Combat Sports – The Vaccines Album Review



On their fourth album now, The Vaccines sound as good as ever. Even after losing their drummer Pete Robertson they still can produce, in fact they’ve taken a different direction from ‘English Graffiti’. I mean don’t get me wrong it was a decent album, but they’ve gotten even better.

The majority of ‘Combat Sports’ is the old Vaccines back, with their powerful indie rock songs it’s most definitely a heavy record. Songs such as ‘I Can’t Quit’, ‘Nightclub’ and ‘Surfing in the Sky’ show that the record has taken a completely different route.

Their is still some melodic soft songs on the album such as ‘Put It On A T-Shirt’ and ‘Maybe (Luck of the Draw)’ which shows the other side of this immense band. If that takes your fancy, and it does slow down the album a little.

‘Combat Sports’ has most definitely shown that The Vaccines still are one of Britain’s most exciting bands around.
