The Vaselines, 'Sex With an X' (Sub Pop)

7
Sex With an X
Critical Mass
Label: Sub Pop

by christopherschultz

A whopping 23 years since their last album and with a competent new drummer in tow, the Vaselines have lost the wide-eyed wonder and ragged edges that made their brief, late-'80s run an indie-rock legend endorsed by Nirvana. But staying true to their party platform (sex, God, kissing, etc.), songwriters Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee remain the Ramones of sunbeam, patty-cake pop -- even if they sound less like awkward twentysomethings singing about cats and bikes, and more like the countless post-'90s alterna-rockers who owe them gratitude.
