With Get Free being the only stand out track from this album, Highly Evolved ends up feeling like a lackluster garage rock album which doesn't do much to push the genre or excite me as a listener.

Average: 6.2/10
The band from Sydney wishes to shake the rock world with a generic debut that has earned the support of the press.
Unfortunately, that's not enough and they have to work harder to prove that they deserve all that promotion.
Well the music industry wasn't able to hit on all of the "The" bands in the early aughts.
Better stuff out there
The Vines were the red-headed stepchilded thrown with the "The" bands of the new rock revolution in the early 2000s. When really, they mostly had some post-Nirvana swagger, and clunky punk. There's not special or intriguing here. It just happened to be released at the right now.
