Review #14: The Vaccines - What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?

Well, to answer their question, I was expecting a lot. I was expecting a huge debut, full of guitars and no nonsense lyrics that say what they mean.  And that's exactly what we got.
Don't go thinking they've done this themselves though. A British nation starved of a decent guitar band, since the 'Arctic Monkeys', basically went for the best band they could find with the credentials 'uses guitars'. This has most certainly helped them along, and you can't help but think without that they probably wouldn't be as big as they are now.
But this is most definitely a good album. Their playing resembles that of 'The Ramones', which seem so pivotal to 'The Vaccines' sound, it's hard to believe that would have an album without them. But this is a review of 'The Vaccines' not 'The Ramones'.
So yes, well done guys. This is good stuff. Short. And. Sharp.
That's what we like to see. And did I mention. They use guitars.
