Album Review

Interestingly, the press kit for You and Others, the second album by London dad-rock quartet Vega 4, selectively glosses over any mention of the band's 2003 debut album Satellites, basically presenting the group as a new band. Overall, though, You and Others isn't a departure from Vega 4's debut album, or from any of the other post-Coldplay U.K. pop bands it sounds so much like. The singles "You and Me" and "Life Is Beautiful" are catchy pop-rockers in the general style of Travis and Snow Patrol: Johnny McDaid's earnest vocals and Bruce Gainsford's U2-derived guitar sounds will sound comfortingly familiar to anyone who knows Chris Martin as more than Gwyneth's husband and Apple's dad. The rest of You and Others is similarly inoffensive: tuneful, at times very much so, but with absolutely no surprises, from the bombastic "Papercuts" to the almost folkish swirl of "A Billion Tons of Light." Look for pretty much every song on this album to play over the closing scene of one soapy TV drama or another during the 2007-2008 season.

Customer Reviews

a breathe of fresh air

Wow - after loving the `You and me' and 'Traffic Jam' singles, this album really marks out Vega 4's unique sound. The stand out tracks for me, other than the previously mentioned singles, are 'Life Is Beautiful', 'Bullets' and 'Tearing Me Apart'. Buy it, enjoy it and I guarantee these songs will live with you through those difficult times during the day when you don't want to be in the ofiice!

Don't get me wrong

This is quite a good album, the slight problem is that it sounds similar to lot of other stuff and does not push boundaries...still there is a lot worse out there. Good lyrics and well produced, but they will need to push a bit harder if they want to be noticed.

Top Marks

This album is great. This is a new band with a brilliant debut album - there isnt a song on it that i dont like! my favourite song is life is beautiful but theyre all good and all different. Similar voice to snow patrol but better lyrics, and more original songs!! Dont miss out give it a try

Years Active: '00s

Part of the relentlessly polite school of dad rock that flowered in Great Britain after Coldplay (think Muse, Snow Patrol, Travis, etc.), Vega4 is based in London, although of the band's original lineup, only bassist Simon Walker was an actual Englishman. The rest of Vega4 migrated into London from the colonies: lead guitarist Bruce Gainsford is from New Zealand, drummer Bryan McLellan is from Canada, and lead singer Johnny McDaid is from Derry, Northern Ireland, where as a teenager he took guitar...
