01 Go - the starter is a hard hitter, very Pearl Jamish and grunge.
02 Animal - Vedder stresses the chorus, it's brilliant.
03 Daughter - one of Pearl Jam's most known songs, a very discriptive story telling song, excellent
04 Glorified G - one of my favourite Pearl Jam songs. A fast paced fun song to listen to, some people may mix up the lyrics but the message is clear to me
05 Dissident - check out the amazing lyrics
06 WMA - I don't know why a lot of people don't give this song a chance, it's actually really well written and performed. I love the 'police man' part
07 Blood - a lot of people I know don't really enjoy this song, I don't know why. Always been one of my favourites on this album. Very hard, Vedder is screaming with angst, pure grunge at its best
08 Rearviewmirror - though this song has been a bit overplayed (since it was my sister's favourite for years), it's still an amazing song.
09 Rats - Ament shines on bass on this classic Pearl Jam song. I love the lyrics as well
10 Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town - often short formed to 'Small Town', this slower, fun-to-sing-to song is one of Pearl Jam's best.Read more ›
This album is a classic, however it is living in the shadow of the commercial success album 'ten'. Vs sold almost 1 million copies in its first week of release. Back then, they counted 5 days as one week, making vs selling that many copies in only 5 days. Today, N'sync own the record, however, today they count all 7 days of the first week of sale. Even N'sync needed more than 5 days to beat this . Therefore the record still belongs to pearl jam in a way!
On to the album.
The first 2 songs are go and animal,both fast rockers that an be frustrating in the first listens.
Daughter - Pearl Jam's first acustic song. This song is great and recieves a lot airplay on the radio.
Glorified G - A fairly straight rocker with a great solo at the end. They seem to have fun.
Dissident is the albums first masterpiece. A great riff with soaring lyrics and a powerful voice by Eddie.
WMA - A hard first listen. It features a cool drumbeat and a haunting Eddie. The song is great and you will grow to love it.
Blood - This song is heavy and craaazy with eddie screaming his loungs out for 3 minutes.
Rearviewmirror - The albums second masterpiece! WOW, this song was the song that got me into pearl jam. Watch out for the finale of the song, magnificent stuff!Read more ›
The reason for this hugely mixed reception was its dissimilarity to the debut, Ten, from 1991, which sold something ridiculous like 14 million albums worldwide. Ten was a breath of fresh air in the aftermath of 80s hair metal and the late 80s/early 90s technopop and hit the ground around the same time as landmark multiplatinum albums by fellow Seattle outfits Soundgarden (Badmotorfinger), Nirvana (Nevermind) and Alice in Chains (Dirt). It was a revelation - a hugely personal album to the band (as all decent albums should be, I think) which struck a chord with listeners as it had the musical prowess to be potent and listenable as well as carrying the emotion it did. Needless to say, Pearl Jam were tipped to be successors to U2 as the world's next biggest band; it was with great expectation that we awaited Vs.
Vs., though, is an entirely different animal to Ten. Firstly, Ten was magnificent as a studio album with production by the Parashar brothers second to none. Vs, the band's frist collaboration with Brendan O'Brian, captured a more live, stripped-down feel. To this day, Pearl Jam's massive catalogue of live albums (80 or so from three different world tours) sound like Vs.Read more ›

Alright folks, why oh why does a song like "Daughter" get on the radio? The chorus for daughter sounds like a complete joke! Pearl Jam is overrated. Read morePublished on May 20 2004
I got into Pearl Jam after Yield, in 1998 I think, and was stunned by their musicianship and song writing ability, which is evident throughout the album. Read morePublished on May 11 2004 by Tom Chase
After the success of Ten, Pearl Jam got angry at being called metal (boo hoo) so they went in this crappy direction. Read morePublished on May 6 2004 by Mr. W
Pearl Jam's second album Vs, would be the album that would shed the Seattle Scenes posers, no music videos, strictly an album made for PJ's fans not for the music fickalists. Read morePublished on May 5 2004 by Brian Baisden
