Rolling Stone
Few American bands have arrived more clearly talented than this one did with "Ten;" and "Vs." tops even that debut.

Vs. may not reach the majestic heights of Ten, but at least half the record stands with Pearl Jam's best work.

Entertainment Weekly

Hipper Northwest bands like Mudhoney would give their Doc Martens for a singer with a fifth of Eddie’s personality. Do yourself a favor—take out an insurance policy on his vocal cords.

Despite some of the politics seeming a little forced and losing steam towards the end, you cant deny the greatness and importance of this album in the landscape of grunge

Very good. I'ts full of their personality, but it's also quite claustrophobic and top-40 oriented. Not that that's necessarily bad. The vocals and the riffs are great.
