The cloth-bound box is rather heavy and is the shape of a vinyl record. The slip box that pulls out of it contains everything except the vinyl records. In that is an envelope that includes reproductions of Pearl Jam memorabilia including postcards, a Mookie Blaylock playing card, concert ticket, sticker, etc. Additionally there are card-stock quality photos, all of which contain the box's liner notes/credits on the back (for the set, the concert, the original album and the remix).
Underneath a composition book is fastened into the box. The book, designed to perfection by Jeff Ament and Eddie Vedder, is exactly what a Pearl Jam would expect to see. It includes notes, doodles, designs and memorabilia seemingly fastened onto the page (though every page is actually just a flattened reproduction). The book is exhaustive with memorabilia, including backstage passes, newspaper clippings, pictures of the actual Mookie Blaylock. The box also contains a full sized poster of the album cover. It's a visual history of 1990 to 1992, a peak into the band's unique design sense, thanks in large part to Ament's meticulous craft. (As a designer, I took special appreciation in seeing the sketches of t-shirt designs or posters with notes about font styles and sizes).Read more ›
I admit, I hated 'Ten' for the first full year of it's release. It took some time to sink in. I was too accustomed to Weird Al, Madonna and 'Sweet Dreams'... I was still submerged in the 80s, and the blistering power of Pearl Jam was simply too much for me. Yet as I grew familiar with the Seattle quintet, so did my appreciation of their music. It was not until 93's "VS" that I realized that Pearl Jam had become my favorite band of all-time. I have been ardently following their career ever since.
Song by song review:
1. Once - With a profoundly suspenseful and edgy guitar to backdrop the first emergence of Eddie's vocals, this song is immediately famous. Plus it's got a haunting oceanic intro to boot...
2. Even Flow - Arguably Pearl Jam's most famous song, Even Flow is easily deserving of such status. It explodes into a narrative about a Homeless man, and manages to maintain the ripping intensity for 5 solid minutes.
3. Alive - Another contender for the most famous song by Pearl Jam, this song roars for nearly 6 minutes. Starting somewhat slow, this song builds to a climactic guitar solo that rivals any Zeppelin or The Who.
4. Why Go - Similar to "Even Flow" in it's blinding energy, this song is a standout among standouts.Read more ›
Better still is the addition of extra tracks from that era and the fantastic MTV Unplugged performance on dvd.
The important thing to note is that this is a well-put-together and well-considered reissue, not just some cash-in. As a long-time fan, I'm really happy to have a new way to revisit this masterpiece.

|Ten original or Ten Legacy edition ?||
Given the compression that online stores such as Amazon use on their samples (far worse than MP3s) there's no doubt you wouldn't hear the difference between the two.
The differences is that beyond the substitution of the original recording of "Even Flow" for an alternate version... Read More

|Pearl Jam "Ten" remastered||
Well, the difference in cost on Amazon is only $14.00, so you wouldn't have to pay $23 more to get the DVD. I definitely think the DVD is worth it if you're a Pearl Jam fan. I just watched it this morning and I loved it! The sound and visuals are both great.
