After a couple of listens this album does not click with me, I'll have to hear it some more times. It took me ages to appreciate Ten, so I may adjust my rating later.

A more raw and grittier album than Ten, though I prefer Ten, but this is a great album. "Go", "Daughter", "Animal" "Elderly Woman" and "rearviewmirror" are great songs.

In many ways I prefer this to 'Ten' as that album's quality seems to drop a bit the closer you move toward the end. 'Vs.' however maintains its momentum throughout and is a more solid, varied and well-rounded as a complete work. 'Go' and 'Animal' kick off the album well with some harder rocker while there's a bit of cooling down in the second half with two of PJ's most beloved, introspective songs - 'Elderly Woman' and 'Rearviewmirror'. Other songs here are good if not great, including the hit 'Daughter.'

This album has a few very good tracks surrounded by a few solid ones. Not nearly as good as 'Ten' but its still a solid album to have in anyone's collection.

It's easy to forget what a huge deal this album was when it came out. Vs was the fastest-selling album EVER at the time, which I guess means that Pearl Jam were the Adele of their day. Seriously, if you'd told someone in, say, 1988 that five years in the future a quasi-punk genre called grunge would conquer the globe and an album that didn't have a single or a music video (and some highly politicised lyrics for good measure) would sell in the millions, you probably would've been sectioned. Nowhere near as good as Ten, but then not many albums are. Back in 1993 the only Christmas present I really wanted.

A different feel and sound than, ten, but still Pearl Jam. Personally, I prefer the previous record but this is still another top album from a top band.

I know Ten gets a lot of love, but this album's quality is superior in my opinion. Pretty solid all the way through, whereas Ten has some amazing work and then some mediocre work.

This is better than Ten but doesn't get as much love because Pearl Jam shunned celebrity and ticketmaster.

This is a bonafide 100 if you get rid of Glorified G and have a better album closer.

This and Vitalogy are their two best albums and I put them at a tie because they are both great for different reasons.

VS. is straight ahead grunge melodic 90's rock.

Go, Elderly Woman, Daughter, Animal;, Rearview Mirror are all classics

Leash is underrated. So is Rats and WMA

This is where to start on Pearl Jam if you are new and want to get deeper into their catalogue beyond Ten' hits
