Notes:
Vs. is the second studio album by American rock band Pearl Jam, released on October 19, 1993 through Epic Records. After a relentless touring schedule in support of their 1991 debut album Ten, Pearl Jam headed into the studio in early 1993 facing the challenge of following up the commercial success of its debut. The resulting album, Vs., featured a rawer and more aggressive sound compared with the band's previous release. It was the band's first collaboration with producer Brendan O'Brien, and their first album with drummer Dave Abbruzzese.

Pearl Jam decided to scale back its commercial efforts for Vs., including declining to produce music videos for any of the album's singles. Upon its release, Vs. set the record for most copies of an album sold in its first week, a record it held for five years. Vs. occupied the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart for five weeks, the longest duration for a Pearl Jam album. The album has been certified seven times platinum by the RIAA in the United States.

There seems to be a lot of mixed reviews on this pressing. I'm not usually one for reissues and remasters etc. but somehow I have a copy of this and it's the only one I have. I think it sounds pretty good but it is definitely heavily compressed. I haven't heard the original to see if this is how it is meant to sound though. Being one of my favourite Pearl Jam albums, would you say I'm missing out? Should I pick up an original copy?

I think this pressing sounds good. It doesn't have striking clarity or stunning stereo separation but the sound is very full and spacious. The drums sound punchy and powerful and the low end is driving. Where I think its lacking is the vocals can sound compressed at times. And I wouldn't say things sound muddy but for example, the drums may get buried in the mix during the guitar solos or the low end becomes less clear during some of the more harder rock parts. But I think the overall balance is good and I wouldn't say it sounds terrible. What's good is the remastering captures the energy of the music well. If only the vocals were a little more present, this would be better. As far as the quality of the vinyl, even though it's United Records Pressing, I have no issues. Flat, centered, no surface noise, a few stray clicks and pops, comes in polylined sleeve so the vinyl surface was clean. Comes in laminated, thick tip-on gatefold. Having never heard an original, I'm happy with what this remaster brings to the table. For around $20 it's a deal and will do for a clean copy to spin.

This release brings a smile to my face.
Not only is it beautiful but the sound quality is as good as the original pressing.
Also, even though this is a picture disc there is next to no surface noise hearable.

This is a great pressing!!!

Really crappy pressing. Mine has two defects, very deep scratches/gouges right from the factory, 1st on "Leash", the other at the start of W.M.A. Save your money and don't buy this release.
