Pearl Jam: Vs. (1993)

pearl jam vsBy Scott Goldfine

The second album from Seattle-based hard-rockers Pearl Jam will do nothing to impede the quintet’s snowballing superstardom. Led Zeppelin’s influence courses through their music, but Eddie Vedder’s edgy, chameleon-like singing and disenchanted lyrics set Pearl Jam apart.

This set holds together better than their debut, but Pearl Jam’s greatest work is probably yet to come.
