I said Pearl Jam is God? No. This album is the best follow-up album ever created and known to man. Following in the footsteps of their first album 'Ten', Pearl Jam combines hard rock with down-to-earth truth along with some slower songs that just show off Eddie Vedder's illuminating vocals. The song writing on this album is some of Pearl Jam's best with the songs 'Small Town' and 'Dissident'. Here's a more detailed song review:
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.

First I want to comment on the reviewer before mine. I totally agree with what you are saying. Pj, nirvana and AIC aren't the only bands out there. However, i disagree when you say that pearl jam don't break new grounds. Pearl Jam takes new steps in different directions with every album. Pearl Jam is so often put beside nirvana and AIC because they were all grunge bands, but I think Pearl Jam is more a straight rock and roll band that deserve your attention. And this album is a good place to start.
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!

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. There is music far better than this but because the "alternative rock radio stations" won't play more than just a few select bands most listeners will continue to be spoon fed by the media.
There is so much more to music than Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains (although they were pretty good) and Stone Temple Pilots.
Try listening to bands much more unique and deep like ORPHANED LAND, VISIONAIRE, KATATONIA, and PINK FLOYD!
Those are the bands that are treading new ground and producing depth and mystery, but because the Radio won't play them you won't hear them. (Pink floyd being the exception of course).
There is some redemptive value here on Pearl Jam but the above mentioned bands I like are way more interesting and will last for all time.

Pearl Jam's sophomore offering, 1993's Vs. (yes, you're right - it does not say Vs. anywhere on the sleeve) was at the time the fastest selling album in music history, managing to sell all 1.2 million copies printed for release date in the first 18 hours of hitting the shelves. The album received widespread critical acclaim as well as widespread critical disgust and a year later appeared in many readers polls in magazines around the world as both "best album of 1994" and "Biggest Disappointment," often in the same magazine (and I cite Guitar World's 1994 Reader's Poll as an example).
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.
