The Vines

Friday, 31 January 2003

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.
