What Did You Expect From the Vaccines?
Critical Mass
Release Date: May 31, 2011
Label: Columbia

by Barry Walters

Eagerly filling the recent vacuum of great U.K. guitar bands, this London foursome draws on the Jesus & Mary Chain tradition of sweet early '60s pop'n'roll married to sour punk noise: "Wreckin' Ball (Ra Ra Ra)" is an 82-second volley of adrenaline guaranteed to make Billy Idol dance with himself; "If You Wanna" delivers on its Ramones-worthy title with a tsunami of tension, while "Post Break-Up Sex" seems destined to adorn a million rueful mixtapes.
