching garage rockers. These songs reflect on the ups and downs of the band - their ugly side and their spiritual highs - and No Code sums up perfectly the dimensions of a band that had undergone much criticism, pressure, and popularity over the course of only a few years. No Code opens with a soft, simple prayer, which greatly contrasts the band's tradition of opening with a fast-paced hard rocker. This gentleness, however, is suddenly interrupted when the loud, grungy hit "Hail, Hail" breaks through. And yet another style of music surfaces with the gorgeous "Who You Are," a middle-eastern-esque celebration. This pattern of highs and lows and varying tones may not strike listeners as immediately appealing, but Pearl Jam probably recognized this and courageously went through with the experiment anyways. Other noteworthy songs: "In My Tree," "Off He Goes," "Red Mosquito," and "Present Tense."

I own all the Pearl Jam albums, and am a huge fan. This album is my favorite PJ album, and although it may take a couple listens to sink in, this album is truly one of the best albums ever. PJ are the best band around today, however this album may not be for everyone. However, you shouldn't attempt to call yourself a PJ fan without this album.
