Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

I see Vs. as a ballsy follow-up to a massively successful album. I love the raw energy this album has. It may not have the timeless tracks Ten has, but there is a lot to like here.

Key tracks: Go, Daughter, Animal, Rats and Elderly Woman Behind a Counter in a Small Town

Ten is a tough debut to follow, and at first I considered this a sophomore slump. Over the years I’ve really come to appreciate Vs. and now it’s probably my favorite PJ record.

No song in the album is as good as "Jeremy" or "Black" or even "Alive", but still, solid album.

While not as good as Ten, Vs. was still awesome. Rearviewmirror alone is worth the listen.

It's a really good album, but it's no Ten, which is one of the greatest debuts of all time.

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.'

Solid album from start to finish. Stands alongside their iconic debut as some of PJ's finest work.
