    Pearl Jam: Eddie Vedder (vocals); Stone Gossard, Mike McCready (guitar); Jeff Ament (bass); Dave Abbruzzese (drums).
    Recorded at The Site, Nicasio, California and Potatohead Studio, Seattle, Washington.
    VS. was nominated for a 1995 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. "Daughter" was nominated for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals, and "Go" was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance.
    Lyricist: Eddie Vedder.
    Photographer: Lance Mercer.
    Although it topped the pop charts and sold 5 million copies, Pearl Jam's stunning second album is unknown to much of the rock audience. Recoiling from the octopus-like grasp of the music industry, the group refused to support VS. with either videos, singles or a major tour, and rock radio was given just two acoustic-powered ballads, "Daughter" and "Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town," as so-called emphasis tracks.
    The former was about a sexually abused young girl promising to rise above her past, the latter about a forgotten woman with nothing but long gone memories. The rest of the album rocked significantly harder--harder and more raw, in fact, than anything on TEN--and zoomed in on a cusp between those two stories, on moments when outlaws, outcasts, the dispossessed and the disaffected were being called to political judgment. The woman sheltering a "Dissident" gives in and turns him over to the police. But the abused subjects of "Go" and "Rearviewmirror"--two of the album's most musically heroic songs--manage to turn the tables and get away.
    There was a suffocating bleakness to much of VS. (in "Rats," humans are compared most unfavorably to those animals) that would have dragged down a lesser rock band. But singer Eddie Vedder had the support of one of the most transcendent of all classic-rock bands, with a supple rhythm section and two creatively complicated guitarists equally at home with the thrashy pulse of "Go," the delicate prettiness of "Elderly Woman..." (check out the layered, stereo guitar work there) and the new wave angularity of a song like "Glorified G." It was serious, but also serious rock and roll.

    Dale, Edgemead. 6 November 2003

    This is quite possibly the best, or at least in the top 3, albums ever produced, in my opinion. It perfectly captures the essence of Pearl Jam and their philosophy; and the studio album sounds exactly like they do live. It contains a selection of 12 tracks - all of them crowd favourites at the concerts - and although the mood of the material differs from track to track, there is an underlying feeling of immense power, of enormity, of anger, and that you have lost control of the beast and that it may become an exercise in damage limitation more than anything else.
    The album - their second of seven to date, and following the brilliant Ten, which is a masterpiece itself - is sweeping in its scope - social issues such as gun control, domestic violence and police brutality pervade along with some much more outwardly relaxing (but emotionally taxing) tracks which reflect at stages on the hopelessness of the human condition. It can be uplifting or it can bring you back down at high speed. It contains paradoxes; it is riddled with angst; it is simultaneously angry with the situation but resigned to fate. From the explosive opening track "Go" and through several amazingly dynamic mood changes to the haunting "Indifference" which closes the album, Pearl Jam lay their demons on the table and pound them with a big stick. Repeatedly.
    I will admit at this stage to having all seven Pearl Jam albums, 5 live bootlegs and the live DVD from their last world tour in 2000 (and Take 2 have about 25 of the live bootlegs from that tour available for sale) and a bootleg live/rarities disc, so you may believe this review to be biased. Listen to the album - it's their finest work - and judge for yourself.
    Dale, UCT.
