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.
