All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A strange phenomenon with anthemic hard rock bands is that when they begin to mature and branch out into new musical genres, they nearly always choose to embrace both the music and spirituality of the East and India, and Pearl Jam is no exception. Throughout No Code, Eddie Vedder expounds on his moral and spiritual dilemmas; where on previous albums his rage was virtually all-consuming, it is clear on No Code that he has embraced an unspecified religion as a way to ease his troubles. Fortunately, that has coincided with an expansion of the group's musical palette. From the subtle, winding opener, "Sometimes," and the near-prayer of the single, "Who You Are," the...

A strange phenomenon with anthemic hard rock bands is that when they begin to mature and branch out into new musical genres, they nearly always choose to embrace both the music and spirituality of the East and India, and Pearl Jam is no exception. Throughout No Code, Eddie Vedder expounds on his moral and spiritual dilemmas; where on previous albums his rage was virtually all-consuming, it is clear on No Code that he has embraced an unspecified religion as a way to ease his troubles. Fortunately, that has coincided with an expansion of the group's musical palette. From the subtle, winding opener, "Sometimes," and the near-prayer of the single, "Who You Are," the band reaches into new territory, working with droning, mantra-like riffs and vocals, layered exotic percussion, and a newfound subtlety. Of course, they haven't left behind hard rock, but like any Pearl Jam record, the heart of No Code doesn't lie in the harder songs, it lies in the slower numbers and the ballads, which give Vedder the best platform for his soul-searching: "Present Tense," "Off He Goes," "In My Tree," and "Around the Bend" equal the group's earlier masterpieces. While a bit too incoherent, No Code is Pearl Jam's richest and most rewarding album to date as well as their most human. They might be maturing in a fairly conventional method, but they still find new ways to state old truths.

    Pearl Jam's most ambitious, and misunderstood, album

    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."

    Favorite PJ Album

    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.

    Pearl Jam's ''Incesticide''

    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.
