Come of Age

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
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.
