Moodswings is arguably My Vitriol's finest song, and any rock fan would be hard pressed to name another that is packed with so much drive. The main riff here is of behemoth proportions, not decorated with frilly hooks but rather a barage of epic rhythmic proportions. When it degenerates into the verse, and indeed into the swimmy chorus, there is the impression that everything could implode any minute. Words like 'I'm breaking down inside/It's just a matter of time' mirror the sense that this track, and the band playing it, are teetering very delicately on the edge of sanity.
The structure is fairly commonplace, a riff, verse, chorus, verse, chorus and then signiture instrumental break. Said 'break' (as named by muso-types) is typical of that found throughout Fine-Lines, chiming melodies that swirl drunkenly round Placebo-esque drive, building up to chaotic climaxes. Where Moodswings differs is here when the song should, by all rights, peak and end in a couple of hell-raising phrases, it decides that everything should collapse into the ferocious torrent that is the opening riff.
This outro is fuelled with such intense anger that one wonders if the devil himself wrote it. Maybe Som Warnder & co, undoubtedly one of the industries most talented groups are venting their frustration at having had such meagre success for what has been stunning work.
Any which way, it doesn't seem to matter. This track demands attention, and is worth the cost alone. The B-sides are very avarage, so maybe it is best to buy Between the Lines for a little more sterling. Oh and if you insist on buying the single, get CD which features Vapour Trails, a humble mixture of Losing Touch/Always Your Way and Cemented Shoes.

I read a comment in Melody Maker a while ago, following the release of the poorly-received 'Pieces': "I wish they'd make up their minds as to what they want to be, My Bloody Valentine or Nirvana" -- Why do they need to? Som's voice may remind you of cookie-cutter/wistful/American 3-chrord rock, but it's never insincere or commercially calculated - and any illusions that they fit into this category are shattered immediately when you hear the jingly-jingly layered guitars chime into action.
To me, Moodswings sounds slightly more sophisticated than most of the tracks on finelines and hopefully this is an indication of what their next album will sound/feel like. I haven't heard much on what people think of this, but I'm sure it'll be one of the best singles you'll hear this summer.

This is the new song from My ViTriol, the first to be released from 'Between The Lines'(which also includes a remastered US version of 'Finelines' - You lucky people!!)The single includes the BriLLiaNt song 'The Gentle Art Of Choking' US version, one of the best on the debut 'Finelines' and two very grooooovay versions of 'MooDswinGs'. Jeeeebus, this is a good buy! After getting ya hands on this, go get the album (just to remind you - 'Between The Lines':oP) My ViTrioL have done us proud!

Great Single, but expensive if u buy it from here! 3 Jan 2004
By "yamthief" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great double a-side single, but at $12.99 your better off buying the new double disk album entitled "Finlines:Between the Lines", which has all the tracks featured on the single plus 17 more. I payed only £11.99 for the double album from a local music retailer, hunt around for a decent price.
