1 alright album and 1 mediocre album later....
Absolutely ridiculous, from what I've heard of their second album, I expected them to be another of those bands who nobody remembers by next year. Shows what can happen when Daddy puts money in Radio 1s pockets!
but they are a band that have totally passed me by. I hate it when this happens makes me feel old/out of touch.
The music is worse.
always thought they'd be huge. really pleased for them.
not a popular opinion i'll wager but there it is.
no brainer. i'd say less surprising than biffy clyro
thats why it sells so well, it's boring
more proper tunes please
Some proper music made by Lads for the blokes down the pub to sing along to after a shift down the mines, and you elitist snobs turn your nose up.
You'd probably rather listen to Noah Lennox fart down a microphone.
The Vaccines suck at it though
riding the wave of popularity. they're not going to be a musically important band, they know that, they don't care, they never set out to be. they're about having a good time and they're really good at that (i'm not particularly a fan but i don't hate them either).
if they go away for too long people will absolutely move on without them and they'll be forgotten, but by keeping in everyone's minds - and the media complicit in keeping up the atmosphere of breathless hysteria around them - they've made sure they can get to this level.
even though i kind of can't really be bothered with them, at the same time i think good on 'em. they know who they are and where they fit, and they know they would've been done for if they laboured over some "difficult" second album for three years. write more pop songs, in the studio quick, job done, back on the road.
More just *very lucky*.
and they will keep doing well
given that they've got Fucked Up (!!!!!!!!!) supporting I would presume they've not hurt for ticket sales there.
Will Vaccines fans (12-16 year old girls) appreciate Fucked Up?
I mean, what?
used to pretty much be the pinnacle that non-stadium bands aspired to.
