Info for Vs.

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.

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.

Pearl Jam
is an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. Since its inception, the band’s line-up has included Eddie Vedder (lead vocals, guitar), Jeff Ament (bass guitar), Stone Gossard (rhythm guitar), Mike McCready (lead guitar), and drummer Matt Cameron, who has been with the band since 1998.

Formed after the demise of Ament and Gossard’s previous band Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam broke into the mainstream with its debut album Ten. One of the key bands of the grunge movement in the early 1990s, Pearl Jam was criticized early on—most notably by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain—as being a corporate cash-in on the alternative rock explosion. However, over the course of the band’s career its members became noted for their refusal to adhere to traditional music industry practices, including refusing to make music videos and engaging in a much-publicized boycott of Ticketmaster. In 2006, Rolling Stone described the band as having “spent much of the past decade deliberately tearing apart their own fame.”

The band has sold 30 million records in the U.S., and an estimated 60 million albums worldwide. Pearl Jam has outlasted many of its contemporaries from the alternative rock breakthrough of the early 1990s and is considered one of the most influential bands of the decade. Allmusic calls it “the most popular American rock & roll band of the ’90s”. Though formed in 90’ their first album wasn’t until 1991 [Ten] which include hit songs such as Jeremy , Even flow , and Alive.

This album contains no booklet.
