11 Songs, 32 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After the pop direction of third album English Graffiti, The Vaccines return to their London rock ’n’ roll roots with taut riffs, shouty choruses, and the fearless sense of fun that characterized their 2011 debut. Bright-eyed vocals and punchy guitar match the urgency of the songs’ lyrics—“You can’t change me, can you?” screams Justin Hayward-Young on the infectiously upbeat “I Can’t Quit.” Elsewhere, the raging “Nightclub” pulsates with nostalgia for student life, while the contemplative and romantic “Maybe (Luck of the Draw)” offers a brief but emotive slowing of pace.

Don't Call It A Comeback!!!

I have been a Vaccines fan since the infectious Break Up Sex single came out. This album returns to the roots of the first album. With the resurgence of British bands here in the States with The Struts, Catfish and the Bottlemen, etc this is the perfect time for this album. It is really tough to pick out a favorite batch of songs cause all are great, really there is not a bad song on here. My favorites are I Can't Quit, Maybe (Luck of the Draw), and Take It Easy. It is rare that a band can take a pop/punk/melancholic sound and make it sound so good. 5 stars for me.

Fantastic!

My favorite of their albums!! It's got the excitement and freedom of WEDUE, the dark moody rebelliousness of COA, and the dramatic brashness of EG. It's such a great combination of their best traits and I really think this is their best work. Nightclub is probably my favorite! Everyone sounds like their best, but Justin's vocals are particularly fantastic throughout. They've maintained their classic sound while adding some more power and confidence. I'm so happy to own this album and it was well worth the wait. Go ahead and buy it, you won't regret it!!!!
