iTunes Review

Britain’s Vaccines hit in a big way across the pond with their singles-laden debut, What Did You Expect From the Vaccines? Their brand of post-punk-rooted commercial rock fits in nicely with bands like the Strokes and Arctic Monkeys, though the Vaccines’ occasional foray into a big, fist-pumping guitar sound (“All In White,” “Post Break-Up Sex”), might put off some stalwart indie-rockers. But the Vaccines have enough scruffy edge and reverb to work their charms on fans of, say, No Age or Male Bonding, and those songs present the band at their best. Just listen to opener “Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra),” a breakneck-paced, dizzyingly wonderful minute and a half of howling guitars and silly lyrics, or “Blow It Up,” a Jesus and Mary Chain-flavored tune full of corrosive, gritty guitar layers and atmospherics, yearning to be a pop song. “Wolf Pack” goes dangerously close into the “too big” category, but is saved with its insanely catchy chorus and cow-punk drum gallop, and “If You Wanna” has all the summertime bounce of Best Coast. Hopefully this young band will outlive the “big hit” backlash likely to come along, because they make darn good rock music.

The Vaccines are fantastic!

A great band if you enjoy listening to The Strokes, The Black Keys, The Arctic Monkeys or The White Stripes. Their sound is new and refreshing. Bottom line, if you listen to Post Break-Up Sex I'm sure you'll be hooked!

Blown Away

Its weird to fall inlove with a band from listening to one of their songs, and listening to the rest of their album just made me love them more. You can dance, laugh and cry to this album. It is truely going to become one of my favorites.
