Overview

2011's much hyped What Did You Expect from the Vaccines? had some defining moments that skillfully blended the snarky dissatisfaction of the Kaiser Chiefs with the stadium-ready, sonic expansiveness of late-period Jesus and Mary Chain. Like the Kaisers, the Vaccines are a singles band aiming for a solid greatest-hits collection, and Come of Age definitely has a few new fish to toss into the fryer. The album dispenses with the bombast of the band's debut, offering up 11 relatively disparate tracks that aim for the main floor instead of the nosebleed seats. The group's statement of purpose is summed up nicely in the first stanza of the ramshackle opener "No Hope," which finds Justin Young declaring "I could make an observation/If you want the voice of a generation/but I'm too self absorbed to give it clout." It's a fitting summary of what is, in essence, the job description for what the Vaccines do, and while they're certainly not alone in their crusade to provide an appropriate soundtrack for the "meh" generation, they've got it down to an elementary science.
