The Vaccines have always been a little rough around the edges. It is, without a doubt, one of the qualities that makes their music so enjoyable to listen to. So it's reassuring to hear the band hasn't lost their distinguishing touch with the lastest offering, 'Come Of Age'.

From the intense first single, 'No Hope', you know you're in for a wild ride. It's an ode to Generation Y, reflecting an attitude consistent with the age bracket ("I know I am soooo self-obsessed"). It's a perfect start to their album, with a blitz of solid noise - the sound we've come to associate with The Vaccines.

THE VACCINES - TEENAGE ICON

The new single, 'Teenage Icon' (the video clip for which can be found below), jumps out at you in a similar fashion - there's an explosion of guitars, and Peter Robertson's drums blast their way through the song. It's pacy, robust and catchy tune.

'Come Of Age' is a worthy follow-up to 'What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?'. It keeps alive the 80s rough rock feel, but offers tracks with a somewhat slower pace that stop it from feeling too repetitive. The one thing that does let this album down is the "wow" factor that came along with 'What Did You Expect' - an exciting new offering from an unknown band whose sound was refreshingly unique.

From the intense first single, 'No Hope', you know you're in for a wild ride.

If anything, The Vaccines have gotten better with age - as musicians, songwriters and performers. This album retains all the hallmarks of their debut, but with added depth and percipience. 'Coming Of Age' is sure to win them new fans to chant along at their live shows in Australia at the end of 2012.
