AllMusic

Ten ... benefited from a long gestation period, during which the band honed the material into this tightly focused form; the result is a flawlessly crafted hard rock masterpiece.

Rolling Stone

They wring a lot of drama out of a few declarative power chords swimming in echo.

Like many of its Seattle cohorts, Pearl Jam also flail about in search of a groove and a song. Occasionally, as in the single ”Alive,” they find both. More often, they lose themselves in a sound that only goes to show that just about anything can be harnessed and packaged.

A new band, a great begining, just music. Best Gossard's riffs, very meaningful, a little bit dark. Maybe One of the best debuts in music

It's solid. Quite consistent.

but also overrated.

I'm not the biggest fan of pearl jam, to me the band discography fells flat. However, with their 1991 LP "Ten"" it was a certified massive hit in the 90's grunge scene with some of the more notable tracks of here such as ""Even flow"" or "Alive"". While I won't diminish is importance of it at that time, the album as a whole isn't as consistent or memorable enough for me to return.
