Vitalogy reaffirmed the Seattle quintet Pearl Jam's status as the principled, proudly confused voice of a generation. On their third album, they found their footing as a raw, forward-looking '90s rock act that fearlessly tackled the Biggest Questions. The lead track "Spin the Black Circle" celebrates the healing power of Eddie Vedder's LP collection, but it is overshadowed by such masterstrokes as "Immortality" (which can be read, right or wrong, as a reaction to Kurt Cobain's suicide), the Lennonesque "Tremor Christ" and a thrilling anthem for the pro-choice movement, "Whipping".
Vitalogy followed the release of Vs. a little over a year later on December 6, 1994, and has since gone 4-times Platinum, reaching #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. And now some fifteen+ years later, these seminal records receive the definitive reissue. Vitalogy has been completely remastered and now includes three unreleased alternative versions of Pearl Jam classics.
Please Note: Tracks 15 & 16 are 44/24, mastered at 96/24.
