Customer Reviews

A great debut that'll be a tough act to follow...

If like me, you started listening to these guys when they were the darlings on the cover of the NME and Melody Maker, you'll know that this album is a big departure from their earlier singles. Gone is the lo-fi dry production sound and in comes a big, room filling stadium rock production, full of atmosphere and more layers than a andrex tissue! At the time of release in 2001, this album was a breathe of fresh air. The U.K didn't have much to offer to stand up to the likes of the Foo Fighters so this brave new sound gave us hope. A one off appearance on Top of the Pops, with Som sporting a T-Shirt saying "One Hit Wonder" set the scene unfortunately. A six year hiatus has left us with little new material. Just a collection of b-sides and a live album to ponder whilst we wait for the follow up to be finally released. The album opens with what can only be described as a guitar doing an impression of a toilet flushing - sorry but it does sound like that! Never the less, the song eventually opens the album with a melodic instrumental ensemble of effects only to be followed up with the beast that is "Always Your Way", which sets the tempo for the rest of the album. From here the pace and style never really waivers. Som takes a brief break from melody to do a reasonably good impresion of Kurt Cobain during "C.O.R". Quite amusing and good for annoying the neighbours! Stand out tracks include "The Gentle Art of Choking", "Ode to the Red Queen" and "Under the Wheels"

My Vitriol are a band like no-other

One of the finest albums. Ever. Heavy bass lines mixed with angry lyrics overlaid with mesmeric and euphoric strings. Their sound hits you like a freight train and cushions you on the fall. Not just your usual 12 track album, Finelines provides the listener with a musical masterpiece.

great!

it occured to me that ive not listened to this in eons. its a real gem! the sound and the dark over tones reverberating all over the place are not typical of music that speeds by like this. a really interesting sound and great, honest rock songs!

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

U.K. quartet My Vitriol was formed in 1998 when Sri Lankan-born singer/songwriter Som Wardner met drummer Ravi Kesavaram at college in London. With a name inspired by a character in the Graham Greene novel Brighton Rock, the yet unsigned My Vitriol had soon put together a demo EP, Delusions of Grandeur, which was promptly discovered by Radio 1 and sparked media interest in the band. Activities were suspended, however, until exams at college were completed, and then it was...
