I've been a fan of Simon Posford's work since hearing the amazing 'Herb Gardern' track on Mystery of the Yeti (pre Hallucinogen & Shpongle) many years back in Goa. I wasn't that much into the trance movement which is ironic really considering the time I spent in Goa, although I did like the tracks 'LSD' & 'Shamanix' he did with Hallucinogen. The work Simon did on the Celtic Cross 'Hicksville' album was though really cool!

However, it wasn't until his Shpongle project that I really started to hear what sheer talent Simon Posford (and Raja & the others in Shpongle) had! Shpongle albums were ALL amazing and 'Tales of the Inexpressible' is still now one of my fav albums of ALL time!!! One album on a desert island... for me it would be 'Tales of the inexpressible' without a doubt! Yip, that for me is even above Pink Floyd!!!

As much as I like the many Top-drawer psy tracks from Aphex Twin, FSOL, Eat Static, Tripswitch, Entheogenic, Phutureprimitive, OTT, Shulman, Ozrics etc. I feel Shpongle managed to really NAIL that psy ambient sound for the FULL length of a whole album. (Saying that, OTT's 'Skylon' is something else!) While my fav psy individual tracks are from Aphex Twin, OTT etc it was Shpongle that have made my fav albums.

So when I later heard Younger Brother (I didnt realise until later on that this was Mr. Posford) I really liked 'A flock of bleeps'. Although not quite Shpongle, there were some killer tracks on 'flock...'. When I then heard 'Last days of Gravity' I realised that this project in itself was gonna be BIG, perhaps even bigger than Shpongle. Time will tell on that I guess. On 'Last days of Gravity' the tracks 'Happy pills' & 'Your friends are scary' in particular would get on ANY best of cd of all time for me.

Prologue

If I had a lire for all of Simon Posfords good tracks I would bail out Italy and have change.

Main Text

Over the years in his various guises he has made my jump, whoop and cry with delight and sadness!! Surely there should be a Composer Laureate in the UK. Right, enough praise, having read some of the other reviews, I expected to be a little revilied by the pop sounds!! All I can say is, if this is pop then the charts would be a happier place, agreed the production format is what would be called POP GOOD, but POP it isn't. Proper lyrical content with ethreal backing, flockin great!! Not mindless teenage witterings set to a borrowed track AKA POP!!

Unlike Flock of Beeps, there is far more vocal, but the mood is the same, a progressive growth throughout the album, rather like a collection of stories honed into a great chapter. The sampling is, as ever, spot on and make sme glow inside.Night leads me Astray being the crescendo to the vocal popesque before decent into good honest (psy) trance. Maybe I am a SP-Spotter, but I love this album and I strongly encorage anyone with independant thought to buy it! So thats most of the UK out then!! :)

Epilogue

I use Younger Brother as a lure, my partner "doesn't like Dance/Trance" (Metal bin smashing and cat squeezing or something is her bag), however, through the gift of Younger Brother and OTT to some extent, I have nearly got her to Eat Static!!

If you were to listen to this album without knowing that it was the latest work of Simon Posford and his band Younger Brother, you could reasonably label it pop-rock. That is the one and only reason certain fans have turned their nose up at this LP.
'Vaccine' is rarely, and only vaguely, reminiscent of the Younger Brother we already know. However, if you are a lover of music, you will be lucky enough to appreciate this frankly beautiful and infinitely moving new side of Posford's musical personality. This is songwriting and musical composition at its finest, and the production is as mind-blowing as it is has been with Posford's other projects (Shpongle, Hallucinogen, Celtic Cross, The Infinity Project). We can only wish that 'pop music' was remotely as polished and vibrant as the music on this album. 'Vaccine' proves that Posford's genius and appreciation of music knows no boundaries, unlike the tastes of some of his more unfortunate fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spinning into excellence 28 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
Right, I have had this album since it came out. I have purposefully left reviewing this album until I had given it a proper listening.
For me this was the most eagerly awaited album of the year and boy does it deliver. the band has evolved into something that is grown up and inventive. the band has matured into a band in its own right not as just a side project of Simon Posford and Benji Vaughan, with Ru Campbell on vocals intermittently.
Ru Campbell's voice is more prominent on this album and takes centre stage rather than being an occasional entity. His voice is both fragile and powerful, carrying the songs to greater heights. The highlights of the album are Shine, Night Lead me Astray, Pound a rhythm, Train and Sys 700. However, that is not to say that the other songs on the album are weaker than these tracks.
If you have not heard this band before, this is a highly recommended album. If you have heard them and haven't bought it yet - buy it.
