Call me a late bloomer as I only got into The Vines a few years back when they first released the music video 'Anysound' exclusively on youtube. Since that time I bought 'Vision Valley' then worked my way backwards through their catalogue. And I must say, regardless as to whether you like either the raw sound of their debut 'Highly Evolved' or, like myself, prefer the more refined sound of Valley; you're more than likely to like the majority of what's to offer in 'Melodia'.

This album, and The Vines in general, have received somewhat negative reviews in the press due to their music having barely changed. In fact, Melodia sounds like the album 'Winning Days' should've been. Combining some of the non-conformist, off-beatness of Evolved but carrying some of the quick 2-minute, solid pop-rock of Valley. But that's not to say everything here is what's been heard before.

Whilst the above albums emphasised on continuous high charge rage fests, (and there is enough to mosh to in Melodia), the album really shines in the more sensitive songs. It's a given 'True as the Night' is the most heartfelt song the band have ever written, whilst Autumn Shade part 3 (A.S. III) being the superior song of the trilogy, and 'The Girl I knew' feeling more truthful and nostalgic than Mary Jane ever was.

Yes there is an under baked feel to some of the songs. When Vision Valley's 2-minute wonders felt acceptable, songs like 'Kara Jayne' here could've done with a bit more padding out or density. Never-the-less, even though Melodia's unlikely to be anyone's favourite, the album will by all means add a fair few more songs you'll love to listen to along with your past favourites. Yes, the album was waiting for.

I looked forward to this ablum, I really did. Having been a fan of The Vines since NME proclaimed (perhaps unwisely in retrospect) them the 'saviours of rock' almost ten years ago I expected this to be a return to form after the disappointing Vision Valley and it is...ish. Let's be honest, Craig Nicholls has never been the most original song writer, but then the mantra of 'if it isn't broke, don't fix it' is one that stood The Vines in good stead through their first two albums (yeah, I actually think Winning Days was an amazing album). As a result this is more of what would best described as a more melodic Kurt Cobain singing John Lennon songs. The only problem is that whilst still delivered with the same sort of conviction and gravitas as always, the quality of the songs aren't what they used to be. As the title would suggest this is a far more melodic album than Vision Valley, though there are certainly tracks with their fair share of the balls out rocking which made the Vines a name in the first place (Braindead for instance). One only needs to look at the track titles though to see that Nicholls has run out of ideas to some extent (Kara Jane a nod to the far superiour Mary Jane from Highly Evolved and Autumn Shade III, which is nothing to versions I and II). Equally some of the weightless, atmospheric vibe so in evidence in Mary Jane or Amnesia has fallen away, exposing a blandness to the lyrics which was always there to some extent, but not always never noticeable. True as the Night is a perfect example; the beginning is plodding, the lyrics are almost comically simple and the strings sound misplaced, but then half way through it finds its pace, Nicholl finds his voice and it becomes a gloriously floating, musically stirring statement of what might have been.Read more ›

This is very good, but probably not as good as highly evolved.

Nothing wrong with any of the tracks on the album, but a bit less that is special compared to highly evolved. Having said that I can still leave the CD in the car and have it on repeat play for a while so it has somthing very good about it.

If you like highly evolved, then you will probably like this. If you don't like highly evolved but do like Green Day then you may still like this. Highly evolved to me was 4-4.5 stars, this is just the 4 stars.

I have been a fan of the vines since highly evolved and seeing their, well, lets say energetic live perfromance at glasgow barrowlands. This album is easily the best they have done since highly evolved and is a fast moving album with only one song (true as the night) over 3 minutes, a great combination of accoustic songs and then the rip roaring songs such as get out and scream. excellent album, highly reccommend
