One Of The Best Albums Of All Time- Now Even Better!

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love Pearl Jam. Ten is in my top 5 albums of all time. People my age got spoiled in the early 1990's. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, I can keep going. Back in 1992 I was an 18 year old in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Yeah, not much going on there. Then Lollapalooza '92 comes to town. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ministry, Ice Cube, Soundgarden, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Pearl Jam, Lush and Cypress Hill all in my backyard. What a great time from what I can remember. With the exception of Lush, I still listen to all these bands. Well 17 years later, Pearl Jam's Ten got even better. It was just reissued and remixed. Being the hard core fan that I am, I bought the collector's edition for like $120 bucks. No regrets. Well, I probably won't pay the electric bill this month but screw them. 2 Cd's, a cassette, 4 record albums and a DVD from Mtv Unplugged. Hell Yeah! Today I put Ten Redux on and Pearl Jam has never sounded better. Everything is crystal clear, including Vedder. Sounds I have never heard on the original Ten going through my headphones. Even if you already own Ten, go buy Ten Redux and reintroduce yourself to one of the best albums of our time. And if you don't own Ten, then I don't think we can be friends anymore.
