The Vaccines are not “the saviours of British rock and roll” but What Did You… doesn’t need to be.

The Vaccines are at their best when they're upbeat, flecked with surf, and surprisingly hard to get out of your head.

The Vaccines are clenching onto rock and roll, and this album is an amicable chapter in the genre.

For the most part What Did You Expect From the Vaccines? fails to muster much sense of enthusiasm for itself beyond those first and last tracks.

Much of, if not all of What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? suffers from a complete lack of intelligence, candidness or originality: elements that help make guitar-based music interesting.

Listen to What Did You Expect enough and the whole thing starts to meld together.

The Vaccines releases their breakthrough album. The songs themselves feel so re-hashed from the indie rock scene in the mid 2000's. I just don't see much originality in these songs.
