So much pain in Vedder's powerful voice and so tender. Absolutely his best! The end: haunting and complete!

This was & still is one of my favorite songs of all time. The mellow tranquility of the song just pulls me in. One day...I too will be released.

This song is very much underrated. Amazing lyrics.

Wtf!? This song is NOT about orgasms, guys! It's about Eddie coping with the loss of his father and the band members coping with the loss of Andrew Wood (Mother Love Bone). Have some respect!

dave, that was some lame story made up by the band. Pearl (color) Jam (sperm) refers to semen.

Come on people. This song is about Eddie's relationship with his father. Listen to the lyrics.

@Eric, are you an idiot, yes or yes? The name of the band came from Eddie Vedder's (that's the lead singer)grand m o t h e r ' s preserves she would make every year. The best of these preserves, or jams, she would call her "pearl jams" The name is both a homage to his late grandmother, and a metaphorical reference to to band's music. Now go get your head out of the toilet and read yourself a book real good like.

Ejaculation .... What exactly do you think "Pearl Jam" is?
Report as inappropriate
ejaculation? I dont think so
Report as inappropriate
The end of this song is also the beginning of the ten album, right?
Report as inappropriate
I am a huge Pearl Jam fan and I have never heard that this song is about ejacultion. Where does that even come from? The lyrics are no where near anything like that. I would not be offended but still I do not see it at all. Its probably cuz the song is called "Release" thats something like a teacher we had that had the last name "SEXton" so people assumed he was a pornstar.... . .

great song to hear live!
its like your in the song..... or maybe it was the drugs

All time favorite song!

Read the lyrics.....t h e song is not about ejaculation. . . .
Report as inappropriate
idk why Pearl Jam fans would be offended by saying the song was about ejaculation. Im not and I am a fan. Most poets and writers have multiple meanings to their work. the deeper the work the more meaning you can extract. Sex is powerful and just as deep of a topic as any.

Such a great song, and the perfect ending to the album TEN. If you don't have that album, pick it up, and listen to the whole thing start to finish. It's amazing how the order of the songs causes the album to flow so well. Release is just the perfect finish. Truly a masterpiece :).

Love this song. Love the lyrics so poetic.

thought in the middle it ended, and pandora was frozen... : P

Bill Clinton-that comment is offensive to those that love Pearl Jam-All of Eddie Venders lyrics are deeply personal and poetic, not just fillers to the hard music like a lot of rock. Don't post if you don't no what the F- you are talking about.
