No Code (Vinyl)

by Pearl Jam
$56.99

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “No Code” and a new chapter in the band’s history, Sony Music Entertainment and Legacy Recordings are reissuing “No Code” on 150-gram vinyl with a set of nine random replica Polaroid and lyric cards. This is the first time “No Code” has been available on vinyl since its original release—pressings that now command triple-digit prices on the secondary market—and the first time it has being mastered specifically for vinyl, by Grammy Award-winning engineer Bob Ludwig. “No Code” will feature recreations of their original packaging, including the set of nine random replica Polaroid/lyric cards.


The 1996 sessions for “No Code” featured longtime producer Brendan O’Brien (his third consecutive collaboration with the band) and drummer Jack Irons, who’d joined the band at the end of the Vitalogy sessions. They explored new approaches to writing and recording, developing songs out of jam sessions and eschewing their stadium-rock style for self-examining ballads, garage rock and even psychedelic sounds. “No Code” became the band’s third consecutive No. 1 album, with lead single “Who You Are” topping Billboard’s Modern Rock chart.
