Perhaps shaken up by the chilly reception to the adventurous No Code, Pearl Jam returned to straight-ahead hard rock on their fifth album, Yield. There remain a few weird flourishes scattered throughout the album, from the spoken word "Push Me, Pull Me" to the untitled Eastern instrumental bonus track, but overall, Yield is the most direct record the group has made since Ten. Pearl Jam sometimes have trouble coming up with truly undeniable hard rock hooks, and Eddie Vedder remains at his most compelling on folk-tinged, meditative numbers like "Low Light," "In Hiding," and "All Those Yesterdays." Yield is more consistent than Vitalogy and No Code, but it doesn't have songs that reach the highs of "Better Man," "Corduroy," or "Who You Are." "Do the Evolution" and "Brain of J" have garage potential, but there's more bite and distortion on Vedder's voice than there is on the guitars. Pearl Jam's conviction still rings true.

pearl jam, what can you say about this band that has not already been said? this album rocks like none other that was released at the time. the 1st track just kicks you in the teeth. then you get FAITHFUL, this is a classic song that has serious meaning behind it. LOW LIGHT is a beautiful song written by Jeff Ament. IN HIDEING is brilliant. NO WAY is a classic pearl jam song about making a difference. buy this album, you must if you want to be in the conversation '' what was the best album of the 1990's'' 20 years from now.!!!!!!!

I really enjoyed this album. Yield has many unique songs that were very well musically compose and not to mention sung by one of rock's best vocalist, Eddie Vedder. Although Vs. and Vitalogy are great albums too Yield is as great as the album Ten.

Pearl Jam are one of maybe 3 artists that will be remembered after my entire generation has died. This album is the culmination of their hard work, and the fruition of the musical education that Stone Gossard got when he was young; the hard times that inspire poetic gestures from Ed Vedder; the amazing talent and drive to end addiction of Mike McCready; the power of art, photography, the written word, and musical beauty in the bass of Jeff Ament; and the best drumming since Keith Moon by the ancient wonder of the world *L* Jack Irons. It is perfect. Maybe one weak song on the entire album. If you are trying to find one. You can listen to this stoned, sad, happy, naked, whatever. It is good no matter what. BUY IT. BUY IT. You will not regret it.

Yield's smooth transitions from one great and meaningful song to another make it as good, if not better, than Ten.

This is a GREAT album. The best songs are Brain of J, Faithfull, Wishlist, Given to Fly, No Way, Lowlight, In Hiding, All Those Yesterdays, which is practically the whole album, and all the other tracks are great too. All of Pearl Jam's albums are awesome, but this one defenitly stands out. It's tied with Ten as my favorite album of theirs. The only song on it I don't like is the untitled one. But oh well, all the rest are awesome.

Honestly, this could very well be their best over-all album the band released. Jack Irons' drumming literally opens up their range and palate and gives a great deal of breathing room to the Stone, Mike and Jeff's playing. Sincere, open and utterly compelling, 'Yield' is one of the best rock albums of the late 1990s.

All of the songs on this album are awesome!! Brain of J. is a bit odd but has a nice groove to it. Faithful is a nice little tune, Given to Fly is just awesome!! Do the Evolution kicks!!! Buy this album because Pearl Jam always has something a little different to offer on each album. After all, it's evolution baby!!!!
