The Vines

So plen­ty of peo­ple think that The Vines sound just like Nir­vana. I can see what they mean. Plen­ty of peo­ple also agree that Creed sounds just like Pearl Jam. I agree with them. Why do I like The Vines and abhor Creed? Per­haps its because every Creed song sounds the same, or per­haps the fact that Creed is copy­ing a band that is still around. or maybe i’m a pompous ass and i don’t like them mere­ly because plen­ty of oth­er peo­ple do.

I’m fine with The Vines, as I’ve said before. Like, 4 sen­tences ago. Their songs are rec­og­niz­ably The Vines while explor­ing the dif­fer­ent pos­si­bil­i­ties of their sound. You might have heard “Get Free” get­ting radio time as their sin­gle, but I like “Home­sick” per­son­al­ly.
